Yesterday, we had an appointment with our periontologist. At first, I didnt know what to expect. She explained how high-risk I am carrying multiples and will need to be checked every 2 weeks. Well, not the babies, but me. My cervix will need to be watched like a hawk to make sure my body can hold the extra weight of a 2nd baby. They want to get a measurement on it. Yesterday, they did say it was nice and long and thick! Very reassuring! No signs of distress! I knew I was always considered high-risk, but the doctor made it sound like I am being watched like a hawk. I am 100% ok with it! Going to doctors for constant reassurance is something I that I like.
I had an ultrasound to get measurements of the babies. It was a pretty lengthy scan! My tech was very good at teaching me all about scans and what to look for. She was very involved. It was a great experience. There was a flat screen TV hanging on the wall of what the scan showed so I can see everything. Her machine was very detailed and sharp. Everything looked so sharp!I just knew she would have a good guess on the genders. Things were appearing very clear! She had some great pics! The preliminary results are in!! We are having two little GIRLS!!!! I am on cloud 9!!! They appear healthy and brain, heart, and spine all appear perfect at this point!!That was what I was worried about! I always seem to drive to these scans thinking of everything that could go wrong!! Pat tells me I need to stop. Start expecting the best! ..He is right. I think it is just the maternal nature in me to always worry. Here are our 2 little princesses!!!
