I'm sure everyone who regularly reads this blog is aware that, last year, my wife Jen and I had a baby boy. Unfortunately, we lost him after only three days. It remains the single hardest thing either of us have ever gone through. I like to think we're stronger for it.
We knew pretty much right away we would be trying again once Jen had recovered physically and we were both emotionally ready.
Today Jen had her 12-week scan. She's pregnant!
Not only that guys, but there is another Skywalker.
We're having twins.
We were a little unsure at first, because the second one was so much smaller than the first, coming in at half the size. However Jen was brought in for another scan two weeks later, and to our surprise, the smaller twin had caught up to the larger one in size. At the scan today it was confirmed that everything looks good. Both twins are actually 7cm, which is 2cm longer than you'd expect for this stage.
The due date is around January 15th, but we've been told that they'll likely take her in early for an elective c-section. There's even a chance we could have them in time for Christmas!
So please forgive me if I've been a bit quiet lately. It's been so hard to keep this quiet. We're absolutely thrilled and I'll be keeping everyone up to date on the progress of our two little dots.
PS: Oh my god, we're having twins!! How the hell did this happen? Argh!! :-p
