I just wanted to announce that we're expecting! I've been meaning to announce it for a while now, but I just haven't. It's twins..identical twins due sometime in October.
I'm still getting over the shock! No, there aren't any twins in my family. When I had that first early ultrasound and was told that there were two babies, I'd like to say that my first thoughts were joy and thoughts of matching outfits. No, my first thought was panic. How many car seats can my minivan hold? That's just one of the questions that flew through my mind in the space of seconds. I knew in that moment that any hope that I had had for a boring routine pregnancy were over. As it stands, I now have three doctors and of course, I'm going to be monitored very closely. I'm trying not to give into the anxiety, but it's difficult as I remember my pregnancy with baby Tess and how on several occasions, we thought we were going to lose her. No, pregnancy isn't as easy as it used to be. I've been exhausted for weeks now and I'm hoping that now that I've transitioned into the second trimester that I will start to feel somewhat normal again.
I am extremely blessed even if I feel completely overwhelmed right now.
