HOLY MOLY

Remember how I needed a lot more toilet paper to wrap around than some of you? And how I've been barfing a ridiculous amount?

IT'S TWINS!!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok so I had an OB appointment just a little bit ago. The doc was like, "I think we can just do this through your tummy this time." So I got the ultrasound goo all over my lower stomach and top o' pubes. I kind of thought I saw something funny as he was going around. And then, why yes, yes, that certainly looked like two sacs to me. So I looked at the doctor's face and just watched. I was waiting to say something thinking, "Yes, that's two sacs. But wait, maybe, just maybe, I'm wrong and it's just that he's moving the ultrasound wand around." And sure enough the doc gets a weird look on his face, leans over to read my chart and then asks us, "Ok so the last time you were in was very early, right? Just 5 weeks?" "Yes?" "That explains why I didn't catch the twins on the early ultrasound." And I just started like laughing nearly crying and the doc was still trying to look at the ultrasound so he was like, "Hahah, HOLD STILL!" And I couldn't. Oh man. Then one baby did a full on flip and me and my boyfriend were both like, "WOAH!!!"

So yes, woah. HOLY MOLY.

Not yet. In fact, I didn't find out ANYTHING else but the fact that it's twins and there are two sacs. I was the last appointment of the day so the doctor had to rush out to chase down the nurse to change the paperwork on my genetic test blood test. I have another appointment in three weeks so we have time to come up with a MILLION questions!

Thanks for the congrats! Biggrin

I'm still in total shock. I am a planner and love my lists and everything. I had a beautifully crafted maternity leave plan to give my bosses tomorrow that essentially allowed for birth +/- 2 weeks of the due date. Now uh ... I'll just tell them it's twins and I know NOTHING! :eek:

I have to tell you, I have this hugely strange feeling of relief. With one baby on the way I was really going to try my best to meet all the expectations for the healthiest pregnancy I could muster, strictly breastfeeding, and just doing it all "right," whatever that means. I've always preferred to do things independently and was going to have a hard time accepting help from friends and family. But with two on that ultrasound screen, I'm completely acknowledging my naivete about babies and will accept every offer of help I can get! I told my boyfriend breastfeeding will happen but so will formula supplement. All I can do is my best, and I cannot be a hero! My mom made a huge offer to buy all of the furniture for us. Normally, I would not have been able to accept all that but uh ... "Thanks! That would be great!" We're just jumping straight into a complete family. CRAZY! (And already talking budgets and a vasectomy - ha!)

Awesome! I'm extra concerned about the pregnancy now since it's twins so I just keep reminding myself that it actually does happen -- pregnant with twins should actually result in twin kiddos! The pregnancy and caring for two infants scares the heck out of me but it just seems like it must be SO COOL to be a twin! I'm excited for them.
