Q: How do you make God laugh?

A: Tell Him your plans.

We interrupt our regularly-scheduled balanced, normal post about things that annoy me and/or food that I like and/or stuff I did over the weekend to announce that AFTER MONTHS AND MONTHS AND MONTHS OF NOT GETTING PREGNANT AT ALL, I APPARENTLY GOT PREGNANT TWICE IN THE SAME MONTH AND AM CARRYING TWINS.

UPDATE

Thank you all for the congratulations and well wishes. I am extremely excited and extremely overwhelmed. Have I mentioned that I have ONLY ONE VAGINA????!!!! How on earth am I going to do this? And, once they're born, how on earth will I be able to imagine life without either one of them.

By the way, even though I'm not yet a mom (hopefully soon!), this site is rather amazing. Refreshing. And real. http://shapeofamother.blogspot.com/.

Oh good lord. You have GOT to be kidding me. Are you? OH! I'm so happy for you and if you ever need someone to talk to, you know my friend Adrianne's twin daughters just turned a year old so she can definitely fill you in.
WOW!

I don't even know what to say. As a joke, I thought it would be cute to send you a new header pic with a baby carriage incorporated but PUH-LEASE tell me how I'm supposed to fit TWO in there?!

Congratulations. =)

OH OH OH!!! I'm speechless over here, and that almost never happens! I've always wondered what it would be like to parent two sweet muffin babies at the same time, now I'll find out. This is so exciting!

Oh.My.God. We prayed too hard for you!

My niece became unexpectedly pregnant six months after she married. I had just found out I was pregnant too. Our sonograms were done within days of each other. "I'm having a GIRL" I said. Days later, "OMG, I'm having TWINS! BOYS!"

Life's an adventure. She went full term, no complications, and delivered two boys out of one vagina without medication. Each baby weighed more than 7 pounds!

You can do it! It's hard but God will give you a sense of humour to laugh through the worst parts.
