The First Ultrasound!

It's always the most exciting ultrasound (to me anyways) to see the first picture of your little baby, hear the heart beat, and find out your due date. Today was that day for me. I went alone because my husband was working and I decided to leave the kids with my mother. I should have had someone go with me.

During the beginning of the ultrasound everything went well, for the most part. It was hard to see anything on the monitor so she asked if she could do a vaginal one. (I wanted to see my baby so have at it lady!) So I went and got changed as she set up the ultrasound. We begin the process and BAM the nurse says to me, "You're having twins!" *silence* "Oh Shit" I said. (Maybe I should have kept that comment to myself?) I was shocked...literally shocked. She showed me the monitor and she was correct, two babies were my belly...looking at me. 

I was happy, they were healthy.
I was surprised, "it" was a "they". 
I was/am scared, can I handle TWO at once?!
I was/am nervous, that I will be so overwhelmed. 
I was sad, that there wasn't one. (but two is twice the blessing)

I will, cry a little.
I will, be able to handle it. (after some practice)
I will/do, love them with my entire heart. 
I will, protect them.
I will, make sure their siblings take care of them(:

So as of right now my due date is May 29th, 2014. 
I am/will be at high risk (because there are two babies).
 The doctors will do ultrasounds to keep an eye on them to make sure they are growing the best they can(:

We are excited and scared at the same time! Big brother Luke and now Big sister Madison are excited as well. Luke keeps saying he wants to sing "Veggie Tales" to the babies and Madison kisses my belly. I know that they will keep their siblings safe and love them a bunch. 

I have a regular doctors appointment next week and will be speaking to my doctor more about twin pregnancy and birth. An update will be posted after that as well, so keep an eye out!
