Yesterday was my first OB appointment, and it went really well. I got to have my first ultrasound. Actually I got to have two of them. Because you'll never guess what we saw on the first one.

two babies.

That's right. There's two Boogers in there! Twins!

I never in my life thought that this would happen. I knew that my Gran had miscarried twins before my mom was born, but I never really thought that it would skip a generation. Umm. Believe me. It really does. :o)

There's a lot of unknowns, but I know that this is a God Thing. Sometimes God has a really wicked sense of humor, doesn't He? :o)

Oh, and both of the babies are healthy. We think that they're fraternal twins, which is supposed to be safest because they have their own little spots. We'll know more next month. They were so tiny this time that all we saw was their heart beats and blood flow. I was told that I'm 6 weeks 4 days along, but again it's hard to tell because they're so small. I guess they're even smaller than what one booger would be, although I'm not sure.

The hub has promised me that we'll find faster internet somewhere tomorrow, and I can actually do some research and update my profile.

It still hasn't sunk in yet. I guess it's something that I'll process a little at a time. But in the meantime I'm so not going to feel guilty for the five pounds that I've gained since finding out I'm pregnant. And I'm definitely not going to worry about my mandatory afternoon naps. I'm sleeping for three now. :o)

I hope you're all doing great. I wish that I could check in, but my browser shuts down everytime I try to use one of my links. Hopefully I'll stop by tomorrow and see what ya'll have been up to. I miss you and hope you're having wonderfully OP days!!

I would have fell over had they told me I was having twins!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! This is totally awesome!!!

Isn't it funny how god works? Isn't it odd to think of how you and the hub decided to go off the pill and he got a church and all of this happened?!? Yes, I agree 100% with you--this is such a god thing. Such a GOOD thing! I'm so overjoyed for you, you have no idea.

Definitely nap. You will need it. When I was pregnant with DS, I napped EVERY DAY for the first trimester--most of the time 3 hours a day. And then still slept all night long just fine. But you have TWO to sleep for compared to my one!

Holy cow--wow! I'm just in shock! When you guys do something, you do it 200% don't ya?!? ;) Congrats--and take care of yourself!

CONGRATULATIONS!!! I am soooo happy for you & a little, tiny bit jealous! God does work in mysterious ways but the steps of a righteous man are ordered by the Lord so - you know that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

Make sure you rest and take it easy......baking 2 twinkies is tough work!

WOW! Congratulations! That is just wonderful! Twins will be so much fun and I have to say that not already having other children will be a huge advantage because you'll be able to devote all of your attention to them. I am so excited for you!

Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh... (and that's exactly what I said over & over at my first ultrasound when I found out I was having twins.) I know I don't even know you, but that is so excited!! Twins are such a blast. I would love to have twins again, I'm serious. You're in a whole different league now. ;)

Tina said...

Wow, that's INCREDIBLE! Twins are amazing (I don't have any but have spent countless hours helping with my bff's). Congratulations! What an amazing act of God's kindness and humor. :))
