I can't even tell you how excited I am that we are expanding our family! Clark and I have been trying for over a year to have kids and the time finally came for us. I haven't talked about this to most people but last year we had a miscarriage around 7.5 weeks but I didn't find out until 11 weeks because I never passed anything. I had surgery to get everything removed and ever since my hormones have been out of whack! I have truly learned patience this year and having to rely on the Lord to soften my heart and just wait for our time.
I found out at 4 weeks that I was pregnant and when Clark and I saw the positive we were SO happy. I just cried and cried of joy. I was surprised we found out so early! I was just hoping that I would be able to keep this baby! I had my first ultrasound appointment at 6 weeks. Clark couldn't go with me because he had a McDonald's class he had to go to. While in the room I was looking on the screen and I swear I saw two sacs but I wasn't sure. I have read and looked at so many pregnancy things that I thought I knew what I saw. My doctor showed me the first heart beat and then he said "and here is the other!" WHAT! We were having TWINS! I was stunned but not too surprised or scared because I have secretly always wanted twins! I left the appointment and went to purchase two white onsies to surprise Clark and the family. Clark over the recent weeks had told me he just knew we were having twins. So when he called and asked how my appointment went I just said no twins and said I'll see him when he got home. Clark and his family opened the gift with the two onsies and everyone about fell over! It was GREAT! My mom didn't even believe that we were expecting two!
I was pretty nauseous week 7 & 8 but I have felt better since and have been able to eat frequently and keep things down! I have been pretty lucky! Hopefully it stays that way! I've had 3 ultrasound appointments since...one at 6, 8, and 10 weeks. Our next appointment at 13 weeks is on Clark's birthday Nov. 10th so hopefully we can hear the heartbeats then. Today the little twins were moving and kicking and waving! It was way cute! The twins will be fraternal and we are hoping for one boy and girl but we will be happy with what ever we get!
I hope everything will go fine! We will find out beginning of December what the sexes are. Please keep us in your prayers :) WE ARE SO HAPPY AND GRATEFUL!!!!
