We’ve been traveling the past week so apologies for not having updated the blog sooner. While we were driving through Mexico, we got an update that the yolk was detected in the ultrasound and that was a good next step. It appeared a few days later than normal, but the fact that it appeared was a good thing.
We were glad to hear that all was well, but not thrilled that everything was showing up a few days later than normal.
Oh wait, it gets better.
So we’ve been waiting for the full report to come back with a picture of the ultrasound. At 6 a.m. this morning, we received an email from Dr. Samit that put this entire “a few days late” scenario into context.
I’m going to share the exact note with you so that you can get the same impact that we did reading it:
I think this will take you by surprise as it did us. You have TWINS.
Yes that is right.
There are two gestational sacs and heartbeat is present in both. However one sac appeared late and is smaller in size than the other one.
This is seen often in twin pregnancies, however as the pregnancy continues they will catch up with each other.
We still have to keep monitoring closely though. We will keep you abreast of the scene.
And that was our 6 a.m. note.
This, more than any other of the updates has really hit home and emotionally has gotten us excited. There is still a long road ahead though and we know that none of this is for sure and that we really can’t get too excited about any of this quite yet.
