Okay, I could have swore that I posted this last week. I think I tried to but the sight was moving too slow and I closed the page while it was still processing.
Then I come here this morning and I'm wondering where my post went.
Well here it is again. Sorry if I leave something out.
Thursday we had out 16 week scan and we found out we are having a boy and a girl!! I’m so excited yet don’t want to get too excited yet. The u/s technician first told us that it might be too early to tell before she started scanning and said we would know for sure at the 20 week scan. But then during the scan she told us. Baby A is a girl and baby B is a boy. DH and I are so happy and excited. I just hope we get the same results at the 20 week scan. But if not, we’ll just tell everyone…opps, they were wrong. No biggie. I just know not to run out and purchase anything yet. LOL But everything looks great with the twins. They are both measuring exactly we’re they are suppose to. The boy is measuring a little bigger than the girl but not much. They are both around 5 ounces. The girl is a little more laid back. She moved for us during the u/s. But the boy was all over the place. He would not sit still. It took the technician a while to get all his measurements. She needed to measure his arm and couldn’t because he would not sit still. He was flipping all over the place. I think she was getting frustrated. LOL She said a 16 week u/s usually doesn’t take this long. LOL DH and I found it very funny and entertaining that he was all over the place. The technician did not. Finally she got the last measurement which was his arm. Everything measured just right for both of them. The only bad thing is that I have 3 fibroids. One is pretty big and right over the little girl. The doctor told me it was nothing to worry about and that they would stop growing in a few weeks. But I have been feeling a slight pain where the large fibroid is. SO the doctor says since the little girl is right underneath it she’s probably kicking it and that’s the pain I feel. I just that these fibroids don’t cause any harm to my babies.
--That's so exciting. So you're having a boy and a girl also. I think that's so cool. I wonder if they do that on purpose. LOL But they probably dont know what they are putting back. It's just the luck of the draw.
Your sonogram sounded a lot like mine. We got to see everything on Friday. Heart, kidney, bladder. All that good stuff. The technician measured the head, arms, legs, etc. That's probably the most I have ever seen my little ones. I definitely think the twin factor has something to do with the m/s. I know having twins makes m/s worse because your hormones levels are higher with twins. Also, my doctor told me that when I am nauseous it usually means the babies are being active. I love maternity clothes also. I need to invest in some more. They are expensive.
--Sorry your little one did not cooperate. But not much longer and you'll know. But at least when you find out you'll know for sure. I will probably spend the next 4 weeks wondering if the 16 week scan was correct.
Glad to hear he/she is healthy.
--You're so lucky. I’m not even sure if I've felt the babies move or not. LOL It might have been them, then again might have been gas. LOL I’ll be happy when I can distinguish between the two. What does it feel like?
--WOW, sorry to hear about the mumps. You poor thing. You must have been miserable. Glad to hear that it did not affect your precious little one. It amazes me the things we go thru or take that do not affect our little ones. I guess they are stronger than we give them credit for.
I'm still cramping a lot on and off. I hope that means they are growing. My friends tell me I have had a growth spurt. I look the same to me. LOL
Is anyone having trouble sleeping. I read it’s best to sleep on your left side. I start sleeping out on that side and then end up on my back which I hear is a big no no. Then I wake up every morning with a stiff back. I posted a question about a good sleeping pillow. No one has responded yet.
Hope everyone is doing well. Hugs and kisses to you all and your baby bellies!
