The doctor's appointment went well. They're not sure what caused the bleeding but they did the ultrasound and an exam and things look great. I felt like everything was going to be okay, but the ultrasound did give me the piece of mind I had hoped it would.
When the lady came in to do the ultrasound, she said she'd do what she needed to and then show us what she saw. James was kind of leaning over me watching her and I just kind of stared up at the ceiling because I couldn't see the screen. As James was watching, he kind of smiled at me and held up two fingers. He said, "I think I see two.". I didn't think that was funny. I told him to quit messing with me. He said he wasn't and asked the tech if he was counting right. She just said she'll show us as soon as she was finished. A few minutes later she turned the monitor so I could see it and there were two. She said, "Yeah, there are two of them!" I couldn't believe it. She said they're each in their own sac and the membrane between them is thick which means they're probably fraternal instead of identical. She said the only way to know for sure is if when we go in for the 20 week ultrasound we find out one is a girl and one is a boy or if they're the same sex, we'll have to wait until they're born. Was she seriously talking to us? I started crying after she labeled them baby A and baby B. We got to hear each of their heartbeats and they were nice and strong. We could see their hearts beating on the screen. It was wonderful. Those really are our babies. We're going to have two babies.
I didn't understand why it took so long for us to get pregnant. It was hard to see past the pain sometimes, but God had a plan. He knew we needed a bigger house for the blessing He had in store for us. I believe the only reason I had the spotting and the blood was so we would be brought in for the ultrasound so we could find out about both babies :)
