It was so much fun making this video and reliving everyone’s excitement over again. We got our first ultrasound at 6 weeks on September 5, 2017. That was the day we found out we were having twins. We got a call from our fertility nurse right after and we had to confirm that we only put one embryo in. I still couldn’t believe that we had two babies. We did genetic testing on all our embryos which is why we knew the sex of the baby. I called later that day and they confirmed that we put one embryo in and it was a boy. So because the embryo was a boy and it split, they would both be boys.
There was no way I could keep this twin secret from my parents. I needed to tell someone because I was kind of freaking out. Justin had to go to work so we had to wait until that evening to call. We told our parents we wanted to reveal the gender of the baby. They were thinking were going to say boy or girl and instead surprised them with twins. We didn’t tell them the gender until later, but that didn’t stop my mother in law and my dad from trying to get me to tell them. My dad would call me and say “how are the girls doing today?” just to try and trick me. So rude! 🙂
We really wanted to tell the rest of our family in person, so we decided to keep it a secret until we could all be together. It was the hardest secret to keep! It was hard not to say plural responses like “heartbeats” and “babies” when talking to my sisters. It took a lot of mental practice! It was totally worth the wait to see their reaction in person. The more people we told the more excited we got. We are so excited to meet these two boys in April!
