Stupid is as stupid does.

We told DH's family on Christmas night that we are having a boy and a girl. They were all thrilled, but above the happiness the following is what I remember most. Let me preface this with the fact that my BIL is a very intelligent man. He's an engineer with a few degrees, but is apparently only "book smart".

And Dandle, this of course made me think of you. LOL.

BIL: Wow, a boy and a girl. That's awesome.
Me: It's just what we were hoping for.
BIL: Will they be able to tell if they're fraternal or identical twins?
Me: Well, since they're not the same gender, they're obviously fraternal.
BIL: But they could still be identical twins, right?
Me: Ummm, well, not by definition. We know they're fraternal.
BIL: But what if they look alike?? Would they be identical twins then?
Me: ....walking away laughing...

I still crack up when I think of how serious he was about it. For a moment I thought he was joking, but he wasn't at all. LMAO.

16w 2d Growth Scan

Since I'm having twins I'm lucky enough to get a detailed u/s (growth scan) every four weeks. Today went great. The babies are each measuring about 6 ounces, which puts them a little head, and shows that they're growing at the same rate (awesome!!). We also got some more great news...we found out their genders!!!

Add us to team A is a GIRL and baby B is a BOY!!!!!!!

Busting Out

I'm now a 38DDD.
And I'm just past 14 weeks.
I've already passed the size I was when I was nursing EJ.
How big will my bust get by the time I deliver the twins??
Will I get even bigger after that when my milk comes in???
Will I even be able so see over my boobs???? LOL.

2nd Trimester

Yesterday was 13w4d and officially the start of my second trimester. I've let out a little sigh of relief of my breath I've been holding for the past three months. Still a long way to go, but so thrilled to have made it this far with my twins ♥!
