Happy weekend!

Hola!

Hope that everyone is enjoying their Saturday morning. 

We are now 20 weeks! Woot woot! We had an ultrasound yesterday to look at Baby B’s heart as they didn’t want to cooperate last time. After rolling over, going for a walk, going to the bathroom and some jumping jacks we finally got the pictures the doctors needed. 

Some of you may remember we were told last week that they didn’t think two boys but were unsure?

Well it seems that it is two girls! Am I a little shocked? Yes! Am I a little skeptical? Yes! Since we are high risk we have at least another four ultrasounds so I will ask them each time if they are still girls! Lol!

Have a great weekend everyone 🙂

Picture day!

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! 

In love all over again!

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 🙂

   
 

Say what? Two boys?!

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. ❤️👶👶❤️

   
 

Projectile vomiting?

No thanks!

Oh wait, thought I was past that. 

Last night was a rough night in our house, our baby beagle was incredibly sick all night and I couldn’t really do much to help clean up because it made me gag so bad. 

This morning he ate and immediately threw up, of course I started gagging again, thought that I worked through it. Sat down to blow dry my hair and gagged a couple of more times and then literally projectile vomited across the bathroom. So classy I am!

I couldn’t bring myself to ask Noah to help me clean it so I cleaned, continued to gag but thankfully held it together!

Happy hump day everyone!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Good morning everyone!

Hope that everyone is having a great day today 🙂 The twins and I dressed up today, okay well I wore a green shirt (a mint one at that!).

So today is a big day, well not really but in my world it is. I am no longer on any IVF meds, took the last of my progesterone last night. Eek. This body is now working on it’s own to support these two beautiful babies. I know that realistically I don’t need it anymore as the placenta’s are doing their job but it feels weird not needing to take them anymore.

Here are the twins and I in our green 🙂1014000_10156756766995637_5636541979307635682_n

 

12 weeks!

Wow, reached 12 weeks. I really didn’t think I would get to experience this. It is still rather surreal sometimes.

The babies are treating their mama pretty well with the exception of not being able to sleep very well. Hopefully that turns around soon.

Sometimes it is hard to describe the emotions any mama goes through. There is fear and anxiety that something is wrong or will go wrong. There is the excitement of seeing those little beings on the ultrasound, there are emotions that you can’t even describe. As the weeks progress I have more excitement then fear but every so often that fear creeps back in again. I quickly push it aside and remember that my body is in fine form and doing the best job it possibility can.

Hope that everyone has a great weekend!

  

Growing, growing, growing 

Went for my twin ultrasound today and great news is that the babies each have their own placenta! Woot woot!

They are growing so fast. I am currently 11w5d and they are measuring 12w3d so nice and big.

The tech was great and showed us lots and explained what she could. 

Next OB apt is next Wednesday, I hope to get their heart rates then because I forgot to ask today!

   
 

Hello from the twins!

The twins missed me yesterday so they gave me a little scare so they could wave and say hi!

Both are doing great and measuring ahead at 11w1d (I am today 10w4d) but the doctor says movement on either side is okay. Their heart rates are nearly identical at 166 and 165! 

Baby B was waving away at momma and Baby A decided to play it cool and have their arms behind their head as if they were chillin, silly babies!

My OB is quite perplexed as to why I am still bleeding as the bleeds are gone and nothing else indicates why. So I am still on light duty and not meant to do much. So I am following his words to a “T”.

Have a great day everyone 🙂
