Had our first ultrasound today....

One word - AMAZING!

Everything went as planned except one thing....Mr. MBC and I are expecting twins!  Holy Crap!  I didn't even think it was a possibility based on my ultrasound prior to my last IUI.  Here's the first photo of the MBC Babies:

Please excuse the poor quality.  I had to take a photo of the ultrasound print with my phone. 

Everything is moving along well.  Baby A is measuring 1 or 2 days behind Baby B, but the ultrasound tech assured me that was perfectly normal.  Baby B is measuring 5 weeks, 5 days so perfectly in line with our IUI date.

I talked to the nurse about some things and feel better:
  1. She assured me that all of the cramping was just my uterus expanding and nothing to worry about.
  2. She told me I could take a fiber supplement each day to help with my poop problem, more specifically lack of.
  3. She's going to talk to Dr. L about giving me some meds to help me sleep at night.  Exhaustion hits me around 2:30 or so each day.  I'm asleep by 8:30 most nights, but wide awake shortly after midnight.  I've always had sleep issues, but not that I'm pregnant it's hard to push through the day after a night of no sleep.
  4. She gave me some free sample of Rx Strength pre-natal vitamins.  I asked about switching to one that had DHA in it and she offered samples, so I took them. 
  5. She told me it was up to my OB as to how long I would take the Metformin.  So I guess time will tell on that.  She said that Dr. L typically reccomends up to 20 weeks.
  6. Laslty, I asked about having sex.  Mr. MBC has been quite neglected since my spotting scare the other week.  I was advised "nothing in the vagina" until further notice.  The nurse gave us the green light as long as sex isn't painful or leads to spotting. 
What a day!
