Not a real post-

I finally got in touch with the MFM's office and we have an appointment scheduled for the 14th for a consultation and ultrasound. Then our next appointment will be on the 28th with my OB. Hopefully we can get more questions answered, figure out how our care will play out, and go from there.

I bought a doppler and it arrived today (I had passed my old one on to a friend). I managed to find one of the babies about halfway up to my belly button to the left, and on the opposite side I'm pretty sure I heard a placenta but did not find the second baby. I'm not worried, because I know they're still small and shifty. They have a nasty habit of hiding behind each other. Maybe I can find them both another time.

I shouldn't be surprised at how high my uterus is already, but at the same time wow it's no wonder I'm showing so much already. Between it being a second pregnancy and twins I guess that really pushed things out sooner.

13 weeks and 1 day today... still taking it one day at a time.

Congratulations - the first trimester is basically behind you.

So glad they are doing so well! Thoughts and prayers they keep growing, and don't worry about showing, just means they're growing ;-)

Yes, it's so close! Still nervous but it's a big step for sure!

Happy to hear that things are still going well. Thought about buying one of those Doppler too just to assuage my fears.

Rebecca, it can be nice but also a little frustrating! I couldn't find V with ours until 15wks, but think I found these two both tonight. It's really hit or miss, but it is nice to find them too.

Yay for 13 weeks!! I think they are just having a field day while they have the extra space. ;)

Glad all is going well! The Doppler is definitely an anxious preggo's bff, lol.
