I'm finally able to declare that we are 100% having boys! We were only 90% sure before with the reliability of the genetic testing, but this week's ultrasound showed both were clearly boys. My pics aren't perfectly clear, but the arrows point to the important part. ;-)
Both are doing well, weighing in at 4 ounces each! According to their gestational age, they should weigh between 2.1-3.2 ounces, so needless to say we are thrilled with their growth so far. Both had perfect heartbeats and were bouncing all over the screen (as usual). I'm still not ready to declare them "too rowdy" at this point. They seem to be having a lot of fun. (lol)
I'm doing well, but did get to check off my first "unscheduled" visit to the doctor this week. Had some significant pains in upper abdomen/rib cage yesterday, unrelieved with rest and fluids. Went in for an ultrasound to check my cervix to make sure it wasn't shortening and I wasn't having pre-term labor. Thankfully, everything looked good. Was instructed to lie flat for rest of night, drink lots of water, etc. They suspected it was just round ligament pain with some serious stretching going on, so I guess they were probably right. Anyway, I'm feeling better today.
As far as my weekly Nest/Bump update, they are the size of lemons (yummy) this week. "Your adorable little fetus is busy with thumb sucking, toe wiggling, and (not so cute but equally amazing) making urine and breathing amniotic fluid as the liver, kidneys and spleen continue to develop. Lanugo (thin, downy hair) is growing all over the body for warmth. " They are supposed to measure 3.4 inches, but I bet mine may be a little bigger. :-)
On a funny note, Steve had a dream we had 6 baby boys that all looked like him last night. They were all sitting on some sort of shelf, in a stacked slots. So, glad to know our children were beautiful in his dreams, but 6? Seriously? NO! Anyway, he had to select one to put in a commercial or something. How hysterical!
Hope everyone has a great weekend! Looks like we are going to have to get serious about buying some baby gear soon now that we know the sexes for sure...
