(19wk 6days) The ultrasound was fine. Both babies are doing fine and weight 10oz each. They were moving a lot and I think Baby B had the hiccups. Then I had to get the amniocentesis done. I was scared of course but I figured that if I didn't watch what the doctor was doing, and just focused on the ultrasound screen it would be okay. I was wrong. It hurt so bad. At first it was like getting a shot - just stung a little. Then as the needle went into my uterus it hurt so bad. I had to do everything in my power to not jump up off the table. I yelled but not really loud and tears were even coming down. And with all that pain... I had to do it again. The second time wasn't as bad but still very bad and painful. I got to go home right away. After I was in the car I got a kick from one of the babies. The strongest kick I have every felt even from Rhiannon and Konnor. I'm sure it hurt more because I was very sore. But I told Brian that the babies were mad about the amnio. I had a little cramping but it hurt a lot and I was sore all day. We will find out the results within 14days. I am not worried about getting bad results, but I am looking forward to confirming the genders.
