16 Week Anatomy Scan and the Big News!

So, as many of you know, today was our 16 week anatomy scan. I'm so glad it was early so I didn't have to wait all day! Straight away the ultrasound tech went searching for the babies' sexes! But I'm not gonna tell that part yet...(bwahahaha!).

Anyways, she went about measuring bits on the babies and they all weighed in at 6 ounces a piece...that is a pound and a half of babies! They were all pretty cooperative, but getting a look at baby A and baby B was difficult because they are at the very bottom and crammed up next to each other. Babies C and D are up top and lounging like little rock stars on chaise lounges...LOL! Baby C was working its jaw and looked like it was talking. We joked that it was telling A & B to quit fighting.

So onto the fun stuff. During her initial look, the U/S tech said baby A is a girl, baby B is a girl, baby C is definitely a boy, and baby D wasn't cooperating. So she did some measurements and went back around. This time, baby A was a boy, baby B is definitely a girl, baby C is still a boy, and baby D is definitely a boy. I have to admit, the thought of three boys scared the daylights out of me. She measured some more and went back to baby A because she was bugged by it. Baby A's butt was firmly planted down and we got a lot of foot shots, but she couldn't get a good enough view. Finally, she decided that baby A is probably a girl and went and got the Dr.

He took a look around and decided that baby A is a girl. So, we are 99% sure that we have 2 boys and 2 girls on the way! We are thrilled! It is especially cool because we both come from families of 5 kids, 2 girls and 3 boys, and that is what we will have as well!

So, I start every other week visits with the specialist now and am having every other week visits with the OB, so I will be seeing someone every week.

Now the planning and plotting begins! It feels so much more real now that we know what we are having and I am feeling more and more movement. This is a crazy ride, but I'm so glad we got chosen to ride it! :P
