I absolutely cannot believe it. We went in today fully expecting horrible news because of all of the bleeding. I was actually in tears in the waiting room. I hopped up on the table and she starts looking around for what seems like forever. I asked her if people tell her that they are bleeding during pregnancy often and she responded “everyday of the week.” So after an eternity (ok, 30 seconds) she goes “Well it’s twins.” My heart skipped about 7 beats! She showed us both. Both babies are measuring 6 weeks and 3 days (which is a 2 day difference from what I had calculated) but she said plus or minus 5 days on either side is just fine. What was even more amazing is that both babies had heartbeats!!!! Baby A had a heartbeat of 119 and baby B had a heartbeat of 122. She played both of the heart beats for us….it was the most AMAZING sound I have ever heard.
I pretty much cried uncontrollably while DH held my hand. Hands down this was the best day of my life!
After we heard the heartbeats she looked for causes of the bleeding and said she can’t see any. The doctor assured me that this is good. She said bleeding is very common especially with twins. DH said that Baby B is probably kicking Baby A in the head and that was the reason for all of the bleeding.
We go back in 2 weeks for another u/s and some blood work to put together a taper plan for the estrace and progesterone.
Thanks so much for all of the support ladies! I wouldn’t have survived the weekend without you!!!!!
