One of the questions I’ve had in the early stages of this pregnancy have been regarding the frequency and type of doctors appointments as well as milestones and important dates. There is a lot of info out there but I couldn’t find anything that was chronological and definitive enough for me to base my appointment schedule/life off of. I’m going to update this post periodically with the week/day of the pregnancy that each appointment is and briefly what happened at that appointment.
6w5d – Initial appointment, twins confirmed. Assumed mo/mo twins because no dividing membrane had been found. Babies measured 6w5d and 6w3d.
8w2d – Inital nurse intake interview at new OB after switching. No ultrasound, no doctor visit.
9w3d – Inital visit with new OB + ultrasound that confirmed dividing membrane and mo/di twins. Babies both measured 9w3d.
11w5d – Visit with regular OB (hasn’t yet happened, will update with stats and info).
12w – “Sagitital sign” can be noticed to determine male gender on high resolution ultrasound. (Unlikely)
12w2d – Visit at Perinatology office for an ultrasound and then genetic counseling.
9/23/17 13 Weeks – 2nd trimester begins
13w5d – OB Appointment, ultrasound to check heart beats.
15w6d – OB appointment, ultrasound – Potentially can see genders! — Update: no confirmation on genders!
17w6d – Regular OB appointment, genders :: GIRLS!
18w6d – Ultrasound with measurements at the hospital
