I am so overwhelmed because yesterday was literally the best day of my life. I went for my ultrasound and I was so scared I couldn't talk or focus on anything. It felt like an enternity before we got in to see the ultrasound tech and I had to remind myself to breath. I tried to "relax" during the external ultra sound and to fill myself with positive thoughts. That lasted about 2 minutes before I started to panic. It felt like the tech wasn't able to find my embabies so I freaked out a bit. I told her how nervous I was and she could sense my panic. She told me that my bladder wasn't as full as she would have liked so it was just a bit harder to see. I explained that I had a bladder infection and filling it was kind of painful and hard to do. She was very understanding and told me she would tell me as soon as she saw anything. Thankfully, within seconds she found one and then another heartbeat. It was such a relief and I just started bawling uncontrollably. She was super sweet and even held my shaking legs. Then I snuck out to get hubby for the internal ultrasound and we got to see the heartbeats together. It was an incredible moment and even hubby had tears in his eyes. Baby A's heartbeat was 146 and Baby B's was 157. I have refrained from goggling heartbeats and choose to believe when the nurse told me that everything was perfect.
I can finally breath and I can't believe this is actually happening. It has been such a long road and it feels like my dreams of having a family might actually come true. I can't help but think that I wouldn't be here without my sister. I don't know how I got so lucky to have such an amazing sister but I am truly grateful!!
