Surprise! Surprise!

And I do mean “surprise” times two! Well, much to Hubby and I’s surprise, we are having twins! We went for another ultrasound today to confirm the status of the second gestational sack that was questionable at our first ultrasound. And, there is no doubt, there are two growing embryos in there.

Hubby and I are of course very happy, but a little shocked. After some wonky beta numbers and what appeared to be an empty sack at the first ultrasound we definitely had our minds set that we would be having a singleton. Of course, a singleton is much easier to manage and a safer pregnancy, but we’ll get through it. We have wonderfully supportive friends and family that I’m sure will be more than happy to lend a helping hand. Our Moms are over the moon and are ready to move in.

Hubby and I both had tears of joy today, this whole process has been so emotional and it’s hard to believe that all of the heartache, tears, and frustration has finally led to these miracles. We are blessed with so many wonderful things in life and this is just the icing on the cake. It really does feel like this is finally happening when it was meant to. We wanted it to happen so badly each time we went through the whole process, but in reality, those times may have not been the best. If it would have happened any sooner, I would still be working at my old job, not as happy as I am now, and things would not be as settled and as ready for a baby (babies!) as it is now. Also, Hubby and I have only grown closer in this whole process and we’ll need that strength in our marriage when we are stressed, sleep-deprived, and cranky as new and learning parents.

Here is a picture of the little ones!


Our due date is August 10, 2014, but I’m sure the little ones will arrive before 40 weeks! I feel good today and just hope I can hold onto this feeling. Keep the worries away.

    “Forget about what’s happened; don’t keep going over old history. Be alert, be present. I am about to do something brand-new. It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it? There it is! I’m making a road through the desert, rivers in the badlands.” Isaiah 43:18-19.

    Congrats lady! Twins are awesome. They really are.

    The best advice I can give for the pregnancy is give yourself lots of rest. You are growing two babies and that takes a ton of energy, time and resources. Be kind to yourself.
