Okay so were off to our ultrasound and so excited to SEE our baby! We get checked in and I drink all the water I was told too and held in the urge to pee! The ultrasound tech got me all set up with the jelly on my belly and Brad is in the chair next to the bed I was laying on. We had our own personal screen to see what the tech was looking at on her screen.
She talked us through the process…
Tech: “Okay.. I’m going to zoom in here and get a good look at baby.”
We SEE our baby! She paused the pictures and took measurements we saw a lot of this going on…
We were so excited… so crazy to see there was REALLY a baby in there!
Tech: “Looks like to be right around 10 weeks. So your right on track! I’m just going to zoom out now and check on your ovaries… (Zoom out)… Chuckle…Chuckle”
Tech: “Well we were just looking at Baby one the Left…. and this is Baby on the Right…(As she moves the thing over on my belly)… You’re going to have TWO babies!”
Me and Brad: “WHAT?!? TWO BABIES?!?…. TWINS?”
I think we said that like 20 times in the next 5 minutes. I was on the verge of tears (happy tears) but also couldn’t stop laughing. Which presented a problem for the tech that was trying to get accurate readings of both the babies. She got the heart rates of both 167 and 169 and let us know they would be referred to as Baby RT and Baby LT at this point but as I got further along they would change that to Baby A and Baby B. She went on to tell us that as far as she could tell they looked to have their own “everything” so it was likely that they were two separate eggs so…Fraternal. Once she left the room Brad was talking about how I had produced two eggs and proceeded to tell me….
Brad: “ You know I blame this all on you, right?!?”
Me: “Your Welcome?”
He was totally joking but its defiantly something funny I remember from our state of absolute shock. They printed off pictures of the twins and burned a DVD for us and we were done! In the car we immediately started texting our family and friends to ask them to come over to see the ultrasound pictures that we got. We wouldn’t have been so hardcore about making them come to our house THAT night to see but we wanted to see their reaction to the NEW NEWS! Most everyone was able to come over in shifts throughout the night and we took pictures as we told them… A few out of town peps I called as Brad cleaned up the house for our guests.. He’s the best!
We started by showing everyone the pictures of Twin LT the photos the Tech printed off when we thought there was only one in there! AND then after everyone showed their excitement we told them we had a better photo on the TV.. (hooked to our computer) and that is where we had the Ultrasound picture that said TWINS! Here goes all the pictures! Looking back I wish we would have video taped some of this instead. ENJOY!

This sequence is the best “Set” of photos we got (Nice Job Brad, could have also been Mom and Aunt Angies animated expressions!) I couldn’t help but put most of them in… yes… there were more!
It was so exciting to surprise everyone AGAIN with more pregnancy news! I thought it was exciting to tell them we were pregnant but this was a whole new level of excitement. We are ready to tackle everything that comes with twins and are very THANKFUL that God choose us to parent these two! Thanks for joining our journey, it should be interesting!
