12 Weeks and Ultrasound Pics!!

So week twelve has been a pretty eventful week around here. The biggest and most exciting thing was that we had our NT scan on Monday. I don't think that I can put into words how wonderful it was to see both babies still there with beating hearts and flailing limbs. I REALLY have to babies in's amazing! It might seem kind of silly, but I've been trying not to get my hopes up about having twins, but after seeing both babies looking like babies, I am feeling pretty good. It is still possible for something bad to happen to one or both babies, but every week that we make it brings us closer to bringing home two little beings in August.

Baby A was measuring at 12 weeks 5 days (the ultrasound was at 12 weeks 4 days) and had a heartbeat of 148. This was my squirmy little one who wasn't as fond of posing for a picture. Baby A flipped completely over a couple of times during the ultrasound which was so cool to watch.

Baby B was measuring at 12 weeks  6 days and had a heartbeat of 154. This is my little ham of a baby, posing perfectly for profile shots. Baby B still wiggled around and kicked it's legs and sucked it's thumb...but was overall way more mellow than his or her sibling.

The ultrasound tech didn't have any guesses about babies' genders, but for the first time in this pregnancy I have a gut feeling. It will most assuredly be wrong, but I just have this feeling that Baby A is a boy and Baby B is a girl. We will see in either 1 or 2 months!

In other week 12 news we went to Nathan's yearly work party and went and saw Warm Bodies at the movie theater. We have also decided to really try and look at baby names so that we can at least have a starting list to narrow down! We are each going to write a long list of names that we like, then compare lists and veto names that we don't like. Then we will combine the lists and continue to narrow it down until we have two boy names and two girl names.'s going to be a long process!
