I had a doctor's appointment in the morning, and I knew that I was going to have an ultrasound to check my cervix, but I was thinking it was just going to be an internal ultrasound. I thought it would only be a quick one, but I was pumped to find out that they wanted to take a peek at the babies too! Of course I wanted to see them too, so that just made my day. Any chance I can get to see them...
**Just to clarify---we are working on names and won't be calling them Baby A and Baby B forever. Now we just call them "the peanuts" and are dwindling down our name list. We have one name that is a definite, but the second name we are struggling with.
I also had to do a glucose test at my appointment which I was not looking forward to since I have heard some negative things about it, but honestly, it wasn't bad at all. I chose to go with the orange flavor and it tasted just like a super sweet orange pop. I think it helps that they keep the stuff cold.
I saw another doctor in the practice (Dr. Rinzler) who was very nice and super thorough. She said with twins I should be measuring one month ahead, and I measured exactly that, so I am on track! She also said my weight was right on track and my cervix looked perfect. The babies were breech during the ultrasound, but they will probably flip around. My glucose test came back ok and so did my thyroid, but my hemoglobin was low, so now I have to take an iron supplement which I am not looking forward to.
My mom and I had lunch and did some shopping yesterday after my appointment and when I came home, these little gems were in my mailbox.
