October 27th.

Yesterday I found out the gender of my sweet babies...

THEY ARE BOYS!!!! We are so thrilled that we have little identical twin baby boys on the way. We cannot wait to meet them so they better hurry up and grow fast!

Trevor and I had been waiting to find out what these babies were ever since we got pregnant. October 27th felt like it couldn't come fast enough and then it finally came after a long wait!

Our appointment was at 3:15 p.m. so it seriously felt like i was waiting years as i was twiddling my thumbs up until the appointment. Good thing i was keeping myself busy with things so it made the time go by faster. At about 2:30 p.m., i got a call from the ultrasound facility and i about freaked out when i saw them calling me because i thought that they were going to cancel! They then told me that they were running behind so that my appointment time would be pushed back a bit. Good thing they didn't want to reschedule because they would have had one angry pregnant woman for sure. haha.

We finally got to the facility and we sat there for about an hour before we got called back. I could not stop fidgeting or moving around because i was so excited to know what they were already! We were finally got called back and we jumped out of our seats. We raced back to the back and they quickly started the ultrasound. The tech started doing her thing and examined a few things before going onto the gender. Then she pointed to the boy part on baby A (who might i add, was spreading his legs and throwing it in our view for visibility. It was hilarious) and it was definitely a baby boy! My heart sank and Trevor and I were both overwhelmed with happiness! We were having boys!! Since we confirmed the first baby was a boy, we assumed the other one was a boy too since they are identical, but we still wanted to check in case. The tech did some more examinations on the first baby and then finally went on to the next one. Then there it was! The baby boy part again! Both of our boys liked showing off their parts to us and were not shy at all! It was seriously the funniest thing ever. Of course Trevor was SUPER proud of them. haha.

You can tell which baby is which by a letter A or B on the left of the picture.

Baby B was being stubborn and wouldn't let us see his face! Still so adorable though.
Loving each other!
Still loving each other!
Look at that cute butt!
Baby A showing us how cute he is! Love!

The boys are doing great and are healthy! The doctor talked with us this morning about the ultrasound and gave us a little feedback about what we should be expecting from now on. I have to go in every two weeks now for an ultrasound just to check their size and how they are growing. They are both already 8 ounces, but he said that they are little bit lower than normal when it comes to their weight at this stage of the pregnancy. He said that it was nothing to worry about, but that we want to keep an eye on them to make sure they are growing on track. They then have to get an echocardiogram done in about 4 weeks to check their hearts since they are monochorionic twins. All this testing is standard for these types of twins so i am ok with it. All i care about is that my babies are healthy!

We could not be happier about our babies being cute boys! The pregnancy just feels so much more real now knowing what our sweet babies are. We are so excited to be a mommy and a daddy and cannot wait for these babies to be out already! We already love them so much and love every time we get to see them up on the screen. It really is the best thing ever. Now it's time to SHOP!

These are the first thing on my list for the boys :)

Breast Cancer.

This is for breast cancer month and for all those who have had to go through this. I love this song and i could not stop bawling. I had to go through cancer with my dad, but have never experienced loosing a really closed loved one to cancer. This is for my sweet friend Jules and what she had to go through with her sweet mommy. Read her stories here.

Being a Mommy.

I seriously cannot wait to be a mommy. I can't believe that i am 17 weeks already! Every day i am closer to getting these sweet little babies in my arms... It isn't going by fast enough though! I know that they need this time to grow and develop, but i can't help but want them in my arms so bad.

The whole pregnancy has started to feel more real now. I finally just started showing like a week ago so now i feel like this is all really happening. Yeah i have been going through all the sickness and what not that comes along with being pregnant, but i still didn't feel like it was the real deal yet until about a week ago. I have been so paranoid lately because i havent seen my belly and now that it is finally growing i feel so relieved!

I look forward to hearing my babies heartbeats at every doctor's appointment. It seriously is the best thing ever. I love sitting there listening to my little turnip sized babies that are all mine. I love the little movements my babies make as i sit in different positions. It is the weirdest thing ever! I keep getting these weird bulges on the sides of my belly and i think it is the coolest thing. Every food that i used to love, i hate now and every food that i used to stay away from i want so bad! This pregnancy thing is crazy, but i wouldn't trade it for anything.

I am already feeling pain which has been worrying me a lot lately. After feeling this pain for a couple of days, the doctor checked me out and told me that everything looks good. Twins can go into labor a lot faster then one baby so i was told by my doctor to take it really easy... It has been hard, but it is all worth it.

I cant believe that i am actually going through what i have always dreamed about and that i am 4 months closer to being a mommy to my little babies. Being a mommy is something that i have always wanted to do ever since i was a little girl.

Trevor is going to be the BEST daddy ever. I watch the way he is with other little kids and babies and it is the cutest thing ever. He talks about the babies all the time and he gets more and more excited every day. He is such a hard worker for our little family. We are 2 months closer to finding out where his dental career will begin. He has been working so hard in school and has been killing his dental interviews. We cant wait until December 1st to really know where we are going to be!

October 27th cannot come fast enough... We find out if these little munchkins are girls or boys and i seriously want to know so bad already so that i can start shopping and planning everything!

I love that our little family is starting and that our dreams are coming true. I couldn't picture our lives any other way. We truly are blessed.
