PG - 16 Weeks 3 Days

Didn't mean to get some people excited thinking I'd be able to find out yesterday what the sex were of the babies we're having. We won't know until at least 2/23 when I have the 18-week Level II ultrasound. My OB doesn't do my ultrasounds, since I'm labeled "high-risk" with twins. I have my regular appointments with her and then I have appointments with MFM (Maternal Fetal Medicine) at the hospital, which is the building next to my OB's office.

I had my regular OB appointment for my 4 month checkup yesterday and everything looks great. She did have me in a room with an old ultrasound machine (gosh, I'm spoiled!) to check the heartbeats of the babies. She said they do that in the beginning with twins to make sure they are seeing both heartbeats. She didn't tell us heartrate or anything. I don't think she calculated it. So all is well with the babies. They were head-to-head during her quick scan. She said they were already conspiring with each other!

Cute story - I was helping my friend explain to her 2 1/2 year old daughter that I have two babies in my belly (and she can see in the dress I was wearing that my belly was a lot bigger). She looked down at her "milk gut" as I like to call it, and said "I have two babies in my belly too!" We gave up trying to explain. We figured when I get a lot bigger she might realize something is up, or when they are out and we have our hands full, she'll really get it. But I loved how she compared her belly to mine and made that statement. So cute!
