Dana: The ultrasound is scheduled for this Friday; it's the Big One we've all been waiting for where we'll be able to determine the sex of the little ones inside me. Everyone says that I should have a 'feeling,' but I really don’t. To be honest, I'm not sure what that 'feeling' would feel like. There are times when I see two little girls playing (like my adorable neighbors), and I almost start to cry because I get so overwhelmed with emotion. But mostly I chalk that up to the hormones. On the other hand, when I talk about them, I often use male pronouns.

In a way, it's fun not knowing. It gives me a chance to dream about our life with either two little boys or two little girls. But I am also glad that modern technology will cure our curiosity on Friday. I know every mother says this, but I truly believe that boys or girls, I will love them just the same.

A quick pregnancy update...In the last two weeks I have been to 12 appointments with different practitioners of various disciplines (massage, yoga, physical therapy, chiropractic, accupuncture) to help me with my sciatica. At this point, I honestly believe that I could write a book on sciatic pain and the various methods of pain relief. But no one would buy it since I can't seem to figure out how to make the pain go away. Walker mentioned 'pain management' the other day, and I figure that's where I am right now. The pain seems to have dulled slightly, and I've figured out ways to go about my life with as little strain on my body as possible. Yes, that would be me, doing the duck waddle down the street. I've gotten pretty good at it! I've also found tremendous relief in wearing a heavy duty weight lifting-type belt given to me by my physical therapist. Very hot.

So back to the question at hand...what do you think....

Before we found out the sex of our twins I had two thoughts. If it were two boys, I was already dreading two boys at two-years of age. If it were two girls, I was dreading two teenage girls.

On the other hand, two boys or two girls meant half a relay team (my wife and I ran track in college) and there were a million other cool things I thought of if it were two boys or two girls.

Then we found out it was one of each and that seemed pretty okay too!

How exciting for tomorrow!

The question marks are blue!

Oh my, how wonderful. I've decided that the two most glorious words in the English language are "my grandsons."

And now it's time to go baby-clothes shopping!
