Double Blessings!!!!

On June 18, 2010 we found out they we were PREGNANT!!!!!! I called our nurse around 11 am and she told me that she had just gotten our results from the blood test I took that morning. She said the she would like to be the first one to congratulate us on our pregnancy. Thinking about that moment I get chills and my eyes are filled with tears as I type this. We knew God would provide a family for us but I didn't know that I would get to carry our own children. How precious are his blessings!
For the next three weeks I went every 3 days to draw my blood to make sure my numbers were doubling like they should be. They were, in fact they were always a little higher than expected each time. Kris and I were on cloud 9 and could not wait for our first ultrasound which was on July 9, 2010. On July 9th we drove down to Austin for our appointment to be able to see a precious heartbeat. While waiting in the room for the doctor to come Kris and I could not stop smiling and talking about our excitement. The doctor came in and said "lets see what we can find". Let me tell you first that I knew what to look for because I have seen plenty of ultrasound pictures between family, friends and the Internet. So right away I saw two round circles that looked like sacs to hold babies. I barley started asking my question if there were two babies when the doctor cut me off to ask if we were fine with TWO BABIES! I soooooo wish I had a camera to capture our faces, we were over joyed. I looked over to Kris and his expression melted my heart. Not only did we see two babies but also saw and heard two healthy heartbeats. Baby A measured 6weeks6days with 119 heartbeat bpm and Baby B measured 6weeks5days with a heartbeat at 124bpm. Below are some pictures I have so far, they are not the best because they are from my phone camera.

My first pregnancy test I took on my own after finding out my blood test results. I had to see a positive test after years of negative ones.

Their very first picture, three days after conception!
