So I went to see the Nurse Practitioner for my 18w belly check. I wasn't particularly fond of her. She was old, had googly eyes, and [again], kept forgetting that I am having twins, and kept talking about them as if they were one. My boyfriend told me to just remember that not everyone gets pregnant with twins. They are soooo used to seeing women with one baby.
She did the belly measuring with the tape measurer. She says normally they wait awhile, but where I am pregnant with 2, it was time for it. My uterus is measuring at 20w.
I have ONLY gained TWO pounds through this pregnancy so far! She said I should have gained like 13- 17 pounds by now.
She says everything is perfect.
I took my boyfriend's sister with me, cause I knew she'd love it, and I loved having her with me.
We got to hear the heartbeats, atleast one heartbeat for sure. The NP honestly said, "I really don't care about finding 2 heartbeats, just as long as we hear one". WOW! She tried looking for the one that sits back further on my left, and I am sure she got it. I heard 2 separate heartbeats, and she did too, but she didn't want to input the numbers into my chart.
I go for the wellness & gender sonogram in exactly ONE week!
My boyfriend's birthday was on Sunday, and his mom gave him the funniest card! It was a sock puppet, and he was opening a gift, and it says, "C'mon, please be socks!!" You open the card and there is a picture of a pair of socks and it says, "Yeah baby! Twins! Hope you get everything you want on your birthday" and then his mom wrote, "....and more". How fitting is that card!?! I can't stop laughing about it! She's really excited about having more grandbabies!
