It's a...

Boy and a Boy!!!

The ultrasound went very well yesterday, and there was no denying the gender of the babies, who are snuggled in my uterus head to head. One measures at 7 ounces and the other at 8 ounces, which I'm told is right on track. Their heartbeats were strong. My peri said they're still a little too small to detect any potential problems visually, but they currently look great so I have nothing to worry about for the time being. My next appointment is in another 4 weeks. So worry probably won't start creeping back in until 3 weeks from now as I wait to see them again.

The peri said my one placenta is still over my cervix, so we'll be keeping a close eye on that even though it could still move out of the way in time for delivery. So he says. My regular OB kinda thinks it will stay right where it is. But hey, he's the twin specialist, not her. I was warned there may be spotting, but so far other than one incident a month ago, I've been fine.

The peri says now that I'm feeling better and have more energy, I should go out and prepare for the babies as much as possible, since I may very well need bed rest in the third trimester. Doctor's orders to shop--hooray! But would you believe I woke up with yet another bad cold this morning? My immune system totally sucks right now. So I'm at home, tissues in one hand and computer mouse in the other as I troll Pott*ry Barn_Kids for boy nursery themes.

Happy day!

Oh wow! This is fabulous news. It's funny - it seems like most IVF frat. twins are boy/girl or girl/girl - so it's cool that you have two boys. Not scientific of course, but just my observation. How exciting!

Now you can really start planning and thinking about two boy names and all that fun stuff!!

I hope your cold goes away soon...
