We are having ...

... TWO BOYS!!

Well both babies have all their parts and look very healthy. I was awake all morning worrying about them having some major problems, like missing the important left ventricle of the heart, so this was a huge relief to me! Both babies are measuring about a week ahead, which was also a huge relief to us given our extremely IUGR baby experience, so all is good there. The tech asked if we wanted a sneak peek before she began her measurements and I of course said yes give us a quick peek! She moved the wand to Baby A (the one K predicted to be a girl) and before she could say a word J shouted out “I see a penis!” It was so cute! The tech said that J was absolutely right … Baby A is a boy! K and I were laughing at J and I was giddy with excitement! Next the tech moved the wand to see Baby B’s goods, which he was displaying quite proudly, and again we saw the boy bits! Yep, we are expecting two healthy baby boys! (I'll post the u/s pics of the babies tonight when I get home from P-T conferences.)

We are over the moon and can’t wait to start buying some boy stuff! J kept telling K how thankful we are for what she’s doing for us and it’s so true! We can never thank her enough for giving us such an amazing gift x2! K really is an amazing woman who is giving so much of herself to make our dreams come true! K is an inspiration and makes me want to be a better person!

Congratulations!!
Although I'm glad I didn't bet my house on my prediction earlier this morning :) How cool to have three sons! You're way outnumbered Niki, but you have lots of protectors!

My first time commenting on your blog but I've been following for a while. Just wanted to say congrats!!! You will have so much fun when they are here. I am also the mom of twin boys conceived through IVF. So happy for you!

How exciting! I have been reading your blog for a while and I swear I was more excited for this ultrasound than my own!

What K is doing is amazing and she makes me want to do the same thing for someone. Just wish I wasn't getting too long in the tooth (33) to be a surrogate.

You are blessed times two and I can't wait to read all about those beautiful boys after they are born.

On a side note I was a biologist before being a SAHM and have a masters in Zoology from NC State. I like your questions and answers post. I can totally relate.

Take care!
