2nd Appointment...

I had my 2nd appointment today and everything looked great! We got to see both the babies again and they were still measuring on time with strong heartbeats. Here is their 2nd debut:

The Doctor tried to get one with both of them in it, but they are already independent and want their own spotlight. I'll have to give them a nice lesson about sharing early on, I can tell. It's funny because the one in the top picture appears to be our little movie star, looking straight at the camera and the one in the bottom picture seems a bit more shy, covering its face up and curling into a ball. We are told that they do appear to be fraternal twins right now so we could have 2 boys, 2 girls, or a boy and a girl!

All in all the appointment was pretty quick and painless (i.e. I didn't have to give up 4 pints of blood... this may be an exaggeration, but it was a lot the last time). I was told that I will be able to give birth naturally (with meds of course) as long as both heads are facing down, otherwise I will have a C-Section. One last tid bit I was informed of is that as of 30 weeks I will be put on bed rest. So I will be 30 weeks as of January 24, 2010, please open your calendars now and plan on making many visits. Or I may be moving in with someone :)
