Pregnancy News: 12 week appt

Hi friends,

I had my 12 week appt with my perinatalogist/ MFM doctor. She's a high risk doctor and my OB referred me to her as she refers all women with multiples. Ill be seeing Ob/ peri every 2 weeks. I'm excited for all the extra monitoring, which means we'll get to see babies on u/s every time!

Here is a picture of both babies. I also had NT scan (measures neck to look for Down syndrome). Both babies are healthy! Praise The Lord! We are waiting for bloodwork results for more testing. We stand in faith that those will come out normal as well.

And the exciting news, Baby A looks to be a girl!!! The doctor was so sure and confident she is. Baby B, we could not tell. Could be a boy because something is showing but also a girl. Ill see her again in 4 weeks. So we wait. We feel so blessed that they are healthy and that is truly what matters : )

Pregnancy News: 10 weeks and first OB appointment


How far along?: 10 weeks
Total weight gain: 114 lbs at home. Don't ask me how much at the doctor's office. I had yummy PF Changs for lunch :) and of course my appt was right after!
Maternity clothes?: Not yet! But almost there. I bought maternity pantyhose and leggings today. Why didn't I own these already?! I, (as in me), My belly can not stand it being too tight.
Stretch marks?: None. I didn't get any with Jayden. We'll see if the good genes stick with this pregnancy : )
Sleep: My energy is coming back, at 10 weeks! It's a glorious feeling not to feel like I'm going to fall asleep standing up!
Best moment this week: Seeing the babies move around while getting scan done. One even flipped over (I think it was Baby B!)/
Miss Anything?: Not missing a glass of wine anymore. I'm missing my skinny jeans already! LOL
Movement: Umm. I think! I felt something just a couple of days ago. It might is in my imagination.
Food cravings: Fruit! I picked up a few things at the grocery store today and most of it was fruit!
Symptoms: More stretching in my uterus especially on the sides. I might be up a cup size already, but the "girls" are not sore!
Anything making you queasy or sick: It can vary. Today it was bananas. I don't think I was up to eating them today.
Labor Signs: Nope.
Wedding rings on or off?: On. We'll see how long it lasts!
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: My next appt is with the perinatologist, Dr. A. Dr. C (my obgyn) is referring me to a high risk specialist. I will have an Ultra screen done with Dr. A (not looking forward to that as they are checking for any genetic issues. I am leaving it all to God and know that He is watching over our beautiful and healthy babies!) but we might have a chance to find out the gender soon!

My appt with Dr. C was long! I had forgotten how long first OB appts can be. Her u/s machine is not as good as the one with Dr. D (RE) but I was so overjoyed and feel so blessed to see the babies moving already!
Thanks for reading!

Pregnancy News: Second Ultrasound

I had my second ultrasound last week. Jayden and my mom came with me since B was working. We heard and saw both babies hearts beating. Jayden was amazed!
Baby A HR was 174, and Baby B was 178. I truly believe they are the same gender! We'll see what God has in store for us. Either way, we feel completely blessed through this journey.
Thanks for reading,
Katherine
