12 Weeks

12 weeks today!  Still not sure I'm seeing much of a difference in my belly.  Maybe a little smaller?

There really isn't a whole lot to report.  My next doctor's appointment is next week.  I never got the referral off post so I had to switch my insurance.  Even though the doctor wasn't sure when they delivered twins last and there is no NICU, they felt like they could "handle" my pregnancy and delivery.  We just aren't comfortable with that.  It's all for the best anyway.  At the one appointment I went to I was told, "We'll probably start looking at a controlled induction around 38 weeks because no one likes to be called in the middle of the night.  It's just no fun for anyone."  Really?  REALLY?  Then maybe you need to be a different kind of doctor.  I've heard of a lot of babies that weren't born between 9 and 5, Monday through Friday.  I have heard many other horror stories from friends that I won't bother to recount here.  We're thankful we have the option to switch even though it will be more money out of pocket.  It's frustrating since we've paid so much already; Tricare doesn't cover much for infertility.  But it's worth it for the peace of mind, to say the least.  

Hopefully there will be more pictures of the babies to post after my appointment next week!  


  1. Yes, I agree your stomach looks smaller in this picture. I hope you are feeling ok! And good for you for switching insurance instead of taking a crappy offer. Ashlyn was a regular pregnancy and w/in 30 minutes of her birth she was moved to a different hospital because the one we were at had no NICU. Peace of mind. It doesn't matter how much it costs. It's worth it!

  2. This is so exciting. I'm so incredibly happy for you.
