An Eleven Week Update Cause REASONS

First, let’s take a minute to review how highly improbable this pregnancy IS.

We’re in shock.

But also ecstatic.

I’m in a very odd place because, yes, Pontus and I had a long conversation about how many children years ago – TWO – because he had a miserable time as the middle child.

And while I would’ve been fine with one, Pontus felt strongly that siblings were vital.

And once I had Sasha, I wanted another one immediately.

So Two!

But when I was a child and I imagined having children, I imagined that I wanted to have one pregnancy with twins – a boy and a girl.

It was a very specific idea and one completely not based in reality because twins don’t run in our family at all.

So when I found out we are pregnant with TWINS.

TWIIIIINNNNNNNNNSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!! !

Let me take you to the exact moment.

We’re at our very first sonogram appointment. And the tech scans in on two black blobs. And I SCREAM, “IS THAT TWO?!?”

The tech leaps. And laughs nervously.

“Wow. You saw that right away. Yes, that’s two.”

I turned to Pontus and practically screamed, “TWINS!”

And for the rest of the scan while she checked their growth (eleven weeks and one day) and confirmed their heartbeats (yuppers) I LAUGHED and CRIED at the SAME TIME.

So… twins.

We’re over the moon, of course.

And totally freaking the fuck out.
