"I was pregnant. It was my first time. The moment I saw the double lines is a favorite moment in it's own right. But I went to the doctor. I was only 8 or 9 weeks along and I just wanted him to tell me I was indeed pregnant, because I'd already been sick to my stomach for a week and if I was making that up in my mind I knew I'd feel real embarrassed in front of my husband. The second the ultrasound began, the nurse practitioner yelled out, "OH MY GOODNESS! YOU ARE HAVING TWINS!" I got up on my elbows and yelled "WHAT?!!!" But I automatically could see two little beans up on that TV screen and knew it wasn't a joke. I just kept saying, "What?! I can't believe it! What?!" And my husband smiled, shook his head, and calmly said, "I knew it."Twins = double hearts.
In the parking lot he called his mom and I called my mom and my mother and I kept saying, "I can't believe it!" and "I know! I can't believe it!" back and forth to each other for 10 minutes. I kissed my husband and he drove back to school and I drove back to work, where nobody knew I was even pregnant yet.
The rest of the day my coworkers kept talking to me about meetings but I was just in a daze with a bewildered smile on my face, and the entire time the only thing I could was, "I'm going to have to get two highchairs..." It might have been the craziest and most bewildering moment of my life." —Samantha
