Bump at 17 weeks and gender reveal ;)


As some of you know Lola is going to be a big sister in June. We were really happy to find out we were pregnant as we wanted Lola to have a sibling close in age. So when it came to the first scan I told Julian I was ok to go alone as it was just going to be a formality where I would be told the due date and really there was no point for Julian to be taking a day off.
I drove to Auckland, dropped Lola off at my parents. Told my mum I had an appointment with our accountant and off I went to the clinic. We were planning to keep this pregnancy a secret until Christmas as we thought it would be nice to announce this wonderful news to our families during the festivities. At least that was our plan...Anyway, I got to the clinic, went into doctor's office and the scan began. For the first couple of minutes everything seemed fine. Doctor showed me this tiny peanut on the screen, pointed to the heart and said everything looked fine. And then his facial expression changed and he went silent...As you can imagine, it totally freaked me out as I was positive something was really wrong. Then after a moment he said quietly: " I think I see 2..." I thought I misheard him. All I was able to say was a loud "What?!" Then the doctor repeated what he had said earlier, this time in a more confident voice...I simply could not believe it...I was told I needed to go to another clinic the next day to have another scan to confirm that in fact I was pregnant with twins...As I sat in shock in the office waiting for the paperwork, all I was trying to do was to hold it together and not cry...Until today I am unable to describe how unexpected this news was. I mean, if somebody had asked me what I thought was more likely, me winning lotto or having twins, without a doubt I would have said winning lotto...Everyone at the clinic seemed super excited and I just couldn't wait to leave and give Julian a call. As soon as I got in the car I phoned him and when he answered I burst into tears...poor guy thought that either we were not pregnant or something was seriously wrong. When I finally told him, he just started laughing and said he was coming to Auckland to go to scan with me the next day. I went to my parents to pick up Lola and I knew there was no way I could keep a straight face and not say anything to my mum, who was convinced I just went to have a meeting with the accountant. The second she saw me she knew something happened. So there was no more keeping the secret, I told her I was pregnant again, but this time she would be most likely getting 2 grandchildren...As you can imagine she was over the moon...The next day Julian and I went for another scan where it was confirmed that there were 2 babies cooking in the oven...We were also told they were going to be identical, which meant that we were having either 2 boys or two girls...and for some time now we have known that Lola will be a big sister to...2 little BOYS :)

Jak wiekszosc z Was wie, w czerwcu Lola zostanie starsza siostra. Mimo, ze to nie byla latwa decyzja, to wiadomosc o ciazy bardzo nas ucieszyla, bo chcielismy, zeby miala rodzenstwo w zblizonym wieku. Kiedy nadszedl czas na pierwsze usg, powiedzialam Julianowi, ze nie ma sensu, zeby bral dzien wolny, ze to tylko formalnosc, powiedza mi kiedy mam termin i w zasadzie to tyle, wiec naprawde moge jechac sama. Zapakowalam Lole do samochodu i ruszylysmy do Auckland. Po przyjezdzie zostawilam Ja z babcia, ktorej powiedzialam, ze ide na spotkanie z ksiegowym...Plan byl taki, zeby nic nie mowic o ciazy az do Bozego Narodzenia, bo wtedy po pierwsze zaczelibysmy drugi trymestr, a po drugie pomyslelismy, ze to bedzie dobra okazja, zeby podzielic sie ta wiadomoscia z naszymi rodzinami. Po raz kolejny przekonalam sie, ze wszystkiego nie da sie zaplanowac...W kazdym razie pojechalam do kliniki, zaraz poproszono mnie do gabinetu i zaczelo sie usg. Na poczatku wszystko standardowo, tak jak pamietalam to z ciazy z Lola. Lekarz pokazal mi malego orzeszka na monitorze, powiedzial, ze serce bije i, ze wszystko wyglada dobrze. A potem troche zmienil mu sie wyraz twarzy i zamilkl. Jak mozecie sobie wyobrazic w myslach zaczelam juz panikowac i bylam pewna, ze cos jest nie tak. Po chwili lekarz wymamrotal pod nosem cos co brzmialo jak: "Chyba jest dwojka". Ja bylam przekonana, ze sie przeslyszalam i jedyne na co bylo mnie stac, to wypowiedzenie glosnego: "Co??!!" Lekarz powtorzyl, to co powiedzial kilka minut wczesniej, tym razem juz pewniejszym tonem...Myslalam, ze chyba snie...po czym poinformowal mnie, ze nastepnego dnia musze miec kolejne usg w innej klinice, ktore na 100% potwierdzi czy jest to ciaza blizniacza. Kiedy tak siedzialam w gabinecie i czekalam na swoja dokumentacje z calych sil staralam sie jakos trzymac i nie plakac. To byl taki szok, ze do dzis nie moge w to uwierzyc ani tego opisac. Gdyby ktos zapytal mnie kilka miesiecy wczesniej co wedlug mnie jest bardziej prawdopodobne, moja wygrana w lotka czy to, ze bede mama blizniat, to bez wahania odpowiedzialabym, ze oczywiscie wygrana w lotka...Wszyscy w przychodni byli super podekscytowani, a ja nie moglam sie doczekac, zeby wyjsc i zadzwonic do Juliana. Jak tylko znalazlam sie w samochodzie, wykrecilam Jego numer i gdy uslyszalam Jego glos, to oczywiscie sie rozplakalam. A on biedny myslal, ze albo nie jestesmy w ciazy, albo cos jest bardzo nie tak...Gdy w koncu oznajmilam Mu, ze prawdopodobnie to blizniaki, to zaczal sie smiac i powiedzial, ze przyjezdza do Auckland, zeby byc na jutrzejszym usg. Ja pojechalam do rodzicow po Lole i wiedzialam, ze z utrzymania sekretu nici, bo moja mina mowila wszystko. Kiedy mama mnie zobaczyla od razu wiedziala, ze cos sie stalo, tyle, ze Ona myslala, ze mam jakies zle wiesci od ksiegowego...Gdy wyznalam Jej, ze ponownie bedzie babcia, ale tym razem w pakiecie dostanie dwojke wnuczat, byla oczywiscie wniebowzieta...Nastepnego dnia pojechalismy z Julianem na usg, gdzie potwierdzono, ze maluchow jest rzeczywiscie dwoje. Powiedziano nam takze, ze sa to bliznieta jednojajowe, co oznaczalo, ze Lola bedzie miala albo dwoch mlodszych braci, albo dwie mlodsze siostry...Ja od poczatku mialam przeczucie, co do plci i okazalo sie, ze intuicja mnie nie zawiodla... Lola bedzie starsza siostra...dwoch malych CHLOPCOW :)
