Today marks the week of the navel orange. Apparently our 2 little ones have graduated from being lemons to oranges!
Moving up the citris ladder.
This week is also the first OB appointment week! So exciting, even though I don’t get to go(the doctors still have me on a tight leash) and MR Duck will be traveling again (no i did not marry a travelling salesman but sometimes it does feel that way) so sadly M will be on her own. Sad for us, but, I know that M will give up a full update on Wednesday night of all the happenings at the OB! It’s also the very first appointment, which are super hard to get with this OB so the rest will hopefully be at the end of the day so at least Mr. can go (and maybe even me!). It feels like FOREVER since we have had any doctor contact ( 6 weeks is forever in my world).
The one thing I did learn this week from my blogging-buddy Sarah (thanks!!), is that the 18-20 week scan can be done on the weekends! How exciting that Mr and I will be able to go!! Also such a relief, I hate the idea of sending M all by herself to these things, that anything that can be done after 5pm or on weekends the better for everyone!
Questions for the experts… yeah that’s you!
What do they usually do at first OB appointments anyway? Would someone like to share with the pregnancy ignorent?
And how does it all work for surrogacy – will they need me and Mr duck’s medical history?After all that will have a large impact on the babies health….
What about frequency – how often do women have to go to OBs? And twin factor – does that increase the time?
I recently won 3 bids on 3 sets of New in packaging diapers off ebay. Yes, I know it’s early to start gathering items, but, with twins and infertility we want to save every way we can, so through winning these ebay auctions I just made some BIG savings (I love saving, really I’m one of those people that clips as uses coupons).
