Two Healthy Babies.... A Boy & A Girl!!!

Ultrasound 16 weeks, 1 day: December 12, 2007

This has been the most exciting day so far. It was amazing to see the babies today on ultrasound (16 weeks, 1 day) and how much they have grown since 9 weeks, 1 day. They look like little people now. A friend from church did my ultrasound so that was extra special. She recorded it on video for us and gave us a bunch of pictures. While I was emptying my bladder Nick asked her if we could tell sex at 16 weeks yet. She said we should be able to and what do you know he first thing we saw on the screen was a penis. lol There was no doubt, he was making his boyhood known with a nice butt shot. I wish we had a picture of that...it was pretty funny. He was kicking and twisting and very active. She measured all the organs and arms and legs and checked the spine brain and heart of both and everything looked great. The girl she said was very photogenic. She was laying on her side moving her hands and sucking her thumb. We got to see them move a lot since she was measuring everything. Lots of piggies moving about. You could count their fingers and toes. The girl weighs 5 oz and the boy weighs 6 oz. Their heartbeats were normal, Girl was 146 and boy was 152. The boy is on my right side head down and the girl is on my left side head up. During the ultrasound the boy was facing my back so we were getting back views and butt views. He eventually at the end turned and that's the side picture that we got. She said at this point they have everything they need, it will just all get bigger and mature from here. She said the girl even has made her reproductive eggs that she'll use throughout her life. Amazing. They have fingerprints too. The details of God's creation are just amazing. I was in awe looking at them today and got a lil teary at how cute they are. What a blessing. I really just can't wipe the smile off my face today.
