After two miscarriages at or around the sixth week last year, my hubby and I were cautiously happy when we found out we were pregnant on February 13. At nine weeks, I decided to go for a viability ultrasound. I was terrified, and that was before I heard the words "I see two, it's twins!" Those words caused a complete numbness to descend over me and turned my wonderful hubby into an emotional, and VERY happy, man. Who would have thought a grainy black-and-white photo could bring a man to tears? That part is wonderful and I love him more for it.
So now, just days later, I am ... every emotion I can think of all mushed together in a confusing roller coaster of disbelief, shock, tears, laughter, denial, disbelief and many others. Today is no different. I am excited but scared as well.
I should mention that I am 35 (will give birth at 36), my hubby is 49. He has two girls age 28 and 26, I have one boy age 16. So it has been a long time since either of us did this.
None of our kids know (actually very few people know) as we want to wait until after the 12th week in order to get past the highest miscarriage risk. My son will be upset with me for not telling him and I have no idea how he will feel about twins.
So much to think about, plan, learn, do, etc.
