It's a...

BOY and a GIRL!

Yay! We are very very happy about having one of each. Although we would have been happy with any combination - I think it will make it a lot easier for the babies (kids, teenagers, etc...) to have their own identities as they grow up not having a twin sibling of the same sex to be compared to all the time.

Baby "A" - the girl - is in the pictures on the left. Baby "B" - the boy - is in the pictures on the right.

It was really fun to see the babies on the ultrasound and to see how much they've grown and changed! We were told that they now weigh between 10 (girl) and 12 (boy) ounces. I checked out thebump.com again to see what size the babies are at 19 weeks. It says that they're the size of mangos and weigh about 8 ounces. I guess we've got some big babies, because at 10-12 ounces, they're weighing in at the average weight for 21 weeks!

We are now seeing two doctors - my regular OB and a high risk doctor. Everything is going okay now, but I feel good about having two doctors keeping an eye on me and on the babies! More appointments means more chances to see the babies and hear their little heartbeats. We'll just try to keep them cooking as long as possible!

Now on to the fun stuff... names and baby shopping! whoohoo! Juan is working right now on brainstorming some names. I already have a few names in mind, so I'll see if they're on Juan's list... If so, maybe the naming process won't be so hard! :)
