I went to the RE for blood work and ultrasound, and guess what – there are two in there! This beta thing is so weird. My numbers are less than what they were when I was pregnant with Alex, and yet this time, there are two! My nurse was so confident there were two in there that before I even got undressed she switched the setting to allow her to measure two babies. They both are measuring great. The sacs are both measuring 5wk2d, and I’m 5wk1d. There might be a hint of a yolk sac in one, but in the other they couldn’t tell. Still awaiting the results of the blood work, but based on the ultrasound, it all looks good!
Unfortunately my husband wasn’t able to come with me, so I called him right after the appointment and he immediately started talking logistics. How do you get 3 kids around? How do you travel? We need a big house. I told him we’ll figure it out, and it will all be fine, but yes, he’s freaking out a bit. And so am I. Three kids under 2 years old??? I know I shouldn’t be surprised, as we transferred two embryos, but this was my third transfer. And we had IUI’s. And months of timed sex. I’m not fertile! But it will certainly look like it when we pile out of our minivan (thank goodness we bought one right before we had Alex – it used to be for the dogs…).
Yes, I’m in a bit of a shock and freak-out mode. But I am excited. How special it will be to have two more babies in our life. Wow – just wow.
OK, now I need to figure this out. Is there anything different I need to do in this twin pregnancy to make sure they’re healthy? Twin mamas, do you have any good resources for me? There I go again – anything that comes my way results in reading another book!
