On July 8th we went in for our second ultrasound and found out that we were indeed having identical twins. They are mono di twins which means they are sharing a sac with a small membrane separating them and sharing one large placenta. This makes my pregnancy higher risk than if it were fraternal twins because there is a risk for twin to twin transfusion. So I will have another ultrasound in a few weeks and then one every other week until I am 28 weeks. I am super excited and nervous for all these changes happening. Looking back over the last year I almost have to laugh a little. It's like the Lord always had a plan to send me twins and he knew that if I had gotten pregnant when we first started trying there would have been no way I could handle it all with Demry being so young. It all makes sense. He could have easily given me fraternal twins and I would have always just thought oh well it was because of the clomid. But he didn't. He sent me identical twins...almost like saying, "look I am in charge and I have a plan. This was always my plan, you just needed to be patient. " I know that now with my whole heart.
Jared bought me a huge van in anticipation for our growing family. His intentions were really good and he thought it would be easier for me with three kids in carseats. I didn't love the idea from the beginning and in hindsight I wish I would have put my foot down. It's a hightop conversion van that seats like 9 or 10. It is the ultimate roadtrip vehicle with tvs and individual dvd players in each seat, but it is just so big and ridiculous that I told him I don't want to keep it. I felt even worse because the second we got it he put a ton of work into it to plastidip it. Then he had to turn around and take it right off. I can't imagine driving it on a daily basis. It is really causing me some stress so I hope that it will sell.
