Twin Books.

I have taken this weekend to educate myself about twin pregnancy.  I went to B&N and got 2 books…

When You’re Expecting Twins, Triplets, or Quads


Twins! Pregnancy, Birth and the First Year of Life


Are there any other books that anyone recommends?  I would like to find one about breatfeeding twins, but B&N did not have it.  I have already gotten good info on nutrition from the first one listed…it gave me great suggestions for protein and they actually sounded good.

8 weeks!

I had a songram today at 8 weeks and boy have the babies grown in a week and a half! All looks good…we even got to see one of the baby’s spines (super cool)!

  • Baby A: 8w3d with  a heartrate of 170
  • Baby B: 8w1d with a heartrate of 169

I have now graduated to my OB!!! My doc was very sweet and was genuinely happy for us…the goodbye was a bit emotional! However, I am anxious to call and set up my first OB appointment!

With today’s good news, I have decided to transition to a new blog…I am going to use blogspot because there are more options and I can order a print out of the blog.  There I will post the sonogram pics! Please check out for further updates.  We will always remember our struggle that I documented here and I do believe it made us stronger, but we now have begun a different journey.  I have appreciated and cherished your comments and support and hope you will continue to follow along.

Poll results are in…

  • 69 people said 2 babies
  • 10 people said 1 baby

69 people are………………CORRECT!!!!!!!!!!!!! There are 2 babies, 2 heartbeats….TWO!!!!!!!!!!! 

We are overjoyed and shocked! We knew the numbers could be indicative of twins but actually seeing and hearing that is unreal.  I felt like it was an out of body experience…that someone else was laying there getting the good news.  

  • Baby A measuring 6w5d with heartbeat of 123.
  • Baby B measuring 6w3d with a hearbeat of 119.
  • Due date Oct 9, but the doc said that I would not make it to that

I go back for another sonogram next Friday and then hopefully I will graduate to my OBGYN!  I can not say it enough, but THANK YOU to everyone for their love and support through all this! You all helped make this possible! We will keep praying that everything progresses as it should.  YEAH!

New numbers…

They look great, so I am officially 6 weeks today!

  • HCG = 55, 542
  • Progesterone =95.1
  • Estadiol = 1845

Now, we are just anxiously awaiting Tuesday’s sonogram!!! Oh, and they said no need for more labwork! Yeah!!!

As for symptoms…I am starting to be hungry all the time, but it is tricky because I am having a hard time finding things that sound good to me to eat. Fruit and salads are just about all that sounds appetizing…looking for sources of protein.  This morning I had a short bout of nausea, but drank some OJ and it was better.   As I am not wanting to get really sick, I am embracing these symptoms as a pleasant reminder that I am pregnant!! I am so thankful for today’s good news!


With the sonogram a week and a half away,
just wanted to get a feel for what you all think...

New numbers…

HCG…7778 …Did I hear her correctly? OMG!

I am officially meds free, so no more progesterone or estradiol! Just a prenatal vitamin cocktail for me in the morning.

We scheduled our sonogram for Feb 17th…I can hardly wait!  Can we fast forward please! I am still so nervous and hope that everthing will progress as it should, but so far so good!
