I had my consultation with the new OB today. She is nice and made us feel comfortable and the practice isn't too far from home. BUT her sonogram machine is pretty outdated. I've been so spoiled that I'm not sure if I would or should let that be a deal breaker. I know my old OB's machines are newer than this one but I didn't like that she always seemed busy which is why I wanted to try someone new. That and Jeff hated her nasally voice. I dunno what to do. Jeff is fine with this OB's voice so that's a plus. Though she is the only person in this practice so she'll probably be very busy too. Decisions, decisions! (The other practice has several doctors)
This was just a consultation but she went ahead and gave us an ultrasound when we both made disappointed faces about not seeing the babies. Score! As I said, the machine is outdated. There is no second screen on the wall for better view. She only had the tiny little old monitor and there was no sound so we didn't hear the heartbeats. We saw the flickers but that's it. Ok, that's not it. Baby A's hearbeat was 161 BPM and Baby B's was 172 BPM. How she figured that I don't know, the measurement was really fast. And we didn't get any sonogram pics, but maybe that's because it was just a consult.
The biggest thing? This was my very first abdominal sonogram. No more dildo cams, woohoo! Both babies were active, we saw them both moving a lot but Baby B took the upper hand on this one. Baby B seemed pretty hyper, I think after hiding out on us last week he/she was so excited to see us that he/she couldn't stay put. I loved every second of it... even if we had to squint to see them. Oh, and if you didn't figure it out by the title, this week they are each the size of a grape.
