On Friday 8/17 we went to our sonogram appointment. M. got to be there with us, which was really great.
As we were waiting for the doctor to come in and get to business the three of us, Josh, M. and myself were talking about how easy M. has it. He only has to show up to appointments – he doesn’t have to deal with the day to day of taking care of a pregnant woman. (Not that it’s that hard though) No running out in the middle of the night to satiate a cupcake craving. (Josh did that a few times when I was pregnant with Ben)
The doctor came in and within a few minutes we saw two black blobs on the screen. In each one was a tiny grey little bean with a beating heart.
That’s right folks, it’s TWINS!
M. was elated. I know that I felt it was going to be twins before we even did the transfer, but seeing it on the screen made it much more real, especially since my symptoms have been fairly easy to deal with. I actually told the doctor I didn’t feel pregnant enough and had worried something had changed since the beta tests.
As we were leaving M. insisted that I call him if I needed anything. Of course, I wouldn’t call him for anything simple like needing a maternity bra now or a belly band because my pants are uncomfortable. I have a monthly allowance that provides for those kinds of things. So, Friday evening we were texting about the due date and again he insisted I tell him if I needed anything. I replied with, “I promise to let you know if I need anything other than cupcakes.”
Saturday morning there was a knock on my door and a cupcake delivery!
I have the best IF!
We have our next sonogram appointment on the 31st.
