Ginormous :)

Well maybe I am being a bit dramatic, I'm not quite ginormous, but I am growing!! I'm only 19 weeks, so I can't even imagine what I will look like further along. It is hard for me to picture my belly any bigger, but I know I still have a lot of growing to do.
So here are updated belly bump pictures... These are at 19 weeks and 3 days... so almost 5 months!!

The verdict is in...

So we are having 2 boys... holy moly :)

Both babies look extremely healthy and are a little bigger than expected so I couldn't be happier!!

Both are about 7 inches and Twin B is 8oz and Twin A is 7oz.

Twin A was referred to as "lean and mean." He would not cooperate with the pictures, basically he wouldn't sit still for a second. And once she was trying to get a picture of both of them Mr.LeanandMean was kicking and punching his brother, and then they were both kicking at each other, and then Mr.LandM turned himself around and planted his butt right in his brother's face!!

So is this what we have in store for us :)

Honestly I can't wait... as much as I wanted a girl I think 2 boys will be an absolute blast!! Now when they break out in a fist fight in the middle of the grocery store later in life remind me that I said that :)

Some more good news from the doc yesterday... he called me an ideal incubator :) He said with my age, height, weight, and because the twins are in separate sacks I am and the bottom of the list in the high risk pregnancies. Because it is twins it is automatically considered high risk but he said I'm not even a blip on his radar... so that made me feel good :)

Oh and more interesting news he said there is no way of knowing if they are identical or fraternal at this point, once they are born we can have them DNA tested if we choose, but turns out Check Spellingidentical twins can be in separate sacks.

AND here are the pictures...

Here is Twin A, he is the bigger and better behaved one :)
Both of the pictures are his feet she just split the screen.
Here is Mr.Lean and Mean himself, and his cute little rascally feet :)

Here they both are together. It is a little hard to make out but both of their heads are facing down and they were kicking at each other!!

And in this lovely shot Mr.Lean and Mean (right) turned himself around and but his butt right in his brother's face!! I can just picture him saying "kiss my butt"

Latest and Greatest

I haven't reported in what seems like ages... so let me catch up on all plus post a few pics...

We have registries!! (Babies R Us, Target, and Walmart) What an overwhelming experience! There is an insane amount of stuff out there, and when you have never done this before it's hard to know what is a necessity and what's just fun to have :) We have a lot we still need to add we are just waiting to find out the other sex....

Speaking of finding out; we are scheduled for our ultra sound on March 17th (St. Patty's Day)... and we have a regular doc appt the day before.

Also I have been feeling really good!!! I do get tired easily but other than that I don't even feel like I am pregnant, well aside from the growing belly. I am not having any real cravings, I'm not getting sick.... I'm not experiencing any of the "dreaded" things I've heard about. Granted I know I am still very early and all that could come but I am going to enjoy this part while it last.

As for the growing belly I had to go maternity clothes shopping this weekend... the belly band and safety pin weren't really cutting it anymore :) I am actually super excited about my jeans, they look cute and they are SO comfortable!!
So here are some pics of a few of my purchases with my 16 week belly pics to go with them :)
