Well, first of all, let me tell you that I am expecting! I'm 11 weeks along, and have known since week 4, so I've known for a while now.
This morning I was having some cramping, and then at lunchtime I started bleeding. More than spotting (which I don't do anyhow).
Of course I freaked out, cried, called my Mom, my Husband, my Midwife.
My midwife set up an ultrasound, I took the kids to a friend's house, and off I went.
And I sat. In the radiologist's office for two hours. waiting. Trying not to think about what was probably happening (I didn't want to cry in the waiting room, you know?!!)
Finally it was my turn.
"Let there be a heartbeat!" I though as I lay down on the table.
And then the picture appeared on the screen.
Beating hearts. Two of them!
Two active, kicking, wiggly babies!
All I could say was, "Oh my goodness! Oh my goodness, are you serious?! Really?!!"
I'm excited, and terrified.
I can't keep up with three kids, let alone five.
We'll need to get a mini-van.
It'll be my first hospital birth (but hopefully not my first c-section).
We had D names picked out, but now we need E names as well.
Crazy realizations keep popping to mind.
I don't feel like I've really had a chance to process it, and I'm sure the coming months will be quite an adventure (for that matter, the coming YEARS are likely to be an adventure!).
But there you have it. My roller coaster day. And my big news. times two.
