We had out "confirmation" appointment last week, and got another ultrasound (YAY!!). The baby was MUCH bigger than the first time, of course...in fact, he/she looks HUGE to me. Maybe it's just me. But I am saying my prayers that I am not growing a 10 pounder! ;-)
The heartbeat was nice and strong, though it's too early to hear it still. We could definitely see the fast little flutter of it though! We got a few photos to take home, as well. We thought I was about 8 weeks, 6 days last Thursday, according to my first ultrasound, but that got changed with the newer ultrasound, so today I am 8 weeks 6 days. We were just 3 days off. :-) The new due date is March 7, 2011! But I think the most exciting thing right now as far as the pregnancy goes, is that I have started to feel the early flutters of movement! I have had gas, of course. What pregnant woman doesn't?? But once you are familiar with both, it's easy to tell the difference. And I have definitely felt baby flutters. Not often, but enough to say I can tell I got a little move and shaker on my hands!
The twins are doing wonderfully. I can't say enough how much FUN they are!! Connor has started talking a LOT more, and has gotten much better at walking in such a short time. I love seeing them walking all over the place with eachother. His newest words are hot (sounds like "ahht") and stinky (sounds like "dee-dee") LOL He will plug his nose and say it, or smell his toes or anything he can get his hands on really...everything is "dee-dee" to him lately. Merasia jibber jabbers sooo much, she has full lengch conversations...but nobody can quite make out all of what she says. We joke that she's going to be president one day, with all the talking she does. I think the biggest, most cutest thing they have started doing is blowing kisses, giving everyone kisses, and giving big hugs. My heart melts when Merasia smacks her lips and walks up to me. I pucker up and she gives me the sweetest kiss ever, and usually comes back for more right after. Connor gives big open mouthed kisses, and gives them a LOT. It's so sweet whenever I am sitting at Merasia's level, or leaning down, doing something, and Merasia walkes up behind me and cuddles me, laying her head down on my shoulder or my back. They are so affectionate, and I am soaking it all up while I can!
Lastly, here are some ultrasound photos I have available...I have to upload some newer photos of the twins, but I have yet to do that...next time, I swear! ;-)
