Today I went for my 16 week checkup and ultrasound. My parents were in town so they came to the doctor's visit with us to take a peak at the twins. When the girl was checking the twins over I asked her to see if we could get a gender call on them. Even though it was about a week or two early she said, sure, we will look and see if we can see anything. Unlike Ashlyn Kay (who did not cooperate at all) these babies were ready to share their parts with us. Jeff was hovered off me while I was lying on the table like he might pounce on the machine. We originally thought Baby B was a boy and Baby A was a girl. She scanned over Baby B and said, "oh, my this one is a girl". Jeff just sat down and never looked back at the screen. He knew at that moment that they were both girls. The technician tried to reassure Jeff that we had one more chance to get a boy. Jeff knew he had lost this battle. She looked at the second baby (Baby A) and then again there were the infamous 3 lines. TWO GIRLS! No one would have guessed it at all. It was a shock for sure,but then again so was finding out we were having twins. So here we go....The Moran Clan is going to be a family of 3 girls!
Poor Jeff didn't say anything else the remainder of the doctors visit. He said tonight at dinner when we revealed the that the twins were girls that he felt like his life long dream was taken from him. That is so sad. Despite his disappointment we are happy to be having two healthy girls! We are going to name them Palmer Michelle Moran "Palmer" & Blakely Olivia Moran "Blake".
I will post pictures soon! They are adorable.
