My big ultrasound...

Mon, 10-26-2009 - 5:13pm

Looks like we are on the blue team once again. lol The doc was not very good about looking, which was irritating but in the end he said if he had to guess he would say both are boys. It is hard to say for sure though, because he kept pointing out shots that "could" be girls. I am a little bummed, but like dh said I have been through too much heartache to be too sad about 2 healthy BOYS!

It was fun for dh to see it all, I don't think he ever saw an ultrasound from the other twins. We saw baby B yawn, he thought that was the coolest. We saw Baby B kick A in the head many times, lol. It was awesome to see 2 healthy little guys moving and shaking in there. They both measure the same, 18 weeks 1 day and weigh 1/2 lb. I am measuring 25 weeks!

He did say not to bet on it just yet, I get another ultrasound the week of Thanksgiving so we should definitely see for sure then. Until we see otherwise, I am going with 2 boys. I am baking 2 blue cakes as we speak. I am going to let the older kids cut into it tonight to find out the sexes!

Oh, and I got talked into getting the swine flu shot. Dh really wanted me to have it so I did. My arm HURTS right now, it is so sore. Ugh

Congrats!! That is exciting to be 'maybe' having 2 more boys!! Kind of frustrating that he didn't spend more time making sure, but at least you get another one soon!!

Yay for a good appointment, boo to the doctor and his half interest in finding out genders.

I've gotten ODD the H1N1 mist, the shots weren't available two weeks ago when we took the kids for shots. I'm not eligible yet for the shot either because my twins are a little too old (under 6 months) for me to qualify through the caregiver part, and I'm too old to get it yet on my own. So I'm in a holding pattern about getting my shot. Hopefully next month when the babies go back with ODD for her 3 year well visit they'll have the shots in place.

Thanks Carly, how many kids do you have and what ages are they? I love meeting others with big families too, how fun!

My arm is feeling almost normal today, thank goodness! There are a bunch of new cases of swine flu around here so I am feeling more and more glad that I got it.

Thanks Jaime and Elissa! I kind of wish my Peri would do more of the ultrasounds now, his machine is better and I like his manner better too. My doc has been kind of territorial lately though, so he wants to do them.

I hope you are able to get the shot soon Elissa!

The cake idea is from the show about the Duggar family, 18 and counting so steal away it wasn't mine! It was fun though, I was imagining a blue and pink layered one, obviously it didn't go that way. lol I hope you get pink in yours!
