Finding out I was pregnant with twins
I found out I was pregnant quite early (day before my period was due actually). Had some bleeding at 5 weeks. When I had an ultrasound, they weren’t able to tell us anything at that point. I had to have another scan at 7 weeks. From 7 weeks I had the most awful morning sickness or more like whenever I ate food sickness or moved or did anything really. Everything was going great.
At 12 weeks, had my next scan, we were chatting away with the guy doing my ultrasound and then his face changed, he’s like hold on a minute. I looked at my husband thinking the worst. He then turned to us and said “Its TWINS”. I laughed, saying you are joking right?? He was like “No, its twins turning his screen to us and pointing them out to us” My husband sat there in shock…I continued to laugh. We found out we were having MCDA twins. Identical twins. Wow. He also explained that could also be why my morning sickness was really bad.
