OMFGOAPS (aka Jackpot!)

I feel like we've won the jackpot this morning.

Two.

There are two.

The pic for the bottom twin is blurry; the doctor would like me to go to another place with a much more powerful ultrasound next week to make sure. But measurements are good and all looks fantastic. And we saw a heartbeat for the top twin.

I am in shock. Happy, elated, ecstatic, amazed, stunned, joyous shock.

Addendum:
Now go vote for Mel (Stirrup Queens). She's been nominated as one of the best medical/health blogs. You can vote once per day. Believe me, this woman deserves this award and so much more. She brings attention to the issue of infertility and has given us all a place to congregate and talk, garnering support when we need it and distributing reliable, useful information when we need it. She is a godsend and I personally cannot wait to buy her book! Now GO VOTE!

OMG, that's stunning. And while I am glad for you, I am nervous, because twins are higher risk and mean you really will need close monitoring, plus the thyroid issues, etc. (You really do need an immediate adjustment of thyroid meds if you have twins and are in the first trimester.) Please get a high risk OB right this second. My OB here in Toronto specialized in twins, and if you can't find anyone there, I can ask him who he thinks is good. Dr. Tan will also have connections, and frankly, his opinions are important I think.

And, gulp, I hate to even mention this, but you do need that higher resolution US, and let us know what happens.
