Congratulations, bodhi! What a beautiful little boy!

I went in Tuesday for what I thought was a routine cervical check, and they ended up being able to tell the sexes. I asked the sonographer to write it on a piece of paper, though since I wanted to open it in private with Carl. Well, because of power outages his parents have been staying with us, so I had to wait until last night when they finally went out to surprise him with the envelope.

We're having a boy and a girl! We had one name for each picked out, and now we don't have to think about it anymore! I still want them to reconfirm since I'm going in for frequent ultrasounds anyway, but Baby A--the girl--tends to be more cooperative than Baby B, so I'm pretty confident.

Oh wow, a boy and a girl! That's so exciting (and even better that you don't have to figure out any more names!) Congrats!

Congratulations, bodhi! He's just beautiful.

And eep! So excited for boy/girl kind twins! I feel like the cuteness is going to be absolutely lethal.

I need to stay out of this thread. You guys make me want another baby.

Trying to be patient... boy that whole "due date" thing messes with your brain. I didn't expect to suddenly feel so extremely impatient once the magic day had come had gone without a baby. 40 weeks and 3 days now. Boo.

I've been wondering how things are going for you! Good luck and try to get some rest.

i know mr. bird is a little bummed though. this is probably going to be our last and he has this idea about "passing his name on to a boy" which is totally sexist, but whatever, i get it.


I have to admit I've really struggled with this mindset in myself. It's so ingrained, ya know? My common sense tells me it's ridiculous and doesn't matter but the conditioned part of me still struggles with it.

That being said, if I have another girl this time (and I think I am having a girl - we'll see!) I've come to be totally okay with it. In fact, I'm kinda not sure now what I'm going to do with a boy if I *do* have a boy.

No real updates at this point from me except the misery continues and I can't wait to have baby out of me.

ALSO... Bodhi, Zephyr is beautiful!

Zephyr is GORGEOUS! Congratulations, Bodhi! And boy/girl twins for DTBK—so exciting!

I don't have much of an update. I'm still pregnant, 34 weeks and change. Baby has ZERO growth-restriction issues despite the whole bicornuate uterus thing—they guessed her weight at around 5 lbs a couple weeks ago—so that's awesome. I've been feeling pretty depressed lately, and trying to remind myself that it's the hormones, it'll pass, all that jazz.

Congratulations, Bohdi! Zephyr is just beautiful!

And congratulations to you dtbk! My advice to you is to really watch your iron levels. I ended up so anemic that I had to get iron infusions. Just one baby can really deplete your iron stores. And the other warning I have is that gestational diabetes is much more likely with multiples. I was shocked when I was diagnosed with it. It hasn't been too bad and has probably kept me from gaining excessive weight, because it's made me much more aware of what I'm eating. But I still wish I didn't have it. I know there's really nothing for you to do with that info, but I just wish I had been aware of the increased risk.

I have not been on here for a while. Things have just been hectic. I'm 34 weeks and 2 days and I am feeling so huge and uncomfortable. But this is my 3rd week of working from home, which has been really nice. The twins are doing great though. They are getting quite big! At my last ultrasound last week, baby boy was measuring 5 lbs 5 oz, and baby girl was 5 lbs, 13 oz. For a while, it was really looking like a c-section was in my future because baby boy was breech and my placenta previa was not improving. But magically, at my last ultrasound, he had flipped head down and the placenta had moved out of the way completely. Such a relief! I'm just trying to prepare for their arrival. I still have a lot to do, but it's difficult because everything I do just wears me out. It's crazy to me to think that sometime in the next month I will go from a mother of two to a mother of four!

Yay annasrobbie...hope you are doing well and getting some rest. :)

Oh, every time I read the name Zephyr, I think about how cool it is. It's going in my hat for any potential boy babies.

Thanks to everyone for the well wishes! We are doing awesome, and Zephyr is so wonderful! (This will jinx it, I'm sure, but he rarely cries, and he only wakes in the night for feeding, but not to cry. He just makes those little hungry sounds!)

Annasrobbie - I hope you are doing well - if you haven't had your little one yet, hoping you're getting some rest!

Shannonlea - how exciting that your little guy has turned and your placenta moved. That's so great! Hope you can relax a bit for the next few weeks!

Refinnej - Aww, definitely put that on your boy name list! I love the name more every day. I would be happy to see other little Zephyrs running around! (Especially a potential PPK baby!)
