Surprise!!!

So, the news has spread REALLY fast!!! 
Blair and I are EXPECTING!!!!  We took the home pregnancy test on July 25th and got a very quick response!  We were 90% sure what the answer would be and it was a pretty special time!

We had our first ultrasound on August 24th.  We had a really good time and the technician was hilarious!  We were joking around with her and at one point before she started, Blair startled her really bad.  So, she began the U/S and showed us a baby.  Well, I have had NO symptoms at all and so I was happy to see that there was actually something in there!  She said yes, there was something there and turned on the heartbeat.  I was in awe...

Well, she said you want to hear it again (and we did)...then she said ok, let me do it all again.

She said "Here is a baby, and the heartbeat....and here is a baby and another heartbeat..."  Well, I was just staring at the monitor trying to take it all in that there was actually a baby in there and I hear Blair say "WAIT A MINUTE".  I looked at him like, 'What is it!'.  Blair said..."SHE SAID ANOTHER"...So I turned to look at the technician and she is dying laughing.  I then said "Blair, she is just picking on you, that is what you get for scaring her."  The technician kept saying "No, there are really 2 heartbeats."  She was so excited and laughing that I really thought she was just getting Blair back.  Finally she looked at us VERY serious and said "This is my job.  I cannot pick about that and I would not pick about that. There are 2 babies in there!  Let me prove it to you.  Baby A has a heartbeat of 180.  Baby B has a heartbeat of 178.  The computer DOESN'T lie!

Ok.  My heart STOPPED and as I am lying on the table looking at the monitor, the next words out of my mouth were "HOLY CRAP!"

I looked over at Blair and he had his head in his hands.  All I could do was laugh.  See, my dad has been picking on Blair since we told him we were pregnant, saying there were twins.  My dad's grandmother was a twin and he has cousins that are twins.  My dad even called on the way to the doctor and said, "Call me when they tell you it is twins."  Of course, when we called everyone, NO ONE BELIEVED us.  It took the pics below to finally convince them.  The technician tried really hard to get them both in one shot, but they wouldn't cooperate.  It was really cute though, watching them move.  I swear Baby A was just dancing!




So, we are having twins!  We were completely shocked but excited along with anxious, nervous, etc.  My wonderful husband looked at me not long after finding out and said "God wouldn't give us more than we can handle."

So, I am excted that I actually will have something to update my blog on!  Stay tuned for all the craziness that will come with the year!  We have our next ultrasound on September 22nd.  I will have to have one a month to be sure they are growing at the same rate!

Rejoice in the Lord, you who are righteous, and praise his holy name. Psalm 97:12

I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. Ephesians 1:16
