So finally after I have been anxiously waiting the ultrasound its here. We arrive at Birmingham OBGYN @ 9:30 a.m. ready and sweaty (well I'm sweaty). I head on back, pee in my cup, and start the wait. I didn't have to wait long until some sweet unsuspecting Ultrasound Tech called us back. She wasn't someone I had seen before so I apologized to her beforehand. Jeff and I are a little animated if you can imagine that! I laid down on the table and waited to hear that sweet heartbeat. I didn't want to look because I was afraid something was wrong. So Jeff did as he always does huddle over the table and machine and point at the screen and ask constant questions. With all this happening I wasn't really paying attention and then I heard from Jeff, "Is that two sacks?" I snapped my head around so fast that I think I broke something. The tech laughed and said "Uh Huh"! WHAT WHAT WHAT WHAT! You are shitting me were my exact words, then I'm going to throw up was next. And I was sure there was a mistake, but nope, two sacks, two babies, two heartbeats. TWINS! Yup you read this right. I am having twins. Fraternal Twins will be making their appearance in about 30 weeks. One good thing about a double pregnancy, its shorter. Let's not hope too short. Keep us in your prayers that for sure! We are excited, still in shock, but excited. Pictures of Baby A & Baby B will come soon.

Soooooooooooooo.....I am pregnant again! Whoops would be the word Jeff & I use about this little peanut. I am referring to "Baby 2010", or so I am calling it for now. I am due October 11, 2010 with who knows what! This is all very much a surprise obviously. Story? Yes, there is always a story...
I have been having some pain issues and went to visit the OBGYN a couple of weeks ago. They did a ultrasound and also checked my progesterone. We were going to start trying to have a baby this spring. If you didn't know, with AK I had to take Clomid which is a fertility drug. So my wonderful OB (Dr. Christine) wanted to check my progesterone to see if I would need it again this go round. She called me the following day with my results. My progesterone was amazing, as she put it. "Amazing", huh. I was confused. She looked back into my record and realized the only time my progresterone levels had ever been amazing was when I was pregnant with AK. So, she instructed me to take a pregnancy test. Surprise Surprise-2 lines! Ahhh. How did this happen. We weren't even trying. So the Clomid rx went out the window and so did the beer and wine-boo.
I found out on my sister's birthday and Jeff and I were headed to dinner. When he got home I had a beer can in the fridge with a piece of paper taped on it saying "I'm Pregnant". I told him I had a surprise for him in the fridge and to go check it out. He came back in the room, beer top popped, and I quote..."NO Shit"! It was hilarious. We looked at the pregnancy test together and then looked again and again and again. What news, huh?!?
So far, its been about the same as the 1st time. Tired, hungry, tired, hungry. I am already showing and I am just 5 weeks pregnant. This isn't going to be pretty at all!
