Baby Genders


So, I'm guessing you are wondering what these babies are and who won the drawing......

Baby A is a ...........









BOY!




With boy parts right where they are supposed to be!











And Baby B is a ..............














BOY too!







With boy parts right where they are supposed to be as well!







Can you believe it? My intuition was way off base! Who even cares- I am going to have two sons! I'm honestly thrilled with this news and even more thrilled that everything looked so great on the ultrasounds! Both babies had great heart beats (155 and 159), one weighs .6 ounces and the other weighs .7 ounces, and they both already have their own personalities in the womb. Baby A is laid back, makes it easy to get great photos, and has the slower heart beat. Baby B is always bouncing around, upside down, hands waving, hard to get photos of, and had a much more loud and distinct heartbeat. Hilarious!

I was also asked and realized I hadn't mentioned it, but the boys are not identical twins. The doctor said they will likely be as different as night and day, and from the looks of things on the ultrasounds, that just may prove to be true.

Two boys. Two bouncing baby boys. Man, we are in for a real action-packed adventure, I'm sure!

Thank you to all who guessed on the genders; I had a good time reading each of your responses. There were a few that guessed two girls, many of you that guessed one of each gender, but 6 people in total guessed two boys (4 in the comments and 2 via email). My best friend's mom, "Mops," actually told me we were having two boys the day she found out we were having twins, and my understanding is that she has not been wrong about a baby's gender yet. What a track record!

But, the winner of the drawing out of those that guessed two boys is.......(drum roll, please).......
Miss Anne.

Miss Anne, email me at ashleywithtwins@gmail.com to claim your special prize, which happens to be some stationery created by my good friend, Danielle, also known as The Design Girl. She's having a sale right now that everyone should check out and take advantage of- NOW! You can check out her website and all of her creations, but let me just show you a sample of the stationery Danielle creates (she also has other creations - address labels, blogs, moving announcements, birth announcements, etc) because I am sure you will all be jealous you didn't win the prize.....

I'm sure you also noticed that in honor of the genders, Danielle / The Design Girl has changed the blog colors too. Thank you, friend! You are so good to me!


Additionally, I wanted to post my eighteen-week belly shots. I'm scared to step on the scale, so I have no clue how much weight I have gained, but I'm sure the doctor will be quick to point that out when I go next time.And I'll have you know- I am not growing; the BABIES are growing!



P.S. If you are the praying type, I would like to ask for prayers for Tucker Bug. He is not doing well at all, and there were complications with his surgery. I don't want to say too much and get anyone upset because the news about the babies is super exciting, but there is a possibility we we may have to put the little guy to sleep in the next day or two if his condition does not improve. I'll post more later, but I've had a few ask about him. Thank you for your thoughts.

As soon as I saw your header I sighed an "oh, no!" 'Cuz I knew I totally lost! And I don't know how to make boyish things (unless bows are now the "in" thing for ALL babies. LOL) DANG! Except, that I'm totally jealous... 2 boys are going to be SO MUCH FUN! I can already see you on the sidelines of all their sports activities. You are going to be the best Mommy!

HOORAY for boys!

(I will absolutely keep Tucker in my prayers, as well as your cute little bundles!)

Congrats on the news! I have one boy (and a girl on the way... due 11/1 - we're pretty close!). My boy is the light of my life and I'm praying for the same for you - times two!

I'll be praying for your sweet dog and for you guys as you go through this. Glad I found your blog (through Danielle, btw!)!

Jess said...

Congratulations Ashley!! You're going to have so much fun with those little guys. Logan's just about seven months now, but in that short time I've already learned that boys love their mamas!!! I'm so excited for you :)

mommara said...

Yay for team blue. It is so fun!

Danielle said...

Well, this post isn't a surprise for me, but I wanted to leave a comment and let you know how excited I am. Look how cute your boys are!

I am so SO excited. I keep thinking of how cute and sweet Logan is. You get TWO of those. Not one. TWO.

Your belly is looking so cute. I love it.

I have been thinking about Tucker Bug constantly. You and Tuck were my first thoughts in the morning when I woke up. Even with what we are going through with Bo, I just can't stop thinking about you guys.

I'll talk to you when I get up. Hope we get some great news today. I am hopeful.

Love,

D

Ultra, super congratulations on your two sons!

As the mom of soon to be four sons, I can tell you that raising boys, so far, has been such a joy - never boring and boys sure do love their mommas!

My daughter is a little disappointed about the 4th brother but she is well loved and protected!

Can't wait to see photos once they are hatched!
