Yay! Today is 12w1d so less that one more week until we cross the line into the second trimester! Woohoo!
We had our NT scan yesterday and I am very pleased to report that the lil ones passed with flying colors. I apparently have the risk of a 20 year old. The best part is that they look like actual babies now. Okay, maybe shrimp-like babies, but babies for sure. They went from blobs to gummy bears to now actual babies! It was so cool to see their brains and spines and beating hearts and little hands and feet and to see them moving around and turning and twisting! They were measuring a little ahead – I think they were 12w1d and 12w3d. The sonographer had a hell of a time getting baby A to cooperate (she must be a girl! 😉 ). I had to lay on my side. I had to cough. But we got a good peek eventually. Oh, and I learned that one placenta is anterior and one is posterior. Oh, and I’m only up 6 pounds total so far. It’s hard work, eating for three! (Although my OB reminded me that I’m not really eating for 3; I’m eating for one pregnant lady. 🙂 ) Fun stuff! Definitely on cloud 9.
My practice has several doctors so each time I’ve been, I’ve met a new one. I loved the guy I met yesterday. He told me sushi was fine (although I’m not craving fish) and he gave a great explanation on progesterone supplementation which really put my mind at ease since stopping progesterone over a week ago. I get to go back in 2 weeks for a peace of mind ultrasound (At their suggestion! I love my practice!) and then again in 2 weeks for the 16 week anatomy scan. And then we’re going on a babymoon! Not sure where, but somewhere in the US and somewhere warm. And somewhere I can use miles for the flight because they’re burning a hole in my pocket!
