Whose got two thumbs and monsters on board?


<Pointing at herself with thumbs up>  THIS GAL!

We got to see DocO today and he was grinning from ear to ear when he saw us in the lobby and gave me two thumbs up.  When he arrived in the ultrasound room, he asked me how I was doing and I explained I was nervous due to my loss of symptoms.  He looked a little concerned and gently said, “You don’t have to be miserable in order to be pregnant.  Let’s have a look.”  The date with Wanda had begun.  First thing he zoomed in on one and pointed and said “there’s the heartbeat” then he immediately swung around the wand to find the other one and point out the heartbeat, “and that looks good too.”  I love that he did that for me.  He allayed my fears first thing and then went to do his meticulous measuring.  DocO is a very compassionate man and I am so lucky to have been taken care of by him and all the other wonderful people at the practice.  The measurements were spot on, these little guys tripled in size in 2 weeks (Wow!).  The heartbeats were at 178 and 180 bpm.  I am so very happy about all of these good indicators.  Go little monsters! 

Their duck monster and frog monster likeness has morphed into more shrimp-like beings that look the same.  You could see their little arms and feet waving, which was really cool.  I got a CD with the images and videos that are fun to watch.  There are much monster gesturing and wild party dancing moves going on in there.  I think the conversation in the womb must have been something like this…

Most importantly MrBeep was laughing while he watched and was smiling at me and squeezing my hand.  I got lots and lots of hugs and kisses for a job well done.  I’m so excited, I can’t believe I have to get an OB/GYN now.  I have “graduated” from the RE office.  Yikes. I’m off to make a bunch of phone calls. 

So far so good.  Mommy loves you very much and keep waving and monster mashing.

Love that video. It made me smile. So did the news of your little monsters! Great heartbeats. So glad you have a wonderful Dr. who showed you first what you needed to see (live babies!) and then went on to the technical stuff.

Sigh. I love a good monster story.

SO glad to hear all is well. I felt so frightened for you when you described your symptoms going away (I can say that now I think), but I'm so glad all is well.

Yessssssss! That is such exciting news. Almost as exciting is the news that you do not have to be miserable to be pregnant. I missed that memo, apparently. But hooray for you! I am happy as hell that you are relatively symptomless. Congrats! Big huge hugs and congrats my dear.

Oh boy, am I glad or am I glad that Romulus and Troilus are doing good!

Congrats on graduating....I hope you go into as good hands as DocO...a compassionate doctor who is also an expert, is like watching a rainbow on a clear blue sky.

Special mention: Thanks for the super lovely comment the other day on my post. It warmed my heart a lot...thanks!

Go monster go!! That has to be the neatest thing to see those little babies in there. And both hb's are nice and strong.

The recipe for the pie on my blog is here.

Told you so! So glad that you're reassured and relieved. And you can be another posterchild for fluctuating symptoms not meaning badness.
Happy graduation.

Excuse me while I do a little dance...

*do do do, cha cha cha, yeah!*

CONGRATULATIONS on graduating to the OB, mommy to be! Another great milestone.

With those heartbeats, I'm thinking girls.

But I'm usually wrong.
