9 weeks 1 day, first U.S. appointment

I had my first appointment in the U.S. on Tuesday. They had scheduled four hours of time, but I was out within 3 ½. The first appointment of the day was for an ultrasound. Baby A and Baby B still have heartbeats and are measuring well.

Baby A: 2.5cm, measuring at 9 weeks 2 days, heart rate 174.

Baby B: 2.4cm, measuring at 9 weeks 2 days, heart rate 174.

The next appointment was for an intake briefing with the nurse manager. She was absolutely lovely. We went over the usual medical history, family history, meds, travel restrictions (err, this could be a problem) etc.

March 18, 2012 will remain the official due date. She said they don’t adjust the date for twins, but just to be aware that I won’t make it. I didn’t think I would, considering that Kate was early.

On Monday, I see my high risk OB.


  1. That is my anniversary! It will bring you lots of luck :o)

  2. Glad you are doing well. With twins you might have to get real about a lot of travel. You are in a different world now. TWINS!!!!

  3. Beautiful little babes! Congrats!

  4. This is great news. I hope they clear you to travel so that y'all can go to your next assignment all together. I know you are so excited!

  5. Great news!! I'll have to read back to see how your travelling went! Much love, Fran
