Is gender that important? Perhaps we shouldn't tell you . . .

JUST KIDDING! So we just got back from all the Doctor appointments today- by we I mean myself and the two little princesses I'm carrying.

We had our big ultrasound today and in the process learned several things.

1. They're back to thinking only one placenta, not two (so they may be identical twins like we originally thought).

2. Baby A was a bit shy not showing us too much but finally in the end they said she's a girl.

3. Baby B was not shy at all- showing us all her girlie parts.

4. They don't provide spare pants if you pee yourself on the table. (I didn't, no worries, but it would've been nice to have the option)

I'm sure I'll post more later but I wanted to get this up before we go camping. I know a lot of you were dying to find out what gender they are, so I didn't want to torture you any longer.

The one major change because they're twins and also with one placenta is that we have to go in more often. I go back in 4 weeks but after that I will have to go in every 2 weeks. Then starting at 32 weeks, I'll have to go in twice a week for
Non-stress tests. I have 3 kids at home, so I was thinking I could just phone in and they could tell how stressed I was . . . but I found out that it's the babies they're testing, not me . . . so that's good! :)

Congrats on twin girls! My monozygotic twin girls are now nearly 6. One thing I can tell you is that early on they said two placentas, but as they grew the placentas fused and you couldn't tell that on the ultrasound. So here's to hoping they've just met in the middle. :-)
