It was amazing to see their heartbeats and to see how much they've grown since last week (from a lentil bean to a blueberry for size reference, per my weekly Baby Center update - although I guess B is still closer to a lentil bean). In the picture of Baby A, what looks like a head is actually the yolk sac and what you're mostly seeing in B's pic is the yolk sac. However, if you look closely at A, you can kind of make out the head versus the tail, which is pretty neat. We go back next Thursday to take another look. I don't mind the weekly appointments... small milestones and a chance to see them again.
Outside of all that, things are good. I am feeling just fine, besides some restless sleep thanks to hormones. But, given I haven't had any nausea, sheer exhaustion, food aversions, etc., I guess it's good to have something telling me that my body is in fact supporting a pregnancy, besides swollen breasts and frequent bathroom visits. :) I also made my first regular OB appointment, which will be September 4 at 1:30. We'll have yet again another ultrasound and meet with the doctor(s). And, I believe both of our babies will be doing just fine! But, if not, we'll deal with whatever comes... that's all we can do. Until then, I am thanking God and rejoicing that we got to see two heartbeats today!
