This past Thanksgiving will remain quite unforgettable as this is the one we surrealistically told family and friends that we are having not just one baby this June but two! Talk about a shocker. It was only my second routine check-up where we gleefully listened to the heartbeat (yes, just one!) for the first time until the Dr. mentioned oh so casually that I measured much further along than my mere 11 1/2 weeks and that it was possible that I was carrying twins. We stumbled across the hall where she got us right in for a sonogram so as to dispell any twin rumors when low and behold, two little creatures appeared on the monitor side by side, one comfy on it's back, the other not so comfy on it's poor little head. But there they were none the less, moving their tiny hands, sending G and I into a wide-eyed shock. I did however suffer a bit of a laughing fit as I do when I'm out of control nervous. I mean, does this really happen to people in real life? I thought it only happened to 40 somethings in Hollywood taking fertility drugs. In this case it runs in the family as my Grandmother was a twin. She would be beyond happy to know this. We are in fact beyond happy as well. It's funny how quick you can get used to an idea that you have no control over. Now we can't imagine not having two and are in major anticipation of meeting them. I'm also in major anticipation of finding perfectly fantastic fabric for the curtains in their room just as soon as we know what combo we're getting. All we know is that there is some major love coming our way.
