There is so much that I need to write about on here that I would always get extremely overwhelmed at the thought catching up on everything on here and so... I just didn't!

But today I woke up determined to just write something and get this thing going again.

So the big news is... we are getting ready for not one, but TWO babies.

On Dec. 15, two days before we left for Brazil we went in for my first appointment (we had know that I was pregnant for 3 weeks already.)

After starting the ultrasound, the Midwife was taking a long time to say anything. She just kept looking and looking and looking closer and not saying anything. Johan was pretty quiet too and I was starting to wonder if she was even seeing anything. That's when Johan asked:

"Is that what I think it is?"
and Helen says "Yup, do you want to tell her or do you want me to?"

With a big question mark over my head I ask "What?!"

And as she turns the monitor around, she doesn't even have to say anything, I see them.

"You're having twins!"

I could barely believe it. Never in a millions years did I ever - EVER - expected to expect twins! But here we are, after many days of pure shock, yes, I was in shock and still am a little, we are trying to get back on our feet and figure out what to do.

We are very excited, and scared, but still very excited. The babies are identical, and we know this because they are sharing one placenta. Because they are sharing this one placenta there are a lot of risks involved, which I won't get into right now.

For now, we are doing well, I'm doing better, and the babies are doing great. I go in for my next appointment in 3 weeks and I can't wait to see my little bitty babies again.

I promise to post Brazil pictures soon and post about everything else that's been going on.
