Another good appointment.

I've been trying to avoid "researching" on the internet.  I'm trying to just let myself hear that my RE is saying everything is perfect and accept it.

Today was another perfect appointment.  The twins have grown.  There at the point now where they are shaped like babies.  They were moving around.  There is no sign of blood pockets.  My cervix is over 4cm.

Before she measured the babies my RE said they should be about 25mm.  That now it's about growing organs and body parts and not so much the doubling their length like the past few weeks.

I didn't know.  I hadn't done my research.  I just accepted it.  The twinks are measuring 26.4 and 26.6.   Perfect.

So I went home and tried to just be happy and just accept what my RE said.  But I couldn't.  There's a great website where you type in the crown rump length and it gives you the age of the embryo.

I didn't want to do it.  It scared me.  I could just be happy or I could find out the babies are a little small and start worrying.   Why was I doing this?

Of course I did it.  I have zero willpower.   I typed in 26.4.  It came back 9w3d.  A day older than the babes!  What a relief!

So until my next u/s a week from Thursday (when I graduate) I will try to just be happy.

Fingers crossed.

  1. So glad you had another great appointment! Have they given you any new u/s pics? Babes look so funny at this stage, must be neat to see two of them moving around :)
