When I found out that we would be having twins I don’t think I have been any happier or more nervous at the same time than any other point in my life. Dakota and I had been Joking that if we had twins what would we do? and how crazy it would be! About 1 month after finding out I was expecting, I started having weird dreams of having multiples and I also started feeling very sick and tired. I was losing my energy and I could do nothing but sleep and occasionally eat if my stomach would allow it. One week after having my first dream of multiples my mother called me and told me that she needed to talk to me about a dream she had been having. She too had been dreaming of having twins for grandchildren. We just laughed it off and thought it was weird that we had had the same dream. Later I went online to look up symptoms of a multiple pregnancy, and I seriously had every singe one!! I showed it to Dakota who just laughed and said that every woman thinks she could be carrying twins or more. I agreed and let it go. 2 weeks later was my first prenatal visit in which we would determine how far along I was by having an ultrasound. Dakota got situated next to the chair I was in and the tech told me about what to expect and not to jump at the cold gel she was about to put on my belly. Soon we were all gazing at the screen containing our wonderful miracle, and the tech looked at us and said, “do you know how to recognize images in an ultrasound?” and we looked at her and replied that yea, kind of. She then smiled and asked us what we saw. I really didn’t know, It was oddly shaped. LIke a head and then a gap for the the neck and another head for the belly. She laughed and looked at us and said, “This one here is twin A and this one over there is twin B.” I was the happiest moment of my life!! Dakota and I cried with joy as thoughts of our jokes came true. It was amazing. I called my mother after the appt and told her the news. She was so angry at me for thinking that its funny to joke around about things like that. No matter how much I told her that we really were having twins…she didnt believe me!! I had to take a pic of my sonogram with my cell phone and send it to her phone! and even then she was in disbelief! Although no stretch marks have appeared yet on my body, I know they are coming and I don’t care. having made a life, OR TWO at that! is so worth every scar i get on the way. No matter how my body changes, in the eyes of God and in my eyes and in Dakota’s eyes, I am still beautiful and I always will be. Go Moms!!!
