Pregnancy #2 Part 2

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. All is going according to my evil little plan  We are so blessed everything is falling into place. Off to the Dr's office we go! Trey and I love my Dr. I have been his patient for over 10 years & we share mutual friends. He knew it was a big deal for us to have another baby and everyone was all smiles as we get ready to see what I had going on in my tummy!

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


  1. Oh my goodness, Amber! I can't imagine that it gets any better than news of TWINS. Do we know boy(s) or girl(s) yet?! I can't wait to hear!! Hope you are feeling better now.

  2. I just found your blog through M&M. Just wanted to say hello and let you know that I was in your same position aprox 3 years ago. Our son was 4 when we decided to have just one more baby. Surprise, spontaneous twins. We had fraternal girls. My babies are 5 years apart. The twins will be 3 this year and my son will be 8. I promise as overwhelming as it is, you too will survive. Congratulations!!!

  3. I just came across your blog today =) My husband and I just found out we are having spontaneous twins as well! We are not due until November so I'm just 14 weeks and FINALLY getting over the 'all day' sickness! Were you more sick than 'normal' with the twins?!? We also have a 3.5 year old - she will turn 4 right after they are born! We get asked all the time if they run in our family too (and they don't!)! Also get asked if they are fraternal or identical, but never been asked (yet) about the fertility drugs!! You are blessed to be getting a boy AND a girl =) Best of luck to you!


We love Comments!
