While watching the oscars last night, I suddenly started spotting pink/light brown. The doctor assured me that it was probably nothing, but I was terrified. We went to the office at 9:00 this morning, and thankfully the twins looked great. Both measuring at 8 weeks 5 days with heart rates of 180 and 169. I'm still spotting a little, though, so still feeling anxious.
In an effort to reassure me, the doctor said that things were progressing normally. He said something to the effect of "normal pregnancies progress normally, and normal pregnancies are much more likely to continue to be normal than for something to go wrong." Am I ever going to feel normal? Is there going to be a day when suddenly I believe that this is a normal pregnancy? I am beyond grateful to be pregnant, but am looking forward to the day when things feel a little more real.
