Our Announcement – Double Trouble

July 14, 2013

In April I took my first pregnancy test which confirmed that we were expecting. It was planned so we were both made up and I was making it through the first few weeks without too much worry.

This week me and my husband went along to the hospital for my 12 week scan. We were excited and looking forward to seeing our baby on screen for the first time, I always feel like I need it to confirm that there is actually something in there. As the sonographer turned the screen round we could quite clearly see a baby and another shape over to one side. We have both since said that our exact thoughts were, ‘I don’t remember seeing the placenta on Lucas’ scans.’ So when she said to us, ‘Well, I have some news’ I knew exactly what she was going to say! Twins! I cried and I turned to see James grinning. She quite clearly showed us two babies and two heartbeats and later confirmed that they will be identical!

I cannot begin to explain how I felt; so, so shocked but absolutely thrilled.  I’ll do some more posts on what has happened since and the rollercoaster of emotions but for now I just want to say that we couldn’t be happier and we are looking forward to becoming a family of five.
