And that is that

Yes, can you believe it?  After my 5 month hiatus, a second post in two days.  This one is one you won't want to miss!  Justin and I had been planning on doing in vitro for kiddo number three when we got to Boise this June but the night before our phone consultation with the Dr. I took a pregnancy test on a whim- just to be sure I wasn't somehow preggers.  And guess what? I was.

To add to the excitement, when I went to the doctor 3 weeks later I was surprised to find out that not only was I not nearly as far along as I thought I was but that there are two little babies growing inside my belly.  Yuppers, identical twins for me, and all on our own too (I think Justin likes to credit his super sperm for this miraculous event).  I honestly don't know why we are so blessed, but I am grateful that we are!

So I am due December 28th and praying I don't get put on bed rest while Justin is off at officer school for 6 weeks in October. Wish me luck that all will go well and cross your fingers for Justin that he will get two boys instead of us getting two more girls (I'll take whatever as long as they are healthy but I know my husband would prefer not to be so outnumbered for the rest of his life!).  And it is great to not have to worry about the future decisions of whether we should have 3 kids or four.  Apparently Heavenly Father wanted to make his mind up for us (ie. Justin) and just give us the fourth at the same time.  I am 10 weeks and I already have a baby bump (I'm not just getting fat) and crazy sciatica.  But I am thrilled that both babies are doing so well and I can't wait to find out what we are having so I can start sewing!

Wow that is soo cool! I always wanted identical twin girls so I could dress them the same. I am so cliche... You will have to let me babysit one night when you need a date night, k? I love babies as long as I can give them back after a few hours *wink*
