I was at the hospital on Friday to get my BP and protein checked.
Before the midwife (the hospital one, not my regular midwife) listened to the baby, she felt around to see where the heart was. She seemed pretty confused about the bumps. Then she made the comment everybody does when they see my big belly, and I assumed it was the usual joke:
"So they are 100% sure there is only one baby in there, right?
"LOL. Yeah...I show a lot."
"You had ultrasounds?
"Yes, 2 ultrasounds, at 11 and 20 weeks"--looking puzzled-- "Hmm... and they checked all around your belly?
"Actually no, they found the baby and kept the probe on that spot""Really? Hmm...." --shakes head--
What in the world!
I was not worried - it is just NOT possible I have more than one in here!!
But I was was left confused about her reaction, and wondering whether it is even possible for surprise twins to even happen in this day and age, despite ultrasounds.
Do you really have to move the probe away from one spot to make sure there is only one baby? Even at 20 weeks?
I am measuring 43 weeks, but I also measure ahead anyway.
And I feel movements everywhere and all the time, but it was the same with my last baby - an energetic little girl!
