Today we had our 6 week 4 day ultrasound and it went better than I ever could have dreamed.
As the technician was doing the ultrasound and taking the pictures she said casually “remember when you were told that you had a higher chance of twins? Well you’re having twins”
My mind went to a million different places, but it kept coming back to “we have 2 babies in my tummy and I already love them so much”. I haven’t stopped smiling since we got the news. We got to see their little heartbeats, and my whole heart filled with joy and love.
When I got up I looked at Tiff and she was crying. I think it was a mix of “omg we’re having two babies” and “how are we going to pay for two babies?” and “I already love them so much”. But when I looked at her, all I could see was her holding our sweet babies, rocking them slowly, kissing their foreheads and being the best damn mother in the world. I can’t wait to raise our children together, it will be the greatest joy of my life.
So now I have to let it sink in. I think it is, slowly but surely. I am going to be a mother. I am going to be a mother to two babies at once. I have never been so happy.
