When you're pregnant with twins, you have more appointments, more ultrasounds, more tests...To be honest, I don't mind having an ultrasound every four weeks. It is absolutely amazing to see the babies growing like weeds and now moving around like crazy.
On new years eve, we went to an ultrasound clinic. Ultrasounds one through three were at the fertility clinic and Mount Sinai. Mount Sinai is a Toronto hospital that has a specialized OB ultrasound clinic. The experience at the hospital was great. The tech was friendly and patient while she waited for both babies to get into the right positions for certain measurements. She took the time to explain everything to us. Unfortunately, our experience on new years eve wasn't quite so positive. Firstly, they wouldn't allow Jenn to come in for the ultrasound until the very end. The tech worked quickly and said that she wasn't allowed to answer any questions or give us any information. When Jenn finally came in, the tech turned the screen to show us the babies. While she gave us a few pictures, they were all of baby B. She wouldn't wait for baby A to get in a better position.
Maybe I'm being naive and this is the "normal" ultrasound experience or maybe Mount Sinai's awesome tech set the bar a little high for us. At the end of the day, it was awesome to see the babies again but it was still difficult to leave there not knowing if all went well.
Stay tuned for ultrasound #5 when the babies' genders will be determined!
