I am still a bit in shock that one isn't a girl as sick as I have been but what matters is that both look perfectly heathly! IP's got a DVD of the entire sono too : )
All measurements were right on track and several were measuring bigger. They appear to have big heads and one has a big ol belly..LOL One HR was 152 but hopefully Carrie can tell you the other. They both weigh perfectly at 5oz! All parts of the brain, organs, heart chambers etc looked perfect. Twin A was repeatedly kicking B in the head.. I think IP's are going to have their hands full with these 2 : )
I will let Carrie share pics of the boys. We go back at 20wks the end of June. Wow the 1/2 way mark is coming up fast!!
Weight gain since last visit: 4lbs
Total weight gain: 4lbs

Well, tomorrow we will be 15 weeks :) Stacey seems to be doing a little better and not feeling quite so 'ick' all the time. She is continuing to be upbeat and determined to take care of our little ones until she can hand them over to us when they are done 'cooking'.
On Friday, Craig and I took off to South Padre Island for a little vacation with my family. Probably the last vacation that we will have as just the two of us :) Stacey and I chit chat or text back and forth everyday and that didn't change just because we were on vacation... Early this week, Stacey let me know that we had hit a milestone--Our little ones were officially on the move and she was able to feel them kicking and wiggling! We are so excited!! We can't wait until they are big enough and strong enough for us to feel in her belly!
We are really looking forward to next week... Tuesday is our big ultrasound and hopefully we will be able to find out the genders of the babies!! Hopefully they will be cooperative and let us get a good look :)
On another note, we received a package in the mail from our IVF clinic which included a dvd of all the pictures from our journey as well as two birth announcement cards that they want us to mail back to them when the babies get here. It is so amazing that we have photos of our munchkins from the earliest stages... The first cell division after fertilization! Here are some of the pictures... ENJOY!

Just over 2 weeks to go for our big u/s to find out genders!! They said we'll go over facial features, organs, etc as well so sounds like we will get to see the little ones for quite a while that day : )

We were very much in awe of how much they have grown in the last 2 weeks and look so much more like BABIES now! Carrie & Craig got quite a few pics so I'll let her add those to the blog. Dr. T even let us have a sneak peak in 4D!! I will just say that one of them wasn't very shy with the leg spreading... We go back for our 16wk appt 5/31 and will have an even more in depth scan then to go over organs, features and find out for sure their genders!!!
Stats for today: B/P: 107/77 and to date have lost 3lbs ..3 more I can gain later on right :)
