Welcome to the 2nd trimester!
So here they are. My children. They are perfect and healthy 🙂 Josh was finally with me for the u/s this morning and the look on his face was priceless! The babies were kicking and moving around so much, it was incredible to see them so animated! And their little profiles no longer look like tadpoles or gummy bears or blobs. They look like real live babies now!
Today marks day one of my second trimester 🙂 Ahhh, I am so happy to be at this point!
The sonographer attempted to check genders. She said that she’s about 70% sure it’s a boy and a girl. We will find out for sure November 11th! But my bet is she’s right, I have kind of always known 🙂
I also found out something interesting today. My mom told me that my great grandma was a twin, but the sibling died very early. So I guess twins DO run in the family! Now I can actually tell people that instead of saying no and them asking personal questions about “getting help”. Which yes, I was asked. And I just said “nope”. I don’t want to get into my fertility issues with some stranger at my store….
My dr says I can start maternity leave as early as 26 weeks if I want, but he may even pull me out of work sooner. He says that because I’m on my feet all day it may not be the best thing to work a lot…
