I went for my 2nd ultrasound yesterday. I heard both of the heartbeats and saw both of the babies again. They still just look like two blobs. The doctor said I have subchorionic bleeding in my uturus but said this is nothing to be concerned about. I was released from Dr. Ziegler (the fertility doctor) and have my appointment with my OB-GYN on Wednesday.
We went for our first ultrasound this morning at 9:00. The ultrasound tech looked to see how many babies there were and told us there were two. We are having twins! We saw both babies and saw the heartbeats on both. We also heard the heartbeats although Baby A's was an easier heartbeat to hear because Baby B is hiding behind Baby A. Stu is a little shocked but he has 8 months to get used to the idea of twins. The top picture is Baby A and the bottom picture is Baby B.
I went to the doctor's office again this morning for bloodwork. Normally they would have had me in two days later which would have been Saturday but they were not open so they had me come in today. The embryologist told me that they were looking for my numbers to at least quadruple. My number on Thurday was 485. My number today was 2456! So it more than quadrupled. The embryologist told me that the high number means there is a good chance that there is more than one baby. I go next Friday, February 15th for my first ultrasound. That ultrasound will be with the ultrasound tech and they will be looking to see how many babies there are. The next ultrasound will be with Dr. Ziegler.
My name is Karen and I have been married to my husband Stu for a little over 9 years. I was pregnant with twins and lost our baby girl at 20 1/2 weeks after I had premature rupture of membranes. I stayed pregnant with the other baby and our first child, Brandon Tyler, was born on July 5, 2008 at 26 weeks and 1 day. Our second child, Wesley Matthew, was born full term on June 29, 2011. This blog is documenting our children.
