Twin Surprise!

We were quite shocked to learn yesterday that we're pregnant with twins! This is going to be a complicated and high-risk pregnancy. There is a possibility during this first trimester that we could lose one of the babies (and of course we want to end up with two healthy babies!). We are in week 6 according to the ultrasound technician - although I was sure that we were farther along! We are asking for your prayers at this time. This is going to be quite the transition physically and emotionally for me as things progress. I have already gained a few pounds and am starting to stick out a bit much sooner that I had imagined I would (of course, this is my 3rd pregnancy and I have to have room for two!).

Well, we'll keep you all posted. I've got to sign off now, Michael is doing something to Connor.

And here I thought you had a dentist appointment or something yesterday. That is shocking. But so exciting. David was hoping we would have twins this time. However I am glad it is you. When are you due? You are in my prayers and let me know if I can do anything. May God be your strength durning this time.

Congratulations! That is very exciting news. Lela had to call me to have me check your blog. She just had to tell someone.
We will definitely be praying for you. And we're also happy to help in anyway. Are you up for hosting playgroup next week?

Wow wow! You have a long road ahead so maybe sometime you should make a pitstop and drop your boys off for a little rest...Congrats however, I hope everything goes well. Maybe they will both be girls and then you will have 2 of each!
