Nt Scan Update - 12w2d
Fri, 01-21-2011 - 1:19pm

2 moving babies. heart rates 166 & 168.

Dr says measurements look good. Going back for 2nd blood draw @ 16w.

Scan was awhile as Baby B did not want to give us a profile. Dr said identical twin boys, but dont tell anyone boys yet as its still early. Also said amniotic fluid level looked normal.

He said 17% chance of TTTS & also risk of uneven placental sharing, so I get u/s every 2 wks starting @ 16 wks. Its a PALs dream ;) He said drink extra protein drink as its been shown to help.

I was so dead after that I totally forgot to ask OB about 18wk scan & she didnt mention it. In fact I dont see her again for 6wks. The OB appt was boring, she said it was too early for amniotic leak.

That's so awesome, Mindy. I'm so glad your little "boys?" are doing well! Pretty cool that you get such frequent ultrasounds too. That should keep your fears at bay.
