Two

I had my mid cycle ultrasound today. I did ovulate on my own already, probably yesterday, so I didn't need the hcg shot. That was good. I uh, I ovulated TWO eggs, in fact. Or at least there were two very large follicles visible.

So um... Trying not to assume TWINS here. Doctor assured me that two follicles doesn't necessarily mean both eggs got picked up by the fallopian tubes. Or that even if they did, both didn't necessarily get fertilized. But still. She said my odds are probably one in ten of having twins. Normal odds are one in seventy. So that's... considerably HIGHER. Ahem.

The bright side is, I'd be getting two kids for the price of one in terms of pregnancy. And pregnancy is not that fun for me, so, score!

There was a long weekend when I was early in my pregnancy with Harper when the doctor thought we might be having twins and we had to wait four days for the ultrasound!

Anyway the thought of having twins was exciting to me, and now seems VERY POSSIBLE for you, so, yay!

Woohoo. For your sake, I hope it's not twins, but I'd love to see two babies!

Fingers crossed for one or two. Either way!

AIEE! It's so strange to KNOW about the two egg thing. As opposed to a "surprise, TWINS!" sitch. Nice that they ratchet the anxiety up to max levels that way.

Like Chelle, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for one OR two for you.

OMG!
