Double Your Pleasure

Well, after all those borderline doubling betas ... it looks like we will be doubling our fun!

That's right, two sacs, two heartbeats. I'm in shock.

The betas were so lowish, and with the spotting last week -- I really thought there had been a vanishing twin. But it looks like it decided to stick around after all. The measurements for both are 3-4 days behind the 6w5d we are at, but the RE is not concerned. Heart rates were 112 and 117. They want me to return again in one week before stopping the PIO, then I'll be released to an OB (which I don't have).

I am still totally floored. Thrilled, excited and very scared. This means our move to LA will have to totally be re-thought. The logistics and the health insurance issues are scary. I know it will all get worked out, and in the end it will just mean spending more money -- but its a little daunting. I'm trying to push all that aside and just enjoy this moment. This amazing moment.

Resident Boy is in surgery and I haven't been able to talk to him yet. So I can't publish this or call my mom or anyone else until he calls! Aaahh! Okay, got the call, so now I can post. More info to follow soon.

Oh, I am SO excited for you!!!!! Wonderful, phenomenal heartbeats!

Remember, ultrasound dating is approximate and can be off as much as five days in either direction, so being "behind" by three days is no big deal at all.

You deserve this, girl!

Oh my gosh, Amy. When they do arrive (G*d willing), you should name them after two roller coasters.

Hoping they stick around.

Leah said...

YEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH! I jumped up from my desk and did the happy, happy, joy, joy dance around my office when I read this post.

I got so caught up in worrying about the spotting that I had forgotten the possibility of twins entirely. Yippee!!!!!!!!

I'm sorry that I'm getting annoying with my obnoxious CAPS and exclamation marks but I'm just so damned excited for you.

Aurelia said...

Ahhhhhh, this is amazing, totally cool, totally rocks!!!!

One question, are you going to get your progesterone levels checked, before totally going off PIO? You can also take progesterone suppositories if you don't want to take more PIO. Just a suggestion---I just know how precious this pregnancy is to you.

Welcome to the rollercoaster my dear.

Wow, two! Goodness. It's always such a shock for me when bloggers are pregnant with twins, so I really wonder how they must feel.

Late to reading this - but I'm SO happy for you, Amy! Congratulations!

(And I had to laugh at getting big news like this, and waiting until you can get ahold of Resident Boy to let him know -- I've been there! Not with news of twins. But still.)
