The ever-lovely Mil has been feeling pretty crap of late, more so than usual. It’s really weird. Sort of a sickness. In the morning [^actually, it’s all the time].
I don’t know what it is. The thought of food makes her nauseous, and even odder, she’s getting bigger. I wouldn’t call her fat, but there’s definitely some tummy on her.
We went to the doctor to get an opinion, and they sent us for some scans. Scan A clearly shows some sort of growth:
They tell us that it’s perfectly normal that Mil would feel the way she does. But the last time this happened, I’m pretty sure she held up better than she has.
Clearly, this is not normal.
We had the doctors check again. Sometimes they miss things you know, and we wanted to make sure it was nothing more sinister.
I’m glad we did, because when we checked again, Scan B shows the growth has clearly doubled!
The doctors have told us not to worry, it’s still all perfectly normal.
*BUT HOLY CRAP BUCKETS WE’RE HAVING TWINS YOU GUYS!*
All jokes aside, how amazing is that!? There are actually two little people in there! They’re twelve weeks old [^so I can finally say something], beautiful and healthy and Mil and I couldn’t be happier. Of course, we were only expecting one this time, so we’re expecting two to be a little more difficult, but we know we’re surrounded by lots of people who love us very much and everyone we’ve told so far has been enormously supportive and wonderful.
I’m very excited (despite my introduction) and I’m so happy I get to share it with everyone. Thank you to everyone who has been so supportive already.
Now I’m off to start a Kickstarter campaign to buy one of these:
If any of you have any tips about how to actually do this, please let me know…
