To continue the story of pregnancy #2....
If you missed part one you can read it here.
So only the 3 of us knew! By the way looking back what was I thinking trusting a 3 year old not to tell! Making it thru Christmas and new years at my parents was comical to say the least. I was not feeling well and my mom was giving me medicine and cleaning after I touched anything! She thought I was contagious. Trey had a pocket full of pills I had handed off to him because I could not take them pregnant! We had a mini drug ring!
Come NewYears I kew if I did not drink my secrete would totally be out. So I had a special cooler under the DJ booth where I had O'Douls non-alcoholic beer with the labels peeled off my personalized kookie and sparkling Cider.
Up to this point I had been to the OB to have a blood work test and the results came back positive, VERY positive! So my first ultrasound was scheduled for January 18th. By this point I had told one friend that I trust. I well swear of the high rate of miscarriage at this point in pregnancy and just like to keep the news private but I had to tell someone!
Me: Baby B is Contagious if you know what I mean
friend: OMG I so sorry he does have a runny nose I am so sorry he got you sick is Campbell ok?
Me: Not that kind of contagious
friend: (after a long pause) OH! Well he is really cute
By now we had put an offer in our house and were set to close January 20th.
Ultrasound is on, I see the nurses eyes get big, Dr. Cowan laughs and says you got twins! Trey is dead silent, I said WHAT!? and Campbell jumps up and says "Yeah Mommy look at the screen there is 2 bubbles in your belly" After I argue with Campbell that the ultra sound is blurry the ruling comes down, Campbell wins...
After a lecture from the Dr and nurse (which Mr. T and I admit we heard none of except gain 50 lb.)
We returned to the car in a state of total shock asking each other how we managed twins! Sorry Campbell I'm sure you never water to hear that conversation!
So family and friends there you have it, how we were told we were having
Spontaneous Fraternal Twins! A 3 year old figured it out before me.
Number one Question I'm asked is were you on fertility drugs
umm no and doesn't the look of shock on my face tell you that
Second most asked question is do either Mr T or I have a family history of twins.
Nope, least not in the last 40 years. Looks like I'm just fertile Mertel
