Snakes and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails...
I know, it's been FOREVER since I've blogged. Truth is, I've just been so tired by the time I get home from dealing with my 26 "friends" at school that I just take a nap (for hours on end) on the couch.
My mom came up for a much needed girl visit and we had a great time shopping and just lounging around for a few days. We also went to see my ultrasound specialist to have the babies tested for downs syndrome and some other chromosomal disorders. It was extremely scientific and involved a TON of measurements and locating the bridges of the noses, bones, toes, etc. It was awesome to spend almost an hour watching them wiggle and move in every direction though and to share that with my mom. :o)
We were happy to find out that the babes are progressing great and are healthy and happy (the top bunk is almost a little too happy as he was doing flips and kicks the entire untrasound!). The doctor was able to determine the sexes of the babies and placed them in an envelope for me until Jared came home from being out of town. Although mom and I definitely wanted to peel back that envelope and peek, we didn't and the surprise was worth it. Jared and I found out that we are going to have two boys! They are fraternal with two completely separate placentas and amniotic sacs. They have healthy strong heartbeats and are about the same size. I'm sure they will be the best of friends if they aren't already!!
