We're going to have our hands full!!

We had such an amazing experience today. We got to the Maternal and Fetal Medicine office at 9:30 to fill out paperwork and about 10:10 our ultrasound tech took us back. It's funny because her name is Jeannie too. She spent a little over an hour scanning and measuring the babies. After she asked me how far along I am, 17 weeks today, she asked if we knew the sex yet. We said no and she asked if we'd like to know and I immediately snapped Definitely! That was the first thing she did, determine the sex of both. At first she couldn't get a good look then bam, the money shot! Baby A is a boy. Then she found baby B and immediately we got a good flash. Baby B is a boy. Two boys!! We won't be able to find out if they're identical until birth. We are super excited. Since I didn't really have a feeling, I didn't feel any disappointment or anything except joy when we found out. The measurements on both boys look great. They're healthy and their hearts are still strong: Baby A 154 bpm, Baby B 162 bpm. They both are weighing about 5 ounces and are very close in size. The doctor came in to look at a few things, including my cervix which looks good, and she said there were a few things/details that they couldn't see as well as they'd like to so we go back in 4 weeks to have another ultrasound. We get to see our boys in exactly 1 month from today. Baby B was kicking all around and it looked like he was kicking his brother in the head. We really are going to have our hands full.....but our hearts will be overfilled with love!

We're having BOYS!!!

The crib we picked out is on sale so we're going to buy them tonight. I'm also going to order the bedding today too! How exciting. Things feel like they're at a whole new level!! What a wonderful blessing :)
