Had another appointment yesterday (will take place every Wednesday now, except for one random week in February) where I had an ultrasound, non-stress test, and doctor's visit. Much to my surprise, the ultrasound didn't include a growth check because those are done once every 2-3 weeks rather than once every week. So, my fears were… Continue reading 32 Weeks & First NST
Most of this is for myself and for my future babes to read about their journey into the world, so I figure I should keep track of my appointments. One week from yesterday, I started weekly appointments with my next one being today (and on Wednesdays for most of the remaining weeks). The babies looked… Continue reading 31 week update (delayed)
After a scare last week that caused some fetal monitoring, I anxiously awaited my ultrasound. The heartrate monitoring told me that the babies had moved which explained the "lack of movement" by baby boy, but the ultrasound would explain much more. The ultrasound showed that - uncommonly - our babies are now transverse again and… Continue reading Welcome to the last trimester!
Be thankful and grateful. We lost Justin's grandmother last night, which brings on a slightly more somber tone to our Thanksgiving in St. Louis this year. We left work early on Tuesday to spend some time with her as we were unsure if waiting until today was the right move. I'm thankful we got that… Continue reading Today and every day…
So much fairly uneventful information to catch you all up on! We had our level 2/anatomy ultrasound last week and everything looked great. We still have a little boy and a little girl growing along, albeit much more visibly this time. Weighing in at about 13 oz each at that time (they should each be… Continue reading Maternity Clothes and their Colors
RIP Kurt Cobain Wednesday was a very busy day. I toured a daycare (that I liked better than the previous, but there are not two open spots) and then diligently worked until it was time to see our sweet babies! We got to the ultrasound and didn't have to wait too long before we were… Continue reading In Utero… 16 weeks
I'm gonna see how many references I can make to members of NWA throughout this blog's tenure. After relaxing and reclining for the morning, I met Justin at the doctor at 1:30 PM. We were taken back to the ultrasound room quickly, something for which I was very thankful. It was my first belly ultrasound… Continue reading Today Was a Good Day
I saw my OB this week after graduation from our RE. She's only been my OB for about three years because I had to unexpectedly switch due to an incident that happened with my previous. She's a very good doctor who many people I know use and is very kind. The last time she saw… Continue reading OB Appointment and the diagram of a cervix
Strawberries. Kumquats. Prunes. Apparently, the babies are the size of all three this week. They've graduated from embryos to fetuses just as I've graduated from my RE to my OB. As I gave a pantless hug to everyone yesterday, I was overcome with emotion. It's hard to believe. 6 rounds of clomid. 3 rounds of… Continue reading Fruit I never knew was the same size.
Yesterday, we had our 8wk ultrasound to check in on our little guys. According to various apps, they're the size of either kidney beans or raspberries. I'm finding it disconcerting that they're compared to food constantly, but I also am having trouble thinking of alternatives. Perhaps a small pebble? A stack of seven nickels? 300… Continue reading Krasbeans and other units of measurement
