Friday I had my first ultrasound. And I am pleased to announce that we have one beautiful bean growing away. I made the tech look extra hard to be sure there wasn't another lurking behind in the shadows and she assured me there was only one. My Doctor did say not to be surprised if another one showed up later on.

So, how do I feel about one. Good. Although I would have been happy with two, one means that I get to have my midwives again. And have another home birth. When you have twins you automatically become high-risk and thus not allowed to have a midwife or have them at home. This works out very well for me.

And having confirmation of my little bean meant I could take out the maternity pants without guilt. Thank goodness my older Sister gave me a whack load of Mat clothes that included not one but, two pairs of cool jeans, which is exactly what I needed. My belly has already grown enough that it is uncomfortable with my regular jeans. I can at least keep wearing my regular sweaters and shirts, just change up the pants for now. I am only switching a few weeks before I did for J so that's not too bad.

As for my back, well it is getting better, just a lot slower than I had hoped. We will keep on keepin' on and hopefully will resume some regularly scheduled fun in the near future.

Congrats!!!!! I am so excited for you!!!! And yes, I found myself in maternity MUCH earlier with the second. Maybe because I knew just how much more comfortable it was than my regular clothes....

One bean, One bean... better than no beans.

I, too, am looking forward to hearing all about this new chapter of your life.

This sounds so wonderful, it makes me want to get off this couch right now and walk, no run, to the calendar to count the remaining days of my cycle so I can book my blood test...

Happy pregnancy!
