1st Ultrasound

Today was our first ultrasound. We were ecstatic to see what we already believed would be there... TWINS!

During the last few weeks, we both had strong feelings that we were pregnant with twins. We would catch ourselves referring to the baby as "the babies". We would be unbelievably grateful and over the moon with one baby, but we couldn't shake the feeling there would be two.

Sure enough, we learned quite quickly there were 2 sacks with two embryos inside.

When we focused in on Baby A, we noticed he/she was a little small. The measurements (6w1d) were 2 days behind where they should have been (6w3d). Additionally, we were unable to see a heartbeat. This was disappointing to say the least.

Next we looked at Baby B. This baby was measuring right on schedule (6w3d) and had a nice strong heartbeat of about 135.

So now we wait for a week and go back. The babies will be bigger, and the heartbeats clearer. It is then we'll see if Baby A has grown and if his/her heart is beating. I love both our babies already and am hopeful they'll both be a part of our family here on earth.

Here are babies' first photos:


Baby A: Our Fighter

Baby B: Right on Schedule

Because of this recent development, we are waiting another week to tell people. We want to have more definite news. Until then, the secret continues...
