First scan today - It's TWINS!!!

6 weeks and 3 days in - Where do I even begin?

I was so nervous when I got up this morning, we went to the hospital and sat for 15 minutes in the waiting room, the sonographer was late and as every minute passed we got more and more nervous.

When we finally went in, She had a good look around and didn't say anything - I have to say my heart was in my throat and my stomach was doing backflips - I was just waiting for her to tell us there was nothing there, but she came back with - ooo there are two!

We just burst into tears. I can't even begin to describe how we are feeling right now. Elation as everything is OK and joy as we are going to get the family we have dreamed of and worked so hard for.

I know we still have a long way to go - I want to get the babies past 24 weeks and then I'll relax a little, but for today everything is great.

There were two sacs, two heartbeats and all looked OK.

I have my first midwife appointment on the 15th and we are back for another scan on the 17th July as they will be monitoring me closely this time.

I'm still in shock.

A big thank you to everyone who has supported us and kept me strong, we are still on the journey but this time we hope it will have a happy ending.

Here are some pics:
