Haven't updated in forever!

I'm 14 weeks, 4 days today :) And I haven't updated my blog in forever.

So they day after we met the OB, we went and saw our MFM (high-risk OB). I really liked him and we got to see the babies for over 30 minutes. We went ahead and did the NT scan as well. The measurements came back good, but I haven't heard on the blood work. We see him next week so I'll ask then. Hopefully no news is good news.
Baby A did have some reversed blood flow in the heart, but he told us it's way too early to let it worry us. We'll take a closer look next time. I'm really optimistic that it's nothing, but having gone through all the heart issues myself, it's one of my biggest fears for my babies. Dr. B also told me he was 85% sure Baby A is a girl. Baby B, however, wouldn't cooperate at all. Very typical for him/her. Hopefully we'll find out for sure next week.
The week after that I had my appointment with my cardiologist. That went excellent as far as my heart, but it was  quite eventful. The night before I started having some red spotting, which started getting slightly heavier that morning....almost to a light period. I called my OB, who told me not to be concerned unless it got heavier. Being the nervous nelly that I am, I checked into the ER at the hospital by my cardiologist. I had almost a 5 hour wait between appointments anyways so I figured I might as well. After about 3-3 1/2 hours in the ER, tons of blood tests, a catheter for a urine sample, and lots of babies, they finally did an u/s. My babies were moving around like crazy and had strong heartbeats! Thank God!! So the doctor thinks that my blood clot finally passed, causing the bleeding. Here I am almost two weeks later and I'm still spotting a tiny bit. It's so annoying, but knowing my babies are ok, makes it ok. I'm thinking it'll be over with in the next few days.
Ok I will update after our gender u/s next week! EEK!
