Seriously?! :)

Ok so from the day I found out we were going to have a baby I joked around with James about the possibility of having twins. Its something that I always thought would be fun! So from that day on I teased him constantly. Well when we finally got to Tennessee it took forever for me to get an appointment to see a Doctor. I am use to having an ultrasound done right away to confirm pregnancy. The Army does things a little differently. Well about two weeks after moving into our apartment I started cramping really bad. I was so sad because I thought this meant I was miscarrying. So James took me to the ER to determine what was going on. When I got there they were concerned about a number of things from threatened miscarriage to an ectopic pregnancy. So the treatment was to determine my HCG levels and do an ultrasound. So they wheeled me into ultrasound and the tech started doing her job. I asked her if she saw a heartbeat and she told me she couldn't tell me because I was an emergency patient and it was hospital policy. I was not she knew what was going on and i couldn't know. Well after a little bit of her looking at the screen she started in on the small talk....her question that made me kinda think she was being weird was she asked me how many kids I had at home....well...I said...I have two. Well she got this big smile on her face and told me she shouldn't tell me this but I was about to have two more.......tears started streaming down my face and after that she said....and they both have heartbeats. I had so many emotions running through me at once. But the one that remained constant was that I was so lucky and so blessed to have this amazing opportunity. Then came uncontrollable laughter as I thought how I was going to tell my husband who was patiently waiting in my room. Here is a picture of our little miracles.

So as the tech is wheeling me back to my room Im trying to decide how to tell James. I really had no idea what he was going to say. We had decided that this was going to be my last baby. I had wanted four kids but because it had taken so long for us to get pregnant we decided this would be our last. I guess Heavenly Father granted my wish with one pregnancy! haha....anyways I just decided to hand the picture to James and let that tell him. He just looked at it and said "What is this"...I said well those are our babies. I think we both laughed for about twenty mins. At this point I was only 8 weeks along. Now I am 15 weeks and our babies have grown so much. We still don't know the sexes we probably won't find out for another couple of weeks but we are so excited and feel so blessed to bring these little spirits into the world. I fall in love with them more and more every time I see them and as far as we know they are paternal twins not identical. So this is the new and exciting news in the Craig family. :)
