Today was ultrasound day. 7 weeks pregnant.
Yes you read right. Our two little embryos decided to make themselves right at home.
The sight of those two tiny heartbeats in 2 separate sacs will stay with us forever. Both Tim and I got teary, and although we knew it was a possibility, we never thought twins may actually become a reality.
I've had normal pregnancy symptoms these past few weeks; tired, tired, tired, and some night nausea but nothing more than I felt with Cole. Secretly I hoped that I would be lucky enough to experience twins, and I have always wanted 3 children. The family is beyond excited but very cautious. I am still in the early stages and although the miscarriage rate is quite low for IVF at this stage, it is still a concern and I respect their reservations.
I cannot reserve my emotions..... so I say YES YES YES, we did it, we really did it!!!!!!!
Ok, so beyond my excitement comes a real sense of fear.
Two babies in one belly. Can I do this, will they be healthy, will I be ok? Tim will be 3 months into a new job, articling at a CA firm and working alot of hours. Cole will have to adjust to 2 babies, his 5 year reign of the castle will end.. will I be strong enough to handle all that comes with twins?
I am open to any comments, websites, support you can offer. Let me learn from you or anyone you know who has multiples. I am new to this and for someone like me, that creates anxiety.
Thank you for sharing this journey with me, it was well worth every ache and pain, heck we got 2 for the price of 1 here! A true Winnipeg deal!
In all seriousness, those who know Tim and I can attest that we have longed to be parents again for 3 years. THANK YOU (you know who up there) for making our dreams a reality.
