Hello Hello my friends! I hope this update finds you all well. As of today i am 11 wks 4 days pregnant, and the babies are doing absolutely fantastic. They are growing 1 week ahead and their little heartbeats are ranging from 167-171. Today I went in for my last monitoring appointment and the babies were moving all over the place. Baby B was even doing flips and bouncing of the wall of the placenta! Baby A was very active too, but didn’t put on as much of a show as baby B did! ;) Dr.K’s office called and i get to stop all medications. :) YAY! No more suppositories or Estrogen pills! (i dropped the shots 2 wks ago). Next week i go for the 1st trimester screening and then after that I will just be seeing my OB every 4 weeks. For now I will leave you with this gorgeous ultrasound photo of the cutie pies!
I had blood work to confirm pregnancy on March 19th and it confirmed that i was indeed pregnant with a BIG HCG number of 1342. The Dr wanted me to have a 2nd blood test 48 hours later to see if numbers doubled accurately and they were 3352… More than doubled. :) NICELY! my 3rd and final Beta was 1 week later and that number was 27,876.. INDEED pregnant, and it’s going well. :)
So far i have bouts of nausea and i rarely vomit…usually a smell or taste sets me off… I can barely eat. I’ve been eating a few small meals a day to prevent vomiting. I never had this with my own.. Never ever sick..only had bouts of dizziness. I’m also extremely tired which is normal, and my face is breaking out w/ acne… ICK.
I have a Sonogram on Weds to see how many little beans are in there. :) Place your bets…. One, two, or three? I’ll update soon after..
If you have a facebook do you mind helping me? My Surrogacy agency is having a photo contest.. :) Could you like their page and vote for me please? i’m the only “Jessica” on there :)
