I had my first midwife appointment today. It went really well overall and I quite like her!

Here's the sad thing. We discussed my early bleeding g / passing clots, my super high HCG, and my abnormally large gestational sac. She said that these three things together point to the early loss of a twin.

Of course, there is no way to know for sure.

It just made me sad. I feel like if we did lose a twin, that little baby will not be properly mourned and recognized. I feel like I should *do* something....

But in the end, I'm still having a healthy pregnancy.

It's a very strange thing to contemplate.

The rest of the appointment was really great. She is very supportive and I talked a lot about my cow analogies. She thought that was neat. (DH is a dairy farmer and delivers probably a hundred calves a year. The best thing you can do for a cow in labor is to not interfere. Another big question in my mind has always been "Why don't cows ever need episiotomies?" They never need stitches after birth, either. It has always puzzled me. Is the cow really that much better designed than the human? That's my rant for today.)

Anyone else have an appointment soon or recently? How are you all doing?
