I set up a widget on the right for you to vote - boy or girl? I can tell you right now, I haven't had any real thoughts one way or another. No weird dreams, either. Nothing to really hint at baby's sex AT ALL!

Within the uterus there appears to be a single gestational sac. A yolk sac is identified. There is a fetal pole within with an adjacent smaller solid structure as well. This raises the question of a twin pregnancy with fetal demise of one of the two. The largest structure with cardiac activity at 195 beats per minute labeled twin A with a mean crown-rump length of 30 mm corresponding to 9 weeks and 6 days.
The smaller structure labeled twin B is 19 mm corresponding with gestational age of 8 weeks and 3 days. No activity.
The patient's uterus is retroverted.
1. Single living pregnancy identified within the uterus based on the mean crown-rump length is at 9 weeks 6 days with an EDC 05/10/2013.
2. Within this same sac, is a second more difficult to see structure that would raise the question of a twin pregnancy. This would correspond to 8 weeks and 3 days. No cardiac activity is identified within. This raises the question of demise of a twin.
This is all there is. No ultrasound photo. Just words.
I had another scan on November 1. This was just 6 days after miscarrying the first twin.
2. The previous anatomic findings raising suspicion for a twin pregnancy with demise is no longer seen. There is a septation however. This may represent further resorption of a previous demise.
I don't think of it often, but when I do, it hurts.
Austin saw this bike at our Church's garage sale and was hoping to buy it. On the last day of the sale, he made an offer of $10 (the last in his piggy bank) and the bike was his.
He wants to spray paint it. I said absolutely not. I think all of the kids will good some good use out of this bike.

We have a shirt for Ian that says 'Lil' Bro' and thought the new shirt would come in handy this winter. ;-)
This past Wednesday marked the 15 week mark for me. We lost our second twin at 15 weeks 6 days. Hoping the next few days fly by and our little sweet pea hangs on.
At this point, I'm feeling pretty good. No huge complaints other than lack of sleep and crazy mad heartburn that leads to esophageal spasms. Otherwise, the morning sickness is pretty much gone! Yay!
Just a few more weeks until the big ultrasound. We can't wait!
