Happy Thanksgiving!

And Happy Belated Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends...

All is well, pretty much. I woke up with a bad sore throat and cold today, but I'm off from work and have been able to rest all day. H and I saw the peri this morning, and he said the babies are looking good, although they are really too small to know much about them at this point. In 4 weeks, at our next appointment, he said we'll learn all sort of things about them, including their sex. It was funny how he said we'd know so much more about them, as if we'd find out their favorite color or something. They didn't look much bigger than 3 weeks ago, but they had some nice looking spines! They kinda sparkle. So, it was a good way to start the holiday weekend, other than being sick.

As far as the spotting, the peri said the reason is that baby b's placenta is completely on top of my cervix. The old placenta previa I've read so much about. He said it's perfectly normal with twins this early, and he'll let me know when it corrects itself. Until then, I have to be mindful of the old cervix. Sorry H, no real action this month...

On the pink ladies front, my doctor friend spoke with an oncologist she knows for me, and she said that IBC speeads really fast and is painful and itchy. I'm not in pain or itchy. Just the same, the pinkness remains and at least now I have a oncologist I can go see if I want. She said she'd be happy to see me whenever I want.
No word on my cousin yet.

I'll be out of town all of next week, so it may be awhile before I post again. Will be checking in on other blogs, though! Hope everyone is doing well.

That sounds like good news to me!

I hope you feel better soon.

I'm so glad the spotting thing is cleared up and has a reasonable explanation. That is never easy.

Are you going to find out the sex?! I'm surprised at how many people can resist it!

What a wonderful update that should help set your mind to a little ease!

Sorry for your sore throat, but I am glad that your other issues look to be resolved (or resolving)!!
