Brett and I have been married 2 and a half years... time flies! We bought a house last year and are living here in Gardner, KS. He is working for a web design company in Olathe and I am teaching 4th grade at Madison Elementary.
Brett and I had been trying for almost a year. Finally, with a little help from the doctor, I was able to produce a positive pregnancy test! I knew right after conceiving that I was pregnant even though my mom told me there was no way, unless it was twins. Little did we know it was actually twins... at 6 weeks we did the first ultrasound. There I saw two little heart beats on the screen. When I got home I handed the picture to Brett and his reaction was, "Why are there two?" All I could do was laugh, and then with a fearful face he gave me a big hug! At 9 weeks we confirmed the two were growing and both at a perfectly healthy size! Our minds have finally adjusted to the fact that everything will be X2 and we are nothing but excited.
