  3. So, should we all be doing this too? Or will we get in trouble for ripping off the idea again? :)

  4. So, the look on your wifes face when telling you it was twins was what? Excitement or fear? lol.
    We all found out together at my 20 week u/s. We even brought my older 2 kids in with us so we could find out the sex of the bab(Y) and the first thing she said was “oh, you’re having twins” ROFL…I’ll never forget the look on my husbands face,lol
