A Funny Thing Happened at the Doctor's Today

edited November -1 in Pregnancy and Babies
Well, I have been waiting to go for my ultrasound to make sure there is a very nice little bean in there and today was the day. My partner was excited and I was a big old nervous ninny. I couldn't grasp that we were really pregnant and there was a baby in there.

The doctor whipped out the ultrasound wand, got it in there, and immediately hung her head down and covered her face with her hands.

My partner startled -- was something wrong?

I looked at the blank screen and said, "There's two of them, isn't there?"

Yeah, that's right. You do all this work and go through IVF and put back in one embryo and you know what it decides to do? SPLIT!

We are the proud new parents of Baby A and Baby B. Identical twins. Lovely strong heartbeats, by the way, and measuring very well.

I should have known something was up with the doubling times of my betas, but I can honestly say, I was never expecting this. :D
