hi everyone, hope you're all doing well! Just wanted to share that we went for a meeting with our new obgyn, who was lovely and spent ages with us answering all our questions. The best part was of course seeing the babies on the u/s, and they were both moving for the first time! They were waving their little arms like crazy, it was really amazing
I'm kind of nervous about our next scan, which is the nucchal translucency scan (measures neck width on the babies) with a perinatologist to check for the possibility of Downs. Really not something I want to think about, but I guess its better than not knowing. Is anyone else doing this scan? Its optional, and you can instead just have bloodwork done, but my insurance covers it, and its supposed to be more sensitive, so I'm going ahead with it.
We also went to a meeting of a twins group in our area - all expectant twin parents, chaired by a mother of twins. It was pretty interesting, we picked up some tips on what equipment we might want to consider and stuff. Everyone else there was much further along than me, so I got to see just how big I can expect to get later on (big!). The chair kind of depressed me though, she kept on emphasizing how little sleep we'd get in the first couple months, she made it sound like literally NO sleep, and she kept on coming back to it over and over again...
I *know* I'm not going to sleep much, but theres trying to create realistic expectations and then theres scaremongering. I don't need to spend the next 6 months worrying about how little sleep I'm going to get! Anyone else been getting negative reactions from family or friends that they've told?
