The Ramblings of a 15mo Old

Some video of Greyson hanging out and videoing himself with my phone. I had to help him after a while, but it's so cute!

7w1d: Our 2nd ultrasound

Today was the much awaited heartbeat confirmation ultrasound! It initially was scheduled to be 2/21 but after talking, Christy and I both agreed that she should switch OBs since we both felt that her previous one while SUPER nice, was a bit too laid back for a twin pregnancy. We both felt more comfortable going with someone that is more hands on and proactive given there are multiples at play here. So with that said, when she called to set an appointment they had one for today! Our original OB appt was 3/5/14 so we were all happy that we got bumped up!

My brother-in-law Toby was able to go with Christy, so he was the video man for us today! We skyped in and he was nice enough to get us a good view of the entire ultrasound. Both babies were measuring 6w6d (a few days +/- is ok) and Baby A had a heart rate range of 138-145bpm and Baby B had a heart rate range of 121-131bpm. The nurse said it could be a bit higher for B but since "he/she" is farther away and they are so small still it's harder to get a good read on Baby B. At the next appt we will get an official due date and that will also be NT scan day! So 5 LONG WEEKS to wait until another ultrasound! I hope it goes by fast, I think once we are out of the first trimester I will breathe MUCH easier!

Anyway, here are a few pictures from today and a bump pic (already!!!)!

7wks


In other big news, we did a COMPLETE MAKEOVER on Greyson's room this weekend! We decided to keep him in his original room and do a nursery in the room next to his since it's bigger. We felt that if we moved him to a new room AND took him out of his crib it was going to be too much. This way, even though he is no longer in his crib, he is still in his same room and in his comfort zone. The transition to big boy bed and a new room has been fantastic! Lately his favorite thing to watch is Sesame Street. He is obsessed with Elmo. So we did a full out Sesame Street theme and HE LOVES HIS ROOM! He says WOW several times a day when he walks  back there, it's adorable!


He thinks the sound his belly makes on the plastic is hilarious

It was a B*&%$ to paint those shelves.

These bunkbeds are perfect so the big boys can still visit and have a place to sleep!

LOVES his race car bed! (and wearing shoes over footie pajamas!)

Testing out his bed!

Beta Results Part 3 aka 16dp5dFET

So Christy had her beta done on Monday! Since we are having the sonogram on Friday, we loved the idea of using the initial early beta I ordered (couldn't use it since she had bad weather and I didn't want her chancing the drive!) as a late beta since our clinic only does 2!

So she went Monday on 16dp5dFET and we got the results back today, since they aren't orders from the clinic they aren't ordered same day (STAT) well, since I have never had experience with a beta this late, we don't really know what it means, except that it's GOOD!


AHEM... Without further delay the beta for 16dp5dFET is.........






8232!!!! How much longer is the wait until Friday?!?!?! I need to wake up and it be time already!!!!
