:: :: just one :: ::



well, the news of the day is that i'm definitely only carrying one baby. yesterday we had an ultrasound (not the ultrasound - still no idea if i am having a boy or a girl) and within about one second of her putting the goop on my belly and then pressing the wand somewhat uncomfortably into my abdomen i saw it: just one baby.

i've got boy-girl twins on both sides of my family -- my mom's siblings and my dad's aunt and uncle and maybe others. and the first time around i never even had the inclination that i might be having twins, but this time i was getting the vibe.

don't get me wrong, i'm relieved that i'm only having one because oh my god we would need two new cars and some serious babysitting help with twins but there was a definite twinge of disappointment in there, too, which shocked the hell out of me.

but today i'm back to just feeling relieved. one baby. just one. yay for one.
