Today was our 12 week ultrasound and everything looked perfect! We have definitely passed a hurdle today as our chance of miscarriage drops dramatically and we are well past the point that we lost the twins. My doctor is so wonderful and told us again today that he feels great about everything. I had a small sub chorianic hemorrhage that was seen on the past two ultrasounds, and today the tech couldn't find it, so it looks like it's gone!!
Kevin and I were both amazed at how much the baby has grown in just two and a half weeks! It is measuring right at 12 weeks and the heartbeat was healthy and strong at 166 beats per minute. We once again were lucky enough to see it wiggle around on the screen which is so beautiful to me that I cry every time. Maybe that's the hormones...?
We of course prodded at the tech to see if she could give her best guess of the gender, but her response was 50/50. (thanks- we could have told ya that.) We are confident that they'll be able to tell for sure by my 18-20 week ultrasound. We're so eager to start buying things (ok, I am so eager to start buying things) and planning the nursery.
