We are pleased as punch!
The tech said they are long and will be tall... not sure if she could tell that, I suppose they measured long limbs? DH was in the room tho and he's 6'6" so... it stands to reason that they would be tall!
She said both were wiggly! But she said the boy was "rambunctious" and was going to be a "handful!" I think he's the one I feel moving a lot. During the ultrasound, he was kicking his sister in the face! Rude!
My instructions were to drink only 16 oz of water one hour before the appt. She said the reason for that is b/c with a full bladder they will have a better time seeing my birth canal. My bladder wasn't full enough tho so she had to do a transvaginal u/s to check that out. The whole thing took a very long time - she had to take every measurement twice she said, for two babies... She said they always do every measurement twice. And did you know they measure the velocity of the fluid moving in the umbilical cord? It was very interesting.
I was told if anything major was wrong my dr would call me this afternoon and he did not. So I'll confirm with him next week at our appt that everybody is doing well. I feel good about it.
Sorry so long...
bring on the pink... the blue... the green... the yellow... we'll have it all in this house!!
Happily married, busy mom to a houseful :-)
Expecting again early Oct 2014!
Isn't it funny how people want to label behavior of fetuses?!? My tech kept calling Zeus (Baby A) a "troublemaker"! Give me a break!!

I have never had twins myself but my sister in law had 2 boy/girl sets and they loved growing up with each other. They are so close and it is great. I love them all. I am so happy for you. It will be a wonderful and blessed journey.
I've been suspecting twins and I just checked out your belly pics and oh my I am *way* bigger. I know everyone is different yada yada but that sure doesn't make me feel better :

neveryoumindthere - maybe you're having twins!? I think I'm technically measuring a little large for 20 weeks but these are my first so my body is probably fighting growing too quickly...?
