The verdict is in...

So far, we have two healthy, growing babies! We just got home from a 1 hour and 45 minute anatomy ultrasound. The tech looked at absolutely everything - every limb, bone, organ, fluid in certain places, the list goes on. She ran measurements and got their weights. Twin A currently weighs a hearty 348g (or 3/4 of a pound to you non-metric folks). Twin B comes in slightly smaller at 330g. Overall, A is measuring one day ahead of B, but that's no biggie. They are both weighing slightly above the average 20-week fetus weight actually. Jenn just told me, "keep eatin'!"

The babies tossed and turned and punched and kicked, making it a little bit more difficult for the tech to get all of her measurements. Thankfully, she was patient with our little gymnasts. Ultrasounds are incredible. She showed us the 4 chambers of the heart, their perfect little spines and even their mouths opening and closing. The finishing touch was twin A giving us a big wave goodbye as the tech got the last measurement. Here are pictures of each baby:

Oh so I guess you're all wondering what we're having?! Did any of you scroll to the bottom to see if I actually mentioned it? ;) We're having 2 girls! We never expected this but are excited nonetheless! Jenn is actually already out buying their ballet shoes...kidding, of course! She's actually sitting on the couch trying to get in touch with her inner girly-girl, just in case!!


  1. Yay! Congratulations! I thought that you would find out it was two girls (dunno why). They are fraternal though, right?

    Beautiful ultrasound pictures.

    You must be so happy. :)
