I had the first appointment with the new OB today. Love her already! She explained her plan of care and answered any and all questions. Made up for the fact that I got in thirty minutes past my appointment time.
If for some reason, I'm still holding on to the babies at 37 weeks, she will induce before week 38. Mom's are much happier, and babies seem to do well. 37 weeks is the first week of September.
The nurse attempted to find two heartbeats by Doppler for at least five minutes without success. We headed over to the ultrasound machine and found the babies right next to each other, almost on top of each other! It was too funny. She couldn't tell for sure if they were head-to-head or head-to-feet. It was neat to see both heartbeats at the same time, right next to each other! These two sure like each other. You could hardly tell they were separated by their amniotic sacs.
I will need a level two ultrasound within the next two weeks. We will be able to find out the sex of the babies at this appointment, along with measurements of vital organs, bones, etc. Should be an exciting appointment for both Chad and myself. Not sure when this appointment is yet, but will hopefully find out soon.
My next OB appointment will be May 1st.
