whew! [sigh]

so the midwife this morning seemed to think that while it is early for m to feel as much movement as she is feeling, and while her uterus is hitting the back of her belly button already (about 2-2.5 weeks earlier than "normal"), that it is not really big enough in there for twins.

and of course, there was still only one heartbeat on the doppler.

which, of course, really means nothing at all, and we will only know definitively on tuesday, two weeks from now, july 4, when we go in for the ultrasound.

but in the meantime, m has been appeased and can quit freaking out, and i can be a little sad, because if there is only one, then i am less likely to be able to automatically quit work when m is off maternity leave to stay home with the kid.

alas.

that part is a long way off, and perchance we will win the lottery in the meantime! one can dream!

Awwww!
M looks awesome! So glowy with baby!

Glad to hear that the twin concern has been (mostly) mitigated (for now). Sorry that it might not facilitate your being a stay at home Mama, Ru :-( Regardless, it'll all work out in the end, right?

Can't wait to see the ultrasound!

Love you all (ru, mel, and baby) much!
