Ummmmm.........TWINS?????

I was working on the computer late one night when Tasha gently laid a pregnancy test on the desk. "What do you think of that?" she asked. Both of us didn't think it was possible (especially considering our track record of getting children after 4 yrs of trying), so she got another test out. Positive. "Maybe they're old pregnancy tests," I said. At 11:30pm Tasha went to Wal-Mart to get some new tests. Sure enough, even the new one showed positive.

Shocker! We were really excited, but needed to wait a couple weeks to confirm this with the OB. At this appointment, they brought us to their ultrasound room. After a little looking, the doctor asked, "Do you want the good news or bad news first." As you know, we don't like to be teased about "bad news" at all, so we were quickly relieved (kind of) when he said that we were having TWINS, "which is the good and the bad news".

Needless to say we left the OB office in total shock. That turned out to be the beginning of many realizations. The first came as we approached our car...yep-we suddenly realized that our Lexis is now too small. Four carseats and sedans just don't mix. SUV? Nope. Not when you consider we would be the ones having to crawl over the middle seat to buckle in Kaya/Maleah or the twins in the back. So minivan here we come--and yes, I'm actually getting more and more excited about it. And the list of realizations is getting longer. For now, we are just plain excited.

Due date is mid November, and yes, this time we'll find out what we are going to have.

Well, let me tell you it is a adventure!! But well worth the fun. Our too not so little twins will be one is less than a month!! Hope you find a minivan, and don't buy too much twin stuff just yet, we are just getting to the point we were are outgrowing a lot of what you will need, and we will be happy to pass some(if not all of it) on to you guys. : ) Depends on what you guys get I guess. Just in case you do need stuff, babies r us has a twin discount, and so does the osk gosh outlet I heard. You can also go online to learn a lot about twin deals on things!! :) We just need to get together, and talk about all these things! Julie (Preboski) Bryan

I can't believe you'll be doubling your family :) Why get a minivan when you can get the comfort of an 08 Toyota Highlander Hybrid (you can even get it so you can walk back to the third row :)

Hip Hip Horay! I am so happy for you on so many levels. Congrats on being pregnant. What a great thing. Congrats on TWINS. Bri's neices are twins and they are adorable. They entertain each other and are the easiest on Brian's sister and bro in law. Congrats on getting a van! They are the best thing ever. I wasn't too excited about the idea and in fact thought it jumped me up 10 years as I drove it but now I wouldn't get anything else. They are so practical. They drive like a caddilac and get great gas mileage. I love ours. I can't wait til this one breaks down and we can get the new and improved ones with the stow and go. That'll be the day!!! Good luck. Let's all get together. It's been so long. Oh and my last congrats goes to you guys finding out what you are going to have. That is so exciting.
