7 Weeks and Big News

We had our first u/s today and it went good. Actually really good. We are having TWINS! Here is what happened:

They started the u/s and the tech told us that it would take a few minutes for her to get all pictures and measurements. So she starts. And keeps measuring. And keeps looking at the screen. After about 5 minutes (that felt like 20) I start getting nervous and my leg begins shaking and tears start forming in my eyes because I figure that if its taking this long, she probably cant find the baby or the sac is empty. When the nurse looks at me and sees the tears, she gives me a huge smile and puts up two fingers. TWO! I look at Dan and put up my own two fingers but he doesnt seem to get it until the tech flips the screen towards us and we see it. Two beautiful sacs with two beautiful babies. I bawled my eyes out and thanked God for this wonderful blessing!




The shock is still setting in but we are so very excited! I just cant believe this is happening!




Here is my u/s picture (for some reason it scanned in reverse, i dont know) and then my 7w belly pic. Although the u/s tech thinks I might be closer to 7w2d but they will try to date me better at my next u/s in 2 weeks.



How far along: 7w-ish

Total weight gain/loss: Im down a total of 3 lbs

Sleep: I've been pretty tired again this week but have been trying to stay up until 9.

Best moment this week: u/s- hands down

Food cravings: Food has gotten a bit better this week. I am craving watermelon and rotisserie chicken. We had both today!

Have you bought any baby stuff: Still nothing. I looked for a cute baby picture frame today to put our u/s picture in but I couldnt find one.

What I miss: Nothing right now, Im just really happy

What I am looking forward to: Showing our family the u/s picture

Weekly Wisdom: Document as much of your pregnancy as you can. I already like going back and reading the first couple days of my pregnancy journal, its cool to see how things change, even in 3 weeks!
