OB Appointment, 8 wks-2 days!

Hi All! Sorry for not posting in so long, but I have been so nervous & talking about the pregnancy makes me even more nervous....I am scared.
Today I had my first appointment with the OB, well really the Nurse Practitioner. They are the same ones from last time, so they know my history & everything, which is really comforting. When the NP came in, she said, "I'm so glad to see you are back here again, how are you doing"? I started bawling of course & babbling on about how nervous I was. She said she would just do a quick U/S to make me feel better. They have a portable Vaginal one that they can just pop into the rooms with now, how awesome is that? Well both babies hearts were still beating away & it looks like they have alien heads & arm paddles now. She said things look great & the heartbeats were very strong. She said if she has to hold my hand through this whole pregnancy she will & we can do an U/S anytime I want. She said they will do a scheduled one at 12 weeks, 16 weeks & they will send me to the Perinatal Specialist for the 20 week one because of twins & what happened with my previous pregnancy. I will see her again in 2 weeks & finally my OB in 4 weeks. I see Dr. L one last time for an U/S this Friday at the Fertility Clinic.
On the symptom front, I don't have any morning sickness, I was feeling a little nauseous until they reduced my E*strace down to 2 pills per day, now nothing. That's partly why I have been so nervous, but my NP said about 20 percent of women just don't get MS. I have been really tired though & my back aches on & off, other than that nada. The NP said my uterus is already measuring at 10 weeks. She also said the chances of me losing a twin at this point are slim due to their growth & heart rates.

I need to relax & quit being so psychotic. Things are good right now, thank God.

Yay, you guys! How exciting! Please be thankful you don't have any morning sickness - seriously! And remember what you said before, that you wished you would have enjoyed your time being pregnant more than just worrying all the time. Everything looks great, just focus on the positive! Are you going to find out the sexes when you can? I hope so! SO exciting!!!!!!
