PG - 18 Weeks 1 Day - Ultrasound Update

We had a great ultrasound today! Both babies are measuring exactly the same estimated weight of 9 oz right now, so there doesn't seem to be any issue of one of the babies growing more than the other. They both had all their parts and everything measured nicely. Hearts were beating nicely - one at 150 and the other at 141. Oh and there was an additional part to both of them. We have two boys. I'll admit we were hoping for one of each, but this is great too. We were worried if Phoebe would be disappointed as she did want a sister, but when we told her this afternoon, she was very happy as she said brothers like to wrestle around like she does. As I also told Leo, Phoebe gets to retain her title of the sole Princess of the house.

I'm still fighting off this cold, so I didn't go back to work this afternoon and I did take a nap this afternoon. I still don't feel much better. I hope I feel better tomorrow. The good news is that I haven't had any fever of any kind, but my ears are all crackly and my sinus are all clogged. I don't think I've been able to breathe through my nose in two days now. So I'll go back to drinking lots of fluids and getting some rest.

Awe-two boys! How exciting, no matter what as long as they are doing well. At least you can buy lots of new baby clothes! Hope you feel better soon!

Congratulations mama!!
So happy you're having at least one boy :o)
It's great that Phoebe is very happy to have two younger brothers. I imagine she'll be a lot of help--that should be just fantastic.

Wishing you and the family the very best.

Welcome to the boy club! I had originally wished for one of each too and now I would never change having two boys! I think there is a greater likelihood they'll be and remain super close as same gender twins too.

Wow! Congrats. I'm so happy for you. I love reading your updates. I kept checking all day to see if you would post the genders. Thanks for posting. I've been in suspense all day! Great news!

Congrats on your two boys! Wonderful! I think same sex twins are going to be a little easier. Wear same clothes, always have a playmate (no matter the age!), etc. I'm thrilled for you!

Hope you feel better soon.

Yipppeeee for more boys! We can trade "tips" on raising perfect, well-groomed little guys that love to clean-up their own messes and never grow too old or embarassed to give thier mommy hugs and kisses in public. (Wishful thinking, I know!)

Hope you're feeling better very soon. Snot is NO fun! *hugs*
