We had our first NST today. It was very cool. I had one small contraction during the whole time we were there. Frankly I was hoping to have some because I really wanted to see what it looked like on the monitor. The babies behaved very well - both heartbeats were great, pretty close to each other. It was cool to see how their heartbeats increased when they were moving around.
After the monitoring, we met with the doc. As soon as he came in he said "well, we continue to be amazed at how great you're doing". As usual, BP was good, cervix was nice and tight. I've gained 5 pounds in one week, which he was a little suprised at. But I have no bloating or swelling - so it must just be all the ice cream.
This weekend for the very first time, someone asked me if the twins were from fertiilty. In the middle of a pool party, in front of at least 15 other people. I was being introduced to all these people at once, so everyone was listening, and one man blurts out "are they natural or fertility?". jeez. talk about being put on the spot. I said "we had a little help". I wish I would have thought on my feet a little faster. What I would have liked to have said was "that's a very personal question". but I didn't. People can be so rude sometimes. I'm not ashamed of what we had to do to get these babies, but I also don't think it's very polite for people to ask such personal questions.
