Wow I can't believe I have made it. I have had so many fears and paranoia this pregnancy that making it this far never really crossed my mind. Holy crap. I am so happy. I hope by getting happy I am not gearing up myself for a big dissapointment. Oh for the days of innocence when I believed getting pregnant meant you would have a healthy baby 9 months later. God I wish I could be that person again. But I can't. I can never be that person who has no idea of the real statistics ever again. But for today I am happy that I have made it this far. Only 27 more weeks to go. I am 1/3rd of the way through.
In about 5 more weeks we will have our big ultrasound where they look at the baby (or babies .. I will mention more of this in just a minute) and hopefully will tell us the baby (ies) look great and healthy and hopefully tell us the sex(es).
Notice the plurals I keep using? I didn't mention this to anyone earlier because I thought my DH was joking. But he SWEARS up and down that during our ultrasound that he thought he saw another baby not just the one that I saw. It wasn't a vaginal ultrasound and I was only like 11w1d during the ultrasound and it wasn't very clear but there was obviously one bouncing baby in there. But he swears that he saw another one in there too. The thing is .. twins run on both sides of my family. My great grandfather was a twin on mom's side, and on my dad's side I have twin cousins and my great grandmother was a twin. So wow .. that would be incredibly wild. With my other 2 pregnancies I had vaginal ultrasounds early and there was no doubt there was only one baby in there. This time there is a possibility of there being more .. because the dr. was using an abdominal one and she didn't really pan around much .. basically she just wanted to show me one live baby to calm my fears. I had forgotten to mention the history of twins to her. For some reason it never even occured to me to mention it this time. Where is the other two times I mentioned it right away.
So there is my little news. Charles seems very sure of it. And he was this sure about Chip being a boy too .. so it's got me wondering. 5 more weeks .. to find out the sex and whether there is one or two in there. I want one healthy baby but I sure as heck wouldn't turn down two healthy babies .. but sure hope if we have two that atleast one of them is a girl .. cause other wise I am going to be SEVERELY out numbered.
The funny thing is when I was little I wanted a little girl and then twin boys. Well I got my boy first .. so maybe we could have twin girls? Oh and all the twins in both sides of my family have been of the same sex so if we got one of each that would really stick out.
