Initial OB appt.

Of course, I had to start out with a new ultrasound pic! The twins looked great and were both within the appropriate ranges for growth. I'm so relieved. They've grown a lot in 2 weeks!

My OB appt. took longer than I had anticipated. My nurse and MD reviewed all of the scary twin info. Always nice to hear. I get to go back in 2 weeks for another OB u/s. Yippee! My OB knows how much of a procedure junkie I am, so I'm glad to get another appt so quickly! I also had b/w drawn today for the initial OB panel. Fine, but I told the nurse 90% of it was unnecessary as I've had almost all the b/w within the last 6 months at CCRM. Oh well, sounded like a pain to waive everything, so please Mrs. Vampire, take more of my blood...

Speaking of vampires, I went to see "Twilight" finally tonight with my friend, Gina. We had so much fun and would appear to both have strong crushes on Edward. How can we not? I was hooked when I read the entire novel in one day on bedrest following my FET in Denver over Thanksgiving. I kept thinking, "Bite me Edward, kiss me." Steve doesn't care about my crush. That's good.

Finally, last blood reference, E2 and P4 bloodwork looked good today too. I'll post more specifics later. A good day though and I hope the bad dreams are gone for a while at least...

I've been waiting all night for this update. So glad that the twins are growing beautifully!!!! May time fly before your next appointment!

Yay - great picture! You should check out Charlaine Harris' Southern Vampire novels - Sookie Stackhouse is the main character - lots of fun! A bit more adult than Twilight in the romance department though.

Look at my litle nephew's growing!!! I'm going to make one of them a Bears fan and just teach the other one to not be a Cowboys fan.

I'm glad that your appointment went well and that the twins are doing great.

I love the Twilight books, too (I feel like I should be whispering that!!!) I've read the whole set and it's so good. Of course, my favorite is the first one, and I loved the movie.

Anyway, glad to hear things are going well.
