The appointment today went well. Two heart beats, although my doctor thought it was hilarious to tell me there were 3. I wasn't even phased, I have so many u/s and had several doctors intensely search for a 3rd baby, and I KNOW there are only two in there.
I gained 7 lbs!! So now I am ONE pound up from my pre pregnancy weight!! It only took 5 months! I never think I throw up so much until I see how I CAN'T gain weight while pregnant. To me it's starting to become a normal part of pregnancy, if not a really annoying part.
I don't see my OB again for another month unless issues arise, but I see my MFM this coming Monday, my birthday, for an extensive u/s. It should last about 2 hours because they have to check all the organs in BOTH babies, and with just my son last time the 20 week ultrasound was 45 minutes. So it sounds like a really good birthday present to me!
I also had my suspicions confirmed, Elaine's placenta has moved in between her and me so she is kicking the heck out of it, but I am feeling nothing. It's very relieving to know that's why I suddenly stopped feeling her kicks.
The further I get into this pregnancy the more hope I have that I will have a good outcome. I know most issues with twins actually come AFTER 24 weeks, but for now I am trying to think positive.
