A lovely Sunday afternoon

I'm just sitting on the couch next to Jason watching the football game and I decided to write a post in efforts of putting off cleaning. Things are GREAT right now. Jason and I had some bad feelings about the babies. We both felt like something just wasn't right. I called the Dr. to express my concerns and they got me in the next day! I have never been so nervous at an appointment before in my life. I almost stopped her from doing the sonogram because I wasn't prepared to hear the bad news. She went ahead and we saw both beautiful babies and heard both very strong heartbeats!! I have never felt so good in my entire life. Baby A is 4.4ish centimeters long and the heartbeat was 171. Baby B is 4.76 centimeters and that heartbeat was 169. She scheduled another appointment 2 weeks out (October 29th). She didn't say why but I can imagine it's because she knows I'm such a psycho worrier. We got to ask a ton of questions. Some of which we were happy with the answers and others that we are going to learn to see the positive. One of those things is that she said I have less than a 25% chance of delivering vaginally. I SOOOO don't want a c-section but there are a lot of upsides to it as well. So I'm dealing with it. However, my Dr. is going to make sure that I only have a c-section if it is absolutely necessary. I'm going to try and get some pictures up later.

So anyone who reads this knows.... we're having twins! We are so thrilled and scared at the same time. I'm not sure what it will be like to have two babies but I know it will be a fun adventure! Well, my hormones are definitely getting the best of me today. I feel completely overwhelmed and have been on the verge of tears all day. I'm nervous about school. I'm feeling a little useless in my new position and I have definitely failed at being an adequate housekeeper. Every morning is different and I never know how I'm going to feel. I just want to feel normal again. We are still 2 weeks away from our next Dr.'s appointment and we just really want to make sure our babies are still perfect! Anyway, enough complaining. I'm very excited about our next phase of life and cannot wait to share it with all of you.
