AND A GIRL!!!!!!!!!!
Well, we just experienced the shock of a lifetime this morning. We went in to our ultrasound appt at 11AM and the tech started rubbing the gel on my belly with the wand. Brief images flashed across the screen in front of us. Suddenly, she turned off the screen and looked at us and said, "Ummm...is this your 1st ultrasound?" We said, "Yeah." She said, "Well, I have some interesting news for you two.....you're having TWINS!!!" HOLY COW!! Wesley immediately started screaming, "I knew it!!! I knew it!" and gave me a high five! I just laid there on my back laughing my head off, and Zoe started to cry! It was the craziest thing I have ever experienced. The tech proceeded to conduct the ultrasound and showed us that Baby A is a girl. We were excited to have another Sugar Baby and celebrated with another high five. Then she moved on to Baby B, and lo and behold, for the first time in my family's reproductive history, there was complete plumbing for a boy perfectly visible!!!! I about rolled off the table. I was laughing so hard & crying, the lady had to stop the procedure for several minutes. Finally, we got a handle on ourselves and tried to come to grips with the new reality of our family of five. Wow. What a blessing, What an awesome resposibility! What a TRIP!!! I feel so much better now knowing that there are 2 babies in this big beautiful belly. I thought I was going crazy yesterday when I felt the baby move for the first time, once in my lower left hip area and then again a few minutes later in my upper right ribs. I thought, "Wow. This kid can really swim!" But now I know, it was a kick & counter kick. Our daughter - Baby A is in the lower left part of my uterus & our son - Baby B is in the upper right. They both have their own sacs, their own placentas, and so far, everything looks perfectly normal.....just times two!!! No wonder I have been so hungry!
