Drumroll, Please

After almost 3 years of waiting, we will be welcoming ...

A Boy
and
A Girl

Our anatomy scan went fine. Measurements were right on cue and everything was in its place. The only little flag was some mild enlargement in the renal pelvises in our little boy. (This is where the urine collects before entering the urethra to travel to the bladder.) The enlargement wasn't technically "abnormal," but was larger than typically seen. Apparently this is more common in boys than girls and may be no big deal. They will track it and monitor, but there really is nothing to be done. If there is truly any problems, they would be addressed after birth.

My cervix measured fine (3.7) and no funneling. There was a subchorionic bleed, but the perinatalogist felt it was "small potatoes," although the nurse/tech said it was pretty big. I'm not spotting since the trip out west, so I'm going to not worry. (yeah, right. okay, not much)

We are very happy and just want all to continue to go well.

Oh, I asked The Snake what he thought the babies were ... he enthusiastically suggested 2 Boys! I told him Nope. His reply, Oh Man! Then I told him he would still get a brother, but also a sister. He seemed okay with that.

Congratulations on hitting the *jackpot*! Two boys and a girl - what a perfect little family! So happy for you and glad you can breathe a (kind of) sigh of relief that everything is looking good.

Hurray! Such great news. I'm glad the Snake was ok with it. :)

Leah said...

Congratulations!! How exciting that it's one of each -- but even better that they are both healthy. Tell that little boy to stop holding his pee, it's too early for shenanigans like that.

Congrats! I'm so glad all looks well and I wouldn't worry about the one little thing. These babies are smart and it will likely work itself out. How exciting! :)

So happy about the news!

I hope the Snake is happy with his prize and his consolation prize.

Caro said...

Wow! Congratulations.

Helen said...

Congratulations! I can highly recommend boy/girl twins :)

(And I also had a subchorionic bleed. It sorted itself out, and yours will very likely take care of itself, too).
