Sorry, I wrote a book....
These last few nights I've had strange episodes happen....Like last night, I was sleeping on my right side for a while and then I switched to lay on my other side and when i turned it felt like the baby ( yes, I know he/she is only like 3 " long) or my uterus was all hard and bunched up on the side I had been layng on. I can feel it too with my hand very easily. It took a few minutes for it to settle back down. Weird. This has happened a few times this past week at night. I'm use to that happening when I'm much further along, but not at 12 weeks! What on earth? My uterus is much bigger than it should be too. Guess because this is my 7th pregnancy?
My friend I walk with told me that she had an u/s at 8 weeks and they saw one baby and one heartbeat. A few weeks later she started spotting. Went to the doctor and they told her she was most likely miscarrying and go home and wait. At 11 weeks the spotting had stopped and she hadn't mc. She went to the dr for u/s expecting to see no heartbeat and they found her twins! She has identical twins! One had been hiding behind the other. So she went from having one baby to thinking she was miscarrying..to twins! Can you believe that?
She was trying to convince me that I was having twins too because of belly size..told her it was just leftovers from my previous babies. lol. So now that she has that in my head...plus, I've already been having this feeling about twins...I cant wait till Tuesday! I have another u/s Tues and I guess we will truly see if it is twins or one huge baby. lol.
Twins do run in my family. My dad is a twin. My sister has twins. My Aunt on my mom's side has twins. So, it could happen.
We did have an u/s at 8 weeks at a pregnancy center, but the lady had a hard time even finding my uterus. She didn't seem to really know what she was doing. We saw baby for literally 30 sec, a heartbeat and then done. So, I don't have much faith that there is only one.
I'll let you ladies know come Tuesday.
