It's been ages since I've written anything here. My last post was announcing the expected arrival of baby #3. We have since found out (as many of you know) that we are having twins.
My first appointment with our midwife/ first ultrasound was on November 21. There are not adequate words to describe the feelings and thoughts and emotions that you feel when told you are having twins. My husband and I just kept looking at each other, and then at the screen, with its two little heart beats. Shock, wonder, joy, shock, excitement...there are so many emotions. The shock has mostly worn off, and although I know it's going to be a lot of work (and I am nervous about it) I am excited.

At our first ultrasound with the specialist. 12 weeks, 4 days.

I am almost 15 weeks now. Weeks 5 - 14 were pretty rough, with lots of headaches and "morning" sickness, but I think I am through the worst of it, and am starting to feel better. We are now busy trying to prepare ourselves, and our home, to welcome two babies. Our oldest is especially excited. When we first told him that I was pregnant, he would tell everyone that there were two babies in Mommy's belly. I always corrected him, because I didn't want him to be disappointed, but he was right all along. When we told him that we were indeed having two babies, he smiled really big and said, "see! I told you so" :)
