had my OB appointment yesterday.
They took me back and checked my blood pressure, weight and had me pee in a cup. I forgot to ask how much I had gained...but I am pretty sure it was around 6 pounds. I got to wait in the waiting room for another 30 minutes or so until they brought me back to sit and wait for my doctor to come in and see me.
She asked how I was doing and I told her about my headaches, she prescribed me something to help. We talked about my mom freaking out about thinking the babies were sharing the same sac....which they aren't.
They are in one placenta, in their own sacs. So that was good. I thought so but I figured I would check just to make sure.
She said that my uterus is up above my belly button now and I look good. She went out and wheeled the old sonogram machine into the room because she said it's so hard to distinguish two heartbeats that she would rather just take a look. They are SO much bigger than the last time I got to see them. The same as last time one was very active and just kicking and punching and the other was asleep. After moving around a lot on my belly and pushing fairly hard to see everything she finally woke the other up. It was so neat to see the two of them moving so much...it looked like they were fighting each other! She said they looked great and we'll get to see the sexes on April 6th! I am so excited for that appointment!

It was amazing to be able to see them so big. I can't wait until Joshua can come and see them too.
It's just beyond words the feeling of being able to see your babies inside of you moving around. I can't wait until I can actually feel them moving!
I tried to buy some more maternity clothes last night. All of the shirts I tried on were just like tents on me though. So I'm still not big enough for them yet. I am stuck in this weird middle area.

When we went to drop off my prescription that doctor gave me for my headaches the pharmacist didn't feel comfortable in giving it to me until they called my doctor. She said that there is something in the drug that can cause some problems in fetuses. What I have read online they have no idea what it can do because they don't obviously test drugs on pregnant women. So.....this is what it says online about Fioricet --This drug combination is in the FDA pregnancy category C. This means that its effects on an unborn baby are not known. Do not take this medication without first talking to your doctor if you are pregnant.
So....my doctor prescribed it. Do I trust her judgement and take it to give me some relief? Or be terrified to take it.....like I sort of am...because obviously I don't want something I take to hurt my babies.
