seeing double

so , i went to the doctor today and can you believe, i was there for 3 hours? with the drive there and back i was gone for almost 4 hours! that’s crazy! i don’t think i’ve ever had a doctors appointment that was that long! thankfully, i had gotten a babysitter instead of dropping the kids off at a friends house because i would have felt bad for the poor soul who had to watch my kiddos for 4 hours and NOT get paid for it! at least i knew the babysitter was getting paid good money and i could be gone as long as i wanted, or needed to be!

 

during my appointment they did a lot of question asking, poking and prodding, checking and scanning and this is what they found:

 

Baby A Baby B 16 weeks edit

 

i know it’s hard to make anything out on this picture. if it weren’t for the typed explanation you probably wouldn’t have any idea what you were looking at (they were not cooperating when we wanted to get a joint picture). but this one from 6 weeks ago is a bit more obvious and less mistakable:

 

twins 10 weeks

 

now the big question:                what are we having?

 

i’m not saying we will tell, that is still undecided, but if you want to play along it would be fun for us to see what the general consensus is!

 

happy guessing!

Uh . . . WHAT?? What a surprise! Twins? If this is a surprise pregnancy for you . . . WOW is all I can say. I'm kind of speechless right now :) CONGRATULATIONS!!
I certainly hope you get a boy for one of them! You're Wonder Woman Miss Mahina!

WOW! great news, congrats!

so, i am going to say boys, just for fun! but i know how annoying people can be with their "you hoping for a boy" comments and all that junk! girls are pretty cool, but that would be exciting if you were up for twin boys!

good luck and i hope your feeling well!

YEA!!!!!!!!!! I am so excited for you. I actually screamed when I saw the picture. Oh--how I wish I was having another baby right now. I would love to hear what you are having--but if it is 2 more beautiful girls you will be a lucky family no matter what.

Congrats, Mahina! So exciting. I love your mom's comment. I'll go with that. One girl, one boy. :)

Sara said...

Okay...so I just found out on fb that you're pregnant! With twins!!!! Wahoooo!!!!! I have been wishing and hoping and praying you would have twins (now let's see if the next wish comes true!). I know just how long you've wanted 2 for the price if 1. ;) Best wishes to ALL of you. And I'm going to say...two boys. It could happen!! (thankfully you'll have all those sweet little "mommies" to help keep them from burning the house down!). Hey and I'm glad you're enjoying your Blendtec. I've been making strawberry "daquiri" type shakes this week. Mmmmmm...

Mahina, how exciting for you and Mitch! Twins!! I like everyone else didn't seem to know either..how are you feeling? When is your due date? I know you probably would like at least one boy but even if they are girls it will be great!
