Can you believe it!? Not only am I pregnant still, but I have twins! OOO this is so exciting! Well, I must admit I’m nervous and there’s a lot to be concerned about. I never thought I’d like the idea of having twins, but I do. I still do!
I am at about 7 wks 5 days at this point. Baby A is measuring at 7 weeks 5 days with a heart rate of 156. Baby B is measuring at 7 weeks 4 days with a heart rate of 150. This is the furthest I’ve ever been! Not to mention the first time I’ve ever had a pregnancy show the fetus at the same age as my actual pregnancy date. So far I’m due July 20. I am also dropped from the office I was at. I was a little disappointed about that. I really liked it there, but they are not an OB/GYN office. They are a reproductive endocrinology office and do not monitor pregnancies….just make them happen!
Well, I am really hoping this is it for me and Jason. We don’t have to go through any more disappointments with my pregnancies. I did tell family and a few friends. I couldn’t help it! I’m excited. My husband is excited as well and will be telling his family. We are just shocked and overwhelmed by the news ourselves.
Now, here’s the big decision to make. I want to finish my externship. I want to graduate and get my certification test out of the way. But, assuming everything still goes well, do I look for a job? Already I’m told I’m high risk, but how high risk I don’t know. I may be asked not to work early on in my pregnancy simply due to the fact I’m having twins. The new place also wants to watch me because of my multiple sclerosis and how that will react to my having twins and visa versa. So, do I take off from looking for work until after I have the babies and go through my own personal maternity leave? Or, do I look and hopefully get a job and risk being told to stop going to work before I’m due? I can always audit a class or two or more from school for free if I take off that much time before looking for a job. But, I won’t be doing anything for so long! I could use the time off, but I haven’t had any work for so long, it would be nice to get back into work responsibilities. There’s the dilemma that I’m facing. I have some time to think about it, so I’m not going to stress over it at this point, but it will be a concern pretty soon.
YAY! I’m having TWINS!
