15 weeks

Here were are at 15 weeks now. Hard to believe, it really is going by fast! We had a 3d/4d ultrasound done last night, and it was nothing short of AMAZING! The babies are still small enough that they could get both of them in the screen. We got some really neat pictures and some super cool video! We were so super impatient to find out the genders, which is why we scheduled this ultrasound, but we didn't come out with a FOR SURE answer. Based on what was seen, we think there is a boy and a girl in there though! I have been analyzing the picture of the possible boy parts, and I tend to think it might just be a pee pee! LOL Mike isn't convinced yet. I think he is afraid to get excited and be disappointed. Lots of mommies to boys seem to think it looks like a pee pee ... what do you think?
Close up:

We will hopefully be going back in about 2 weeks for another quick peek to verify gender. I would already have it scheduled, but I was in the bathroom (I spend a lot of time in there these days it seems! My bladder is already crowded!) when the offer from the owner was made to come back in 2 weeks. Just need to call her and schedule it!

Here are some of the pictures from the 3d part of the ultrasound. ♥

And here is a super cute little 4d video of them. The one on the bottom watching the show with a smile on it's face is the one we think is a boy and the one who can't be still is the one we think is a girl! ♥

In other news, it turns out that I am indeed anemic, so hopefully that has been the cause of my tachycardia! Just need to take a little extra iron. :) I love it when things are simple - doesn't seem to happen very often! Things are going great. I feel SO BLESSED!

14 weeks

So, yesterday marked 14 weeks, the official beginning of the second trimester! YAY! I had an appointment with the OB and things were good. We got to see the babies on ultrasound and they have gotten so big! They were kicking each other, and it was oh so cute! ♥ We didn't get any new pictures to share, unfortunately. My OB was running quite behind, so I think she was kind of in a hurry. Oh well, most important is knowing they are well! I am dealing with some tachycardia (high pulse rate) which I got a work up for to try to figure out the cause. I had an EKG done yesterday and it was normal rythym, just showed that my heart was beating really fast. I noticed it a few days ago and had planned to talk to her about it anyway and then when they did my vitals my pulse was 125! Not good. Hopefully it is something super simple like anemia that I can take some extra iron for. One can hope anyway, right! ;)

So, while I don't have any new ultrasound pictures to send, I thought I would share my 14 week belly shot! Hard to believe how big I am already, but considering there is 2 in there, I guess it's not that shocking. LOL

In other news, we are strongly considering going this coming Friday (at 15 weeks on the nose!) for a 3d ultrasound for gender determination. We are just SO excited and super impatient to find out what these babies are. I hope, hope, hope for Mike's sake that there is at least 1 boy in there! I honestly don't care either way, I just want 2 healthy babies! :)

2 kids, 2 dogs, 2 cats, 2 bunnies and 2 on the way!

Life in the Curtis household has always been a little, shall we say, crazy? It's about to get a whole lot crazier with twins on the way! This is our new blog to keep everyone up to date on the Curtis craziness, which we love every minute of!

We found out on December 15th, at 4 weeks 4 days pregnant, that we were expecting twins! The ultrasound tech pointed out that there were 2 gestational sacs, which she had to explain to poor Mike that this meant there were 2 babies growing in there! We were very shocked by the news, and I'm not sure it has completely sunk in even now, but the further we get along in the pregnancy, the more we realize that we will actually be having 2 babies!! We are very excited, even if a little nervous. Here is our ultrasound picture from the day we found out:

Here are the other ultrasound images we have had so far ...

Our next OB appointment is tomorrow. I will be 14 weeks. Hard to believe it, but I made it to the second trimester! That is huge for me having had 4 miscarriages in the past. We are blessed, what else can I say? Looking forward to sharing some more pictures of our babies tomorrow!
