Seeing double . . . (updated with details)

yeah, i didn't believe it either. 

Ok so i found out i was pregnant in the end of september. I was going to tell people at Halloween time by wearing a t-shirt that said "i grow people, what's your super power?" It was cute, but since Halle burned her hands my plans changed. Anyway i didn't know how i was going to let all of you know, and then i went to my doctors appointment yesterday. 

Now Russ and i always think we are pregnant with twins. While i was waiting at the appointment Russ called me (he couldn't come because he had to teach a class down at BYU, and come on, it's our third so whatever) anyway he calls and says so is it 2? I told him i hadn't even seen the doc yet, and i would have called him. Anyway the doc walks in and i explain to her that was my husband and he was all worried that it's 2. I told her we always do that. 

She does the exam and tells me that i feel and look normal and she thinks there is only one. She gets out the ultrasound machine and the first shot is what you see above. I didn't process that it was 2 until she said, "oh you were right, there are 2 WHAT!!!, ARE YOU SERIOUS??? No it can't be. The shot above is of both of their heads. Then she proceeds to show me each of their little bodies and heart beats. That was incredible and i am so sad russ wasn't there  to see it. I was still in shock so i didn't  enjoy it as much as I should have. 
Here are each of the babes profile of their bodies. 

Needless to say i was totally overwhelmed and in shock. I have always feared twins and never thought Heavenly father would give them to me. But i guess He knows better.  I called Russ right away and he obviously didn't believe me, we had been joking about it since we found out i was pregnant. I sent him a pic of the ultrasound and he kind of freaked out. He got loud and said, i am going to call Jen first. (his cute sister who has twins) then he called me back and was still not sure i had told him the truth, he was asking if we actually saw 2 heart beats, honestly, he is such a guy. Then he said, "i have to call my mom" and basically hangs up on me. I called my parents and they were in shock too.  We are all in shock around here, but excited as well, it is pretty special. 

I feel like i have been blessed with 2 incredible children who sleep through the night, sleep for 12 hours, and one is a little mommy herself and my Miller is my sunshine who brightens my day. they will be the best older brother and sister of twins i could ask for. OH man i am going to have 4 kids under 4. it will be crazy but wonderful too. 

My due date before it was twins is May 30, so i am guessing the will come end of April /May of next year. I have been super lucky with the sickness, i don't throw up, i  just feel like i want to all the time. And have been super tired.  Other than that i am doing well. I will keep you posted.

So my mom told me this amazing news today after walking with your mom...oh our gossiping mamas... Anyway, my jaw dropped! Mostly because I'd have no clue how I'd react if the doc said, "oh there are two in there!" Congratulations! We wish all the best for you guys! So happy you've been feeling well.
And ditto Sarah's comment...what's in the Highland graduating class of 2000 water?? My oh my!

Anie said...

DANG!!! I also had a jaw dropper this afternoon as Lindsay Bell was telling me about her "friend" who just found out she was having twins. We were both freaking out thinking about how crazy that would be with our 2 and 4 year olds. I wasn't sure who her "friend" was until I checked FB tonight! HA! I guess Linds forgot that we're ALL mutual friends!!!! :) But even crazier that I know it's you guys now!! Congratulations! At least we'll have a baby the same age as your twins! Fun for when we finally get to see you guys again! :)

Laura said...

Twins. I still can't believe it, even though we both were thinking it was going to be two for a long time! I'm so so happy for you! You can totally do this! Like you said, your kids are so good and will be great little helpers. I just wish I was going to be around longer to help and get to know these kids.

lauren ann said...

Really so exciting. 2 for 1- sounds like a good deal to me. Can't wait for the updates

Lani said...

I am still in shock after you called me but I am so excited for you and Heavenly Father knows you and knows you can handle this. I forgot to tell you that when I asked Connor what he wanted to do today he said play with Miller. I thought that was cute and then someone was parked in front of our house and he said oh Lacey and went to try to open the front door. Anyway I love you sister and I am so excited for you guys and I can't stop smilling fr some reason.

dave+candace said...
