Today I went for my first prenatal visit. Everything was going pretty normal, exciting but normal. Pap, exam, talk about when the baby will be dueâ€¦then the best part â€“ultra sound. Watching the monitor I notice two black spots. As â€œhmmp whatâ€™s thatâ€ was going through my head my Doctor said â€œOh Twoâ€. â€œUmm two what?â€ He said well I usually like to ease into this but YOU ARE HAVING TWINS. Huh-what-no really-thatâ€™s funny now stop kidding. He assured me over and over through out the rest of my visit that I was indeed having twins. Even as I write this Iâ€™m unsure it actually happened. I have four pictures of our new little ones as proof. I have looked at them so many times but the disbelief hasnâ€™t let up even a little. I am in shock. I am having twins. I already have a 3 1/2 year old and 20 month old-
OMG Iâ€™M HAVING TWINS! My first reaction was I wanted to write about this, start journaling my experience right away. Then I thought well Iâ€™m not quite 12 weeks (you know that old wives tale) maybe I should wait. I canâ€™t. Itâ€™s going to explode out of me, plus I have so many questions. Our lives changed today. When I first found out I was pregnant it was no big deal. Iâ€™ve done it twice and feel pretty comfortable with the whole process. That was when it was one baby. Two babies, now thatâ€™s a whole new can of worms. Twin pregnancy alone is daunting and oh man what about when they join us on the outside? Iâ€™m trying to put all that away for now and just focus on taking care of myself so I make it to 36 weeks with two plump little butterballs.
As far as being pregnant goesâ€¦itâ€™s been completely different from my first two. With the boys I was sick immediately and my sense of smell heightened to superwoman status. I could tell the soap you used from 8 miles off. This time the all day sick has just started and I think it was because we all got a yuck bug and it threw me off. My sense of smell is normal and mostly Iâ€™m just really hungry. And well pretty darn particular about what I can eat. At the moment itâ€™s mostly honey nut cheerios.
Ok world now you know…please share with me all your infinite wisdom!
