16 Weeks Along! Fetal Echo Twist! Woah Is Me!
16 Weeks..Time Is Moving FAST!!
16 weeks and counting! I knew twin pregnancy is different and a bit harder, but wow, how much more eventful then my singleton ones, might it be? Seems like never a dull moment, and I don’t mean that in a good way, I mean, CRAZY, not so great stuff involved. I had the fetal echo. I didn’t expect anything, but IF anything, I’d have expected it on the baby with the higher NT measurement, which the Dr said it could be the heart, right? WRONG! the baby w/ the normal scan, the deemed healthy one, baby B, has a bright spot on the heart, which may be nothing, or may mean something, but all I can say, is with the 1 marker on both babies, I’m extremely relieved I had the CVS test done, because it would have been recommend anyhow. I’m just scared, because even if it’s true that these two things can mean nothing, and my CVS was so encouraging, etc, it still feels like these babies, each now have a strike against them, and I am just wondering now..WHAT NEXT?
This is all very stressful as is, and hard enough just being pregnant with two, and trying to plan out our futures with 2 more babies, how we’ll make it work, how well support them, & cope, but then you add this stress and it’s like come on. even two healthy babies will be very hard, i can’t imagine anything less, so prayers our way, and our babies way please. i hope all turns out well. Everything else so far, on the echo, looked great. The test lasted forever and was somewhat limited at my gestation, so i go back in a few more weeks, but i’m glad i did it. i have my regular scan and appt today, so i guess i can talk to the ob officially about this now, see what he has to say. Still feeling blah, sickly, nauseous, i have a cold now which doesn’t help, my skin is an oily pimply mess, which isn’t fun, Some dizziness, and i had some painful braxton hicks yesterday, which i would have went in over if i didn’t have my appt today, but so far, so good, i don’t wanna get all crazy like i did last time, in labor and delivery all the time. two for the price of one is gonna be scarey though, so i’m sure i’ll have those episodes again.
I’m curious to how much further along my uterus is. I’d say it feels about 20 weeks, maybe 21. I’ll ask later. definitely seems to be at the belly button to me. I’ll share my pic for this week. I have a lot of bloat and ibs, as I have gone up and down, so I don’t know how accurate this one may be. welp I will be back.
Oh and I have felt some tiny whiney little movements on the sides in there. ever so faint, and sporadic, not very often, but I know what they are. Those really started at 14 weeks and 4 days or so, but became a bit more since. Still waiting for something…BAM, if you know what I mean,, but I have felt movement, so I wanna report that, since b4 the 15th week, though I am certain, I felt them under the ultrasound probe at 11 and 12 weeks. they were digging it into me, and the twins said ‘Hey cut that out’. New name on the list..Sydney perhaps?? I don’t know, just throwing it out there. Mikayla loves it though, but not many she doesn’t like. She still only knows bout one, only because hubby dear, hasn’t even told his mom yet, and she will spill the beans. I told him to tell ages ago, but he said she might have a stroke (me to), no but seriously, it’s an extra grand baby, go tell her, she might be in shock but be excited to. it’s about time at 4 months right? Mikayla will be at the ultrasound today, so if she knows, then mother in law will finally to. We shall see.
