A 3 year old..

Yesterdays appointment was amazing!! I decided to take Gavin with so Dr. K could see him again. He was an angel, babbling and snacking in his stroller the whole time. I talked with the nurse and filled out the necessary paperwork. I gave urine, got weighed and had my bp taken. It was a bit high and I told her I'm always nervous before an ultrasound. Dr. K came in and was so sweet. We talked a bit and then she said she was excited and we would skip right to the ultrasound. FINE BY ME!
Babies look awesome! They grew so much!! We sat and watched their hearts beat and waited for them to wiggle around. At one point, she had them both on the screen and they moved at the same time. I couldn't wipe the silly grin off my face. I am so crazy about these babies!! She said everything looked just perfect..the sacs were great, the 3rd sac has been absorbed, there is good space between them. It really couldn't have gone better! She mentioned that baby A would be our photogenic one and I agreed and told her that B is always hiding.

We had our third ultrasound today and all is well with the cupcakes. Baby A measured at 7 weeks 2 days and had a heartrate of 136 bpm. Baby B measured at 7 weeks exactly and had a heartrate of 144 bpm.
Now, here is the confusing part. There is a third sac. It was not present at my first scan, but was there last week. The first thing my tech noticed was that the third sac had grown since last time. Last week, she called it questionable sac and labeled it with a ?. Today, she labeled it sac C and said it measured at 5 weeks 2 days, but there is nothing inside it. She said she would know more by my next ultrasound. What the heck? We only transferred 2 embryos, so I thought 3 sacs was impossible. Apparently, an embryo can split inside one sac or a sac itself can split? And its measuring exactly 2 weeks behind. How is that possible?
In the picture below, you can see how baby A's sac is huge and B & C's would be much bigger if combined.

Today will always be one of the best days of my life. There are two tiny hearts beating inside my body right now. Words cant express the feeling of holding your breath until you see the flickers. Such sweet relief and joy! Babies are growing beautifully. We are madly in love!

It's Saturday night and I am dying to see my babies again. I can not wait for our ultrasound Monday. I can only hope they both grew appropriately and have heartbeats.
I feel like with two babies there is double the chance something can go wrong. Yet, I can totally see us with them in our arms this September.
I am feeling very pregnant every day. The exhaustion is overwhelming. Tom has been going above and beyond helping with the boys. I feel nauseous on and off throughout the day. I get a headache about every other day. No complaints here. Just so thankful.
Yesterday, Tom took the last physical for his dream job. He passed it and filled out some pre-employment papers. He took the written exam in December 2010 and has been going through other parts of testing since September 2012. He is finally done and passed everything! Now, we wait for a phone call with a start date. Between that and two healthy heartbeats, February has a chance to beat January out for best month ever.
