    They were 162 & 167. Both are measuring right on target, but Baby B is already being a little trouble maker. They are hiding out in the back and more towards the bottom of my retroverted uterus, so it took a little bit to find them and there isn't a picture with both of them. Oh, well, better get used to it. I doubt they will both cooperate at the same time very often.

    Awesome! It's so strange to realize there are living babies inside you with heartbeats. I had an ultrasound last week and it was waving arms and legs at me.

    How amazing to see arms and legs moving! I'm going to miss the frequent u/s moving to an OB.

    It was amazing and I managed to get a decent cell phone video of it so I can watch it anytime. My first OB appointment was last week and he was great about the transition. At the end he sat down and said he's happy that everything looks good and he would normally see me in 4 weeks, but he knows I've been monitored more closely and he didn't want to stress me out. He said if I wanted to come back earlier he was fine with that, but I agreed to 4 weeks (then realized when I got home my appointment is in 3 weeks). Then on a whim he decided to do an ultrasound to check on the vanishing twin anyway. I feel like I'm in good hands, but I've seen him for years and always felt good about him.

    You might get referred to a high-risk OB that you'll see in addition to the regular OB. I'm having twins and that's why they had me seeing both. My high-risk office does ultrasounds at every visit, like my RE's did. It was hard for me to get used to a regular OB/GYN after being babied at the RE's office, LOL!

    How great that you have a video of your u/s. it's wonderful that you have an OB that is so caring and you feel so comfortable with. How funny that your appt is in 3 weeks instead of 4.

    Thanks for the info on the high risk OB. It makes sense that I might get referred to one too. How often are you seeing your high risk OB? It is really nice how babied we get at the RE's.

    I saw both doctors every 2 weeks until I was like 24ish weeks, then I had to see the high-risk OB every week so they could check my cervix and start doing anatomy scans and measuring the babies. When I hit 32 weeks, I started going every week to both the regular OB and high-risk OB. The high-risk docs do an ultrasound at every single visit. I really love seeing my babies that often.

    My main OB/GYN told me last night (when they made me check in to the hospital for tests) that he sees maybe 1-2 weeks until they'll have to schedule my c-section. He said that he sees one of two things happening: 1) blood pressure spiking to over 160/whatever or 2) the high-risk OB will see that one or both of the babies is running low on fluid, when they do their ultrasound.

    I hope that you get to go to a specialist, also. It's so nice to be reassured that your babies are doing well, especially after going through infertility issues. I had several risk factors during this pregnancy. The main one is that I'm having twins, I'm also 36 now, I had a small blood clot early on, and I did IVF.

    Those are really good heartbeats, btw. How many weeks are you now?

    I am also pregnant with twins via IVF. I only see a high risk OB which is nice because it cuts down on the doctor's appointments and a regular OB isn't going to do anything the high risk isn't already doing. I see her every two weeks but I anticipate going to every week soon.

    Good luck and keep us updated!

    Wow! That's a lot of visits. Seeing the babies every week would be awesome though! Hope you make it the next couple of weeks until your scheduled c-section. All of your information has been very helpful.

    I'm 8w2d today and can't imagine everything that will need to be done in the <30 weeks when the babies get here. The OB I'm switching to handles quite a bit of standard high risk (gestational diabetes, some twins), so I'm hoping he can handle a lot. He's a little over an hr dive and the nearest high risk is almost 3hrs away. my RE was 3 hrs one way.

    Hope you are enjoying being home.

    Seeing only the high risk OB does make a lot of sense o cut down on the visits. I would love to be able to do that, but the nearet technically high risk OB is almost 3 hrs away. How are you feeling with about 2 months to go? Some days it feels like forever until I'm due and others like I don't have enough time to get everything done. Good luck with your girls.

    I am feeling more than ready to get this over with . I'm pretty uncomfortable and everyday things are getting harder and harder every day. I do want the babies to stay put as long as possible though. I'm still working and hoping to work as long as physically possible. I am 28 weeks 3 days right now. My doctor said she won't let me go past 38 weeks so at most I have 10 weeks left....which seems like a lifetime!
