Today I had my first OB visit, or rather I was supposed to. As soon as I pulled into the clinic they called to cancel. I went in and asked them to at least check for the HB since I had driven an hour to the appt. so they had a nurse check for the HB. It was right under my belly button! I told the nurse I was thinking twins, and she agreed I was measuring quite big, so she sent me on over to the US lab. As soon as they had the US thingy on my belly you could clearly see two sacks! IT'S TWINS!!!!!!!!! Since I didn't see my OB, I go back for a re-schedule on Monday, but in a way I"m glad b/c I can now ask him twin questions, and know it is for sure twins! I have been measuring very big, and my uterus is about an inch or so below my belly button at not quite 13 weeks. I have strongly suspected for the last 2 weeks or so that there were 2 in there, or a tomor or something b/c I am just SO big, clearly look PG and need maternity. So, that's our news!

I'll try to get a belly pic sometime today or tomorrow! At 8 weeks I went to a wedding and had family patting my belly! Does that tell you anything? I honestly knew it was twins before I went, I was sure over the last weekend that it was, it just couldn't be a singleton. I can use both hands to cover my uterus. I'm normally a size 6-8 mama, so it may not look like I"m that big to some of you, but to me, it feels HUGE. Much bigger than my previous pregnancies. That US was honestly the coolest one I"ve ever had, you could see both of them swimming and kicking around, one was even sucking it's thumb! I have some pics but they really aren't very good. One shows one baby and you can see the ribcage of the other baby, and the other one shows kind of two white spots in two black sacks for the tops of hte heads, it's just really weird! Then Ihave individuals of each baby, one is okay and the other is cool w/ it sucking it's thumb! The US was just SO cool! I had origionally taken my 4 year old w/ me and left my 2 year old w/ my mom. SHe thought I was nuts for thinking twins, but when I called her to come and take a look she brought my 2 year old and my dad w/ her. They thought it was the neatest thing! I really wish my DH had been there, but he was working and it was a spur of the moment thing, I didn't have but an hour's notice so he couldn't get there. It took about an hour and a half to do all measurments for both babies. ONe measured 13w4d the other 13w6d, but I am just now 13 weeks today, so I know they are measuring a bit big, no way my times are off, but I could easily have Christmas babies!!!!!

crap. lol. congrats! i have had the same twin feeling, and we just cannot do twins now, lol. my dh is deployed and will be until i'm about 36-38 weeks... i had my gf find the hb because my mw couldn't at 10 weeks, and just shy of 11 weeks is was about an inch below my belly button. then i had her try a couple days later, and it was right next to my belly button. eek.

but congrats to you, lol! how exciting!! now you've got me all paranoid!

Congrats!!! I can't wait to look at your pix when I get home tonight (blocked at work, of course).

How do you think your OB will react? Is S/he natural birth friendly when it comes to multiples, or do you think they will treat you all "high risk" and hook you up to every "machine that the goes bing" that they've got?

I'm probably lagging far behind you. I bet you have a list of questions a mile long planned for Monday. . .

Congrats, again!
