18 weeks! And the genders are.............

We are having a BOY AND A GIRL!!!!

So flipping excited and grateful that we are here!!! This is what a secretly wanted even though I would've been happy any which way.

Here is an update at 18 weeks:

Feeling Recently: still very sick, thought I was done getting sick everyday, but yesterday could not keep down a morsel.  Not even water.

Food Aversions: Mostly chicken and pork recently, especially if I look at it uncooked.  Blah

Cravings: Still seafood.  My dad brought home part of a 70 pound tuna from a fishing trip he went on and I just LOVED it!!

Weight gain: Total weight gain has been a total of 2 pounds.  Ya, like I said, I'm sick.

What was cool about this week? My anatomy scan was this week and they are doing great, one  is measuring quite a bit smaller than the other one, but they are both fine.

I was just wondering if you used the doctor's progesterone or brought your own progesterone from the US? I am going over this month and wanting to know what everyone else did. Thanks and congratulations1!

Thanks for the congrats everyone!!! I really appreciate comments so keep em' coming!!
Dink- I would bring your own progesterone on your trip, the stuff they give you is for pre-term labor, not for pregnancy support, the only reason I used it is because I didn't have any other choice. I replied to you on the Bump also in a little more detail. Good luck!

I'm heading to Barbados for IVF next month from US, and you have just shown me that my dream is possible. I'm 42 and childless now, so we're hoping for twins, and one of each would be awesome. I didn't want to dream too high (since the odds of even one are against us), but you've shown it's possible. Thank you!!!

TurQ- Good luck in Barbados! Please let me know how it goes!!! That wasn't one of our options or I would've seriously looked into it! What clinic are you going to?
