I am again joining in with way back when-esday at http://twinfatuation.blogspot.com
There have been a couple of mom in my twins group that are pregnant and 1 of them just posted their latest ultrasound picture. This got me thinking about when Tom and I first found out we were having twins. I had some bleeding over the weekend prior to my ultrasound. The on-call OB put me on bed rest for the weekend and since I had an OB appointment that Monday we decided to keep an eye on things and wait for the appointment. Things seemed to calm down and on Monday we went for my regular appointment. My OB checked for the heart beat and had a very difficult time finding it, but thankfully found a very stong heart beat. I think I was about 11 weeks at that point. Since I was only 3 months post-partum with my older son when I found out I was pregnant, my OB believed that I was further along than I thought and sent me for an early ultrasound. We were scheduled to go 2 days later and it was definitely a nerve racking couple of days. We went for the ultrasound and I watched both Tom and the ultrasound tech to see if I could gauge what was going on. I couldn't read either of their faces. Finally the tech said, "I'm never quite sure how to tell people, but it's twins." When she showed me the ultrasound, I could believe how clear it was. We kind of had a clue that this was going to be the result of the ultrasound, but we were still shocked! We were going to have 3 kids and I was due 1 week before my older son's 1st birthday. Unfortunately I didn't make it to my due date, but very fortunately I made it to 35 weeks. My son was only 10 1/2 months when the twins were born.
My Crazy Life!
