Thanks so much everyone, I'm still processing it, but its getting more exciting and less scary. It's quite the shock as we planned to have 2 kids and be done, but now we will have 3! It's just going to really change our financial situation, at least in the short term, as three in daycare is oof expensive and we may look at other options and we have another carseat to get, another crib (eventually, won't need it right away), a double stroller for sure now, etc. We're calling them A & B for now which is fun
But yeah, we saw both little tiny babies, both strong heartbeats and the OB is going to send us to a high risk OB so they can do a confirmation U/S to make sure of the 2 placentas, but my OB was very confident. Who knows now if I will have a vaginal birth as I know a lot of doctors don't even want to try them with twins even in the best of situations.
They couldn't tell yet if they are fraternal or identical, but I won't be surprised if they are fraternal as those run in my family. I'm at my parents house now (why the light posting) for my sister's wedding this weekend and I'm glad for the opportunity to talk to my three aunts that all had fraternal twins
I think I'll be talking to them all quite a bit more too for advice.
We also ended up showing the U/S picture to my Dad and then my Mom and seeing if they would figure out that it was two babies. My Dad got it right away, my Mom didn't at first, we couldn't wait to tell anyone else family-wise and my Mom has told plenty of people now too (which is fine) so we may not get to surprise too many more, but that was fun to get to surprise them in person a bit. Well, I can do it with my coworkers, so that will be fun
So yeah, it's exciting and we'll be fine, but geez, 2 little babies at once is going to be a trip. I'm glad they will be coming right around when my Mom will be off for the summer (she works at a high school) so she can come help a lot! I'm so glad the timing worked out how I wanted now, so very glad!
I'll post the U/S picture when I get back on Monday, no way to upload it here.
