@kewpie80 : Congrats! I am so happy to hear your news.
@Xerxella : I don't know a lot about varying heart beats so this may sound stupid, but is it possible one has a slower rate because it's a boy and the faster one is a girl? Either way, I hope you are reassured by your next appointment.
@NaturallyMo : Hi! Happy to hear your baby is doing well.

@Xerxella
When is your next appointment? Hugs to you. I'm hoping all is well with both babies and just a slower heart rate. I'm sorry though, it is very stressful when things aren't perfect with our little beans.

Xerxella, I hope everything looks perfect next time and this is just one of those scares that turn out to be nothing. Hooray that they're both measuring perfectly!

X - I'm glad Dr. Google had something reassuring to say for once! Hoping you get a nice fast heartbeat tomorrow! (And maybe, if you're VERY good, some prenatal vitamin samples! )

@kewpie80 congrats! You've got this twin thing down, right?
@Xerxella I'm so sorry things weren't perfect and there is (some) cause it worry, but glad your doc and Dr. Google think it could all be okay. They'll do an ultrasound tomorrow, right? Can they even easily use the doppler with twins? Seems like it would be a challenge.

Anyone else have any important appointments coming soon?

Thursday is getting closer, two more sleeps. I need to call and schedule an OB appointment, as I'll be discharged from the clinic after this. I will be out of town starting July 5 for a week. I'll be 9 weeks when I get back. I'm curious when the OB is going to want to schedule my first appointment and ultrasound. I have no idea how many scans they're going to want to do, I guess it all depends on how things go.

I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow. I'm taking DS with me since he asked if he could "go with me to see the baby in my belly". I hate that DH can't get off work to make it. He hasn't made a single appointment yet and I feel some kind of way about that I understand that its not his fault but I told him about it a month ago and he was supposed to take off before anyone else did.

I'm battling a stuffy nose right now, so is DS. I don't know if its allergy related or just the pregnancy stuff nose but I'm over it and it seems like it wants to stick around for a bit. I managed to go to bed last night about 9:45 and woke up 4 times to pee but I feel well rested.

My appointment isn't until 2 pm central time, so it'll be awhile. I just felt a little movement after lunch, so that makes me feel a little better. Thanks for the stalk all. I'll update when I know something.

Getting closer to 2...And to Thursday, for boots.

X - Did they tell you anything about placenta position yesterday? Could that explain the spotting?

I don't know about placental position. They're stacked like bunk beds, but I just don't know.

So the OB didn't have an u/s. She used the Doppler and thought she heard 2 heartbeats in the 120's and 130's.

No matter how hard I tried I just couldn't get her to be concerned about it. So far, no doc has been concerned about it.

I guess in the end there's nothing that can be done at this point anyways. We'll just have to wait til Dec/Jan and see who if anybody comes out. (Sorta kidding here).

I do have another appointment to do the NT screening for next Thursday. I guess they'll get another data point then.

I'm going to go take a nap. Wake me up when the movie is over and tell me how it ends.

Hey, they are both still alive and kicking for now. That's something. My limited Googling says anything between 120 and 180 is normal at this point. I'm sorry I can't give you a spoiler for December/January. Thinking good thoughts, though.

AFM, I had my pubic bone adjusted today at the chiropractor. Owwwww. She wasn't lying when she said it would sting. So far, it seems to help. I'll really put it to the test when I lay down in a few minutes.

@Xerxella
That is so freaking frustrating. I'm sorry you did not get a more definitive answer. I'm with monkeyscience, both heartbeats seem to be in normal range. Sorry this is being difficult.
@monkeyscience
Ouch! That sounds painful. I want to know if it works okay?
Afm
Yes, I've been vacationing in a little hippy town in oregon. My birthday was today and most of the time I just felt sick. I'm very frustrated and grouchy. I plan on getting some homeopathic medicine in the morning to see if it helps. This woman out of the blue at the park today told me it help her so much when she had morning sickness. I swear to you this woman just came out of the blue and told me this. I think it was the universe trying to give me info right? Or I'm just freakin crazy...... Which I may be a t this point. I'm already ready for first trimester to be over and I'm only 8 weeks! I'm just a baby and need to whine. Thanks for reading.

Tracy - definitely wasn't fun, but it did work! No pubic bone pain since then, except maybe a little soreness on the spot she adjusted.

Boots - I can't remember when your appointment is (if you told us), but hoping to hear from you soon.

Mo - dh has only made it a couple of times this pregnancy. I don't mind as much this pregnancy. I made him come to almost every appointment last time, though! I won't do an ultrasound without him. Unfortunately, he spent most of the anatomy scan wrestling our toddler. :P

Anyone doing anything fun for the Fourth tomorrow?

I had that done a few times during my last pregnancy. It made a world of difference for me and meant I could still be up and running errands the day i delivered, carrying two 6+ pound babies. I'm a big advocate for chiropractic support during pregnancy. (as long as you go to someone who specializes in it)

@Xerxella - I'm so sorry they weren't more supportive. How frustrating. With my first twins, they got out the portable u/s machine every appt cause they couldn't be sure they caught both HBs with just a doppler. I'm really hoping my next OB is the same.

Two heartbeats! Baby A is measuring 7w5d. Baby B is measuring 7w1d. Both heartbeats were 157.(do you think she messed up or is that possible?)

Yay, Boots! I think it's possible to be the same - especially since they're really just averaging over the time they hear them.

Come on, twinsies - all 4 sets of you - grow, grow, grow!!

Just got home from my appt and everything looks good. Baby has a great heartrate in the high 150s. We didn't do an ultrasound this time so I go back in two and half weeks for a full scan. Hopefully we find out the sex.

I tell you, there is something so relieving about hearing that little heartbeat each time.

Laggie. She's actually due ahead of me. She isn't super active on this thread, but pops in occasionally. She did IVF with donor eggs in Greece, I think in December?

Great news, Mo. Even when I felt my son moving all the time, my heart still stopped for a few seconds every appointment for the time between them turning on the Doppler and finding the heartbeat.

Hey ladies just a quick update. Had our heartbeat scan this morning and everything looks great still. Baby is actually measuring 3 days ahead at 6 weeks 6 days. The heartbeat was 120. it was amazing to see the flicker and get to hear it. I have been pretty miserable today. I actually had such bad stomach cramps this morning that I thought I was miscarrying. No blood.. Just a lot of gas and stomach upset.

Oh my, I was drinking almost a gallon of water a day and now it makes my stomach sick. I just switched to Gatorade.. Ugh but at least I'm hydrating. I hope the diarrhea goes away. You think it is from the heavy food?

I'm trying to drink a lot of water, too. I think I got dehydrated with all the festivities yesterday. I got a killer leg cramp that would.not.die. this morning. Like released and cramped back up two or three times, without me trying to stretch it or anything.

Glad things are looking good, Alive!
