Soooo... it's been quite a busy couple of months, so I guess it's time to catch everyone up! As I mentioned before, Chris and I have been trying to have a baby for a little over a year now. On the first day of band camp (why does everything BIG always have to happen during BAND camp!?!?), I decided to take a test, just in case... I like the digital tests, so I don't second-guess myself on how to read the thing. As always, I expected for it to read "NOT pregnant", as it did for months & months. Well, it was quite a shock when there was a big blank where it would have normally said "NOT"! I ran (yes, I ran, even though I know I'm not really supposed to run) down the hall to tell my husband, and all I could say was, "I don't know if you can handle this right now, but HERE," and I showed him the proof. He gave me the biggest hug ever, then our life began to change.
2 weeks ago, I went for my first sonogram. Dr. McNabb (thank you, Christina, for introducing me to a great doctor!) had a peculiar look on his face, and so did the nurse. This made me VERY nervous, so I said, "What!?! Just tell me!" So, he said, "Well... there's one sack... and there's ANOTHER!" He couldn't actually see 2 babies at that point, so at the time, we just assumed it was one healthy baby, and PERHAPS a baby (or something else).
I just went back on Tuesday, and sure enough, it's TWINS!! I think Chris & I are still in shock, and honestly, I think we'll be in shock until the babies turn 21... This is such a miracle, and I just can't believe what God has in store for us! Chris is going to be a wonderful father, just as he is already a fabulous husband. I just can't wait to see what life will hand us--HOPEFULLY, it will be two healthy and happy babies.
MUCH more to come on this!! I promise to keep you posted! :)
