Shock and Awe!!

We had a quick ultrasound today to verify the due date and look what we saw:

There are two!!


The doctor can tell from the ultrasound that they are fraternal twins rather than identical-- meaning they each came from their own egg and they have their own sacs and placentas. They were both very active and moving all around-- kicking each other in the heads. They are healthy and doing well. And mom is too. This explains so much. No wonder I am twice as hungry, twice as tired, and larger at this point than with the others. It all makes so much sense now. :)

I am at 13 weeks and they are due on February 18th. Hmm. . . unlike the other pregnancies I don't think I will go overdue with this one. :)

My prayers are with you as you are making the mental adjustment. These two spirits could not be coming to better parents!

Phelps Family said...

Wow! What a shock!! Congratulations! I have to say I'm glad it's you and not me because I'm not sure I could handle that mentally. Knowing you, you will do great and these special spirits are coming to a great home! I wish you the best with this pregnancy and that you can carry them as long as possible so that they can be healthy and strong when they arrive.

Shock and Awe is definitely the appropriate title. We hope and pray things go well for you. Let us know if we can do anything for you from here!

Everyone should have twins!!!
I know exactly how you feel not sure if you should laugh or cry (I did both).

You have many wonderful things to look forward to. Twins are twice the fun, work, stress, blessings, diapers, laundry and wonderful momments.

Holy crime-a-knee!!! That's awesome! I've never seen an ultrasound of twins! That's beautiful! Congratulations!

Oh, I'm so excited for you! Twins are amazing and fun, but it's very different than having just one. What a great surpise, though I'm sure a bit overwhelming. :) has a great forum where you can talk to other multiple moms due the same time you are and ask millions of questions. Let me know if you decide to sign up there.

Jode, so happy for all of you. Twins are twice the fun. And maybe a good chance for a girl. Hope I didn't jinx anything.
