Suprise!

There are so many fun things about surprises.. The excitement of them, the feeling when you first find out, the nervousness, the unknown. These feelings all past through Chase and I when we went to our first Dr. Appointment. We found out we were expecting our first baby in March. We could not be more excited! It was perfect timing Chase is graduating, he got a job, im ready to be done working :) haha but we all know we cant plan everything. We went to the dr apt. when I was 10 weeks along which was April 4th. They were so nice! I know I am going to love my Dr.

At this office they do a Ultrasound on your first Apt which I loved! As were in there I noticed two little dots, and if you know me I always jump to the worst conclusion, I thought it was not a real pregnancy, poor little Chase though that it was just a double shot of the baby. Then our nurse yells "there are two babies in there!"



I thought she was joking till she showed us the heart beats of both. I guess I should of looked at Chase more cause the minute the nurse looked at his face she could not stop laughing! and no, we were not on any fertility treatments or medicine ( everyone asks us that ).Needless to say we were both shocked, surprised, excited, nervous, but I could not be more happy. I think the nurse told everyone the story cause as we walked around and met our Dr. everyone was just looking and laughing. I know this is going to be a lot of work, I know that it will be hard, but honestly...TWINS!!! Im so excited. They are due in October, we get to find out the sex on June 2nd. We can find out earlier but honestly we don't want to pay the extra bucks to find out cause lets be honest, we are going to have to save every penny we have from now on to prepare for these little munchkins.

Things I want to remember about my first trimester..
1. I feel every pain in my body. I have always been sensitive to the way my body feels but during pregnancy im extra sensitive, always random cramping, muscles being pulled, needless to say once I found out I was having twins this made more sense.
2. I didnt get sick till 8 weeks and then it hit. I am still super sick but lets hope it lifts a little bit
3. I hate cooking! Cooking makes me gag lol and if you know me this is sooo weird!
4. I am so tired all day everyday, I can fall asleep anywhere now where as before you could not catch me falling asleep unless I was in my bed.
5. Not loving any spicy foods, chips and salsa, all my favorites! Im hating them! Everything taste a little different in my mouth now.
6. Poor Chase is all I have to say for this one....
7. I feel like im not grumpy but I sure do have a shorter Fuse
8. I get lot's of headaches
9.I love being pregnant! might not seem like it as you read these but I love seeing my stomach grow just a little and know I am taking care of two little babies.
10. I have to eat carbs right when I wake up and go to bed or else I get sick. Cereal has become my best friend.
11. In and out protein style cheeseburgers have been my food of choice.
12. Always keep trash bags in your car... Always... :)

Thats all for now :)

Oh my GOSH, Twins?!!?!!!!! Thats amazing!!!! I'm so happy for you guys! You will be such a great mama! How many weeks are you? A lot of women start feeling better around 12 weeks, but for me it wasn't until 16. I hope you feel better soon. I'm convinced that there are few things worse than morning sickness, it is serious hell!

Ps. I love your cooking blog!! I made your potato/chicken casserole the other day and it was SO good! We all loved it. And I added carrots to it as well as the peas and it was super good! We'll for sure make it again!

Jenny Dannels said...

Congrats Dana and Chase!! That is so exciting! You are going to be one busy mama!

Mandy Coffey said...

SHUT UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Isn't sad that nowadays people jump to the conclusion multiple babies must mean science made? WHAT A HUGE BLESSING! THIS IS AMAZING! CONGRATS!!!!!! Now's the time to start signing up on Gerber and Enfamil and all those things- once they find out you're having twins the freebies start rolling in!

Stacie and Jared said...

I still can't get over this, I seriously thought you were lying to me when you told me, but I'm so excited for you guys!!!

THIS IS AWESOME!!!!!!!! TWINS! We are due the same month. I grew up with identical sisters. It was fun to have them around. They are 20 now and both getting married only months apart from each other. You'll have so many fun stories to tell! OKay I have to say I thought headaches were "just apart of pregnancy" but then I would forget to take my folic acid sometimes & on those days, I'd have NO HEADACHES! Maybe look into it? That may be causing yours too?
CONGRATS Dana!

Vanessa said...

Wow! Congratulations Chase and Dana!

SO EXCITING!!! My mom randomly told me on the phone today. I am so happy for you guys :) I think i would have been shocked too (if it was me). So happy for you guys. Love hearing how it is going for you.

janica said...

ahh how exciting!!!!! so happy for you!! you're gonna be the cutest lil momma to twins!

Naomi, Art, and Hyrum said...

WOW!!! That is so exciting! I always wished for twins(I know, call me crazy), but then you can have one delivery of two babies and if you have them first, the other kids will probably be a breeze and you'll have TWO big helpers. We are so excited for you. When can I bring you dinner? That was by far the worst decision to make, so let me make it easy on you. Give me a call! 801 669 1599

BreAnna said...

I can't imagine that surprise, seeing two on the ultrasound. You were meant to be a mom and will be perfect for the task. I'm excited our babies will be so close (except you will probably have them early, and I'm sending myself all sorts of 40 week vibes this time so lets hope they are at least 1 month apart for both our sakes!) I can't wait to watch you in action.

Sarah Peterson said...

Dana, Dana, Dana! We are so absolutely thrilled for you and Chase! That's exciting news! I know it must be scary, but you will be the perfect mother of twins! We're excited that you will be staying in Utah so that we can see you all more!!!
Congratulations to Chase on his new job. Steele saws they are an awesome company! Love you Dana!

Chelsy said...

I know I commented on facebook, but I'm still laughing at the whole situation! When you text me I could not believe it, and yet Rand and I laughed so hard after all the twin jokes you pulled on me! And I second Aarean...I kind of laughed when you said 'ready to be done with work'. Oh it's just the beginning, yet so much more enjoyable! I'm so excited for you! Can't wait to find out what you are having so we can start picking out outfits with you!!! SO SAD you will be living up north by then...the fun we could have had every day! We'll have to have 'field trip days' when all settles down! :o)
