Baby Update

I have great news.  Today I had another ultrasound to check on the babies.  They BOTH had very healthy heart rates around 180!  And apparently there was something "wrong" with baby b's yolk sack last time (which I didn't know about or I would have been freaking out even more than I was) but everything looked perfect today and the doctor was very encouraged.  He said, "it's an answer to your prayers."  He was right.  And I know a lot of you prayed for us and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  Obviously it's still early (9 weeks), but things are looking great!

Big News

I honestly think anything in life can relate to a Friends episode... so remember that Friends episode when Monica and Chandler go to the hospital to get their baby and it turns out to be twins?  Remember how the birth mother says, "they talked about two heartbeats, I just thought they were talking about mine and the baby's," (or something like that)?

Well, to preface the rest of this, after a long time of trying and finally a low dose of Clomid, we are going to have another baby!  Yay!  I'm seven weeks along.  I know it is super early to tell everyone, but if something happens I would probably blog about it anyway so I'm just going to let the cat out of the bag.

We went in for our first ultrasound today to make sure there was a heartbeat.  There was.  In fact, there were two heartbeats and that DOESN'T include mine!

(not my ultrasound picture, but similar)

I don't feel great physically.  I would rather lie in bed all day than do anything, hence the reason I have not posted anything on my blog or done any projects in forever.  

Baby A's heart rate was normal at 132bpm but Baby B's heart rate was low at 109bpm.  The doctor said there is an 85% chance that they will both make it to 12 weeks but he is a little worried about baby B, which obviously makes me nervous.  There is nothing I can do though so we'll wait and go back to check on them in a week and a half.  

So there it is.  Our big news.  Thanks to everyone who sent fertility vibes and prayers our way.  Now if the babies could get some of those prayers I would really appreciate it!  Thank you!
