Speechless

WoW! I have some news! Some BIG news!!!! I was going to write a cute little blog about the fact that I am pregnant. That's really not even big news compared to what I learned today. We had an ultrasound today to see the real due date of the baby because I had a miscarriage right before I got pregnant.

Well, I AM HAVING TWINS!!!!! OH. MY. GOSH. TWINS.


I am FREAKING OUT here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The due date is August 8th, but I'll probably have them a few weeks early. I'm only 8 weeks along, so hopefully it doesn't nip me in the butt that I am posting this on my blog so early, but I just had to share the news. Plus, I just can't hide the fact that I'm pregnant anymore. My belly is already gargantuan and I am SICK SICK SICK. Details will come in next post.

THIS IS THE BEST NEWS! What fun I am going to have with my new grandbabies!!!! You have our full support in whatever you need, and I promise everything will be OK. Scarey right now I know, but what a blessing-the Lord must really love you guys to give you two at once. Not just anyone could handle this, but you two can. You are fabulous parents, and I couldn't think of a better home for these two little ones to go to! Hannah will love being the big sister, and she will be great at it! CONGRATULATIONS! Love to the 5 of you! Mom

Wow!!!! Congrats! I'm freaking out that I'm pregnant with 1 baby and you're having 2. Hannah is going to have such fun and is going to be a great big sister. Isn't it funny how we're pregnant together again? My new due date is July25 (Maddie's original due date) so we may have our babies at the same time. We'll have to keep each other updated. Do twins run in the family?

O MY GOSH!!!! MAran!!!!!! Congratulations. I too have to agree with Heavenly Father sending them to an amazing family. I'm thinking you are at the top of the charts of being the BEST parents. ;) Everything will go great because the man up stairs is right by your side. I feel like i need to call you and scream. Anyways, I just can't wait till you find out the gender/genders???? Take care. I'm very excited for you.

Oh wow! I have been disconnected from the blogging world for a little while and I come back to find this crazy news! That is so exciting! Congratulations!! I have always secretly wanted twins even though I know it would be a huge undertaking. How fun! I hope everything goes smoothly with your pregnancy and all. Congrats and take care!

I am sooo excited for you guys! It will be so fun to dress them alike (unless they're the opposite sex of course-that wouldn't be good). I can't wait to see if they're boys/girls and what they look like. Congratulations you two. They were sent to you because you're super calm parents and can handle it. They are lucky to have you. By the way, I hear that the first two years of their lives are a blur to many parents. So be sure to take lots of pics and videos. You probably won't remember it much being sleep deprived and all.

leslie jo said...

Wow how exciting that is!!! I have always wanted twins, do they run in the family?
You are a great mom and will do awesome. What fun Hannah will have... I guess that means no reunion for you huh?

Angela said...

Congrats! I can't believe your having twins! I am so happy for you guys. Hope your pregnancy goes well...is it too soon to ask if I can do pictures of your twins when they are born:) Oh, I am so excited!

Jon, Teresa and Madison said...

So does this mean you guys will make your way back to California since there will be lots of hands to help? Just curious. I love Hannah's new picture- I bet that's how you and Scott felt. Ha,ha,ha!!!!!!
