I had my appointment this morning and it went great. As far as I was told last week it was supposed to be just bloodwork but we ended up getting the ultrasound also. Yay! We saw the babies and that alone has me smiling all day long =)
Twin A is measuring 8w5d with a heartbeat of 170 BPM
Twin B is measuring 8w6d with a heartbeat of 183 BPM
Great, great, great!
Twin B's position didn't allow us to see him/her clearly but we were able to see the umbilical cord. Weird. BUT Twin A's position showed us the little hand buds as well as its legs/feets buds. And the major thing? We saw Twin A moving! The tiny little legs flapping around! This was frigging amazing, maybe not a big deal for others but I can't get over it. I've been watching the video over and over. Yes, Jeff video tapes all of the ultrasounds so that we can watch them obsessively. And as the doctor said, it will be used to embarrass them when they are older.
So why am I sad? This was the last appointment at my fertility clinic. I love that place and as much as I'm happy that I graduated to a regular OB I'm still sad to leave them. Everyone at the clinic is nice and attentive and my doctor is just plain awesome. So much that Jeff wishes we could hire him as our personal OB and to help us give birth. No can do =(
If things continue to progress nicely and I'm blessed with the babies being born healthy we are so going back to make sure we get a pic of the doctor with the twins. Its a must! He did after all play a major role in impregnating me.
For now? I can't wait to reach the end of the first trimester so that I can breathe peacefully. I'm still scared and in the danger zone so I'm going to remind everyone again to please keep this info to themselves. Once I feel safe I just might start taking belly pics, no difference yet if anyone is wondering.... its all bloat and not anything you want to see, trust me!
