One year ago today we had our first ultrasound for our first pregnancy. Although very nervous, we were thrilled.
Two little squirmy bodies greeted us on the screen. Shock, joy, and relief best described that day. We didn’t know until that day that we were carrying twins, but were overjoyed at the news. I felt extreme relief as I went from having a “huge” belly with one to actually carrying fairly small for two.
Forever our lives were changed that day.
I sit, trying to work. Images of my belly, screen shots of the girls, and memories of sharing our news crowd out all thoughts of newsletters, phone calls, and business related tasks.
Tears roll down my face.
Memories flood back of Hallowe’en last year. The ultrasound room, our families faces as we showed them a little heel directly by a little head, our frantic calculations of how we were going to make two work.
I don’t know how I will hand out candy at the door this year. Too many conversations with neighbours last year crowd into my thoughts.
How the year has changed us. November 12 looms ahead … I find it hard to breathe.
