As our doc was away for our week 6 appointment, he wanted us to have the scan on Sunday once he has returned. However, when we arrived early at the clinic old-lady-nurse asked us if we preferred to have it on this visit…. Erm, no brainer really! First scan is usually done on week 6… A in particular wanted to know whether we had one or two beans.
You’ll be happy to hear that my severe nausea seems to have passed, so it only lasted about 5 days. I am now just feeling occasionally queasy. However, a very strange development is that I am being plagued by random attacks of severe hunger, even after eating. I feel as though I haven’t eaten all day. Is that common?
We had to wait quite a long time; had we just been having the jab as planned we could have been in and out by 4.30. As it was though the clinic was open, the doctors were not yet onsite.
We were called in for the sonogram at about 5.30, and as soon as she had put it in she said “Twins.”
You can see the two placental sacs very clearly here.
Then we heard the first heartbeat. What a feeling. For those of you still hanging on for your BFPs- it is worth it. Keep trying! I pray every day that you will get to experience this soon.
The rates of both heartbeats were normal and she said both my ovaries look healthy too.
Here is a last shot of one of the beans where the actual baby can be clearly seen:
Good luck everyone with procedures coming up! Xxxx
