Sorry for the delay in updating! We found out around Valentine's Day (16 weeks) that we were having 2 girls! We were SO excited! Now we have a complete family of 2 girls and 2 boys!
The girls were born at 36 weeks 3 days and are doing great! They didn't have to go to the NICU which was amazing and an answer to prayer! They came early because I had developed Preeclampsia. We are all doing well adjusting to life with newborn twins and our new family of 6!

Last Appointment with Dr. Ke!

Monday I had my last appointment with Dr. Ke and I was 9 weeks 4 days.

Baby A was measuring 9 weeks 3 days and the heartrate was 180.
Baby B was measuring 9 weeks 2 days and the heartrate was 178.

I have gained 3 pounds total. Feel great! Just a little nauseous every now and then, but its mainly in the late afternoon or evening. And just tired :) But that is to be expected!

I am done with my progesterone shots and I have to use the suppositories until I am 11 weeks. 8 more days! Thank you for all of the prayers! We are so thankful and feel so blessed to have twins on the way and that they look so healthy!

First Appointment with Dr. Cole

I love my OB! Dr. Cole is fabulous and I was so excited about going to my appointment with her this morning. Going to McDonald Murrmann just makes the whole pregnancy seem more real! I am 8w4d today. Baby A measured 8w4d and Baby B measured 8w3d. Baby A heartrate was 181 and Baby B heartrate was 180. They look great! I go back in 4 weeks. Dr. Cole said I would deliver no later than 38 weeks. Obviously if I go into labor early or if I have preeclampsia again, I will have to deliver earlier. But they will be here on or before July 15, 2015! So thankful to be able to experience pregnancy again. God has truly blessed us!

Ultrasound #2

 Baby A
 Baby B
Last Wednesday I had my second ultrasound and visit with Dr. Ke. I was 7 weeks 6 days. Baby A was measuring 7w3d and HR was 173. Baby B was measuring 7w3d and HR was 162. They are looking great!
I got to start decreasing my progesterone shots to every other night until I run out of my vial of medication. And I started progesterone suppositories every night and I will do those until 11 weeks pregnant (21 days total).
We told the boys last night they were going to be big brothers to TWO babies! Here were some responses from the boys...
Ryder: "I think its either 2 girls or 1 girl and 1 boy. We don't need any more boys in this family. If we had 2 more boys we would have FIVE boys and only one girl!" He asked if we knew what they were and he was confused why we didn't know because Cole's mommy knows she is having a girl. "We get to take the baby on stage at Highland!" aka... baby blessing :) "You mean they will be born on the same day and have the same birthday?!" Ryder to Robbie: "It looks like you have a baby in your belly too!" Ryder to me: "Since you are getting fat, I am going to just call you Mrs. Claus!"
Mercer: "Wait... I wanna see the babies!" He lifted up my shirt and said, "Where are they?! I don't see them!" He is excited about being a big brother for the first time and not being the smallest anymore :)

Beta #1

I went yesterday morning for my first beta blood draw. Dawn, Dr. Ke's nurse, called me around 12:30 to let me know it was POSITIVE! And the actual number is 304! I go back tomorrow to get my second beta blood draw to make sure the numbers are doubling like they should! Thank you for all your prayers! We feel incredibly blessed that this round of IVF was successful!
