Yesterday was another ultrasound for the twins! They were so cute to see on the 4D ultrasound!
Here’s Twin A (our little girl): She is currently head-down and in first position to come out. If she stays this way (PLEASE pray that she does) then my chances of a normal delivery (meaning no C-section) are very good. It looks in the picture like her eyes are open, but they aren’t (trust me, I asked). The tech said that it was just the angle of the view that made it look like eyes were open.
And here is Twin B (our little boy): Yes, he is still a little boy. I was seriously just praying for no more surprises on gender. He was very cooperative about getting his picture taken the entire time, though he was moving around quite a bit. He is currently laying transverse right on top of his sister, and he’s breech. But they don’t think that’s a big deal, as long as Twin A stays head-down.
As for me: I feel pretty darn good, all things considered. I mean, I feel pregnant, but that’s to be expected at this point. I have to take a nap every afternoon or I won’t survive. I’m on a very aggressive iron supplement regimen, since my iron was low last week (and I’ve had iron issues before, especially after delivery). Hopefully getting more iron in my blood and marrow will help with the energy. Here’s a picture of me & Abraham taken last weekend:

- that God would give us good, consistent helpers to be with us in the first few months.
- that both babies would be born healthy and whole.
- an excitement in our hearts that will grow and grow.
- a smooth transition to being a family of 6 (YIKES).
It’s not going to be long before I’m posting out-of-the womb pictures for everyone to see! I can’t believe it’s coming so soon! Thanks so much for praying and for sharing in this crazy journey with us.
