So my blob has a heartbeat!! The heart rate was 150 and my due date got pushed BACK two days from 12/23 to 12/25. Which only really makes a difference to me because we're going to induce at 39 weeks.

Anyway, here's my Rolo
Blob on the left is the yolk sac, blob on the right is Rolo



In other news, the nurse told me I am her "hardest blood draw ever" and I left with two holes in me and orders to take to labcorp in a couple days. :/ It's not the first time I've been told that.

Yeah, I knew I was a hard stick going in there, and I'm dehydrated from being sick, so I'm not surprised. :/ There's a reason I've never been able to donate blood in my life, even though I've tried a few times. My veins just suck.

And now I have two conditions that require frequent blood draws (pregnancy, and hypothyroid)

I was just going to ask for an update on you!!!! Now I'm 1 day ahead of YOU haha but same here, I'll go a week early with a repeat C/S.

I'm a hard stick in my right arm. You just can't get blood from it. Sometimes I swear they want the challenge and will try to get it. Now I put up a fight and refuse. Because they can't do it! I'm sorry you were a human pin cushion. Yes, I'm sure the dehydration doesn't help.

So happy your appt went well! YIPPEE! That heartbeat is FABULOUS!

Yay! Congrats on a fantastic u/s. I'm sorry the sticking was no fun, I'm sure the dehydration made it even worse.

When is your next appt.

Not until 12 weeks, so June...11th? Something like that. But we'll be doing the NT scan then, so I'll get another picture!

YAY for a good appointment! I'm sorry about the blood draw, though. It is very difficult to get that blood draw when you are dehydrated Once, I had to have blood drawn and it was SOOO hard to find, they actually had to put a warm towel on my arm for several minutes to make it easier to draw the blood. I was a mess and sick of getting stuck with no results, but the warm towel helped. Maybe next time, make sure you are warm or have something you can use to warm up your elbow area?

yeah, I know all the tricks. Sometimes that works, sometimes it doesn't. It didn't help with my last blood draw for my thyroid. She managed to get the one vial out of me by sheer force of will, I think, trying in my hand and I bled just barely long enough (seriously just one drop when she pulled it out).

This time, I apparently had no veins in my arms whatsoever, and the ones in my hands were just small. And since they also roll, they moved away from her. It was just an awful day altogether. Hopefully we have better luck when I go to the lab.

A lot of people thought that! but...twins usually have a membrane between them, not side by side like that...
