First Ultrasound

Today we went in for our first ultrasound. I was SO nervous and anxious all morning and waiting not-so-patiently for our 1:30 appt. I started crying before I even had the dildo-cam action! DH was holding my hand and when the nurse inserted the dildo-cam right away she said, "I see the heartbeat". I started laughing and crying at the same time and DH got a huge grin on his face. Then she was looking around and said, "Yep, you have twins." I continued laughing and crying at the same time and DH was grinning from ear to ear and squeezing my hand. At one point she had to ask me to hold my breath so she could get a good read on their heartbeats:) Here are their stats:

Baby A: measured 6w3d, heartbeat 106
Baby B: measured 6w2d, heartbeat 104

I am 6w3d today so everything is looking good! They said the heartbeats are fabulous and right on track for the timing of this ultrasound. We have another RE appt in two weeks and then I have to call to schedule my first OB/GYN appt for three weeks from now. My RE said that my OB may want to see me before 9 weeks since we have twins. Since we are having twins we most likely will have them well before our January 29 due date.

All I can do is laugh and giggle. DH has had a smile on his face the entire day and is already talking about buying a bigger camper. I am still thinking realistically that this is so early and so much can go wrong, but today I am just love love loving this! :)
