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….

Baking cookies

When DH and I were first married, we relocated and lived with my in-laws for a short time while sorting out our housing. In the afternoon we would sometimes disappear for a ‘nap’ and when anyone asked where we were my father-in-law would say, “they are baking cookies”. Embarrassing, yet hilarious. Even now I refer to sex as ‘baking cookies’.
