8 Weeks

Yesterday we reached the 2 month mark! I went in Friday for a sonogram and everything looked great. I have been fighting off an upper respiratory infection for about a week and a half and on Sunday it got really bad. I was coughing so much that I started bleeding and ended up in the emergency room. We were terrified that it was a miscarriage and the 25 minute drive to the hospital seemed to take an eternity. They did a very extensive sonogram and confirmed that the babies were both fine. We got to hear the twins' heartbeats for the first time. One was 145 bpm and the other was 153 bpm. I never did get a definite answer for the bleeding, but my doctor thinks that I coughed so hard that I ruptured one or more blood vessels. It was quite a scare! I had to stay in bed for three days until the bleeding stopped and have started an antibiotic. I am finally starting to feel better! Here is the sonogram picture from my appointment on Friday, September 11th.
