So if finding out your actually pregnant isn’t shocking enough…the moment you find out it’s twins is unbelievable. I can honestly say it was the best moment of my life. I often relive the nurse telling me over and over again in my head as it was just amazing…..
So in the morning I was looking in the mirror as you do, debating whether the bump I thought I had, ( I was 10 weeks) was baby or just plain old fat (it turns out it was actually 2 babies). I remember sitting in the waiting room, bladder full of water, dying for a wee and looking around at all the other expectant mummas and thinking no one else has a bump yet (so I must just be fat right?)
Apparently the nurse knew straight away that it was twins but decided to break me in gently. So there it was, this moving image doing twirls and summersaults and it’s tiny heart beating so fast. I was so relieved, so happy and so fascinated that it was moving inside me and I couldn’t feel a thing. So we sat there staring at it like all parents do when they see their baby for the first time on a screen and watched, transfixed, whilst the nurse did all their measurements. And that was that… or so we thought. The nurse looked straight at me with a smirk on his face and said …”do you want to know something else?”…I was like “WHAT?!?!?!” and even at this point, twins were not on my radar …I honestly thought he was going to say your further on then you’ve thought (that would mean I’m not just fat..hurah) and then he says…….”there is another one” OMG!!!!!!!!! IT’S TWINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
