Babies, 20 Weeks

Wednesday, September 5th, 2007

Our babies are developing normally and look beautiful. In fact, both are fairly close in size and doing well for twins. One worry with twins is that the babies can be different in their development but our little guys are right on track. They measured around 11 ounces today.

It was quite funny during the ultrasound as Baby A was as stubborn as can be and crawled up into a tight ball for most of the ultrasound (he is hiding out in my lower abdomen right now). At one point he was literally on top of his head and both the technician and I said, "That just can't be comfortable!" He really made the technician work to get shots of all his various organs, as this was the full fetal survey and they measure all the major organs, bones, etc.

Baby B was hanging out right near my belly button and the technician thought she had it easy until he started wiggling around and at one point moved down to touch his brother's head and as the tech said, "Say hello to his brother."

After the ultrasound the technician asked us what names we were thinking of and we said Noah and Jonah. She asked if we knew who was who and I said not really. She suggested that the more stubborn of the two, Baby A, be Jonah! What a good fit.

Now, most of you know how names change. We've been through several names but right now we seem to be stuck on Noah Mark and Jonah Coy. We'll see if they continue to feel right and suit us but I don't think any final decisions will be made until we are holding our two boys in our arms.

Also, several of you have requested belly photos, while these are obviously not my favorite (what woman likes others seeing her ever increasing waistline?) I decided to take a few. I even got a bit creative and held up two little pairs of socks just to get the visual of the two little ones developing inside.

Stay tuned.........there is more exciting news to come, we are sure!

Hey there! Thanks for the update. We're not so worried about how you think you look in pictures. We think you look amazing! I speak for all of us. :)

Thanks for sharing the link! I love that I can come here to look at the boys whenever I want. Just keep my offer in mind! I have weeks that you can use for child care. That's how much I love you. xoxo
