First comes love, then comes marriage....

Just in case you are all uninformed about our current status in life, we learned 2.5 weeks ago that we are having a baby! Yes, that's right....Melissa is prego! After a little scare of some spotting over this past weekend, the doctor ordered an ultrasound to make sure the baby was okay. While in the room, the lab tech informed us that the baby's heart rate was 116 bpm. She said the baby looks normal and healthy. She then adjusted her imaging and focused on another mass. Much to our surprise she then stated, "And baby B's heart rate is 124 bpm."
Immediately Mike and I gasped as we realized what this lady was saying. Yes, she was speaking English. And yes, she was informing us that we are pregnant with TWINS!! Wahoo twinners! So you can all feel as special and happy as we currently do (well almost), here are some pictures of our beloved and precious little "A" and "B" babies (that's right, it's plural).
Whole perspective of my innards: including uterus, bladder and two little babies up top.

Close up on the little ones...due October 8-9ish.

Measurements. According to the imaging, they are about 6.5 and 6.4 weeks along.

Anyways, in all seriousness, it was one of the most amazing things for us to wittness their little hearts beat and actually hear them. So, instead of being devastated about the health of the "baby", we felt incredibly blessed to learn there are two which are both alive and healthy.
