We’re having 2 baby boys!!!
The babies were great for the ultrasound (the tech kept commenting about how cooperative they were – mommy says STAY THAT WAY!) and definitely were NOT shy about letting us know they were boys!
They looked great – the ultrasound took about an hour and was extremely in-depth… so far these boys are healthy and perfect. They are even measuring big right now (one is measuring over a week ahead, one is measuring a couple of days ahead) – we’ll see if that holds up… but it would be a good thing since they will probably come at least a little early. Everything went so well that Lauren was released from the high-risk doctor – praise the Lord! The pregnancy is still technically high-risk because of multiples, but as low as it can be for twins, which is a huge relief.
Here’s Mom & Dad Zaepfel finding out that two grandsons are on the way:
We’re thanking the Lord for our two boys!
“Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from Him.” -Psalm 127:3
Felt them moving this week – a lot! You can also feel them from the outside – at least the one on top who’s squished up against the skin. Unbelieveable! We’re looking forward to seeing how they’re laying at our ultrasound tomorrow so we can know WHAT body parts keep sticking out! (It’s probably not too flattering when you’re not sure if you’re touching your child’s head… or butt!)
Tomorrow is our big high-tech ultrasound uptown with the high risk doctor. We’re praying everything goes smoothly and that they are healthy and growing just as they should be. We’re looking forward to getting some more twin-specific questions answered as well. And OF COURSE, hopefully finding out just what we’re dealing with as long as they cooperate! Don’t be modest, babies!
So one of my second grade groups is REALLY into the babies thing (they just found out a couple of weeks ago). Today, a few of them decided to throw out some name options for me. Here are the highlights:
- Flower and Heart
- Spiderman and Superman (or Batman, or X-man, or the Hulk – all perfectly acceptable options)
- Dora and Diego
- Monster and Truck
- Super and Awesomeness
With all of these fabulous suggestions, we shouldn’t have any problem picking out a couple, right?!
Ashley sent us this photo the other day – apparently she’s decided it’s a must-have baby shower present. Or not.
It’s called a Peekaru. Call us scared.
PS – imagine 2 heads coming out of that thing.
