We were able to ask a few questions...
I ask if it was normal to have gained only one pound. He said it was and ask how active I had been. For those of you who know I haven't been active at all. I've felt too pathetic :) He did tell me I could return to normal gym activity (after I explained what all I do at the gym).
I told him my belly had grown 4 inches and that's why I was a little concerned about my lack of weight gain...he eyed me and said "I don't recommend women carrying twins measure their belly's. There will be some numbers that come up soon enough you will not want to see." I laughed hard and he said, "Just let me measure you when you come in."
Next I ask what my doctor visit schedule would be. He said it would be every four weeks until week 20. Then it will be every two weeks until week 26(most likely) and then it will be every week. I'm already 12weeks...I'll be going every other week after only two more visits.
I ask him what the process would be to test the babies for Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT). I ask if a geneticist would be present when the babies are born and if they could get tested right away.. FYI: CMT is a nerve disorder that runs in my family. My Grandmother, Mother, Brother and Sister all have it. I have never shown any signs of the disorder but I have never had the test done to see if I have the disorder. He said when carrying twins he will send us to a specialist in Little Rock for a level 2 sonogram. This will be a more in depth test to check the health of the babies due to higher risks with multiples. At this time a geneticist will be present and will let us know more about what to expect.
I am so sorry we don't have any footage. I wish I could telepathically send you the images I have stored in my head. They were so very cute jumping and bouncing around. All that matters, though, is the doctor said everything looks wonderful and the babies look very healthy!!! I'll be the full 12 weeks on Monday so I will take a pic of my belly and post it. Get ready because it has GROWN!!!

Here's the video. It's really long so don't bore yourself with the full 12+mins. Nothing of interest happens after the first 5mins. Both babies had a heart rate of 146. The second baby, Baby B's, heart beat was louder and more powerful. At least it sounded that way to Corey and I. Maybe the wand was just closer to it than BabyA.

I haven't posted since I left for my first trip and that is just not right. I would have but I only had a 36hr break in between and when I arrived from the second trip we moved in less than 18hrs. It was crazy and to make matters worse the telephone/internet people never showed up on July 9th to install our service(the day we moved). Finally after 4 days of calling and talking to people that didn't know how to help me and having them call me back to tell me they still didn't know how to help me I received a phone call letting me know it could be 90days before we found out if we could get service. I made it very clear we were new construction when I made the call for service on June 5th and was reasured it would not be an issue because we were in an establised area ( YEAH RIGHT). UHHHHHHH!!!!!! Anyway....I contacted the local cable company last Thursday and they sent out a tech on Friday who performed a spec call to see if would could get service through them and the are "supposed" to be here tomorrow to install internet and phone lines....we'll see. I am currently using Brooke's air card, which does NOT work in the house along with any cell phone because of the nice reflective stuff on the roofing material that cuts down on the utilities LOL :) I have a cell phone booster, but I'm waiting on the electrician to install it, because we have the set up for it to be ran through the entire house, but I don't have clue how to do it. Because I am having to sit outside just to post this, I am unable to upload pics and all the other stuff I want to.
So....prepare yourselves...the next posting will be VERY LONG and VERY INVOLVED.
WE ARE MOVED IN...UNPACKED...AND DECORATED!!!!!!!!! :)

The above picture is a close-up of the retaining walls. They are covered in the same flagstone the column bases and fireplace hearths are capped in.
The above pictures are of the Great Room. One is it being painted and the other is the finished product.
This picture is of the Powder Bath. The blue didn't photograph well it's not a bright/baby blue...it's more a aqua/Mediterranean/deep blue.
