We've got two! Two beautiful little heartbeats :)
Twin A's heartbeat (the one who wasn't quite there yet last week) was 117 bpm. Twin B's heartbeat was 128 bpm.
We actually got to hear them, which was amazing. They're so little and soft, but fast. It's amazing to think that's real- in this very moment it's really happening. I don't know what will happen tomorrow...but right now we have two little heartbeats. Keep growing luckies!
Now, my weak little infertile heart still has trouble...Dr. Z said that Twin B measured 6w1d. We were 6w4d yesterday and B was measuring 5w6d almost a week before that. I can't remember what he said about Twin A...I was too distracted by the heartbeat. Dr. Z said everything is perfectly fine and as long as they're within 1 week of where they're "supposed" to be it's all good. And 117 for Twin A seems a little low, but doc said it's fine. Like I said, my weak little infertile heart can't keep up. I still worry.
Have you heard that before? Is it ok to only grow that much in six days? Is 117 high enough for 6w4d?
The nausea definitely bit me hard this weekend...I asked Dr. Z what I could do since I was losing more weight and gagging everytime I ate anything. He told me:
1) try sniffing alcohol pads ... (??)
2) lemon drops (not the drink unfortunately...) ;)
3) here's a prescription for zo.fran
I took that magic little pill the second we picked it up from the pharmacy. It's like night and day! Now...I still feel nauseous, like I'm car sick. And I've got a headache like I'm dizzy. But I'm not on the verge of throwing up every five seconds. I didn't dry heave at all yesterday after I took it! I'll take that improvement any day!
Oh yeah...we graduated yesterday!!! Dr. Z's office said goodbye to us and we're off to a real OB. They literally said goodbye- the entire office came out and hugged both of us (including the pretty receptionist...I think B liked it... just kiddin b!). They clapped and begged us over and over to come back in with the belly and then with the babies! It was surreal and amazing. I actually cried a little bit. They all said that we've been through so much and we deserve this... I just can't believe it's happening. We've been through a lot in that office, that's for sure.
The pic that we got yesterday was pretty blurry unfortunately, but I'll try to post it later. They're so cute! And teeny! Apparently the luckies are almost the size of blueberries! hmmm...blueberries actually sound kinda good. Oh no! I don't have any! I think I need to run to the store- this NEVER happens!
