Doubly Blessed

For those of you waiting on an update on today's 7 week ultrasound.... we got to see TWO heartbeats! So we're having twins!!! Perhaps this explains my hCG almost tripling instead of just doubling and the fact that as of last week, I can no longer button my pants, lol. Good thing I have 2 bella bands... they have been my lifesavers so far. I know most of it is from being bloated, but at this point, I'm going to be showing a lot sooner and getting a lot bigger. I've had this feeling the whole time that it was twins... always referring to the babies instead of just baby... even my mom and a few other people were doing the same thing. We are super excited and now trying to figure out how we're going to buy 2 of everything instead of 1, lol. Guess that discount I have at Target will come in handy while I'm still there!

And even though the ultrasound picture is dark and not very good (no arrows to point to the babies)... here is the picture we brought home today:

Still saying lots of prayers the babies continue to grow healthy and strong! I've been release back to my OB and the earliest I could get in was in 3 weeks so that's when my next appointment will be and hopefully we'll have better pictures from that one!

P.S. In other news... Ken is going to Norfolk, which was the next best thing to him getting back here so I am relieved. Hopefully he makes chief too and then our back-up plan of having an apartment up there for when he's in will be easier to do. Not sure yet if his boat will be in or out when the babies are born... but I will be starting a sign-up sheet for anyone around here who wants to come by and help :).
