Ultrasound Appointment

We had our latest ultrasound appointment yesterday afternoon and I was lucky enough to get to see the babies moving around for about 30 minutes!
This was a big ultrasound, where they have to measure everything and it takes twice as long to measure 2 babies, one of which was very busy in there. Little Boy was moving around like crazy and the tech was having a hard time getting good shots of all of his parts but what she did get looked good.

This was the first shot he gave us...he was very proud of himself, as was his daddy!

She wasn't very shy either. But hers was more like she was posing. She proudly gave the tech every shot she needed with no trouble. She's so photogenic already!

As far as we can tell, everything looked good. We didn't get to see the doctor because he had to go deliver a baby, so I go back today.
She is measuring at 18 weeks 5 days, and weighs 9 ounces. And he is measuring at 19 weeks 2 days,and weighs 10 ounces.
I did tear up at one point...When we got to see the hearts beating and the infrared thing that shows the blood pumping in the heart. It just means so much to me to see those little hearts beating every time because of what we went through with the other babies. I'm terrified each time that there will be no heartbeats, so it's such a blessing to be able to see healthy beating. Her heart rate was 153 and his was 147. Perfect!
