Babies Sexes!!!!

So as promised today was the day we were hoping to find out the sexes of all the babies. It took a little begging but the doctor let us in on the results. He saw fit to mess with us a little, he was pretending not to look for the sexes during the exam even though he actually was. I am not sure if he would have given us the results today but AJ threatened not to leave the office until he did, eventually he gave in and the results made both of us very happy.

Baby A and B (Identical Twins) - Boys
Baby C - Girl
Baby D - Girl

Amy-Jo was so excited she got her girls and everything stayed even. Give credit to the OCD twins as not only did their splitting into identical twins give us the even number that AJ so desperately needed to keep her Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in check, they at the same time evened out the number of boys and girls. Not that she would admit it, but I think those two have already found a special place in mommies heart(*see disclaimer below).

The babies all looked great and A, B, and D all weigh about 5 oz. Baby C is a little ahead of the game and is weighing in at 6 oz. We have new pictures I will post later (I want to get this up quickly as I am sure there are some folks checking in already).

Amy-Jo wants to add that we love you all and thank you for all your prayers and support, keep them coming! We are half way there!

*Disclaimer - Any and all mentions of Amy-Jo's OCD is for entertainment purposes only. She does not now, or at any time, actually have OCD, only some small quirks which could qualify.

Here are the pics, the babies are getting almost too big to fit in the photos. You can really start to see the heads, fingers, toes and spines.

I found your blog through the Gerwers and I just had to congratulate you! I'm the mother of 6 year old quads, three boys (two of the three are identical) and one precious little girl. Mine were born at 27 weeks 3 days and although it was a rocky start, all is well now.
You are in for a wonderful experience! I have loved every minute of being a quadmommy and I wouldn't hesitate to do it again.
I have great info on freebies and such that I would be more than happy to share. Feel free to contact me if I can be of any help.
