Are you guys ready for this?
I mean, REALLY ready for this??
I don't know if I'm ready for this!
SO, we had our ultrasound today at the RE (reproductive endocrinologist). We are currently about 6 weeks pregnant. Now for the news. On the ultrasound we saw TWO little babies with hearts just beating away. We are currently pregnant with TWINS!!! Can you believe it??? We can hardly believe it! We just stared in awe at the flicker of the heartbeats on the screen. It was AMAZING!
Well, this definitely explains the early morning sickness! Double the HCG = double the symptoms! And the morning sickness will definitely get worse before it gets better. All for a GREAT cause though!
Of course we are still at risk for miscarriage. I probably won't feel incredibly comfortable that this pregnancy will work until we are into the second trimester. BUT, the risk of miscarriage goes down significantly after you see a heartbeat (or heartbeats!). So, for the time being, we are doing GREAT, and we couldn't be happier! We go back for a repeat ultrasound with the RE in two weeks.
Thanks for the continued prayers and support! We love you all!!!
