Friday Fun Day

Met first with the MFM (maternal-fetal medicine) Nurse Practitioner and she was really nice. She listened to my concerns and mentioned that Dr. K (the MFM) would decide if he needed to see me or not. I insisted that I wanted to meet him and have a consult with him like I was scheduled.

We then went in for our NT scan. We were in for like 30-45 minutes because dos bambinos don't like their backs! One was looking right at us with both hands up. The other was free floating on its belly. They were so cute wiggling around. We finally got the measurements needed and will get blood results soon. Both were measuring 11w6d, which is great.

Next up was the MFM consult with Dr. K. Big surprise.... I really like him AND I am definitely with him for the long haul. He was very understanding to my needs and very receptive to my pre-e past. I am not sure what the whole stink was getting in with him.... but I feel very comfortable with my care. I will be going in every 2 weeks and then every week once we get closer. Lots of u/s planned at appropriate times. All is good. 

Thank you for all the well wishes. We are pretty much loving every day we get with these little beans.

A Vent: A Day not to be Repeated

This has nothing to do with the babies. In fact, I am completely excited to have 3... yes 3, appointments tomorrow to discuss my future plans with a NT Scan to boot. 

Today though, has sucked royally. I have had my lunch "lost". I have had to stuff my face with greasy food to make up for lost time, and I have almost had a huge SUV take me out, run me off the road and then have the gall to flip me off for honking at her after cutting me completely off. Not only that, but I have to be at work from 7:30am-8:30pm for conferences.

Needless to say, I am ready to leave and not come back. I feel like I am at the brink of a breakdown.... and it is for no good reason. Here is to hoping tonight goes better.

Little Wiggles

After receiving some devastating news about a very dear and close friend today, I was a mess getting to my OB appt. Our good news is that everything is perfect. Both babies are looking beautiful, now measuring on track with HBs of 183 and 175. 

My heart is so very heavy for my friend. Today, I am thankful for my babies' health, but I am sending all of my love to ML and her family.

Seeing the Beans today :)

Today I have my last u/s ordered by my RE. They are actually sending me to a regular radiologist due to being past 9 weeks. I am actually 10w5d now! After our u/s, I have my pre-natal appointment with my OB's office. I am hoping after today that I will feel like we have a plan to keeping me and the babies as safe as possible. I will update later!

A New Start

7 weeks ago, my husband and I found out that I was pregnant after our 7th IVF. 3 weeks later, we found out that there wasn't just one heartbeat.... there was two :) A new start...

Not wanting to mix my Infertility/Loss blog with our new journey, Dos Bambinos came to be. If you would like to read about our journey to this point, see It Just Takes One. It focuses on our infertility journey and the loss of our daughter, Sophia.

You see, our little ones have lots of nicknames already in their 10 week grandness: peas and carrots, corned beef and cabbage, dos amigos.... pretty much anything goes. I plan to keep this blog as a way to document this crazy ride into being a mommy of twins and hope you will enjoy the ride with me.
