9w, 3d and the munchkins are great!

I had my first appointment at my actual Ob/Gyn's office today! I am seeing a midwife, but she is extremely knowledgeable and kind. They surprised me with an ultrasound today, which was a wonderful surprise. Sadly, Jonathan wasn't there because I was sure that they weren't going to do one! Apparently, since twins' heartbeats are hard to tell apart on Doppler, I will get an ultrasound at every appointment I have.

Our babies are both growing perfectly and are both measuring a couple days ahead of schedule now. One of the babies was perfectly facing the ultrasound probe and the other was a bit reluctant to have his/her photo taken, but we got great shots of both.





It was so sweet to see them wiggling around and to hear some very strong heartbeats. Thank you for your prayers! How good is God for giving us these sweet babies?

Ok so the words that came out of my mouth when I read "9w, 3d" was "OH ABBIE!" PRAISE GOD! Oh my goodness girl if I could give you a hug right now I would :) You know I have been thinking about you and I hadn't seen anything from you on FB so I was worried there for a lil while....

TWINS... Girl I could scream right now but I hardly have a voice cause of a cold so I will scream really low k :)

Will be praying for these two lil blessings in your womb...

And always Hebrews 11:1 will be prayed for you all the time :)

God is good all the time!!!

Ok sorry I am really excited :)

IN Christ, Melanie

So sweet! We have an u/s pic from about the same time with the twins. I think it's one of the only ones with both of them in the same picture. You'll be amazed at how quickly they grow. We had an ultrasound at every appointment to do a quick growth check and to check heartbeats too. Then every 8 weeks in the beginning we did level 2 ultrasounds.

I'm so excited for you. Twins are tough, but you can do it! I hope you're taking weekly belly pics. It's shocking to see how much you grow and when you really pop.
