Introducing...

Our Twins! 

Baby B's sac is smaller, so I am remaining guarded until I go in next week and can see two heartbeats. The tech said she is very good at "calling" a good pregnancy and she labeled them A and B and said they look great. Baby A measured 5w1d and Baby B 4w6d, so just a small difference. Both had yolk sacs, which is the first indicator of a healthy pregnancy. I am hoping they both grow accordingly and have little beating hearts at my appointment next Monday. 

She also spotted some fluid, which could explain the bleeding. They said its normal in twin pregnancies and as long as it doesnt soak a pad, its okay.

Twins, twins, twins..OH MY GOODNESS!!

Lori B. said...

Yay!!!! The betas and spotting all were good indicators but nothing's better than actually seeing those two sacs on the screen. I believe our Baby B was slightly smaller at the first ultrasound with just a slightly slower heartbeat as well. All turned out fine and she's been my little chunky monkey ever since! Can't wait until next Monday now!! Congrats!

Becca said...

Congratulations Erin and family! I am a twin myself and feel so excited for you and your family!!! I wish you nothing but a healthy pregnancy with 2 precious bundles!!!! :) P.S. I think it is incredible how you hoped for 2 singular boy pregnancies, followed by a 3rd twin pregnancy. Hopefully, you will get those girls that you want :)

Congrats!!! So very happy for you guys! I've never commented but I've been following your blog since before you got pregnant with Gavin. I had my son on 2/20/12, so it was nice to have some comparison! Twins are so exciting! Got to admit I'm a little envious! I would love to be pregnant now and twins would just be the icing on the cake (or cupcake =) ) Praying you have a very happy and healthy pregnancy! Can't wait to follow this one too!!
