Yesterday I became convinced that I wasn't pregnant anymore. My boobs didn't hurt, I wasn't nauseated, I wasn't hungry, and I wasn't tired. A called the clinic this morning and asked them if they would do a quick blood draw to make me feel better. My veins are notoriously hard to stick, so when I arrived the nurse said, "Why don't we just do an ultrasound instead?" Of course I agreed...I would never turn down an opportunity to see my little baby!
After looking around for a few seconds, the doctor pointed out the gestational sac, and could even point out the yolk sac today. I was so relieved. Then he moved the wand a bit and pointed out our SECOND gestational sac. This one was a little harder to make out, but with a little maneuvering he was about to point out the yolk sac for that one as well! That's right, Bit and Bitty are both still hanging in there! I'm holding pictures of my two babies, and I could not be more ecstatic. I feel like I've won the lottery, only this is much better.
One slightly concerning thing came up at the appointment. I had fluid in my uterus. The doctor said this wasn't exactly "normal" but it also wasn't too concerning for now. Hopefully it will get reabsorbed and not cause any issues. Anyone have any experience with this?
So there you have it, pregnant with twins at 5 weeks 2 days, and not a symptom in sight. I guess that just proves the point that you should never read too much into symptoms, or lack thereof.
