The Biggest Surprise of my Life.

About 2 weeks ago, I got one of the biggest surprises of my life....at that point


We are pregnant. 

Wait, wait wait...allow me to finish your sentence for you....

"What? How? OMG? WTF? How the hell? Isn't Holden only like 4 months old? Weren't you breastfeeding? Didn't you do IVF to FINALLY get pregnant with your boys? OMG? What? How the hell?"

MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY! 

And if you throw in a few tears, insane bouts of laughter, and a whole lot of thinking "OMG, what the hell am I going to do with 2 babies in 12 months" then you will have reacted the exact same way I did. 

I wrote few posts when I first found out, that I will now publish (backdated, of course). I was not ready to come clean yet, and we are still keeping it very quite. But my blog doesn't count as telling people right? HAHA! We are trying to stay positive that this pregnancy will end with a baby and not a miscarriage. However given our history, that is not guaranteed. 

However today at our first ultrasound we received an even bigger surprise.
TWINS!!! 

OMG? How in the world did this happen.
 Natural Surprise Twins, after two IVF cycles. 

I almost fell off the table, when I saw those two heartbeats on the screen today at my Dr's appointment. 
I wasn't sure if I wanted to laugh, cry, or throw up. 
Finally I just had to laugh!

Today, I am 6 weeks and due on November 14, 2012 
(Holdens due date was November 9, 2011)
Both babies had a heartbeat of 120!!

Miracle? Yes! CRAZY? OMG Yes!!!!!

Mike and I are BOTH still in shock. We have been here before when I was pregnant with London, so we are cautiously optimistic that everything will work out. 

3 babies in 12 months! OMG!

If you know me IRL or on Facebook, I am NOT ready to come out of the closet yet, so please don't mention it there yet! Thanks!

I also (like a previous commenter) had to make sure these were new posts when they showed up on my reader! I thought you were writing about when you got pregnant with Holden.

Anyway - what a miracle! I can only imagine how you are feeling, but I can't wait to keep following your growing family! Congratulations!

Congrats!!! That is so awesome. The same thing happened to me. I went through IVF with my son and then on his first bday I found out I was 7 weeks preg with my daughter.
Congrats again! Twins, wow!!!

ousoonerchick said...

I'll be honest I had to come back and reread your post again just to take sure it was right. I was also trying to see if said where you lived and your side bar says maybe baby late 2013, guess God had other plans. LOL

SLESE1014 said...

OMG & HFS!!!! What an amazing miracle blessing.....will definitely keep you in my prayers....& with a 3 month old I'm telling my husband no sex...it's just too risky. You're the second BFP'S after IVF I've read today.....planning on an FET in the fall for my self....wishing you the best of luck!

Stephanie said...

OH MY GOSH! That is amazing! I cannot believe it, but I am sending only the happiest and most positive of thoughts your way. I am so over-the-moon for you!

Ed and Elizabeth said...

*#$@)#*~!!!!!!!!!!

I seriously had to read this like five times to process it. Especially considering I have two boys the same age as yours. I got goose bumps and I don't know whether or not I would throw up or just laugh at the irony. I agree with everyone else...I'm pulling for two girls. I think the Busy Bees are going to have to get together and make a big ass schedule to have shifts so we can watch your babies for you while you cook these babies. Let me know if you need anything.

:) XOXO
