We had yet another ultrasound last week, however these babies seem determined to keep me in suspense over their gender. The ultrasound tech was able to get some fairly decent views, but because of the babies small size, the results are still inconclusive. After looking at the babies and finding two that definitely appeared to be boys, she did feel that the other babies, whose parts were less obvious, were likely to be girls. So her conclusion (with 70% confidence--the statistician in me had to throw that in) was that there are three girls and two boys! This would be the ideal gender split, in my opinion, so I am hoping she is right! Check out our website if you want to view the ultrasound video (from March 21st) and make your own conclusions.
During this ultrasound, the technician also took several measurements on all the babies and found that they were all measuring 1-4 days larger than average. This is frequently not the case for higher order multiples, so we were very happy to hear that our babies are doing so well!
Below is a recent shot of my belly. I will be 16 weeks tomorrow, but my size is equivalent to about 26 weeks for a singleton pregnancy.
As you can probably guess, the only photographer available to take the picture at the time was my 4-year old daughter, Kaiya. I am pretty sure she felt the need to express her creativity by using a unique camera angle.
