Last week when I went to the MFM doctor, he raised a slight concern that these twins might still be identical, just that they happened to split everything very early. Knowing my experience with identical twins, he wanted an in-depth ultrasound to ensure they were fraternal.
That was this morning.
it was awesome. Yes, they are fraternal and both have their own placenta (big deal…seriously…as Joe Biden would say “this is a big fucking deal”). And best of all, they were MOVING AROUND during the ultrasound. I think we woke them up because they seemed to be a bit awnry. One even raised her/his fist at me as if to say “WHY ARE YOU IN HERE SO EARLY?!!?” Right on, kid. Right on.
According to the MFM my due date is February 8th, not 9th. Thus according to that, I will be twelve weeks on Friday. I’m in this weird state of disbelief and awe that I’ve made it this far.
But this morning…for a brief period of time…I felt like everything was going to be okay. Maybe not perfect, but okay. And I breathed out a giant sigh of relief.
