And the Verdict Is...



Let me introduce you all to Sticky Bun (Bun A) and Sweet Bun (Bun B). We have 2 Buns baking! Sticky bun is measuring right on schedule (6w4d) and Sweet Bun is a day ahead (6w5d). They both look great! We weren't able to hear the thump of the little heartbeats because they don't like to use doppler this early on, but we did get to see the little flicker of both heartbeats on the screen and it was so cool! One was beating at 115 bpm and the other at 118 bpm, which is right on target. And my cervix looks great also (closed and long).

Looks like we'll definitely be reading that multiples book that K&G gave us!

congrats on your sticky buns, what great news! I wonder if your 2nd bout of spotting wasn't #2 burrowing in for the long haul.

Whoohoo for Sticky and Sweet!!!!

Phoebe said...

Congratulations! I think one of the best resources on multiples is looking for clubs in your area. Just google your town and "twins club" or the like. They have lots of support set up for moms of twins. Usually, clubs like these have sales in the spring and fall, which is very useful. Oh, and I wouldn't worry about reading too much at this point. Most of the books on multiples just freaked me out.

I am so excited for you! What a great way to kick off your day with fabulous news! Sticky and Sweet - I love it!!! These 2 special darlings will have such a fabulous mommy and daddy (and furry siblings, too!). While multiples can be scary (and I speak only from the experience of being one!!!), there is such a special bond between the two of them that is just so cool!!!

XOXOXO (and a bonus Hell Yeah XOXO)

I opened your post, gasped and covered my mouth. This was followed by a smile. I am completely and utterly happy for you. Marvel in the joy and fear you are feeling all at the same time. You have a lot of time to get used to this idea of 4 feet running around your floors. The ultrasound looks absolutely amazing!

Congratulations on two wonderful little beans with wonderful little beating hearts!!!!

Like Phoebe said, you can go to http://www.nomotc.org/ and find a local Mothers of Twins group for great resources. As soon as I'm not-nauseous enough to sit in a coffee shop I'm heading to one in Charleston.

Congratulations!! New here via NCLM. It looks like it has been a long road for you to get here. I'm glad to arrive in happy times, but wish I could have supported the harder moments. VERY happy and healthy 9 months to you.
