Went to the doctor today, for my 2nd visit, (14 weeks) which included an U/S, due to the fact I've had 2 cervical surgeries in the past.<br><br>
Got to the office, and it was WALL TO WALL people!! Turns out, they were running 1 to 1 1/2 hours behind. Brett wanted to leave immediately, but I talked him into staying.<br><br>
Went back to U/S, and the tech was kind of brusque/matter-of fact. She did a vaginal U/S (yuck), and told me my cervix looked a-OK. I asked her to take a peep at the baby, since we were already there .. she said, sure, no problem. I only glanced at the screen long enough to see the heartbeat. (I did not want the temptation of <i>TRYING</i> to guess the baby's sex)<br><br>
She then asked me ... "have you had this baby scanned before?" I said, "no", and she said .. "I'm getting ready to rock your world!" I started crying ... just KNEW what she was going to tell me!! She then proceeded to show us BOTH of the baby beans!!<br><a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/2092922930/" target="_blank">Our baby BEANS</a><br>
Babies were the same size, doing fine.<br><br>
We sat around the office, waiting then to see the OB, crying/laughing/stressing about everything we have to get done!! The OB checked me over, gave me the "twins talk" .... She measured my fundus today, and I'm measuring at 20 weeks!!<br>
--more folate/calcium<br>
-- plenty of rest<br>
-- 2800 calories a day .... who in the heck can eat that!!!!<br>
-- recommended weaning DD#2 .. SIGH. Not looking forward to this ...<br>
-- "you might consider cutting back at work" .... since I am an ER nurse. I'm not sure who will pay my bills if I do that, however!!<br><br>
So .... I'm spazzing a bit. I am without a doubt, blessed beyond my wildest dreams ..... and scared out of my wits!!<br>
I just have to take a deep breath ... one thing at a time!!!

Congrats!<br><br>
2800 calories is hard, I know but it can be done. Think extra protein and dairy. My OB had suggested upping my milk to whole and avoiding "low fat" or "low cal" foods. When I got to 20 weeks with my twins, I had gained 20 pounds.

Wow how exciting for you guys!!! I was eating 2800 calories/day when I was doing triathlons too - it's a lot of food. I ended up bringing 2 sandwiches for lunch each day instead of one. Whole millk and whole milk yogurt instead of lowfat. Put some extra peanut butter on your crackers. Have an egg AND a bowl of cereal for breakfast. And don't worry about that milkshake that you indulge in <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> It's actually kind of fun - especially around the holidays when there's so much good food to be had. Congrats on your twins!!
