Pink & Blue!

Yes, it is a boy and a girl! :)

We had the anatomy scan today (Nov 25 @ 19w6d)... and so far everything looks good! I am so very thankful for how far we have reached and this experience that we have been blessed with. Still a long road ahead, but it is reassuring to see them hale and hearty, kicking and punching their Mommy!

The u/s tech we had was not very verbose, so it was hard to follow most of the stuff she was doing. We were in there for around 1.5 hours... the last 15 minutes were with the MFM, who checked the hearts and some other organs. I would say those 15 minutes were the toughest... since I have always heard that you see an MFM if there is a problem; though I guess for an anatomy scan it is a norm (at our hospital) for the MFM to come in and take a peak at the babies!

The heart rates were at 159 and 163 bpm, and they weighed 11 and 13 ounces (boy and girl respectively). At this stage, they do not measure the length since the babies are curled up. My cervix is still holding up at 3.3, which is a relief. I will be back for my next cervical check in approximately 2 weeks (Dec 11).

I feel like I am getting bigger day by day and it is getting tougher to move around, roll around...! The movement in the belly area is pretty distinct. We might have felt it from the outside on occasions, but it is still not super obvious.

My BFF is coming over for Thanksgiving and we are hoping to do some baby shopping on Friday-Saturday! :)

Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Congratulations BB!! One of each will allow you to experience both worlds of motherhood. What a Thanksgiving blessing. You deserve it!

    Wishing a Happy Thanksgiving celebration to your crew and your BFF! Eat lots and laze lots...after all, you are eating for 3 this year and that takes the Turkey Challenge to a whole new level.

    Enjoy your little guy and little girl this wonderful Thanksgiving....

  2. perfect is that....a Boy and a Girl. So very happy for you all. :)

  3. How exciting to finally know! And one of each is awesome. Congrats!

  4. Yay for a boy and girl! Happy shopping!

    It's common practice for a multiple birth at my OB's to see a MFM- in fact, my appt. with him is Dec 11th. Just take comfort in that you had a specialist tell you everything was ok, not just a u/s tech!

  5. Ohhh, how perfect, a little boy and girl! Congratulations!!!

  6. Congratulations!! I'm not even 2 months in, but so far I am really enjoying having boy-girl twins.

    (But, be prepared -- you will end up putting her in blue and him in pink when the laundry situation gets dire.)

  7. Well yay! Congrats! The best of both worlds!

    Geez, to think I might have to wait 10 more weeks to find out the genders!

  8. Congrats! You get to shop for all colors!!

  9. Oooooooooooooh how fun and exciting!!!! CONGRATS!!!!!!
