Hi Augustrain! Congratulations and welcome to the board! February or January...both are still very much "winter" so you are right where you belong. So if I am doing my math correctly, you are now right around 11 weeks. I am assuming in your first 2 u/s appointments things looked good. At this point, I would say you have every reason to begin enjoying this pregnancy. Trust me though, we ALL understand how you feel (and I can only imagine how a small frame and twins add to that). Still, do your best to enjoy it. How are you feeling otherwise? Any nausea or exhaustion? I had both and feel like I am finally turning a corner.
AFM- had my NT scan today and everything looked perfect. I mean everything! Little fingers and toes, brain, bones, tummy, heart, bladder, etc. The u/s scared me at first because now that the baby is getting bigger the heart is less visible. But it was there and beating away at a fast but healthy 167. Its hard to tell in the ticker, but we got one shot of the LO "waving" at us and the tech added text that says "Hi Mom and Dad". So cute! I can't believe its going to be another 7 weeks before I see my baby.
We asked about the gender because we could see a very clear line protruding between his/her legs. Tech says that they all protrude there at this age and that some studies say that girls protrude horizontally and boys protrude vertically. Based on that I would guess girl (it was as horizontal as it gets), but the tech said it was way too early to even guess. Any of you have any experience with that? How did it turn out?
UPDATE- disregard my question. Although if you are curious here is a great site for you expecting ladies to check out on the subject of early gender prediction. Turns out its wrong 50% of the time and only right about boys 14% of the time. Better odds at the casino!
Hope everyone is well. Any appointments coming up?
