Waiting for Ultrasound Results. UPDATE FINALLY
My Son and his wife are expecting our first grand child. They so far think their due date is Nov. 1. But, she has been changing body shape more than her other friends that are due around the same time and talking with the nurse last week and she thought it would be good to go in today for an ultrasound instead of waiting until the 23 or so of this month.
They are thinking TWINS??? I am thinking its just her body size. She is heavier than the girls she is comparing too, also its normal to be bloated etc. So, we will find out soon. I asked her if she will be OK if its just one yesterday and she said yes, that it will prove her point that she thinks they will have a larger baby than most. She was almost 10 pounds and my son was 9.9 ounces.
Also I am sure her Grandma who raised her knows the news now. The appointment was at 10:30. We seem to be the last to learn things. But, like my husband texted from work to see if I learned anything we would know by now if it was two?? I really don't think so. She is rude at times.
I need to remember she is just 20 years old. She is very much into what others see and think about her. She is really hard to be friends with. She said she just wants to look pregnant and not just FAT...The image thing.
My son is 23 and now working his full time job plus a job in the evenings to cover the extra overtime that he is not getting. He sees what is ahead and wants to have bills paid etc. She works two days a week babysitting. She has no clue how much money and time you would need for twins. It is exciting and special and you adjust to it. But, it also is hard on her body during the pregnancy and afterwards the work load is even more.
She said for a long time she never wanted kids. Now, since they have been trying since Oct. they only want ONE. I think it is her that wants that. Now she is excited about maybe twins?? Its something her friends don't have I guess.
She said at Easter that my son has "already" started helping with the house, cooking, laundry and back rubs. She is not even three months along. I do see him having to do more than the average Dad, its a good and bad thing.
So, when will be get the news? One or Two???
I am so sorry about taking so long to write. Have had a lot going on and no time to get on the computer.
They came by that day at 3:30. My son was getting with his Dad after work to work on his truck. They showed me the pictures of "Peanut" there is ONLY ONE.... (they gave me one of the four photos to put on the fridge!)
Come to find out she did tell her Grandma on the phone there was only one but didn't want to talk about it. They opened up to "me" first which I was so surprised. But, will take it. At the end of the visit she said thank you for listening.
During the "in office" ultra sound done by the doctor, Dr measured the baby to be 7 weeks. She thought and was told before with first day of her last period that her due date was Nov 1 and she would have been 10 weeks. Now, her due date is Nov. 26. They got to hear the heart beat and it was 133 beats a minute or so. She cried most of the day with that news.
She did not get a answer how the dates changed with her last period being the 24 of January. She is confused. I am telling her that the baby is healthy and when she gets the 20 week ultrasound she will know even more and see more. Not to worry. She now does not like her doctor because the dates did not match pretty much. She is thinking she may want some tests done at 20 weeks along and if she turns out to be 23 weeks then its too late. She wants to know everything good and bad.
She had lost 2 pounds when she got checked at that appointment and now she is saying another 5. I don't think that is something to worry about due to she is over weight to begin with. She thinks she should have gained 8 pounds by now etc.
She has two other friends pregnant and due around her time. So, she is compairing to them their steps but everyone is different and body size too. Also she is on the internet. She knows so much what to expect or what could happen. Usually, you only know what the doctor tells you. Its a good bad thing for her.
I am OK with my son being there for his wife, soon to be baby and their life.
Its how she is dealing with things. She does so well working and bragging about the money coming in and then they buy her a car and she quits her job, that her friends are great then they are not because they are more friends with each other and she feels left out. She just wants friends to be only her friend. My sons job cut him back down to a 40 hour week and not the 50-60 hour week so the money is not over flowing like it was and she just quit another little job of babysitting a couple of days. Due to clashing with the MOM.. Personality issues. Each blaming each other. So, the money is good but only pays bills. They need $3600.00 for truck repairs so we are paying it up front and they pay back. They already paid $300 on the balance and the parts are not here yet. They should be over flowing with cash. But, she admits when they have extra it gets spent. we did the same thing.
So, there is a lot going on. Her attitude is the big one. I am good with them being focusied on each other. Its how she expresses things and always takes something exciting like having a baby to make it upsetting Or her freinds are turning against her, .
Thanks for all your replies.
