We had our OB appointment on Wednesday, and I must admit the entire day was one of the best I had in a long time.
First was our appointment, two healthy little boys! The placenta previa is gone (and hopefully stays that way) and my cervix is still looking really good. The only problem is that they are both breach, but that is okay because they will most likely still move a lot. The only downside to that is Baby A (Patrick) is literally standing right on my bladder! The ultrasound tech said, “look, it’s cute, here’s your bladder and here are the feet!” LOL-I’ll show you cute! I had been wondering why I was having to go ALL the time because I was told it would let up in the second trimester but has only gotten worse, now I know why! We are so thankful that both babies appear to be very healthy and are weighing in at 7 oz each. Shockingly enough my right ovary is still 7cm as well. I can’t believe it hasn’t gone down yet but I can’t really tell anymore. There’s so much going on in there making me uncomfortable an ovary a few centimeters too big is nothing!
I must admit I was a bit disappointed for a minute that there is no little princess in there, especially since there was so much pressure from my husband’s side because the 4 current grandchildren are all boys and we are the last hope. (I guess we will just have to use some of those frozen embryos :P) But I can not be more happier than to have two healthy babies. We tried so hard and for so long to have a baby at all that these precious little cupcakes could not mean more, I love them so much already. It truly is amazing how I love someone I have never even met before. I’m already worrying about when they start driving! lol
After our appointment we went a bought an awesome Nikon camera/video camera in one. We had been researching them and it is also an early birthday present to me. 🙂 We are all set to take beautiful pictures and video of our two munchkins! Then we went to Babies R Us to start our first registry. How exciting! It was so much fun to watch how excited my husband was to help pick out everything (and even picked a few things he liked i.e. bib that says “if you think I’m cute you should see my dad”-hehe). Since Wednesday I have just been on a shopping spree; not too crazy but it’s hard not to. When I think of my baby boys it makes me just so happy and shopping for them while thinking of them makes me soooo happy. They are already the joy of my life.
