Heartbeat x2

God blessed us by allowing us to see 2 strong beating hearts today! Baby A's heart rate was 120 bpm and Baby B's heart rate was 124 bpm. Thank you, Lord!

Dr. K's follow-up call was encouraging yesterday. He told me that heartbeats are usually seen at 6 weeks, but not always. And he also said that everything looked normal on Thursday and he expected us to see heartbeats today. We prayed he was right - and he was! We were amazed at the miracle of it all - somewhere between Thursday and today, God just "turned on the switch" and their hearts began beating.

I also realized that today is December 14th. On November 16, they were thawed and transferred to my womb. So, less than a month ago, they were frozen in liquid nitrogen and today, their hearts are beating! Amazing.

We haven't officially heard from the NEDC regarding my ultrasound today, but the local sonographer said everything looked great. So, Lord willing, Dr. K will also be pleased with the results.

Praise GOD! That is awesome news! Cool to think that they were frozen a short time ago! What a miracle! Praying that for a healthy pregnancy!

yayayaayayyyyy!!!!!!! I'm sure Dr. K's report will be great! At 6 weeks, 4 days, our heart rate was 121 and Dr. K was pleased with that. Then, at your 9 week, they should really jump up! Okay... I want to hear SYMPTOMS! Take us inside the body of a mama with twins! I hope hope you do not have double the symptoms!!!

So wonderful to hear! Let me know if you need any twin prego tips! :) GOD IS GOOD!

Holly said...

Okay, that is great news!!! NOW, stop googling every little symptom or you'll drive yourself insane(take it from someone who has been there, done that). Put your trust, faith and pregnancy in God's hands. Eat well, rest a lot and enjoy the next 9 months! Those precious little ones will be here before you know it!

XOXO
