10 Weeks

I'm 10 weeks today and we had our appointment with the OB. We got the good news we've been hoping for...the babies are in their own separate sacs! Here is an ultrasound picture showing the membrane down the middle.

Along with the good news, we got some weird news. Baby A is measuring right on track at 10 weeks, but Baby B is only measuring at 9 weeks 1 day, 6 days behind. I think that can mean a few different things but one thing is that the doctor doesn't think they are identical. And that means that they might end up being 2 different sexes! So that's a little exciting. I'm not sure if he is just guessing or what he really thinks, but I'll feel more comfortable with the information I get when we go see the specialist.

This is a good picture of Baby A, head down. And you can see the little arm buds and leg buds. And it also has a little sneak peak of Baby B above it.

Baby B is noticeably smaller and this means a big difference in their heart rates.

This is Baby A's heart rate...169 beats per minute.

And this is Baby B's heart rate...132 beats per minute.
The doctor said this is nothing to worry about and completely normal. So we'll just wait and see what's in store at our next appointment in 2 weeks. Oh yeah, I'm so lucky that I get to see my babies every 2 weeks! Woohoo!

Here are my belly pics from today.

I tried not to slouch in this next one and it resulted in back is way arched and my butt is sticking out. Oh well, I was tired and over it, so it her it is...
