Unscheduled Appointment

I had been having some cramping and spasms in my lower abdomen the past couple of days and decided that I needed to call the doctor to make sure everything was alright. Adam and I met with Dr. Zalkin for the first time and he immediately calmed my fears. He said that the spasms were caused by the rapid growth of my uterus. The ligaments that hold it up are struggling to keep up with the growth and it's causing me some minor discomfort. Dr. Zalkin said that it was normal for me to feel this pain early because I'm growing fast. Speaking of growing fast... I've gained 7 lbs since last Tuesday's appt!!!!! I don't know how I managed to do that because I haven't changed my eating habits.

The doctor did a full exam this time too. He checked my cervix, did an ultrasound, and measured my fundal height. The babies both look like they are measuring the same length, so everything is as it should be. Our next doctor’s appointment is the big 20 week appointment on November 1st. This is when we will find out the sex of the babies.

I posted the three pictures we got today. One is a shot of the tops of their two little heads and the other two are of each of them separately. I can’t believe how big they are getting and how well you can see there bones now.

Both Babies
