I had another ultrasound yesterday. In fact, I am one of the lucky ones who gets to see their babies every 2 weeks. I am so amazed because Apple and Banana actually look like little humans now!! It’s truly amazing.
As of today, I am 15W3D pregnant with two babies. WHAT?
During the ultrasound, I asked when we’d be able to find out the sexes. The tech said it was usually during the anatomy scan, but if she could see, she’s tell us. Banana, as usual, was being a pain in the butt and wouldn’t co-operate for a picture. In fact, my little Banana was facing my back, but in head down position, dancing away. We later realized that B was mooning us. Very much my husband’s child, my friends. Apple was very active as well but in breech position. At this point, it means very, very little.
Anyway! While looking to see if she could tell us what sex the babies are, this exchange happened….
TECH: Looks like Baby A – are you ready? Are you sure you want to know?
TECH: Looks like Baby A is a girl.
BEANIE: (oh Lord, I was a terrible little girl. It’s ok. It’s ok.)
TECH: Looks like it might be both. It’s hard to see between the legs.
BEANIE: (WHAT? BOTH? How can the baby have both parts???)
CODY: (I don’t know how you pick! How did this happen? How does this even happen? What do we do?!?)
Before we can voice our obvious concerns about Baby A have both male and female parts, the Tech continues…
TECH: Looks like both babies are girls.
BEANIE: (huge sigh of relief, with a couple of tears shed. I then realized I won the unofficial bet with my husband – I was right since the day we found out we were blessed with two, always calling them girls).
As for Cody – I asked him if we was a little disappointed since he thought we were having one of each. He said no, and I really truly believe him. He’s scared of cleaning a vagina, but other than that – he’s so happy. He is going to have two little girls who are going to adore him more than anyone. I also told him that he is going to be a good Dad – a man with amazing qualities that they’re going to try and find in their own partners one day.
So there we have it, folks. It will be confirmed in a couple of weeks since, again, Banana is my husband’s daughter and has a healthy stubborn streak already. But as it stands, we’ll be bringing home two little princesses in July!!
PS – The trans-vag ultrasound is not a thing of my past, as I had wished and hoped.
PPS – Dehydration is just something that happens, apparently. I have to continue to drink minimum 2L of fluid a day, but try to spread it out as much as possible. If it continues, we’ll revisit the issue. Blood work shows I am a fully functioning human being who shouldn’t be feeling awful.
PPPS – Next test is to check for Spina Bifida – ummmmm scary!! Rare, but scary.
