I know something you don't know...

Neener, neener, NEENER!!!!



Should I tell?



Maybe I should wait until tomorrow....
















Who am I kidding??? I can't keep it in!




























It's a GIRL!

























And another GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



I'm more excited than I thought I would be (I really wanted a boy/girl combo) and Andy is in the fetal position crying in a corner somewhere. His mouth literally hung OPEN for a good minute...and then when he finally spoke he said "That's two weddings and two prom dresses and two boyfriends to bury!...I did NOT expect that AT ALL."

Babies look great, healthy, nothing out of the ordinary. They definately have separate placentas, which is REALLY REALLY REALLY good. Pretty much all twin complications are now a moot point...that's not to say that mommy might not have complications, but as far as between the babies themselves, everything couldn't be more perfect. YAY! We still don't know if they are identical or fraternal...fraternal twins ALWAYS have separate placentas...and if the egg split early enough in the pregnancy (I think before day 8), then they could be identical. We won't know for sure until they are born...either they definately look different or have different blood types. If they look alike and have the same blood type, a simple DNA blood test will be necessary to make the final determination.

I got my ultrasound on DVD, so I'm gonna fiddle with it tonight at home and see if I can upload a portion of it so that you guys can get a taste of what it's like to see TWO baby (girls!) up on that screen!

Ha Ha!! That sounds like Phillip's response when we found out that Eliannah was going to be a girl. He wrote up a list of all the reasons he would need to go out an exercise his second amendment right (mostly to prevent future boyfriends from getting any ideas.) Andy will get over the shock and then get wrapped around two sets of pinkies! So excited for you guys!! Glad everyone is healthy :)
