Hi Ladies - thought I would join you over here I had my 12 week ultrasound today and as far as I can tell it went ok?!? The techs at this clinic are notoriously tight lipped and I don't have my follow up appointment until next wednesday where my stand-in RE will let me know if everything is ok. Got to see some stills of the baby and head the heartbeat (166bpm). The tech said a few times 'everything looks good'...but then asked when I would be seeing my RE next. Ugh. Harmless? Maybe. But now has me questioning...
Yaena - sorry to hear the nausea came back with a vengence! I was just saying to DH that I finally felt like my extreme fatigue and pukey-ness had lessened, but boy did it wallop me today! I've only thrown up several times in this pregnancy...and this morning was by far the worst. I can't believe how our cycle group has all but disappeared. It seemed like there were so many BFPs - and now we're down to just you and me?
Synchro - congrats on surprise twins!!! So cool. You're gonna be one busy momma! I forget, but do you have Dr. Virro? Good chance he'll deliver you if you stay with MFC - he only does multiples, c-sections, and high risk births (and the occasional shift) from what I understand. He came to visit me the morning after I had my daughter which was nice (although I was butt naked having just gotten out of the shower - we literally had a conversation in the bathroom while I was wearing my Depends!)
Canadamommy - nice to see you again!
Elation - nice to meet you!
We've told some of our friends that we're expecting - mostly because they knew we were going into a cycle and/or the busted me not drinking at Christmas and/or they wanted to go down south and I'm freaked out about Zika (from our clinic). Haven't told our parents. I think we'll tell our girls tonight in the hopes that they'll stop jumping on my stomach every few minutes. Our big decision is whether or not I take maternity leave or simply take a few weeks off (4-6) hire a nanny & keep working. I have a job that I love, is work from home, pays really well, is amazingly flexible and I would never get back (at least the way it is now) if I took a year off. DH and I are weighing pros and cons - it's a big decision as I would like nothing more than to take a year and snuggle my last baby
