The practice has a policy, which requires moms-to-be to meet each doctor on staff just in case their doc is not available when the babies decide to make their grand entrances. Today, we met with Dr. Buckley, and he was great! Super personality and very ready to answer my barrage of baby questions.
Before he headed into "answer mode" for me, he measured the diameter of my bump and then let us listen to the babies' heart beats! It wasn't a "lub dub" kind of sound. It was more like "wah, wah, wah, wah" in rapid succession. Think "wah wah" pedal for guitar.
The twin on my left's heart was beating at 150 beats per minute.
Dr. Buckley says those are great ranges, and the kiddos are doing very well! We are so proud of them!
BTW, I now weigh 147.2 pounds. That's the most I've ever weighed in my life. Dr. Buckley said that was appropriate, and I can expect to gain a total of 40 pounds before the babies come. Wow! I am definitely going to be sporting the winter version of a muumuu when the third trimester comes around!
Our other exciting news is we now know when we'll learn the sexes of the Wonder Twins! June 18! Look for a post here that afternoon for the breaking news alert!
