22 Weeks Pregnant With Twins Update

Sharing is caring!

The biggest thing about 22 weeks is that ULTRASOUND! I will have a post detailing the results from the ultrasound – it was a fetal echo. Basically it was a 2 hour long ultrasound looking at the hearts of the twins looking for any defects. IVF babies have a 7% increased risk of having heart defects. I was not too worried I was happy to see my little ones again PLUS seeing my OB again.

Seeing my high risk OB is always nerve wracking. My blood pressure was MUCH better than before – 117/72 – I am still trying to be careful with the amount of salt I am taking in. The one issue I had with the appointment is that I want to be seen more just for peace of mind. Basically I am worried I am going to miss the signs of something and waiting a month is a little much; however, my OB said there is nothing wrong so we are keeping with the month plan.

 

Side Note – MORNING SICKNESS CAME BACK FOR THE WHOLE WEEK — YAY…. not.

Here is my bump shot

Now for the ultrasound photos… Let me explain Baby A ( She is face planted onto my bladder soooo that is why she looks …. honestly a little scary)

Here is Baby B
