I am okay with one more but... [m/c ment]

I am perfectly happy to be pregnant.
Again: I am perfectly happy to be pregnant.
Edit: I am BEYOND happy to FINALLY be pregnant.

My OB called and said she finally had time to look at my last blood draw and u/s I had on Wednesday. She said my beta levels are wonderful, so wonderful in fact that there is a good chance I am carrying T W I N S.

Twins:either of two offspring born together: either of two people or animals born to the same mother at the same time.

Let me tell you a little something about me:
-When I was 16 I didnt want kids, I dreaded the very idea of having children.
-18 I got pregnant, had a miscarriage and to my surprise I was devestated.
-19 I got pregnant again [same guy] had a miscarriage. Decided then and there maybe kids just werent going to happen for me and made myself content with that.
-20 I got pregnant with my daughter Kaylee. I was very happy, loved my pregnancy and knew she would be my ONE AND ONLY.
-21 Got pregnant [kays dad again] Miscarried was again surprised at my devestation, talked with hubby and we agreed to have another it is our last shot after all. Two would be perfect. Tried and failed tried and failed; you know my story by now.

NOW: I am pregnant, happily pregnant. After trying and trying and trying, I got what I wanted. And I feel bad for dreading twins. Twins scare me. Raising two more, the same age, at the same time, yeah, my deffinition of terrified.

Now the OB said this was only her guess, and that she could be entirely wrong. I asked how sure, she said, I dont want to give you a number and end up being wrong. Da** you woman, I NEED to know.

So I still have to wait. Sit. And. Wait. Until July 6th. JULY 6TH!?

Rant over.

July 6th really!?!? They won't bump up an US to ease your mind/ prepare you? I have heard great stories about twins, so if you do end up in that boat I hope you're among the ones that get 2 great calm wonderbabies! But, as you say you would be very happy with ONE, I will send single baby vibes your way!

Their office wont see anyone until 10 weeks. Insanity if you ask me. But I just changed insurance, and hardly anyone around here takes it. Oh the frustration!

Hmm...Maybe PP has some u/s clinics around here I can go to.

I could get used to two...I think this is just a shock for me. I wasnt expecting or planning for two. I would love them either way, but just the shock of it woosh!

wow..July 6th is way too far away to wait for diagnosing multiples...
BUT that said there really isn't much of a correlation between betas and multiples. There's a girl on another board who had a beta of 6000 at 18 dpo. Single baby as far as they know. They've done a couple of u/s's and so far just one.

Check out www.betabase.com - they have some really good data on beta ranges for singles and multiples Smile

And don't feel bad for dreading twins!! Good lord I would be TERRIFIED. It's not exactly something you're prepared for unless you go through IVF and know there's an increased chance!

Pam- No, I was in such shock by the word I didnt ask, that or I just dont remember. Either is possible lol

Mel- Thanks! I am glad I am not the only one who would freak at the word lol It doesnt run in my family. It does in hubbys tho, but I read that the woman determines multiples. Thats for the beta link (: Kinda cooled me off a little

So as you can see I am having twins! Yes, I completely freaked at 1st as these babies will be 4 and 5 for us and our last! We have no history of twins in my family and this pregnancy really was not that much different then any other pregnancy I have jad so @ 12 wks when we saw 2 babies I was in SHOCK as I had NO clue! I will say that I had a MC in November and I truly feel that God has now blessed us with 2 in its place. I hope you get the answer you are looking for. As far as waiting until 7/6, I think I would contact the OB office on Monday and tell them that you have been having some spotting on and off all weekend.. bet they get you in for an earlier scan Dirol
Good luck and lots of sticky vibes!

Erin-you may just be the most brilliant woman ever lol (: haha Good thinking. Congrats on your final two btw! (:

I talked to hubby last night and he told me he would LOVE to have twins. He was so excited, like cheesy grin, giddy excited, which kinda got me excited. I am still in shock, but like I said, I could get used to the idea of two, specially knowing hubby wants them. (:

Oooooh!! I just realized that there were twin boys in Evie's swim class (I didn't realize it at first as I am not participating, just watching DH and Evie in the swim class. Found out by talking to their gma who was on the observation deck with me). Twins are soooooooooooo cute!! You may need extra help, but I am sure it will be totally awesome and double the joy!

I hope you have twins, that would be so sweet! Smile

Lurker...

So wait...is the twins comment based on betas or an u/s, too? You mentioned it but then said the doctor wouldn't see you until 10 weeks. Sorry, just making sure.

I have a set of twins, they are 17 now and an absolute joy. It is definitely an experience.

Don't get too nervous, worried or excited if she is just going by betas. Lots of women here have had sky high betas and a singleton. You can't really tell much from just a number. (I'm actually a bit surprised she left you hanging with such a prediction!)

If it is twins, you'll do great! And your DD will be a great big sister to them. Wink BTW, I read the latest blog entry and it made me cry. Good job, mamma!

Totally lurking here BUT...

I had some difficulty getting pregnant and was very surprised to find out that I was going to have twins - was a bit guilty about being worried/nervous/unsure about having them and TOTALLY didn't know how we would do it...

They are only a month old now, but I just wanted to tell you that all that worry was for nothing - they have been great! I'm tired, sure, but so is every new mom and it's nothing I can't handle.

Congratulations on your pregnancy and - single or double - you'll be FINE Smile

Sophia- Haha I think twins are adorable! I just dont know if I am the kind of mom that could handle twins! LOL I am sure I could over all I'd just need an ajustment period.

Christina-Beta and u/s. This office does things really weird. They are all very nice, but I am not a fan of being in limbo until 10 weeks. Kinda of ridiculous if you ask me.

Thanks for reading (: I cried after re-reading it, hubby thought something was wrong with me lol.

Brianne- Thanks for the advice and comfort! (: Congrats on your new babes!

A part of me would love twins and apart of me would be freaked out by the whole thing for the same reason. 2x's the everything growing up at the same time. IDK what I would do if I actually had twins.

My betas were high too early on and it was suspected twins (especially looking at betabase!) Luckily I only have 1 little baby growing inside me. Try not to freak out until you see the scan.

dying to know

I am dying to you did you get an earlier appt to see if you are having twins??

I am about 6 weeks prego and found out on May 29th. I have my 1st dr appt tomorrow which I am very excited and very nervous at the same time. See I had a missed mc in February and am scared to death there won't be a heartbeat again. I feel pretty good about this one where with the last one I had a feeling something did not feel right...SO I am praying pretty hard Smile

I had to read your posts b/c I have always wanted twins and my sister said she had a dream that I was having twins and then the next night it was a girl...So she is thinking twin girls! LOL!! I would be so giddy if that were true!! This is my fifth pregnancy. I have 3 healthy children (Isabella 7yrs, Isaiah 5yrs and Elijah 3yrs) and lost the last one.

Not yet! I called and asked for my latest blood draw info and if I would still need to go once a week. My doctor was BEYOND rude with me. I dont know if she was just having a bad day or what, but she wasnt the same 'type' of person I was expecting since our last phone conversations have been wonderful.

I am looking for a new practice that accpets my insurance now, since I feel the way I was treated was totally uncalled for.

If your dr is like that once already chances are she will just get worse. I'm sorry you had that experience. I would for sure find another provider. I hope you get answers soon though.
