(Warning: Another all pregnancy post.)

I only have time for a quick post.  (Crazy busy at work these days.)

I had my OB appointment this morning, and the babies are both doing fine.  Was able to see them on my first abdominal ultrasound, and they were both moving around a lot.  (One did a flip while we were watching.)  They look more like tiny babies and less like embryos than they did last check.  The OB was able to check their heartbeats and said they looked fine.

I lost another pound--down 8 total since the morning of our transfer--and the doctor was mildly concerned.  Though she did agree that there is hope that my nausea will start to subside in the next few weeks.

My next step is having my NT scan in the next couple of weeks.  If all goes well with that, we will start telling more people about the pregnancy then.


  1. oooh sooo exciting!!

  2. Glad your pregnancy is going well and hope you are almost done with the morning sickness!

  3. I'm so glad to hear that your pregnancy is going so well. Isn't seeing the bouncing babies on the screen so amazing?

  4. Glad your OB appointment went well.

    Have you tried protein shakes as a way to gain wait?

  5. @Jem, I've tried a few protein shakes, and I can't stomach 'em right now. (The closest I get is adding a protein "boost" to a Jamba Juice smoothie.)

    I totally intend to drink protein shakes liberally once this nausea passes, though!

  6. Glad to see that babies are doing well! Eat as much of what you can stomach as possible. And, don't worry too much over weight gain/loss. As long as the babies are healthy and geowing as they are supposed to you are fine.

  7. How wonderful to see your sweet babies on the screen! Every milestone helps build your confidence. I hope the nausea subsides soon so you can really enjoy this experience!
