..bun in the oven chronicles..

Well, today certainly was a crazy day. We had our first doctor's appointment. They said they were going to do the ultrasound first, and it felt like it took forever to get us in a room. I know it was really only a few minutes, but I was super nervous and excited all at the same time. I got in and laid down, and Jeff sat in the chair next to me. On went the gel (which was surprisingly warm!) and then the tech went to work. I knew something was up when the first words out of her mouth were, "Oh my." So then I start straining to see the monitor, and she asks, "So this is your first?" And I'm thinking good grief what is it? Well, have a look. (Click on it to see the whole thing)

That's not two pictures of one baby :D We're having twins!! I couldn't believe it. But it's really weird, because I've kinda had that feeling all along that it might be more than one. So super excited! :) She said that both babies looked good as far as size, and that their heartbeats were really good.

Here's Baby A, waving for its closeup :)

And here's a profile of Baby B. I just love its little belly :)

Yeh, so we're excited, and freaked out a little, and totally on cloud 9 a little too. I mean, one was enough to be happy about. Two is just great, and sorta insane :D The nurse said I'm like the 5th set of twins they've seen in the last month, but I'm the only one who got them without fertility drugs. I will go back in 6 weeks for another ultrasound, and the tech said we should get to find out genders then. She also said that based on what she could see as far as the sacks they were in, that they're probably fraternal. That makes me happy, because that means it could be a boy and a girl. That would be awesome :) But honestly, we just want healthy!

  7. Congrtulations, I have twins too! I must say though I was more than freaking out when I saw my ultrasound, I had never even touched a baby I dont think. I survived though and they will be 30 this year! Two girls, 7lb5oz and 7lb3oz !
