No, you're not seeing double.


That's two babies!!

Had my ultrasound this morning.  Dr. Jenkins was hilarious.  Before he started the ultrasound, he was joking that it would be funny if it's twins.  He starts the ultrasound and says "Son of a bitch, it's twins!" 

So, what I know so far:

- They're both measuring 8w2d, which leaves my due date at July 24 (Jonny's birthday).
- Way too early to tell the sexes, but since I'll have an ultrasound at every visit, there's really no way to avoid finding out.
- No way to know yet whether they're fraternal or identical.
- There are two sacs and two placentas.
- Given my history, Dr. J. is not concerned at all about me being pregnant with twins.

That's... really about it.  So far all of my thoughts are about what it's going to be like to have two babies growing in me.  I'm sure I'll move on to freaking about about having FIVE kids soon enough.

Wow.  Just... wow.

We were planning on stopping at four. Guess we're stopping at five!

And yes - the doctor checked several times. There's definitely not another one hiding in there!

Re: and btw
LOL!

I fully intend on making the announcement at Christmas Eve dinner. Bradleah will be there with Jooyoung (his girlfriend/my coworker) and her sister. I figure she can't behave *too* badly in front of company.

We'll see!
