Welcome to the Dwight and Velna Blood Family Blog

The purpose of the Dwight and Velna Blood family blog is to provide a gathering place to collect family history, photos, family news, memorabilia, and whatever else we can think of.  Let's all see where we can take it.

It's Twins!!

Some of you already know this, but for those of you that don't, or that don't follow our blog I will post our news here.  

We were surprised to find out we were pregnant a few months ago and even more surprised a few weeks later when my first ultrasound at 10 weeks revealed twins.  I think that shock didn't wear off for a few weeks for all of us.  We just had another ultrasound on Friday and both babies are growing and seem to be doing well.  I knew they were in there, but seeing them again brought back the same sense of disbelief.  

We didn't tell Ella about the twins until my appointment on Friday and she was so cute and so excited, although since then she has posed the question more than once "How are you going to take care of all of us?" What a great question.  Sometimes I wonder that myself, but I know we will manage.

I am due September 27th, although full term for twins is actually 3 weeks earlier than that.  I hope to keep them in as long as possible.  I am posting the ultrasound pictures from my last ultrasound.  The top picture is one of the babies, the second is the other baby, and the third is them hanging out together bunk bed style.  Our next ultrasound is April 23rd where we hope to find out the sexes.  Our family blog is private so if you haven't been invited and would like to be, just leave your e-mail in a comment on this post and I will send you an e-mail.
