It has taken sooooooooo long to get all of the results from amnio, but I’ll explain about that later. The most important thing is that they are both healthy with no known issues. I can’t express how relieved I am, how much of a heavy weight has held my heart down. Now my heart is light and full of joy.
So now the Big Reveal…I posted a poll to see if you could guess the gender of the monsters.
The poll question was:
What flavor are the monsters?
A: Strawberry (2 girls)
B: Boysenberry (2 boys)
C: A scoop of each (1 boy, 1 girl)
Did you guess correctly?
Can you tell from the photo?
Give up yet?
Yes, that my friends is two scoops of STRAWBERRY ice cream. We are pregnant with two little girls, or as I call them “Grrrl Monsters”.
We had a great appointment at the MFM for my 20 week ultrasound. They are measuring in the 70th percentile, way up from a month ago’s 40th percentile. Their weight is estimated at 14 ounces. Here are the latest ultrasound pics
For more good news, I have been taken off of bed rest! The cervix is looking good and closed at about 3.1 cm. The previa continues to migrate away from the cervix but we aren’t done yet. I’ve had no cramping or bleeding or complications. I am still advised to take it easy, but at least I can sit up, use a chair, cook dinner, run a couple of errands if I need to. DrGav told me to use good judgment and try to stay off my feet as much as possible. I go back again for another quick check in a week and then I may get to every other week afterwards.
mekate asked if there were going to be any belly shots. I have decided to post, but I have to say that I am normally apple shaped and big breasted too. As an added bonus these two have surely blossomed that into a OMG I’M HUGE! situation.
Twin B “Pip” is currently laying sideways across the top and is and making the belly extra huge. I am happy about this, but was a little shocked when I saw the photo myself. :-)
I’m just so happy right now because there is really a lot of great news this week with many of my bloggidy friends.
Oh, and the strawberry ice cream?
The best I have ever ate.
