You’re Having Twins!

Sep 21

I was like any other pregnant woman with my third child waiting for an ultrasound to make sure the baby was ok and everything was fabulous.  This was my third child so I had been through this before.

I was eight weeks pregnant and went for the ultrasound.  The appointment started off any other way that a pregnant women feels, you just want to get it over with and go to the washroom. (The amount of water they make you drink before one of these is ridiculous!) 

The technician and I were talking away and I said to him ” My husband and I were joking around and said our luck, we would have twins”.  My husband and I always joked that we could look at each other and get pregnant. 🙂  The technician pointed to the monitor screen and said “One and two” as his fingers touched the screen and said “there are your twins”.    I said “yah right”, seriously thinking he was joking with me.  When I realized he was serious, I didn’t know how to respond.  I laughed and had a tear coming down my face at the same time. I didn’t know what to do!

My sister and her daughter were in the waiting room with my daughter. My son Justin had came in the room with me because he had wanted to see the monitor and be a part of the experience.  As soon as we left the room, he blurted it out as soon as we got into the waiting room.  My sister Chrissy I am pretty sure was in shock too.  (So instead of three children, I was now going to have four)

I gave my sister the keys to drive home because I was afraid I wouldn’t pay attention to my driving.  I called my husband a million times before he finally called me and blurted it out. (He was at work)   Again, I was still in shock and now he was too.  He had figured it may have been something like that because I called him so many times. Either that or I had crashed the truck!

Needless to say, we broke the news soon after to our families and after a few days of getting used to the news, it was all history!

My twin girls are now almost five years old and it has been amazing watching the similarities and differences and the fun they have added to all of our lives.
