"Here's looking at you, kids"





"Toto, I've got a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore. We must be over the rainbow." My favorite line from The Wizard of Oz and I thought it was quite fitting for today. Steve and I are just thrilled! We can't believe that this really worked! Their heartbeats were both strong and both are measuring right on schedule. Twin A is measuring 6w4d and Twin B is measuring 6w6d. Yippee!! Our new twin due date will be July 26th.

I'll finish off with some more Wizard of Oz...as our favorite wizard (Dr. Schoolcraft) gets all of the credit...

"Somewhere, over the rainbow, way up high,
There's a land that I heard of once in a lullaby.
Somewhere, over the rainbow, skies are blue,
And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true."

So happy for you. They are such handsome little men already. Merry Christmas! (belated) And 2009 will be an exciting year for all of you!

Penny said...

Yay, congrats! With a twin pregnancy, isn't the actual due date before the gestational due date? or is that the actual due date, July 25? If it's the latter, perhaps you'll have two little firecrackers on the 4th of July.

ABK said...

Congratulations to you and your husband! How exciting!

I have to ask how you're feeling? If you're having symptoms, when did they start? My husband and I just received a BFP with high levels after 2+ years (IVF+ICSI). I don't feel pregnant yet so it's so hard to feel like it's real. When do the symptoms start?!?!?

Jen said...

I'm late to give my congrats - but CONGRATS!!!!

Seriously? - Erin said...
