The Verdict is In

We are seeing DOUBLE!

Now, you might have to look closely (ha!), but you there are 2 sacs, each with one healthy, heart-beating bean. Baby A is measuring about a 4-5 days behind Baby B. It's not unusual for one baby to be slightly smaller than the other in a twin pregnancy. This could be because Baby B implanted some days before Baby A, or Baby A just might be developing slower. It is possible for Baby A to catch up, so that's where our prayers lie.
Other than that exciting news, everything else was a pretty routine OB visit. I will go back in 3 weeks for another ultrasound.
I was in a bit of shock when I saw the 2 sacs. I knew twins were a possibility, but I was still a bit shocked. My shock has turned to excitement for C & M as the day goes on. I will confess that I am a little nervous, mostly due to fear of the unknown. But I am healthy and in the care of more than adequate professionals, so I feel good about all things. And of course, C is very excited. I'm so honored to be able to carry her babies, and I can't wait until she holds them both.
On another note: I need to figure out what to do with this short-waisted, non-existent torso that I have going on...where am I going to grow?!


  1. Wow is about all I can say. That....and I'm praying for you.

  2. wow twins!! That is exciting. So do you know at this point if they are identical or fraternal? I don't know if you can tell yet and/or if the different sacs or something are a tell-tell sign... ?

  3. New blog follower here..but wanted to say congrats!!

  4. Wow! So exciting! And yes, I imagine a bit scary, too! Prayers for your unique journey!

    @Jordan 2 separate sacs are fraternal. Identical twins share a gestational sac. :)
