Today marked my LONG wait and just over two weeks since I was confirmed pregnant. We went in this morning and they took my blood pressure and weight prior to walking me in. This was another vaginal ultrasound (like I’m used to) since it’s so early. My blood pressure was surprisingly normal and I’m still down a little from my transfer day weight.
I hiked up my dress, got in position and talked Justin’s ear off nervously while we waited for them to enter. When they came in, we discussed briefly how I was feeling, but got right down to business. Shortly after my friend Wanda entered me, I saw something, but was uncertain as to exactly what since this was my first time of an ultrasound looking for something inside of me. Then, came the best words I’ve ever heard: “Looks like you’ve got your money’s worth.” As the focus sharpened on the screen and blurred in my eyes, I could see two of the most amazing looking dots I’ve ever seen in my entire life. Twins.
Both have strong heartbeats as of now and just need to keep on growing. They’re both measuring right on at 6 weeks, 1 day. I have another ultrasound on 7/31. If both heartbeats are still there, the miscarriage risk drops to below two percent, so here’s hoping! 🙂
