The big news?? We're expecting again!! We found out in mid-October but decided that we wanted to wait and see how things went before we shared the news widely. Then we learned more. We're having twins!!
My high risk category just went up again.
Turns out we have identical twins. They share a placenta but thankfully are in separate sacs. The variations on twins are way more complicated than I ever imagined. Not that I ever gave it much thought. The idea that I may one day have twins has probably never entered my mind!
Thankfully, the pregnancy is going smoothly. I'm nervous going into every appointment (understandably) but so far we've received nothing but good news on the progress of these two babies. I'm currently at 15 weeks. I'm being watched carefully with ultrasounds every two weeks and appointments with my regular OB also every two weeks starting after my next appointment (which is about 3 weeks away currently).
I'll post more later about how things have gone so far. I did keep a written journal for a little while from about the time we found out until just after Thanksgiving. So I may post a few select entries from that to give you a flavor of how things have been so far.
In the meantime, here are two pictures from today's ultrasound. Enjoy!!
