12w2d



i made it to 12 weeks!!

we had an u/s this morning and the babies look great. it was so nice to see an u/s where they now look like real babies instead of the blurry blobs we are used to. they were rolling and kicking and waving and everything. the tech was trying to get the NT measurements (for down's syndrome testing) and had a little trouble with one of them, so we blissfully watched them on the screen for about a half hour.

we got great pictures of their profiles and are feeling a big sigh of relief. the MFM nurse (who we just met today) could tell we were nervous and when we were leaving she said,"i want to see big smiles, you don't have to worry anymore, you have two healthy babies!" i don't think the worry will ever end, but i do feel much better now that we've made it so far.

we are letting the cat out of the bag and telling the world our great news. it feels a little scary, but great all at the same time :)

Yea! I can totally understand how it would be nicer to see "real babies" on an ultrasound; makes it seem more real, I'm sure.

BTW, I gave you an award on my blog a couple of days ago. Didn't know if you'd been by and seen it. . .

Congrats! What beautiful pictures. It IS nice to see them actually looking like little human beings instead of weird little blobs, isn't it? Not sure what your regular OB's machine is like - if it's like ours, it's really disappointing to go back and have to have the crappy blob pictures again. Still, great job so far!

They look amazing! Oh I am so happy everything went great. I don't think the worry ever ends, but for today you can live with the knowledge you have two healthy babies!
