Tales from my life as a mom of 2 sons and 2 daughters

Yesterday ended up being an extremely interesting day.

I've been having cramps for about 2 days and was starting to get worried that maybe the pregnancy was ectopic so I called the OB. They called back and said that they couldn't get me in until next week but wanted me to go to the ER to be evaluated to make sure everything was okay.

So I trek off to the ER. They get me back IMMEDIATELY and had me pee in a cup, got some blood, and did a pelvic exam. Then they took me for an ultrasound to check for placement.

She started off with an abdominal ultrasound and said she was just taking measurements of where everything was located but that she would need to do an internal to get a better view. So as soon as she starts the internal she says "That's what I thought"

Now I'm freaking out thinking it really was ectopic.

Then she says "Do twins run in your family?"

I told her not to my knowledge

She said "Well, they do now"

That's right everyone! I am expecting TWINS. 2 BEAUTIFUL little babies with heart rates in the 125 range She said they are about a week behind my LMP due date of September 27th which means I was probably right about when I conceived and my due date is October 1st. Either way I guess it doesn't much matter as the babies will most likely be born sometime in early to mid September.

I go back to the OB on Monday for a follow up. I'm in shock but SO excited
