a boy and a girl! We went to Dr. Gonzales yesterday for our level 2 ultrasound. The ultrasound tech was able to tell us right away that baby a is a girl and baby b is a boy. We even got the spread eagle position from the boy to prove it but I didn't want to put the picture on here and embarrass him before he is even born! We are very excited that there is one of each. The tech and doctor looked for and took measurements of everything...legs, arms, hands, fingers, feet, toes, heart chambers, kidneys, head, etc. Everything looks great on both! The boy is the top picture and the girl is the bottom picture. Now we have to come up with names for each.
I went to the last doctor in my group, Dr. Rogers, yesterday for my 4 week appointment. He did a scan so he could find both of the babies but I didn't get any pictures. Both of the babies are looking good still. One of them was flailing its arms and legs all over the place. It has been very active every time I have had a scan or ultrasound. The other one is much more calm. I am curious to see if they are like that once they are out...one constantly moving and the other much calmer. I go back to my OBGYN in four weeks. I got a phone call earlier in the week from the high risk doctor's office. They said my blood test came back so they knew the chance of down's sydrome. They said the babies are fine. There is a 1:370 chance of down's sydrome which they do not seem concerned about at all. Next Friday is my big appointment at the high risk doctor. I go for my level 2 ultrasound and should find out what the babies are as long as they cooperate.
My name is Karen and I have been married to my husband Stu for a little over 9 years. I was pregnant with twins and lost our baby girl at 20 1/2 weeks after I had premature rupture of membranes. I stayed pregnant with the other baby and our first child, Brandon Tyler, was born on July 5, 2008 at 26 weeks and 1 day. Our second child, Wesley Matthew, was born full term on June 29, 2011. This blog is documenting our children.
