pink & blue

After today's ultrasound, we are 98% sure that we are having a boy and a girl!  I guess there's always a chance the doctors are wrong or the pictures are bad, but we feel pretty confident.  We are so, so excited!  Bring on the pink & blue!

Tomorrow is an exciting day...we are going back to the doctor to confirm the sexes!  Tomorrow, however, is also a difficult day.  It is the estimated due date for our first pregnancy, the ectopic.  It's ironic that these two things fall on the same day, but I am hopeful that the excitement of tomorrow can keep the more difficult feelings in check.  After all, I am utterly grateful to be expecting my twins.  Yes, I wish I had met that first baby, but if I had these twins would have never been conceived.

15 weeks and a little news....

We are 15 weeks tomorrow!!!  I am so, so thankful to be this far along.  We had an ultrasound this morning, and of course were dying to know if the doctor could see anything as far as sexes go, and....Baby A is definitely a boy!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are not telling anyone in real life, but I was dying to share, so here I am.  I was surprised that our doctor called it as confidently as he did, but it was VERY evident.  Baby A was definitely not shy!  I am so, so excited.  My husband is the most wonderful man in the world, and I couldn't be more ecstatic about him having a son!  Plus, I am totally in love with our boy name, so I'm super pumped that we definitely get to use it.  It's my grandmother's maiden name and my father-in-law and his father's middle name, so it has lots of meaning for both sides of the family.

Everyone seemed to think Baby B was a girl, but there wasn't enough confidence to call it.  After doing some google imaging, I really think we may have a boy/girl set on the way, but still have a tiny feeling that Baby B will turn out to be a boy as well.  We have our next ultrasound in two weeks and should be able to tell for sure then.

first trimester down

I am officially through the first trimester, and so, so thankful.  The twins are still doing beautifully.  Every day seems like another miracle...another day closer to viability.

I did start a non-anonymous blog for family and friends, and was extremely honest about our path to this pregnancy.  And, I'm happy to report, that I have gotten the most amazing feedback.  Sharing our story has touched so many people and even led some to share their own stories with me.  Thank you for all of your encouragement to be honest--definitely the right decision.
