15 WEEKS - SEX of the BABIES!!!!

BABY A = BOY (on my left side)

BABY B = BOY (in the middle)

BABY C = GIRL (on my right side)
21 JUL: The start of our 15th week! Every week we just feel so thankful that we have made it one more week! I am back to work today after taking a few days off last week due to my little accident.

22 JUL: We had an appt with Dr. O today!!! Very exciting stuff!!! The appt started as usual with Dr. O putting huge amounts of goo on my belly!!! Rob was very close by with his video camera!!! (Norma---we didn't forget!!!) The doc was trying to find everybody's position---they have shifted since our last appt!!! He finally decided which one was A--on my left, B in the middle and C on my right. As he starts measurements on the babies---he asks us if we want to know the sex of the babies!!! OMG!!! We so did not expect this today!!! We thought it would be too early however we are thrilled because Rob is leaving at the end of the month for 30 days!!!
Anyway, I have kept you waiting long enough. We are having--------

Our babies at 15 wks:
You begin to feel some fluttering movements as baby kicks, flails, twists and turns (but don't panic if you don't yet). They can also grasp, squint, frown, grimace and maybe suck her thumb!
Baby's legs have grown longer than the arms and the body is now longer than the head and they are moving those arms and legs often!
skin is very thin -- so thin blood vessel are visible. It's covered by a fine, soft layer of hair called lanugo. Lanugo comes from a Latin word meaning "down."
The three tiny bones in his middle ear have begun to harden. The auditory centers in your baby's brain haven't developed yet.
Fingernails and toenails are growing.
Eyebrows are beginning to grow and even the hair his head is sprouting. It will probably change color and texture after birth.
They are an amazing 3.98 inches (10.1cm) long and may weigh 2.47 ounces (70gm).
