musings and rantings of a blue state non bio mom

the real-life adventures of me, my partner, and our journey through ivf-enabled same sex TWIN motherhood (with not so infrequent rantings about politics in general).

Twins: Ultrasound pictures just shy of 10 weeks

Well, Bio Mom and I had a bit of a scare last night when Bio Mom spotted a tiny bit. We called the OB office (we've yet to actually see a genuine OB because we were discharged from our Reproductive Endocrinologist last week and are in pregnancy limbo right now). The very helpful doc on call called us back in the middle of Dolly Parton's Oscar performance (surely some sort of omen) and let us know that we could get an ultrasound done today. Phew. We were in withdrawal anyway; turns out we're ultrasound junkies and going almost three weeks without pics of the wee ones was killing us.

It's easy to be blase about this all now that there's no problem, but I was really afraid we had lost one.

Anyway, they are both fine: they measure normal range size for their ages (just a day shy of 10 weeks since LMP) and their hearts are each beating at 160 bpm. Lovely. One of them even waved at us (sort of).

And so, for your enjoyment, here are the pics:
