TWINS!!!!

So...yeah....nothing can prepare you to see this on an ultrasound...seriously! This ultrasound was taken over a month ago and we have been in shock ever since. I thought the Doctor was pulling some sort of April Fool's Joke...but nope....no joke, this is for real....TWINS!!!!
We were surprised by the pregnancy alone...but blessings come when you least expect them. Just a couple days after finding out I was expecting I started getting sick...really sick. I couldn't believe that I was just a few weeks along and throwing up all the time. I told Jacob that my pregnancies must get worse with each one. A few weeks later I was beyond tired, and could barely pull myself out of bed. Because it was a surprise pregnancy it took a couple months to get insurance figured out...and man am I glad we did!
At 12 weeks we finally got into the Doctor and he decided to do an ultrasound and low and behold two heads! Jacob and I were shocked and speechless...but Aaron looked up at the screen and let out a low "ROAR"...it was hilarious!
We are pretty sure they are fraternal twins, so that means they can be boy/boy, girl/girl or boy/ girl.
I like to keep my pregnancies a secret until about 20 weeks...but about 2 weeks ago my tummy popped out and there ain't no hiding it anymore! So we had to break the news. Even though I am 17 weeks in this picture...I feel more like I am about 6 months pregnant...I'm already having a hard time breathing and sleeping...I feel like this is going to be one long pregnancy!
Funny story: Kaylie has been asking me for a baby sister for about a year, and then a few months before I got pregnant she told me that I was going to have two babies at the same time a boy and a girl....so I guess we will see how accurate this little four year old is. As you can see in the photo....she is ecstatic about mommy having two babies! She keeps asking me every morning about the babies.
My grandma (dad's mom) had twins and so naturally she was one of the first people I contacted and she told me that on her side alone there are 13 sets of twins! There are also twins on my mom's side...so I guess we had it coming!
Even though I hate posting pictures of myself this is definitely one pregnancy that I will keep track of photo wise. I haven't gotten very big in the past...so I guess we will see just how big I get...I am suppose to gain 50lbs...and so I am eating around the clock.

Holy cow, that's amazing! I was wondering if it was brought on by fertility drugs or something...but it looks like it was just the opposite! Surprise! I know you'll do great as a mom of twins. I hope things go smoothly with your pregnancy. And you still look gorgeous with that little belly. :)
