IDENTICAL TWINS!

Yesterday afternoon was amazing! Words can not even begin to express the love I have for these babies...and they are only inches long! Yesterday we had another ultrasound. (10.2 weeks) This was to determine if the babies are identical or fraternal. Both my mother and mother-in-law came along for this visit! It was so fun having them there. The Dr. didn't do this ultrasound so the tech was giving us all the information. You can't see it in this first picture but it's there...there is a LITTLE membrane separating the 2 babies. We immediately thought fraternal! We went back to the waiting room and text/called everyone. Then Mark and I were called back to meet with the Dr. His words were "Well, we don't have to talk about anything scary today, you are having identical twins but the are SAFE in a sac with a little separation so they can't get tangled together." We got the best of both worlds. GOD is so good, yesterday reminded me (because I am aware) that God is in COMPLETE control over this. Below is the picture with Baby A and Baby B in it...

This is Baby B, he/she was facing us yesterday...
This is a picture of Baby A, perfect side profile.
The babies were EXACTLY the same size again...down the the millimeter! They measured 6.5 cm. One heart rate was 178 and the other was 182. Mark and I were also able to hear the heartbeat yesterday. When I say heartbeat it's because they can't separate them right now. Reason being, they are so close together and almost beating the same.

  8. I too found you through Multiples and More. I love your ultrasound pictures :) My baby B looked just like your baby B in their first pictures (face toward the camera)! We teasingly called her our little alien :D Here's our girl's first picture: http://bumblebeegrace.blogspot.com/2009/03/twins.html
    Our miracle girls, Aeralind and Bronwyn, are here and are so much fun, but have taught us so many lessons about how selfish we are. They appear to be identical, but we're unwilling to pay for a genetic test.
    I'm so excited for you! Let me know if I can help you out during this incredible journey!
    Blessings!
