Surf and Turf

that's what mr. has named the babies
and they are both fine!

they let me come in for an u/s yesterday and we saw both babies moving all around and both heartbeats were looking good. we even could see the arm and leg buds. (it was an external u/s and i was surprised at how big my uterus is! the babies were way up by my belly button. no wonder my pants won't button.)

Baby A was measuring 9w3d with a heartrate of 170
Baby B was measuring 9w1d with a heartrate of 172

I know i shouldn't have totally freaked out. After I saw the blood, I actually looked in the mirror at myself and said, "don't freak out". but as soon as i started talking to the nurse i lost it. i just thought about everything we've been through the last 2 years and i couldn't fathom dealing with any more pain and disappointment.

I felt a huge relief when we saw both heartbeats, and were reassured by the doctor that I probably just loosened a clot with all the puking/coughing/blowing my nose that's been happening since i've been sick. gross.

thank you, ladies, for all your support and kind words yesterday.

Oh yay! You must have posted this just after I checked this morning if there were any updates and there weren't yet. This is the best news, I'm so happy for you!!

I know from personal experience how scary bleeding during pg is. And, for me, it's never the no-big-deal light, brown spotting. It's always alarming, bright red more-than-spotting and that's not even counting the gushing episode. But this time I've worked really, really hard not to panic or overanalyze. I think I'm just a spotter, as many IVFers are.

One bit of advice I've heard recently - stay hydrated! It's a no-brainer for pregnant ladies, but it supposedly helps alot with spotting too.

I am so glad ti was nothing. So did you never do PIO?? I received the suppositories and wondered if I was going to be doing PIO. I didn't get any. I hope these meds turn out to be as successful for me as they were for you!!
