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:
