So what are you having??

OK, I have been dying to find out what the genders of the twins are…2 boys, 2 girls, 1 girl/1 boy??  There are so many options!  I have to admit that the thought of twin girls scares me a little, but I would be completely fine with it.  We set the 18 week ultrasound appointment when I was 12 weeks along.  So I had 6 long weeks to ponder what was in my belly.  Finally the much anticipated day arrived!!!  Tuesday, April 3rd.  The whole day at work I was super anxious.  Is it 2:30 yet?? I was also very anxious about the general well being of the twins.  I guess because there are 2 in there, I’m double paranoid.  I really wanted to see them again and see them moving and their little hearts beating.

So we have arrived at the appointment finally and I get to see my babies!!  I’m so happy to see them moving around.  The sonographer started with the head and checked everything out body part by body part, all the way to the toes 🙂  Twin A has 2 arms, 2 legs, normal brain, heart, and abdomen…yay!  Twin A also has something that tells us…boy!!  YES!!  So Twin A is a boy…Carter is going to have a little brother!  So moving on to Twin B, same deal, we start at the head and go all the way down.  Twin B has 2 arms, 2 legs, normal brain, heart, and abdomen….I am one relieved mamma!!  Both babies are looking good and I’m feeling good 🙂  Twin B also has a little something to tell us that he is a boy too!!! Don’t ask me what the secret to having boys is…I really have no clue…

So Chris and I are having twin boys, Carter will have 2 little brothers to beat up now.  I have to admit that Chris and I both felt a little sad that we would never have a baby girl.  But alas, it wasn’t meant to be…we were destined to have a bunch of Hemp boys!!  I can’t wait to meet the little guys!  4.5 months to go!  Now we have to come up with 4 boy names….
