We had our "8 week" ultrasound today with our RE. We are technically 7w6d today, we aren't 8 weeks until tomorrow, but it's close enough=).
So the update - the babies are doing great! Both measuring right on target. Their heartbeats today were 158 bpm (baby A) and 162 bpm (baby B). It was awesome to hear their little hearts beating again. It really is music to a mother's ears!
Now we don't have any more appointments for two full weeks! They are still drawing my levels, and today my levels were good! My Hcg level was 249,000 (holy cow no wonder I feel awful!), my estrogen level was 3500, and my progesterone was 78. All GREAT! So great in fact that the RE said I can stop using the estrogen patch, and can go down to one shot of PIO (progesterone in oil) per day! My OB wants me to stay on the PIO until at least 12 weeks, so he doesn't think I should reduce yet, but he said it is up to me if I want to. Oh the decisions!
Oh, and I need to have Si take another picture of me. I suspect I am still losing weight, but my tummy is growing away! Maybe I will save that picture for later in the week. For tonight, I will leave you with the ultrasound picture from today. They still don't look like babies. . .they looked like gummy bears at the time the ultrasound was actually going on, but in the picture the babies kind of look like frogs! HA!
Anyway, enjoy! Hope you all have a wonderfully blessed week!
