I know I shared with you all a few months ago that in November the hubs and I would be starting TTC. There’s a reason that I’ve been missing from blogging since then! I’ve been exhausted, and sick, times TWO!
It was a little earlier than we had planned, due to a miscommunication, but when we found out we were expecting, we were thrilled! I had even joked with the hubs saying I hoped he had enjoyed himself, that we had probably gotten pregnant, but I REALLY was just kidding! I had been just absolutely wiped out for about a week, but I had contributed it to watching a friend’s little boy all week, and planning and packing to go out of town for the weekend. On Thursday, I mentioned to my friend how tired I was, and she asked “Are you pregnant?!” I swore up and down I wasn’t, and just had a lot on my plate. Friday evening we headed to my in-laws for the weekend. All I wanted to do was sleep the whole way there…the hubs must’ve been feeling neglected because he wanted to talk. The WHOLE way there. Sunday afternoon, we headed home, and I was feeling a little nauseated in the car, but chalked it up to a crappy breakfast. By the time we got home, I took a pregnancy test on a whim, expecting it to be negative. Boy was I shocked! I told DH a few days later, on Halloween, and he was just beside himself with excitement. I don’t think the smile left his face for a week!
I found out I was pregnant on October 29, and had my first appointment with the OB on November 28. He did an ultrasound, since I’d previously had the blighted ovum, just to make sure everything looked normal. I was so relieved to hear him say, “Heart rate looks great, high 160’s, very low chance of miscarriage at this point.” I jokingly said, “I’m glad there’s only one!” to which he replied, “I didn’t say that.” I said, “WHAT?” and he repeated himself. Finally, I said, “You’re joking!” and he said “no. I’m not. There’s baby A and there’s baby B.” I must’ve said “Oh my gosh!” over 20 times. That’s all I could say! I was crying (happy/nervous/excited/OMG WHAT?! tears) until I left the office. I debated on calling DH or telling him when he got home, but I told him on the phone. When he picked up, I said, “I love you.” He responded that he loved me too, and “why?” lol. I told him we were having twins and he said “I knew it.” I had no idea…he wasn’t surprised in the least bit!
Like I said, we’re over the moon excited. It did take a few weeks to set in that we were having TWINS, but once it did, we’ve been excited. The kids are thrilled…DS wants boys and DD wants “grills” so I’m hoping for one of each so they’ll both be happy. We have girl names picked out, they’ll be named after my mom and her best friend, but we’re lost on boy names. I’ve enjoyed picking up some newbie dipes, but have a ways to go yet, and thankfully our friends and family are throwing us a shower since we have nearly nothing left from our older kids. We also have to make a choice on whether we want to move, or figure out a way to put an addition on the house, as we only have 2 bedrooms. All of that is unimportant though…we’ve got two healthy kids and two more on the way!
