After the ultrasound, we met with the Perinatologist. What a weirdo. He sat in his chair with a gangsta lean and his hands behind his head and asked me how I got pregnant with twins. I told him I went to see a Reproductive Endocronologist and what eventually worked was Clomid + IUI+ Progesterone Supps. He then asked me if my RE was happy that I was having twins. How do I answer that!? I told him that she did make me aware that I could have multiples (I had 3 follicles) and that my chances of twins was only 8%. He then proceeded to tell me things I already know:
- "When you're pregnant with twins, your chances of early delivery are greater."
- "You have a greater chance of developing gestational diabetes."
- "You have a greater chance of developing pre-eclampsia."
Then he said that the twins are measuring just fine and I'm to come back in 4 weeks for another ultrasound. That was it. It took all of 4 minutes. I just nodded at him, thanked him and left.
Despite the doctor who told me absolutely nothing, it was a great visit and I can't wait until the next one!
