Sorry I have been a bit scarce. Work has been a little busier than usual. Guess I am feeling more up to doing things now so have taken on a few extra jobs.
Sounds like everyone is coming along very nicely
I had my 2nd appt with my OB which made me feel a little better about him. I think I was just too emotional at last visit and took everything more sensitively. Anyways, his matter is still casual and matter of fact. Must be like that with everyone. Can't say I've bonded with him but we've only had 2 visits. He's hoping we can make it to 37 weeks with twins but says the likelihood is 40% chance of coming earlier with multiples.
Had our 19 week scan and took my folks along. Mum cried when she saw the bubs on the screen. I am now being monitored by the best twin sonographer in Aust so he puts me at ease and is extremely reassuring. Wish I could have him for my OB
Kiana still has a small abdominal cyst that they are saying does not pose any concern at the moment but will need to be monitored. Unusual but has been seen before. Hoping it is just an ovarian cyst. It is not connected to any other organs and is smooth walled so they believe it is benign. Time will tell I guess. Our little boy Ayden (we changed the spelling!) is going great guns, measuring about 5 days ahead of Kiana and a little fatty at 256 grams, Kiana's weighing in at 240. So precious. They told me to expect the boy to press on bladder and the girl to poke my ribs in due time - FUN!!! Hmm....
Been feeling tiny air bubble flutters sometimes at night or after eating. Nothing significant although I am aware it's them. I'll be 20 weeks on Thursday. Had my doppler on yesterday and one of them actually kicked which made my stomach pulsate and pushed the doppler off! Was so exciting. Think they're trying to tell me something
Don't have another scan now for 5 weeks..Longest ever and that's only to monitor Kiana's cyst. No other abnormalities were found so we're pleased so far. Found out the best news today. My friend that I was telling you about that is 41 and on her 12th IVF attempt is pregnant - on her 12th try! She got pg on her 1st IVF but was given 1 in 2 chance of down syndrome from her nuchal which was confirmed on an amnio so she lost the baby at 14 weeks, sad sad story. Anyways she's currently 6 weeks along and we can't believe it. Made me so happy.
Well I'm feeling really good now and happy to be alive. Life is wonderful with my growing belly. I feel so blessed. I have shot 2 TV commercials since being pregnant and have got copies of both ads so that I can show the kids they were in my tummy while I was on air! Getting harder to hide the bump though - I've put on 8 kilos already and 4 inches all round. My BBs are 40" !!!!!!!!!! Had to buy a 16DD bra from a 12D HELP!!!!
Sorry for the long post... and that it's all about me. Just wanted to keep you all updated.
