Had my first official prenatal yesterday. It was such a relief to see someone face to face and for a birth professional to give me her opinion an what might be happening in my belly. (I was working with my family doc and consulting over the phone with my midwife, who is now out of state, while insurance was worked out.)
I've had some twin intuitive feelings for a while now, which only got stronger when my fundus popped up out of my pelvis at 9 weeks. I have had some funky hormone levels too. I have been feeling LOTS of movement for at least 2 weeks, daily in the last week. I'm only 14 weeks.
Turns out I'm measuring 4 weeks ahead and my dates are solid. We thought we might have picked up 2 heartbeats, but you can't be sure with a doppler. We had a strong one on my upper right side (the kicky place!) and thought we heard something waaaaay down in the lower left, but it was wiggly and kept moving away, I could feel the squirm! We also located the placenta up at the top, middle. 2 babies would explain feeling the super kicky movements and the more wormy, hamster feet movement this time around. My other two babies never had both types early on. One was kicky, the other squirmy.
Tuesday, we'll find out for sure with my first ever baby ultrasound!!!
DH and I are having lots of fun imagining what if. The name game just got a whole lot more fun, that's for sure. We lick Click and Clack as in the belly names, or maybe Molder and Sculley.
My poor DD. She is desperately hoping to not have another "little bother", she thinks having 2 would be the end of the world. Lucky for her I have strong girl feelings with just a hint of boy. My money is on twins being a girl and a boy.
