Second trimester

Can't believe how fast it has gone by. Everything continues to go great I feel great and loving feeling them move all around. Had some blood pressure issues but it's maintaining now so they aren't to concerned. We did find out baby B (Ashlynn) has only a 2 vessel cord where they should have a 3 vessel. From what we are told it's very common and more so in twins and rarely has any issues. They are just going to watch her closer to make sure she is still growing as she should. We did have to do a echocardiogram on their hearts to make sure there were no issues (since the 2 vessel could sometimes cause issues). All was perfect they see no issues at all nor any future appts woohoo. We still haven't been able to get really good pics yet they are both all over the place and moving to much or facing head down and hiding.

Latest pics:

And Ashlynn with her hand behind her head and Conner's foot in her face. Causing trouble already!

Latest belly shot at 27 weeks

And we have.....

We found out the sexes of the little peanuts at our 19 week appt. It was one of those I want to know, no I don't, ok I do want to know things. We were VERY excited and even though it was still a little early they were like 100% for sure with baby A and 99.9% with baby B.

So baby A is.....A BOY :). Conner James at 19 weeks. He was making it known for everyone he is a boy and not shy at all.

And baby B is.....A GIRL :). Ashlynn Marie at 19 weeks. She was a little more discreet unlike her brother and hates pictures so we haven't been able to get very good ones yet.

First trimester

I can't believe it has been so long since I have last updated my posts. There is so much since the weeks have flown by I'll try to remember everything. Everything in the first trimester went great, no morning sickness just extreme tiredness and a little nausea. We had our first u/s appt. with the high risk Dr. at about 15 weeks, which was amazing to see them again and how much they had changed from the previous appt. at 8 weeks earlier. We are seeing the HR Dr. every four weeks for growth checks so we will have lots of pics :).

Here are their 15 week shots:

Second u/s

It still amazes me to see them and their little h/b's. We were sooo excited to see them again for our second appt. they are both doing great and getting big :0). This is the latest picture of them they even got their own picture and frames!
Baby A - h/b 158

Baby B - h/b 151

Our babies together

And one of the furbaby with his new brother(s) and/or sister(s)

MiracleS do happen!!

Our first u/s went great we were so happy our RE was there and he was so pleased for us. We immediately saw a beautiful white flicker that brought instant tears to my eyes. It was so amazing I can't describe it I never thought I would see the day. The h/b was nice and strong and the little bean is adorable already.

After they did all the measurements, which are all right on track woohoo the RE said ok let's have a look at the other (insert mouth dropping here). I couldn't believe the words that were coming out of his mouth. He just looked at us and smiled!

Sure enough there was a second h/b flickering away just the same, which was brought on by more tears. I couldn't believe what we were seeing after everything we had been through I would have never guessed it would have actually worked this time and they BOTH took! Both looked great and measuring right on track. My official due date is 17 Dec. but they are expecting me to go early :).

Here is the first shot of our precious little one!

Our first u/s

Is scheduled WOOHOO!!! I'm so stinking excited because when I initially called to make the appt. I was told I probably wouldn't be able to see our RE since they rotated days. Sure enough he wasn't on the day I needed it and I don't care for the one that was. I talked to our Nurse and she contacted our RE who said he would be more than happy to do it for us. He is fitting us in on schedule which I'm so thankful for :).

We go in on April 30th at 10:45 the day can't come soon enough! We are soooo excited yet so nervous. We just want everything to be perfect with the baby or babies! Hopefully we will also get to hear a nice strong heartbeat (or two) also that would be the icing on the cake for sure!

Belly Shots

It still seems surreal to talk about a baby but I'm loving every minute. I have always wanted to be able to wear the cute maternity clothes (which I think is going to happen sooner rather than later) and have the big belly (which is happening way sooner than expected) so I couldn't wait to start with the belly shots. I thinks it's neat to watch the progress and I can't really tell a difference from week-to-week quite yet. I feel huge and hoping a lot of it is because I'm still on a lot of meds (Endometrin and Estrace 2x a day) which they say a side effect is bloating. Just at awkward stage and feel more fat than preggo :).

First picture at 5w3d

And today at 6w6d - looking and feeling like 6 months LOL
