Almost 11 weeks

Well, I am 10 weeks and 5 days along in my pregnancy. We went to the Dr last week and had an ultrasound done. Sterling kept popping his head in front of the screen so I couldn't really see much. He said they were moving all over the place and could see the hands and legs. He was so excited it was so cute. He'd move a little close to the screen every time and say "That is SO cool!" with a BIG grin on his face. They printed out pictures for us but all you can really see is a white line that is one of the babies spines.
The Dr wasn't able to see us that day because he had to run and do a delivery so, today I had to go in and see him today. He took me to do another ultrasound which was a lot more clear than the last one. I could clearly see the arms, legs, and heartbeat. I got to hear both of my babies heartbeats. They were very strong. I saw some movement and the Dr said the baby that we were focusing on was kicking. It was so amazing. Now that I think of where the other baby was in relation to Mr/Ms kicker I think he/she was kicking it's sibling in the head. So, I told Sterling that if one of them comes out with brain damage we'll know why. They are so big now. They take up all the room in the sack now. Their little legs are all scrunched up. I've heard you can find out the gender at 13 weeks and my next appt in at 14 weeks so maybe we'll find out then. I hope so. Sterling's mom keeps buying us stuff but she doesn't know whether to buy baby girl or baby boy.
Now that I'm pregnant I sometimes wonder why I wanted this so much. Things like today remind me why I wanted it so badly. I've been very lucky that I've only vomited 1 day of all of my ten weeks and 5 days.
We'd like to thank all of you who have kept us in your prayers. We're very grateful for what the Lord has blessed us with. We hope all if well with all of you and will continue to pray for you all as well.

Baby 'A' and Baby 'B'. We usually just refer to them as "the kids". I finally had Sterling scan a one of the ultrasounds we have of them.
From what I understand they actually look like humans now. They have grown their little arms and legs and move them and everything. We are very anxious to find out the genders. I keep having the strangest dreams that I give birth to puppies and chipmunks.
I don't know if I should be popping out yet but I feel like I kind of am. I felt really fat last sunday when I went to church.
Everything is still the same with Sterling and I. If anyone knows of any companies around that are hiring I would love to get into a new job.
