Take a Deep Breath

Here's what we know so far:
-Each baby has its own placenta and amniotic sac. Good news.
-Best guess is that I'm carrying one boy and one girl.
-Both babies are measuring right on schedule for 18 weeks, and the quick scan the ultrasound tech was able to do looks good.
-I can no longer see the midwives, but I can see an OB in the same office, so hopefully the basic philosophy of care will stay the same.
-I have an ultrasound at a perinatal clinic on Friday so they can do a more thorough check on each baby.

The list of things we don't know is infinite and frightening, but includes:
-Whether I will be able to travel as planned this summer.
-Whether we can afford day care for 3 kids.
-Whether I am going to lose my mind 100% or if parts of it might be salvageable.

Congrats on the babies. I can imagine how scary it is, just take care of yourself, things will be good!

Congratulations! That is so exciting! And I can not imagine how scary it must also be (I don't even have one child, so 2 babies at once... wow).
I always thought it would be so much fun to have twins, though. I also always wanted to BE a twin.
I know, you're so glad I delurked to tell you that. I love your blog and can't wait to hear stories about your new adventures. =)
