I Guess We're Going to Need a New Car
After my feet blew up even more last night, I went to the Emergency Room today to make sure everything was all right. They did a ton of blood tests and urine tests and just to make sure the embryo was still okay, they did an ultrasound as well. There is not much to see but a beating heart at that stage, but I really wanted to see that beating heart after all the funky things that have been happening to my body. Well, they did not, in fact, find one viable embryo... but they did find TWO of them! That's right. We're having twins... and they both had heartbeats! The sonographer said they are looking good because they are in distinct, separate sacs and they are high in the uterus which apparently is good. So now we need a car with more than 4 seat belts, eh? My feet are as sore as ever but we are so happy. The doctor's are thinking the foot rash is a reaction to all of the crazy hormones. Wow. Hope we can get it under control. I have a new cream and an appointment with a dermatologist so we'll see.
