ultrasound video

First Ultrasound from travispitcher on Vimeo.

Most of the sound in this video was cut out and replaced by pretty music.
So you can't hear me hyperventilating or the horrible music at the clinic, except a little at the beginning.
I have been anxious to have this up online and harassed Travis to edit it all day yesterday. This morning he did it in about a half-hour.
Actually, less probably.
So here it is.
You can hear the technician say "You're pregnant with twins."
Since most of us can't read ultrasounds, and every time I show them to people they're like "Yeah right, I'll take your word for it. I can't see anything."
And part of me thinks some people still don't really believe me.
Like my grandmother.
And a note to my grandmas: You have to make two quilts now. You can't just make one.
If these boys were born a year apart you would make them each their own quilt.
They are different people. They each need their own blankets.
Okay. Back to this movie:
It's awesome, right?

Maybe it's just my pregnant hormones, but I cried watching this. So sweet. Thanks for sharing your moment with us :D

I bawled. But like Joy, it could very possibly be my pregnancy hormones as well.

Haha, "Oh my gosh, are you kidding me?"

Oh, Becky that is such a treasured moment to have on film. And yes I cried too. So did Paul. And neither one of us are pregnant!

Polly said...

OK Travis your amazing, your filming didn't get shaky or anything after she said Twins. Jared said he can't wait to see the birth video. Of course I cried, I've been crying off and on for days.

Carol said...

It WAS AWESOME! You're making our home videos look relly stupid. That was a very sweet video. Thanks!

Claire said...

Ohhhhhh! How wonderful to have this filmed! You too are so blessed.

I love this video. Love love love it.

Happy day.

This is so cool and so amazing. It made me cry and I definitely am not pregnant. I am so happy for you guys. Wow! Leave it to you, Becky, to do it with a splash!

Jessica D. said...

I cried too and I'm NOT pregnant so I can't even blame the hormones. Gah. I'm so happy and anxious for you. This is an amazingly wonderful video.

Jessica D. said...

Also, I just watched Travis' videos of the families reactions that is just priceless. I love it.

Lisa said...

The video was beautiful. And let me tell you, it took me couple days to process the fact that you are having twins too. It took me a while already to process that you are pregnant and now you are telling me you are having TWINS!!!??? Having babies seemed scary and hard, but it's also so beautiful the same time. Kinda like life ne?....hehe..

I will never forget that one day we stayed home 5 years ago, you told me you can't wait to be a mom. Look at you now!!!

p.s. I watched harry potter today, and i thought about you and your family soooo much. Also, I was in muji, and they have the cutest baby clothes collection.

p.p.s. Miss you.(and your cute family)

Very, very nice Travis! We love all this documentation. Keep posting. Grandpa looks at your blog first thing when he comes home at night to see what' new.

Do you meant we both have to make two quilts? I thought it was working out fine with each grandma making one!

Allie said...

I see I am not the only one, but this video brought tears to my eyes. And then my cheeks. I think it was seeing your face right after you heard. Congratulations you beautiful mommy. (Also Travis is very talented!)

ritabobita said...

What a beautiful video. Travis has quite a bit of talent. I have to admit it, I teared up a little watching this. You're going to be fabulous parents. Congrats!

Becky this video is so tender and I am very excited for you and Travis!

You guys are too cute for words. Also I am available for babysitting. You're welcome. :)

I'm not pregnant and I know this post is older, but I must say thank you!! Thank you for sharing your wonderful journey with the world. Or maybe just friends and family and new friends.
I too, cried like a wee baby. I'm a softy for cute pregnant girls and cute babies! :)

I know this is random (and about 1 year too late) but I love love LOVE this video. I have some serious baby fever (we have been trying for a short while now to have a baby) and although I have seen this before, your reaction is priceless. It is a beautiful moment. Makes me cry every time.

Analilia said...

I just watched this. I'm not pregnant (like the ladies above were/are) but I too cried. It's such a sweet video.

Unknown said...

I just stumbled across this page as I was looking up pregnancy stuff and watched this video. This is the most beautiful moment I have seen. And yes, I'm pregnant, and yes I cried!! I'm so excited to find out what I'm having. This was awesome. Thank you for sharing!
