The ultrasound appointment was set for 8am on Wednesday, we got up and got ready for the appointment and our freakin' van wouldn't start......we have never had problems with our van, ever....and now it won't start?? Luckily it just needed a jump start....(Ova just put in a new battery and I guess the wires weren't tightened enough)....but I was glad that was all that was wrong and not something major. By the time we got the van running again it was already like 8:05....I tried calling the Dr's office to see if I could still come, but they don't open until 8:30, just the ultrasound tech comes in early.....I told Ova to just take me anyways and I would see if they could see me (I was really anxious! haha) They told me I could wait and they'd squeeze me in, but they didn't know how long the wait would be. I think I waited for about an hour.
When the ultrasound tech came in, she wanted to know how far along I was. I told her 10 weeks. Then she started with the ultrasound......she was really cool and we were laughing because she's our same age and she went to Granger high school and hung out with all the poly's from there.....since Ova went to Hunter, they were rivals, so we joked a little about that......I told her about my dream and she said that was weird because she thought she saw two in there......WHAT?? She asked if there are twins in either one of our families and we both said no......it got quiet for a minute and then she put this on the screen:
I've always dreamed of having twins....I don't know why, but I just think it's so cool....I just never thought it would actually happen to me. I'm overwhelmed and shocked and so so happy and excited. That would explain why I've been so super duper sick this time and with my other 3 kids I was fine.
The ultrasound tech said it was good that I got a ultrasound so early because she was able to see, and tell for sure that they are fraternal twins because they have their own separate sacs and their own separate homes. Baby A's heartbeat was 148 and Baby B's was 172. They were both moving around and wiggling a lot. Fraternal twins means it could be 2 girls, or 2 boys, or one of each. We'll probably get to find out the sex of the babies in a month or so....but for now we're still trying to wrap our minds around the thought that there are actually two in there.
And how weird that I actually dreamed it a couple weeks before.
Right after we left the Dr's office, we couldn't stop laughing.....we started calling our families to tell them the news, and actually the first person I called was my friend Kassie.....she's one of my friends that are pregnant right now with twins, and we joked when I first found out I was pregnant that she was going to send me the twin vibe.....I just had to call her and tell her it worked.....hahaha
Ova called his parents and brothers and sister and I called mine. Everyone was so shocked and so happy.
I cried the rest of the way home. Feeling so overwhelmed but so so so BLESSED!
