Rikirees- Thats great that you had a good appointment. Sounds like your Dr. is really on top of things for you and doing everything to assure you have healthy babies and a healthy mom! I was just telling my DH about your story today so I am happy to hear things are going well. (My Dr. said today that he thought our babies might be identical instead of the fraternal that we were sure of, hence where the egg-splitting conversation and your story came up)
AFM-Lonnnnnnng week!! Possibly the longest soo far... I received the results from my second trimester screening last Monday and they were abnormal. Showed a high risk for down syndrome
. So my OB refers me to a High Risk specialist and pretty much says nothing else. After a long week of restless night and more tears than I would of liked to have shed I had my appt. today with the high risk dr. My u/s showed two healthy babies and no signs of downs. Although this is not fool proof method of detection I declined the amnio cause I'm having my babies regardless and know in my heart they are perfect! So once we finally breathe for the first time in a week, the Dr. asked me if anyone has told me for sure that both embryo's implanted because it looks like they might be identicals. My OB has asked me this as well, but I was like umm obviously they did. Thinking back, my RE never said. It was just, "oh, your pregnant with twins, go get an OB, bye". So, we were like well lets check the genders and see if that helps and it didn't as we now know we are having two little boys
I am soo happy all went well for me today and look forward to going back to the high risk Dr. in a month to get this fraternal vs. identical thing figured out.
I hope everyone is enjoying their pregnancies and that all the babies are growing happy and healthy!!
