Pregnant after IF

Had my first OB appt. Friday

Hi ladies,

  I haven't been posting much because I have been too afraid of getting attached to these babies and then losing them,  I know it sounds ridiculous.  Let's face it, I'd be devastated no matter what, so I don't know why I'm trying to be so guarded this time around.  I'm trying to live by the mantra, today I am pregnant and happy.

So I had my first OB appt. friday. It went well. We saw the little peanuts and one was moving around so much. DH was like they can move???Stick out tongue  The OB laughed and said yes, they are babies. I'll be going once a month to him (aagghh-how will I ever make it monthly?).  I was just there 2 days ago and am already stressing how long it's gonna be till I can see the babies again.

I have my NT scan at 12 weeks.  He usually does them in the office but said because it's multiples he's sending me out to the hospital for all my scans.  He also said I'll be getting monthly sonos (yay for that!!!). He said it's precautionary and it's to make sure both babies are growing at the same rate.

I'm also getting pulled out of work at 26 weeks.  I was completely shocked!! He said he does this with all his multiple moms because the risk of pre-term of labor is very high.  His goal is to get me to 35-36 weeks and he said by doing this he's been very successful at delivering full term twins.  He's very thorough which I love.  It's just crazy because obviously I hadn't told work yet and wasn't planning to until August.  I'll have to change that now seeing as my last day will be September 1st.  He said he told me now so I have plenty of time to make arrangements and do whatever I need to.

 Anyway, I'm going to try to enjoy this as much as I can (even though I'm a nervous wreck) and will try to post more often.  Hope everyone is feeling well today!

    I'm glad it went well!  I also got sonos at almost every appointment, which was very nice to have and reassuring.  I have heard other OB's pulling twin moms out as early as 22 weeks, and while mine was not that conservative, I think that 26 weeks is a really good timeframe! 

    I worked full time until 29 weeks (office setting), and then part time until 31 weeks. At 31 weeks, my BP shot way up, so I was ordered to work from home and keep resting regularly.  Now I am off work completely, and very happy to be able to hang out and rest when I need to, get things done around the house, etc. without actually being on "bedrest".

    I can't tell you how happy I am for you!

    I'm so glad that your OB appointment went so well and that he will be taking very good care of you and your little ones :)

    Congratulations!!! 

    PS - Waiting four weeks between appointments does suck at the beginning, but it gets easier. I promise.
