13 weeks 2 days

I had my NT scan and bloodwork drawn.  Everything looks good so far.  It was nice to have an appointment with the Maternal Fetal Medicine doctor.  Because it is twins we will see him once a month for growth ultrasounds.  My next OB appointment is April 9th.  I'm also scheduled for an amnio on April 19th.  I've never known anyone that has had it done so super nervous but I'm sure it is better than it sounds!!  And my next growth ultrasound is April 30th.  In between we have a weekend planned in Chicago so I think this month is going to fly by.  Oh and I'm using rubberbands to keep my pants together.  I'm not extremely big yet but my belly does not fit in my pants.  The one last pair of jeans I had just bit the dust.  Maternity shopping is in my near future.

11 weeks

Today is 11 weeks with the twins.  Everything is going good.  The Dr. was super nice at the appointment and the nurses seemed excited since this is their first surrogacy patient.  There has been one other in the office but she saw another doctor so they have heard about it before which I think helps and makes them curious.  I think I've been feeling a few flutters so still very early but exciting nonetheless.  My clothes are getting snug but still fit so I'm trying to enjoy a few more weeks of wearing normal clothes.
Our next appointment is March 26th for the first trimester screening.  I will be 12weeks5days.

Up to Speed

I can't believe how much has happened since I last posted.  Here are the highlights:
1/16-Transfer 2 5 day embryos
1/20-Positive POAS at 4.5dp5dt
1/25-Beta #1 156
1/27-Beta #2 359
1/30-Beta #3 1746
Sounds like a nice healthy singleton right?  I was feeling super bad for my IFs because they were expecting twins, but my beta numbers were clearly pointing to only one.  Little did I know.
2/14-Ultrasound 6 weeks 6 days    TWINS!!!!!                Happy Valentine's Day
3/2 - 2nd Ultrasound 9 weeks 2 days     STILL TWINS!!!!!!  
I have had almost no morning sickness and most days I don't really feel pregnant, except my fast growing belly.  It was super nice to see that second ultrasound and still see everything on track.  Tomorrow is my first OB appointment.  It is a new doctor to me and I'm hoping he adjusts to our situation easily. 
I'm super excited/shocked/excited/nervous/excited/terrified of expecting twins.  I know how to be pregnant with one but two will be a whole new experience.  Can't wait to see what happens.
