The Excitement @ 14 Weeks...

This morning I had a Dr.s appointment. Being 14 weeks it was just a quick and simple visit, no weight gain yet (but now that I've stopped vomiting I'm SURE that will change quickly), blood pressure was good and the baby's heartbeat sounded strong....once he found it! I'll admit I was getting a little nervous as he moved the little wand all over with no luck. He then said "let's try a little lower" thinking the baby hadn't moved up yet much. Then to his surprise he found it but not low like he thought, he found it next to my belly button which is quite high.
He smiled and asked "we did an ultrasound last time and only saw one right?"
I stated "yes, why?"
He replied with "well normally the only time we get a heartbeat this high so early in the pregnancy is when there are twins".
I laughed and I assured him "there was only one in the ultrasound"
He said that I'll probably just carry quite high during the pregnancy. Whew, he had me nervous for a minute!

Haha. I would love to see Dave's face if you actually WERE carrying twins!

The look on his face would come in second to the look on mine!

Maybe I shouldn't tell you this girl - but when I went for my 20 week ultrasound - she said I looked big and "are there two in there??" and I said - oh no - I had a 6 1/2 week ultrasound...only 1...and then she told me about a lady she scanned that had the 6 week ultrasound...only saw 1 sack and 1 heartbeat - but came at 20 weeks and there were 2 babies! Turns out - at 6 weeks they are so small that they were like on top of eachother...so you never know!! :)
