Call from our favorite Dr ever.

Just got a call from Dr Landers! She was in just as much shock as us! She didn't know quite what to say about the twins!  She was laughing and joking - it was really quite funny!

She did say a couple important things though: 1) because I'm now high risk she has to refer me to an OB... which I had a hunch but was totally bummed about, she put in a call to a friend thats an OB to see if they'd be willing to co-manage the pregnancy with her - I would see each doctor every other appointment.

2) She said something that I apparently miss heard - Baby A's Heartbeat was 115 not 103 (measured 6 weeks 4 days) and Baby B was a few days behind with a heartbeat of 103. She seemed very slightly concerned about that (the 103 heartbeat not the measurment) and now I don't know if I should be concerned too... I guess I just assumed it was lower because baby B is measuring a little behind.

She said I would probably get more appointments and more ultrasounds throughout and may or may not end up needing a c-section at the end depending on babies' positions.  She doesn't forsee me having any trouble carrying two given how basic my previous pregnanies have been (besides gabriel's obvious diagnosis but that wasn't my body's fault). 

She's leaving my due date February 20th since they are measuring so close to that anyways.

Cautiously optimistic and hoping that both babies stick and we have 4 healthy functioning kidneys!

  1. Congratulations!!!!!!! Just so you don't freak out, sometimes a lower heartbeat has to do with gender. At least that was what my midwife told me when I was preg. Praying all goes well for you and yours!!!!
