We had our 18w5d anatomy scan today and both babies are doing well. They each weigh 9 ounces exactly and baby a has a heartrate of 138 and baby b has a heartrate of 133. You may wonder why I am still calling them baby a and b and not by their names … Well that is because they actually couldn’t confirm the genders today. Baby a threw us all for a loop and three techs nor the doctor could confirm the gender! Baby B was not in a good position for gender.
We will be going again next Friday because since B was face down they couldn’t count the chambers so they will also check gender again then.
Here are some pics!
I had an OB yesterday and finally they listened for the heartbeats.
Baby B who is Henry is sitting high on my left side was fairly easy to find and his heart rate ranged from 140-144 and Baby A (anterior placenta) who is Joseph is sitting low and just under my belly button and his heart was initially 125, the doctor didn’t seem to like that and so he re did it himself and found both boys instantly and Joseph then had a heart rate of 132. He seemed to like that better. Joseph also kicked the Doppler, guess he was sleeping and didn’t like being woken up! The doctor thought it was pretty funny.
Next ultrasound is 18w5d 🙂
Yesterday we went for an elective ultrasound just to see the babies and for reassurance.
Well low and beyond she was able to tell the gender of both babies and they are both boys 💙💙
It was surreal! I honestly thought it was a boy and a girl but it really didn’t matter to me. I just wanted healthy and happy babies.
Baby B was awfully shy for a while but then showed his good!
I am in love all over again. ❤️👶👶❤️
