Today, I had my 12 week appointment. I was late, due to a crazy wreck on the highway. The roads were extremely icy, and a 20 minute drive took me an hour.
I immediately had an ultrasound, and was sooo happy to see two healthy bouncing babies. This appointment was much more enjoyable, due to being much more calm.
Baby A was quite the hyper little thing, and continually flipped every which way. He/she made it extremely difficult to get any pictures and heartbeat. But we did manage to get a heartbeat at the end.
Baby B was a tad bit more calm, but I couldn’t help but think about how I might already be seeing a little bit of their personalities. And then wondered what it will be like to feel two babies kicking me in the next few months.
This past week I’ve started feeling better. If I stay on my Zofran, I can function for most of the day. At night I still get extremely sick, so I go to bed early and try to sleep it off. Today they noted that I’ve lost 2 lbs. During the past month I lost more than 2 lbs, but once I started eating this last week (like one to two sausage egg mcmuffins every single day…cravings) I put quite a bit back on. I’m so grateful for Zofran, I honestly don’t know how anyone could survive without out.
Next appointment (16 weeks) we will find out the gender. Eek! We can hardly wait. According to their heartbeats today, it would be a boy and a girl, but she said not to count on anything.
I’m definitely showing, I still don’t know how I’m going to fit 2 babies in there… but let the adventure begin!
