The not so unexpected I suppose

When I was 19 I had a dream that one of my friends from highschool was pregnant. It was such a vivid and real dream that for (I believe) the only time in my life I picked up the phone and called a person in my dream to find out if I possible dreamt the truth. She sounded surprised, informed me no, and that was that.
2 days later she called me back and was all "ummm... you kind of got me realizing I was late so we went and bought a test and I *am* pregnant". Right. then I fell off my chair because obviously I was psychic ;)
And that was the end of my career as a psychic. Um, except you know how the other day I was telling you about my twin prediction?
Introducing babies A & B:


The freaking out has been minimal so far - i'm assuming due to the fact that I'm waiting for the time when, any minute now, someone says "JUST KIDDING!"
But Eric assures me that the technician did in fact tell us we were having twins, and yes, we did actually see a shot with both of them in it and no I didn't make all of this up.
The tech said they're both right on track with one at 2.25 inches from crown to rump and the other at 2.5. And... OH MY GOD WE'RE HAVING TWINS!

OhMyGawd is right!! Congrats, that's amazing!!

To make you feel a little less freaked out (maybe)....my brother found out that his wife was expecting twins, when his first son was a little less than 3 months old! The kids are 10 months apart (born 1 month early) - might as well have triplets! They're doing excellently!

You'll be a GREAT twin mama! Can't wait to watch that belly grow!

Congratulations on your twins! My twin girls will be 7 next month - i can't believe how fast that all flew by. That first year is a BLUR of sleep-deprivation. Thank god for video & pictures because I barely remember it.

I found you on the Blogher network & saw your tweet looking for twin blogs to follow - I started mine a few months back - shows you what you have to look forward to a few years down the road. My blog is: http://talesoftheburbs.blogspot.com Good luck to you, congratulations & remember to have fun and enjoy every special minute of your twins - they will keep you busy, and smiling!
