We just got home from my 3rd ultrasound - the first one with my regular OB.
The good news: both babies have great heartbeats. Baby C1's is 158 and Baby C2's is 155. Both sacs look great. They're very round - apparently a "banana shape" is a bad thing, and we don't have that. Baby C1 measured 8w0d and looked huge.
The not-as-good news: Baby C2 is even more behind now, measuring 7w2d. Dr. S is not concerned. She said that they don't get concerned unless they measure more than a week apart. Baby C2 is just in a super awkward position, they say. It's like she's at a 90 degree angle to Baby C1 and it seems like they're always looking at her from the end.
So, I'm still worried. Of course.
Next up: see an MFM. They are supposed to call me by Tuesday and set up an appointment. If they don't schedule something for the week of August 2nd, I can go back to Dr. S for another ultrasound that week.
On my referral to the MFM, Dr. S wrote 4 risk factors:
- IVF - twins
- History of pre-ecclampsia at delivery
- History of delivery at 16 weeks after premature rupture of membranes, possible incompetent cervix?
- MTHFR - homozygous
So, we'll see how the MFM wants to handle all of that. To cerclage or not to cerclage?
Once again, time will tell. Ugh. Waiting. Not my strong suit!
