Graduation Day!

We did it! We finally made it to Graduation Day! We never thought this day would ever come but alas it has - and we got sent off with an "everything looks perfect!" record. We also got, as promised, TONS of ultrasound pictures, dating back to the first sighting of our little beans. We'll post a few pictures at the end of the blog.

Baby A was again the highlight of the visit. He/She was dancing around, doing flips, and even waved at us! Baby B was doing his/her thing - and well, snoozing. Baby A had a heartbeat of 160 and Baby B had a sleeping heart rate of 156 ;) Since the range is between 120 and 160, we think we are in good shape. The technician said that the babies were growing perfectly. They are both about 2 inches long! J thinks she feels them bouncing around in there (although we know it is probably just gas) but with the way Baby A was moving about - now it makes you wonder if the fluttering J feels is really them!

Today we are 11 weeks and 4 days pregnant. J's uterus is measuring a little over 13 weeks and our Dr said everything looked and felt great. We can't wait for Thursday when we FINALLY hit the 12 week mark. So, we've read conflicting dates as to when the first trimester is over. Does anyone out there know for sure? Is it the beginning of the 12th week or the end of the 12th week? Either way - we are SOOOO CLOSE! We are having trouble believing we are pregnant let alone just days away from our second trimester!

We have our 1st appointment with our new OB/GYN on Wednesday where they will conduct the NT Scan on our babies. We are excited to be able to see them twice in one week!

Enjoy some pics!

Wow, that's so exciting! They both look wonderful and congrats on graduating! The first trimester can be 12 completed weeks, up to 14 completed weeks- opinions vary. Where you are, with everything looking so perfect, is a great place to be though.
