Sugar & Spice Times Two
Yesterday was our 20 week ultrasound and we found out we are having 2 girls!!!!
My feeling was that it was either a boy and a girl or two girls, but to hear two girls was still a big surprise! Hubby comes from a family of four boys, so he was quite surprised and is a little nervous for the road ahead. He works with all women besides his business partner, so he said “girls at work, girls at home”.
Most of all, the detailed ultrasound reassured us that the girls are doing great. Anatomy looked great and they are measuring normal for their gestational age and almost the same in size. Both were quite active during the scan and it was amazing to see their fingers, toes, noses, lips, etc.
I’m feeling well, some cramping with the expansion of my stomach and just really trying to take it easy. The leader of our multiples class keeps reminding us all that “a twin pregnancy is not the same thing as a singleton pregnancy” and that we all must listen to our bodies and not overdo it. It’s pouring down rain here in the Northwest, so it makes it a little easier to have a cozy day on the sofa.
After finding out we are having two girls yesterday, I headed to the mall and purchased these two small pink Little Giraffe blankies. They are so soft, Mama might one for herself!
Here are the little ones:
20 weeks (21 weeks tomorrow):
My belly is growing very rapidly now!
Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend!
