Yipes!



Holy smokes people... remember this post when I filled you in on the population explosion on my street? Well I didn't include my friend "L" who lives around the corner and down the street , even though she was due in mid October.

Cuz she doesn't live on my street.

So I was chatting with a mutual friend who asked me had I heard L's big news from last night? Knowing that the standard 20th week ultrasound had not given a gender (pesky umbilical cord positioning) for her baby, I assumed that she had had her baby, and her "big news" was boy or girl.

Yeah... her big news was boy AND girl. Is not apocryphal, urban legend stuff- is a fact, Jack. Personally, I was aghast. I mean, this woman only had the one ultrasound... but it was on state of the art equipment in the freakin' hospital that I plan on delivering in. Naw, I'll be honest, I am aghast because if it can happen once...

I cannot wait to hear the birth story.

Holy crap! She gave birth to twins and didn't know she was having twins until the delivery????!!!! Wow, you will have to post that story.

Yeah, that's nutso. I'm sure you just have one little boy cutie in there even though YOU HAVEN'T POSTED ANY BELLY PHOTOS! (I love them.)

That would be intense for sure. Don't even like to think about it really. Glad I'm not pregnant any more in any case!

So get THIS. I recently read on my message boards (CANNOT. LOOK. AWAY.) that a woman went in for her FOURTH ultrasound (previous miscarriage history) and at the FOURTH u/s, they discovered twins. She was 24 weeks pregnant.

eep!
