I'll Take the Combo Please

It is offically a combo, a little boy and girl!! I haven't cried at any ultrasounds yet, although in my previous life I thought at the sight of a heartbeat I'd be a hot crying mess. It's been so surreal it hasn't happened, but seeing two healthy babies in my tummy that will be my son and daughter made me a little misty eyed.

I already feel like a bad mom at the sight of this:

This is my baby girl! I watched her brother repeatedly kick her in the head. She is in a position where she is always trying to look right at us at ultrasounds. She still looks like skeletor face and chunky body, but I just know she is going to be adorable. Anyway, she looks like she is reaching out to me to help her!! I thought she looked very uncomfortable but the doctor said she will be fine. But I feel bad not helping her, I just eat and sleep. Bad mommy!
The good news is that the specialist did not think that my placenta will be an issue. The bad news is that at only 18 weeks, my twice weekly cervical checks have commenced. This occurs two and a half months later in a singleton pregnancy. I guess it's balanced though, twice the fun, but twice the violations!!
I haven't bought much because luckily I have been offered many hand-me-downs from moms of girls. I couldn't resist a little pink dress with white polka dots though. I will also be carefully watching the blog of a wonderful online friend because her daughter dresses SO cute so I need to copy her (I won't name any names, but I "met" her on Resolve and she has a beautiful daughter that starts with the letter "R").
Aaah, feeling much better. Didn't I tell you an ultrasound would help?


  1. AAAHHHHHHH!!! I am SO excited for you guys! If I could "order" babies, I'd definitely take a "set." LOL ;-) Congrats!

  2. I love that you are having a "combo"! I used to dream about that too! Seriously, I would dream of them in a shopping cart or something. I really thought I would get pg with b/g twins:)...I am not complaining though...have my sweet "R"...and I am SOOOO excited for you and DH! You are sweet about the clothes...might have to pass some "girly" clothes your way since your angels are due shorty after R's Bday. Hugs,
