We've actually known for a week now, but I didn't want to post anything because my parents were out of town and we wanted to surprise them with some cool news. Because I tell my mom pretty much everything (and she tells my dad the salient points), she's known from the start when we were doing IUI's, IVF's, FET's and she always knew when we got bad news. She knew right away when we got pregnant too, so there just hasn't been an opportunity to surprise them without the expectation of some type of news.
After our ultrasound on Monday, I called my mom to tell her everything looked great. But I held back a bit. I didn't tell her that we were able to see Apple and Banana's genders with some level of certainty. Yes, I lied and said that they weren't able to tell yet. It was a long week waiting for my parents to get back into town. When they did, they found a little treasure hunt set up in their house.
When my parents opened their garage door upon returning from their trip, this is what they saw (if you can't read the signs, click to make the picture bigger):
The rest of the signs led them through the house until the final surprise!
And behind the Baby A and Baby B signs was a little stuffed bear for each holding a little ultrasound picture:
The pictures have a bit of a glare and yes, they are pink because our printer ran out of black toner. So, the scanned versions of the actual photos are below. Apple was being a little shy, but the tech was about 70% sure it's a girl! Banana wasn't so shy and the tech was about 90% sure it's a boy! So, looks like it could be boy/girl twins for us-for now anyway-to be confirmed at the next scan hopefully. If you can't tell, the pictures below show a view as if the babies are sitting on the camera with their legs stretched out in front of them. You can see two legs and the little bums and a little something in between for Banana. We are beyond excited!
