I’ve got a secret…*

It's Twins! via www.thenovicechefblog.com

So um, remember when I blamed not posting for a month on buying a new house? Well, I lied. It’s more like I was so exhausted that I couldn’t make myself get into the kitchen!

Jorge and I have been trying to have a baby for a long time. We kept the struggle to ourselves because it’s something that is really weird and uncomfortable to talk about. So after 3 years, we were beyond thrilled to discover we were pregnant the day after Christmas.

Then in January, we found out that it wasn’t just one baby, but TWO. I wish we had a video of us in the ultrasound room finding out it was twins. We were sitting there watching the screen and the ultrasound tech said “Here is one side…and here is the other side.”. We just looked at her like ok, we get it…that’s both sides of the baby. So she said it again…and when we still didn’t get it, she zoomed out to show us that there were TWO little bubbles side by side. I immediately sat up and screamed “IT’S TWINS?!!!” followed by manic laughter. Once Jorge realized what was going on, he started jumping around the room and laughing too.

(Don’t they look like evil cat eyes or owl eyes here??)

We just couldn’t believe our luck! We hoped and prayed for a baby for so long…and to get blessed with two? Well, we just couldn’t believe our luck. Most people are terrified of twins, we are just so thankful. We know it’s going to be a lot of work, but at least I only have to do pregnancy once!

Speaking of pregnancy, I have had a peach of a time. I honestly can not complain! I completely skipped over morning sickness (which with twins is a serious surprise) and have been lucky to avoid most of the common complaints. The first two months I was extremely tired all the time. Little things like walking the dog or eating lunch would exhaust me. Going from never being a napper, to a two a day napper was quite a change! I felt like I couldn’t get anything done! I have also suffered from awful heartburn, but I will take heartburn over morning sickness every day.

ultrasound 2

This is my last ultrasound from a month ago. My family has been calling the babies the Chicken and a Duck since we got this latest ultrasound. We are happy to be going in later this week when they are finally going to look like actual babies! With hands and feet and everything! :-)

Thank you to all of you for sticking with me when I was out of commission in January. As you can see, I really did have a good reason! I promise not to turn this into a pregnancy/kid blog, but I will be updating some as we go through this process. …Two cribs, double strollers, and triple the crying (two for them and one for me)…but also quadruple the love. Wish us luck as we go from a family of two to a family of four this August!

    Congrats! We’re expecting twins due early July. You’re luckier than me- I’m 20 weeks and still throwing up! :( But we’ve got a healthy daughter and son in there and though it’s terrifying, we couldn’t be more excited. We were shocked too- I wish we had video!

    Oh my goodness! You know, when I saw your tweet today about wanting somebody to make you fried chicken, bacon collard greens, and banana pudding, I was going to reply and ask if you were having pregnancy cravings! But then I thought about it and didn’t want to put you on the spot like that. Congratulations though! I guess I was right? I am so happy for you!

    Congratulations!!! I’m due with boy/girl twins any day now, with an induction scheduled for the 27th (at 37.5 weeks). You’re so fortunate you didn’t get any morning sickness! I was super sick until about 18 weeks. At our first ultrasound I had asked my husband to record the heartbeat and he caught the whole “ITS TWO?!” On video, pretty fantastic moment :). I hope you continue to have a wonderful pregnancy, the stretching is tough (specially with your first pregnancy, this is my second) but it just gets cooler and cooler as time moves towards your due date.

    My son and daughter-in-law had the same experience of not being able to conceive and then getting pregnant with twins boys! Yes, a lot of work in the first few years, but it gets easier. They are now five and such good friends and playmates and such a joy to the entire family. You will get asked a zillion times, are they twins? You learn to smile and nod. Congratulations! You will have so much fun with them.

    Many congratulations and blessings to you and Jorge. I wish you the happiest and healthiest of pregnancies. I have 6 year old twins and the time flies, so cherish every day! The first year, especially, flies by!
    The best advice I received those early days: accept help when it is offered and do your best to get them on a schedule. I remember when we found it was twins, the u/s tech told my husband to sit down, he looked like he was going to pass out.

    Congrats, and lots of luck to you and your growing family! (no more cake batter martini recipes coming our way for the next 7 months, eh?;p – ok, since you can’t see my actual blog trekking on your site…I got in through the SITS girls where you linked Cake Batter Martinis…but I’ll be fully content with a little baby talk and yummy new recipes!)

    Congratulations!!! I don’t normally post comments much. I just love looking at your awesome blog and trying out your yummy recipes. But I couldn’t help but send you my congratulations. Having struggled myself with getting pregnant with my first daughter (it took us over 3 years too), I know how it feels, from the struggle to the excitement of finding out. Thank you for sharing the great news and thank you for your sharing your talent in the kitchen through this blog. I wish you a happy and healthy rest of your pregnancy :-)

    Congrats! I hope you manage to skip over the sickness all together, it is not a fun thing. After the first month I had it almost my whole pregnancy :/
    The exhaustion is crazy I felt like I had no idea where my days were going lol
    You’re announcement is completely adorable and the shoes are, as earlier stated, killer.
    Congrats again!!
