With Great Anticipation

We finally had our anatomy ultrasound today, revealing the genders of our babies! Unfortunately, DH could not be there since he recently started a new job, but my Mom and daughter came along. We arrived early for the appointment with my full bladder as instructed by the doctor. The apppointment was at 3:45pm and they had just called in a patient at 3:40pm. I'm sorry, but when a doctor tells you to come to an appointment with a full bladder, he'd BETTER take you on time. I was about to burst by 3:45pm. The receptionist apologized for the wait and said to empty my bladder some. She gave me some more water, and sure enough, by the time the doctor called my name (at 4:20pm!), I was ready to pee again!

The appointment went well. The doctor could not see Baby A's face and he had a difficult time seeing Baby B's heart chambers. From everything he saw, nothing looked abnormal.

For the big news, Baby A is a girl and Baby B is a girl!!! I'm a little surprised. I did hear with IVF that there is an increased chance for boys. Poor DH is officially outnumbered. Don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled with girls!!! However, I do feel disappointed for DH; I was hoping one boy for him. He's great with our daughter and I know he'll be just as great with two more girls. On a positive note, I did save most of our daughter's clothing and toys! We already have plenty of pink in this house! :)

I'm just happy they look healthy and are measuring right on target. What a great day!


  1. Congratulations! Twin girls are sooo fun but I understand the feeling of a little disappointment on DH's behalf (I did too for mine) but I'm sure yours will be just as happy also. So excited for you and happy to hear an update. Good luck with the downhill stretch :)

  2. Thanks Michelle! Can't believe I've made it this far...I feel so lucky! :)
