16 weeks…one of each

I can’t believe I am already 16 weeks.  I think I started my last blog post with the same sentence. It really is going so fast.  We had a scan today and all is well.  We were able to find out that one twin is a boy!  Yippee!  And the other is not confirmed, but the Dr thinks it is a girl.  We will have to wait another month until the next scan to confirm the sex if baby #2.  

I grew up in a family of all girls, with girl cousins next door.  I was scared of having two girls.  I am loving being a mommy to a boy.  Although I am sure I would have been fine if it was two girls….but I have to say I am so happy I get one more boy.  Although…if we want to get serious, sex is not a given gender identity and I am happy for all of my kids to be whoever and whatever gender they choose.

So 16 weeks in, I am having some serious round ligament pain, mostly on the right side.  I hope it is not going to get any worse as I grow.  I have an appetite that is beyond human.  Although I am more of a grazer.  I eat little bits, but all day long.  Every 30 minutes pretty much.  I haven’t gained much weight but my belly is huge for 16 weeks.  

I finally was able to get a hold of all my family members, so they all know about the twins now.  So glad the cat is out of the bag.

And that is the update….
