Twins do NOT run in my family. I did not expect this at all. Peter and I went to the doctor's office yesterday for the first baby check up and we were so excited to see our baby in the ultrasound.
I was just calmly waiting for the ultrasound to start and the only thought that mindlessly popped into my head was, "I've never been able to read these pictures."
I was just staring at the screen of the picture thinking, "Oh that's nice," when the doctor asked, "So I have a question- do twins run in your family?"
"They do now."
"No, you're joking."
"I don't joke about twins."
He pointed them out to me and I had a hard time believing it. I think the only thing I said throughout the first half of the ultrasound was "Oh my goodness"... about twenty times.
So that's mine and Peter's news! We're almost three months along with twins.
