We're Pregnant!

I haven't updated in quite some time as the past few months have felt like a roller coaster, but we are expecting...TWINS!!
We found out I was pregnant on November 9, but didn't find out about the twins until the first ultrasound at 6 weeks 5 days. Marty had a feeling it was twins from the beginning, I think. Anytime we talked baby in the 2.5 weeks before the ultrasound, he referred to babies, not baby. However, I think we were both in shock when we left the doctor that day. In fact, we may still be :)
At that first ultrasound it was discovered that I have a subchorionic hemorrhage, which is basically a pocket of blood & clots between Baby A and the uterus. We were told at that appointment we could possibly lose Baby A. Not something you want to hear, but we knew God had taken us this far and it was in His hands.
In the next few weeks it appeared as though the subchorionic was disappearing, but boy we were in for a surprise. The day after Christmas I had to go to ER for a disturbing amount of bleeding and passing clots. Thankfully, both babies were just fine on the ultrasound. For two weeks following, I only had brown spotting, so I thought it was clearing again. Until this Monday, when I had to go back to the hospital for the same thing. Again, both babies look good. I am now on bed rest for two weeks in hopes that the bleed will clear up and we can move past it.
I will be so glad once it is gone, so I can finally enjoy being pregnant & tell everyone!

  1. Just found your blog! Congratulations!!! I'm soo excited for you!! :) Twins are the greatest. I had that exact type of bleeding early on in my pregnancy, and it was also all around Twin A. Thankfully, everything turned out totally fine, but it did feel like it took forever for it all to go away. I'll be praying that it clears up soon for you and that you have a wonderful, healthy pregnancy!!!
