The ultrasound revealed two baby boys!!! I had a feeling that one of them was a boy

I am so incredibly happy that everything is progressing well and that the babies growth seems right on track. The babies measured 20 weeks and 1 day and exactly 20 weeks and I was 20 weeks and 1 at the time of the scan.

I find it so facinating to watch these little miracles growing in my belly moving around constantly and kicking and waving their little arms. So much activity on the inside - hidden completely for all that looks on from the outside.

I had a wonderful couple of days with L&J. They flew in Wednesday morning and drove out to the coast for the appointment. We met up for a quick cup of coffee/hot chocolate and then headed over to the clinic for the ultrasound. Dr H did a great job explaining everything as he went along and it seems that he was very happy with the babies presentation.

The heart rates sounded great on both babies, for baby A is was in the 160's but he did not say the rate for baby B. Actually he had a bit of a challenge getting baby B's rate as he kept moving around. At 15 minutes or so into the exam, I began getting really dizzy from laying down on my back and Dr. H had to stop the exam so I could sit up for a bit and get a drink of water.

Overall I think baby A got the most attention during the ultrasound and Baby B did not get as much detailed look as A .. but maybe he looked at it more quickly and just explained the anatomy more while looking at A. Both babies had the cord between their legs but the verdict is 95% sure that it is two little boys. Woohoo L&J are so excited!

...double trouble that's for sure :-)

After the appointment L&J came to dinner at the house and got to meet the kids. We had a really nice time. It was great just being able to relax at home with them and invite them into our home. We also took a drive to the ocean even through the weather was really crummy. I hope that delivery time will bring lots of sunny days to explore the coast a bit up here.

L&J brought goodies for all of us...the kids were so excited and felt very special getting a gift. I also felt very spoiled with a lovely robe and a very cool "even miracles takes time" sign from L&J and also a neat purse with lots of body products from L's mom ... so sweet of her to think of me.

Thursday morning I met up with L&J at the Pig'n'Pancake for breakfast before I was headed of to work and them going back to Portland to fly out. It was great just have a bit of "grown-up only" time to chat.

I feel so fortunate to have connected with a second set of wonderful intended parents - they are truly enriching my life and I just feel so very happy being able to fulfill their dream of completing their family.
