TWO GIRLS!!!

I am over the freaking moon. I really didn't know what I was expecting, but I'm SO excited that we are having 2 girls!!! So so excited.

We pretty much had the BEST ultrasound tech also. She was kind and explained everything. She saw Baby A as a girl 100% when Aaron went to the bathroom, heh heh (and showed me - I saw the 3 lines). She couldn't pin down Baby B - but she gave an 80% chance of girl on her too. The doc came and she 100% saw that Baby B was a girl, and couldn't see it on A! So - for me, that is confirmation.

The heart, kidney's, brain, bladders and stomachs on both baby's were perfect. One of the babies (I can't remember which) had a marker for trisomy 18. It had something to do with the top of the spine - but the doc said she wasn't very concerned, and the heart and head shape of that baby was just fine. I guess that 1 in 500 'normal' babies also will have that... and I'm not going to have an amnio anyway. I did ask Dr Google, and he said "studies have shown that a single marker found on ultrasound is usually not a good indicator of a chromosomal condition (ref 3,4). In other words, if only one marker is found during a level 2 ultrasound, the odds are very high that the baby is healthy."

We go back in a month, and the doc did say they would recheck that, and she expected that it would be resolved anyway.

HURRAH FOR BABY GIRLS!!!!
