19 Weeks

I had my long ultrasound yesterday that looked at all of the anatomy of both babies. I think it was one of the most uncomfortable things to happen yet! The room was kind of warm, and with my allergy problems that made it kind of hard to breathe, and I had to lay flat on my back with my legs flat too so after awhile of this I got kind of dizzy! I asked to sit up but he had me lay on my left side for a bit and then raised the foot of the bed up. After that he made me stay on my left side, but I was turning my top half to the right because that's where the monitor was! My hips are still hurting from that awkward position I was in! Even though I was uncomfortable it was amazing to see my little babies! They are so much bigger than the last time that I saw them! The babies are currently laying like in a bunk bed, with one on bottom and the one on top up under my ribs. He even had to scan between two of my ribs to get a good look at the head of baby B! We got to see the every little bit of both babies, including all four chambers of the heart, their faces (though we didn't get a really good picture), and a good look at what gender they are! Much to Charles' despair they are both girls! I can see him getting a shotgun in the near future to scare all the little boys away! We have pretty much settled on the names Emilyn Elisabeth and Hailey Grace, though if we find a second family name we like we may change Hailey's middle name. Both babies are weighing in at 11 ounces already, and measuring about 5 days ahead of what they should be at.

This week I have been feeling the babies move more than ever! Today especially they seem like they have been jumping all over. I can't wait until Charles can feel them moving around too! My Doctor turned in my paperwork for my medevac flight off island, so hopefully before too long it'll get approved for me to come back to Oklahoma instead of to Japan and I'll get my flight booked! Though I am being sent off on medevac, since I am not sick or in need of an escort they will just be buying me a commercial ticket back to the states. I can't wait to get back and see my family, especially my new little nephew Sawyer. Since the last post Sawyer was discharged from the hospital and is doing much better now at home with his mom and dad!
