Drum Roll, Please.....

Twins!!! Each with a perfect little heartbeat!

Dr. Lee was in as much shock as we are. We are 5w5d and she didn't expect the heartbeats, but they were there! She found twin A's while she was measuring twin B, and vice versa. She said since they are still so primative, she couldn't get a bpm (afterall, they just started beating yesterday!) but that she was super impressed we could see them at all! We go back 2 weeks from tomorrow (at7w6d) for our follow-up and, assuming all is well, we will be released to Dr. Bailey. She is calling in a prescription for folic acid.

Right now, my fear is overrun by my joy and the hard hitting truth that my 3 babies aren't here to meet and know my 2 new babies. But, as Peter told me, they already know them... Better, perhaps, than we ever will.

Happy Holy Thursday. Prayers for you all, and blessings on your families.

Congratulations!! That is so amazing they could see heartbeats so early. Those little ones must have known to start beating them just in time for your appointment. So happy for you!

Here from LFCA...

Congratulations! What a beautiful sight. It's amazing how much difference each day makes at this stage; my first U/S was at 6w0d and they could calculate the BPM easily, since the babies were old pros with three days of beating hearts under their belts (well, of course they don't actually have belts).

Best wishes for a healthy pregnancy.
