fast, but I figured it was also very blog worthy our news.
Monday, the 22nd of December, Adam and I went in for our
first ultrasound at 18 weeks. We were both super excited as
most parents would be....
Comfortable on the table with the fun blue gel on my belly,
the ultrasound lady started doing her thing.. Nonchalantly she
said, "Well, there is two in here"! Both of us I think close to the
exact same time said "WHAT?" She continued to show us that
there are indeed two little babies in my ever growing belly.
We are quite certain she assumed we knew we were having twins
as she was just so matter of fact about it.. What a shock that was.
I immediately went into a bit of a worry seeing how sick I have
been, that feeding one baby would have been hard let alone two.
However, she calmed my fears and told us everything looked
great, and they were both the same size and weight.. Each at
8 ounces right now.
So the question most people have, is what are they???
Well we don't really know 100%, and that is the truth.
She took a good look between the legs and did not see anything
on either one of them, but they are quite small still and she said
the next ultrasound in January we would be able to tell for certain.
The other question in mind is if they will be identical twins or not.
Well they are in separate membranes, but there is only one
placenta, so the chance of having identical twins is quite high still.
We will find out more with our next ultrasound. With twins I will
be going for an ultrasound at least once a month for the next little
while, until they see how things are progressing.
It really was a shock for both of us, but we are very excited in many
ways. We walked around that say and for that matter, still just
looking at each other and saying TWINS!!
On another very happy note....
I am feeling SO much better. I think I am over the worst, and it
would make more sense seeing how I have been carrying two that
I have been that much more sick!
It was entirely exciting to be able to eat Christmas dinner,
and keep it all down.
It was all I wanted for Christmas, and I got so much more.
Mine is a life truly blessed.
