I had my NT scan yesterday with the high risk doctor.. All went well! :-)
Both babies had perfect measurements, one HB was 158 and the other was 160.. They ARE identical and sharing a placenta so they will monitor me every 2 weeks until about 30 weeks then weekly. so of course I'm worried about twin to twin but he said it's about a 10% chance so I'm trying to stay positive.. He said we wont go past 37 weeks.. they said they like to get the identicals out sooner? I didn't know that. I expected that though since my son was early due to some of my health issues, I didn't have Pre-E but I was spilling loads of protein so they were worried and just took him at 36w 5d.. so they are afraid the same thing will happen this time or I will have pre-E. I'm supposed to start taking baby asprin to help the BP even though my BP has always been normal, well better safe than sorry I suppose lol
the tech wouldn't give me a gender guess yet (as to be expected lol) but said since I will be back in 2 weeks she will tells us then! I'll only be 15 weeks then but i will be in every 2 weeks so I will definitely know within the next month what we are having! hahaha We are crossing our fingers for girls since both of us have boys already.
anyway, heres some pics :-) Sorry they are so crappy, my scanner wasn't connecting to my computer so I had to take a picture of the picture with my phone.. ugh
and the tech kept joking about how they were laying the exact same way and acting the same way already haha what are we in for?!
How exciting. I developed pre-e with DD, but never had any complications with the twins so hopefully you won't either. I also think it helped me that I wasn't working with my twin pregnancy and was with DD up until almost the end. It's typical for a twin pregnancy to not go over 37 weeks.
