Update - Peri Appt

I had my first Peri appt yesterday (almost 20 weeks). The peri I am seeing is awesome!!!! We had a Level 2 u/s. Placenta, blood flow, and Baby B are doing great!! The peri really hopes to see the beginning of placental or blood flow problems before they impact me or Baby B so she's going to see me again at 26 weeks.

The Level 2 was so cool!! We expected Baby B to be between 7 and 9 ounces, and s/he was 10 ounces!! [:)] Hubby and peri think they know the sex, but I want it to be a surprise. Well, actually the truth is I just can't trust the u/s after thinking Aidan was a girl from two u/s's!!

Amanda,

That's wonderful! I'm so happy for you! Level two's are fun, aren't they?

I have a question...so are you pregnant with twins or is Baby B a nickname?

Congratulations!

I guess that is confusing for people that have had twins. [:I] Our last name starts with a B and this is our second baby so we thought Baby B would be the best nickname.

Wonderful to hear everything is going well!! I think it's cool that you are keeping the sex of baby B a suprise!! I didn't find out with Sam and it was some how a little more exciting to hear "It's A boy!!" Although, it's exciting having a baby no matter what!!!
