Introducing...

Scooter & Skeeter (we think)!!!

So yesterday I was totally shocked when my nurse said I could schedule my first u/s appointment between 5-6 weeks. And even more shocked when she said there was an opening today, I was totally preparing to wait until at least next Monday when I would be 6 weeks. But I gladly took the early appointment because its been just killing me wondering how many babies were in there. My betas have been nice and high, and I had a dream this weekend where I saw two perfect sacs on an ultrasound screen. Well, it turns out my dreams just may have come true!!!

I literally was holding my breath the entire time, and she found one sac right away...and at that point I'm like okay its just one and I would obviously be thrilled with one baby. But then all the sudden she goes, okay this might be another one. She seemed very hesitant to commit to anything which I get, she can't go promising crazy infertile preggos there are x babies when they're are really y. But she did offer to get a pic showing them both, and put it in a super cute little folded frame which I will now be carrying with me everywhere I go!

Then we walked in for our consult with Dr. C and for some reason he makes me super nervous, which equals me being very awkward. Seriously, my hubby and best friends can attest that I can be THE most awkward person ever...fun for other people who laugh at my expense, but not for me when I start pitting out my shirt and turning red. Today I was so weird I managed to make hubby blush, which is a new accomplishment for me! But we walked in and he said something about the blue plate special, and putting two in and getting two out. To which I responded we only wanted one, which of course I meant we just wanted at least one to be in there and luckily recovered before hubby had to step in to clarify (since Dr. C has originally recommended putting in 1 and we were the ones who pushed for 2). He also said he figured it was two based on my betas.

I don't even remember all the other weird shit I said, but to sum it up at one point Dr. C said at least I wasn't the scary movie type of neurotic! I also asked him why the baby blobs were so far apart (something hubby assured me was just due to the magnifying of the u/s and begged me not to ask), and he said in real life they're more like a finger apart. Let's just say Dr. C is extremely low key (a bit much for my neurotic self), and pretty much told me I could go run on a treadmill for 30 min, have sex, jump on a trampoline, ride a horse, eat whatever I want (except the cheese thing) cramp or spot a little and it would be totally fine. Okay, I added the trampoline and horse but I mean he might as well have thrown it in. Little does this guy know I've been driving to work because I'm worried about walking to and from the train station, and even when I drive I'm super cautious about bumps in the road, and yes I asked him if I could bump the babies out!

After lunch I kept asking hubby if Dr. C really said there were 2 in there. Hubby was like weren't you in that consult too, and I was and I know he said 2 but I'm finding it so hard to believe, could we really be that lucky? And the u/s lady just kept saying it was so early and how things could change, so I think its just a way to protect myself before I go shouting twins from the rooftops. Well, only time will tell and for now I'm going to enjoy the thought that both Scooter & Skeeter could be growing in my tummy. Next u/s is set for Tuesday, May 18th and we should definitely be seeing some beating hearts!!!

Wow! Great news ! Scooter AND Skeeter! Yippee! And once again we are scheduled for our next appts on the same day! Hope the 18th comes really quickly! And so weird how one RE can be so chill (yours) and mine is so uptight (ie. NO sex for 3 MONTHS!!! and now bedrest! ) Enjoy your hubby twice as much for me!

Holy Crap!!! Just saw your post and I can't believe we got the same news today!! I can't believe it either - I was bracing myself for devastation at the U/S and came away with twins (for now). I'm excited to have someone on this journey with me. And my next U/S is the day before yours, so we're really in parallel here.

Congrats!!!

Littlest True Blue said...

Hey ! Thanks for the bedrest suggestion but unfortunatly my hubs and I are also Dexter ADDICTS and I've already watched all of the seasons! Dying for the next season to start in September! Is Lost worth getting into? I'm trying to find a good series to start up. I'm thinking Lost or 24 or Gossip Girl or something. Clearly you and I have the same taste in shows (ie. SATC and Dexter!!!) so let me know any other suggestions you have!

Chelle said...

Such fantastic news! I can't wait to see what the next u/s shows.

I totally know what you mean about being awkward. I sometimes get myself into those situations a little too easily too.

All that matter is you are most definitely 100% pregnant!

Wishing 4 One said...
