Is the suspense killing you? The wait is over. It’s time for the Wallace Twin Gender Reveal! Will the twins be one boy and one girl, two girls or two boys? Not two of each as I accidentally say in all the excitement!
Twin Gender Reveal
Here’s how we revealed the gender of the twins to our three lads. Before this, they had no idea. Watch the video and all will be revealed!
What do you think? I was blown away when we found out.
The big scan
The gender of each of the boys was a surprise at their brith. This time around we figured we’d had enough surprises already.
The scan was amazing. The twins are growing and are both healthy and strong. It’s fascinating seeing two babies! During the scan the sonographer might be checking twin B and suddenly twin A’s foot or hand would pop in to view. It’s such an amazing thing to watch. At one stage during both babies feet were next to each others and we could clearly count all TWENTY toes.
But, back to the twin gender reveal. After doing all the important stuff, the sonographer told us that twin A was a girl. Mr Wallace and I exchanged smiles, what lovely news! Then it was time to find out whether twin B was a boy or girl. I’ve no idea why, but the excitement and the emotion really kicked in when the sonographer said ‘congratulations, another girl’. I cried, actually, I sobbed. There were tears of joy and tears of relief and tears of utter shock, again! Having never cried before at a scan, I’ve been a total wreck with this pregnancy.
The pregnancy has been a huge roller coaster of emotions. First there was the total surprise of finding out we were pregnant with twins. Then, once the double hormones struck, came the struggle of the first trimester. Finding out the twins are two girls was amazing, and another massive surprise. I was convinced my body only made boy babies!
Of course, we would have welcomed and loved the twins regardless of their gender. Yet I can’t deny that twin girls is exciting. There will almost be a gender balance in our house. Mr Wallace will get to experience being a father to daughters. I’ll be able to sew all the pretty things for little girls. The boys will have sisters! The twins will grow up with three big brothers. Honestly, I couldn’t have asked for anything more. I feel incredibly lucky, and dare I say, blessed, to be having two daughters.
Now I need to get my head around parenting (a) twins (b) girls and (c) five kids!
Two girls, can you believe it?
