I had an u/s last friday, and it went really well. The babies are growing so fast.
Baby A: 148 hb and 7 oz.
Baby B: 148 hb and 6 oz.
I had the u/s from the request of the IPs and really to prepare me for my amnio this friday. I met the doctor that will be doing the amnio (he was very sweet), and I was in the room where it will take place. I have been having much anxiety about it, so I guess the visit was to calm my nerves? No, it did not work! I am still soooo nervous! Two reasons: 1. Being stuck twice by a long needle (ive heard it hurts) and 2. finding out the results, and what that will entail for this pregnancy. I am glad we are doing the FISH test, because you get results in 2-3 days, rather than 1-2 weeks (that would be a killer). So, its happening this friday, and I am NERVOUS!!! I will try and post friday afternoon after I get home, I have to rest for 2 days after. The risks are: spotting, cramping, and miscarriage.
Other than me being really nervous about the amnio, everything else is going great! I finally started to feel a lot better last week! I can actually get out of the house and can EAT now! But the bad thing is a got my appetite back, plus a little more! I need to be careful, because ice cream has been my new BFF! (carmel kettle crunch, Blue Bell) The good thing is at my apt last week I only gained 3 lbs, and that was for a month. W00-hoo! I just know that will catch up with me soon, I usually gain in the 3rd trimester.
So, now for the big news...we found out the sex of the babies (we actually found out at our 12 week u/s, but I wanted to wait until the next one just to be 100% sure!)
The babies are...BOYS!!! My IPs are so excited about them being boys, and so am I (I am partial to boys, since I have 2).
I know in my last post I said I would post a picture of myself and I havnet done that yet! I will try and get one up soon, believe or not, I am really not that big. It takes me awhile to show when Im preggo. I thought I would show faster since its twins, but I guess not. Maybe that is why my back is killing me! I also have u/s pics from friday that I will get up in the next few days. I need to try and be better at this blogging thing, mainly because I want to remember every step of my surrogacy.
On a side note: My son started Kinder this week!!! It was very emotional for me, but we both got through it :) He had two great days so far, he is just really tired and needs an early bed time! And for me, I start school today! I am excited because with me not working or going to school I have been a bit bored! So school should take my mind off this pregnancy so much!
Thats it for today, I will be back on Friday!
