Hello fellow bees!
I’ve been waiting to add myself to the ‘list’ – I’ll be 12 weeks pregnant on Tuesday (due early June).
DH and I have been letting it all sink in and life hasn’t changed a ton so far – no wine and holding my breath when I walk by smokers – but I wasn’t going to be able to get an ultrasound for several more weeks so I booked a private one yesterday. I really just wanted to see the heartbeat – other than that I knew it was pretty early so I didn’t expect to learn too much more. Heartbeat = happy me!
So I asked the doctor who was doing the ultrasound if he could see the heartbeat. And what did he say back to me?
“You mean heartBEATS?”
Holy moley ladies – I’ve got twins here!
No twins in either of our families, no fertility treatments – we are flabbergasted. We’ve just been looking at each other and cracking up. It is so surreal.
So I guess now you can REALLY put me on the list! There is some blood in the placenta so please keep me and the little beans in your prayers – I’m hoping it’s nothing and the doctors have said it should be nothing but it will be monitored…
I thought it was time to share with the hive – we’ve hardly told anyone we were expecting one baby – now it’s really going to be something to share the latest surprise!

Hi ladies – thank you all so much for your congrats. I just spoke to DH for the first time since this morning and we just kept laughing. This is wild!
@caszos – you are SO right. Imagine finding out at like 18 weeks???? That would be unreal.
I have been reading so much about pregnancy etc… but now I feel like I’m going back to the drawing board. I have to go back and read those chapters on ‘Multiple Births’ that I have been skipping!
Thanks again everyone – it seems more real to share it!
