Just wanted to check in with all the twin mommies and a big welcome to all the new ones!
I too get the "does it run in your family?" question all the time. Before we told anyone me and DH decided to just say yes. And technically, my Grandma's Grandma had two sets, though neither set made it to live birth, I'm still counting it. I actually had the lady at Motherhood Maternity say, "does it run in your family or is it uhhh you know" and made some weird hand motion. She's lucky she caught me on a good day, but how tactless for someone especially where she works. My current annoyance is when people, mostly mothers of singletons say "oh, wow you are going to have your hands full, I dont know how your going to do it!" Makes me feel like they are doubting my ability or something! As if no one has ever survived having multiple children?! I'm going to take a pic of me tandem nursing with a big smile on my face and send it to them! haha
Mommieof2- Where at in CA are you? I'm about 1.5 hours north of Sac and I too am dreading the hot hot summer! I figure I will have my babies right about the time it starts getting hot and then stay inside under the air conditioning until October! lol
AFM- At my last OB appt. I was hoping to find out the genders but my OB said that it was too early. Though I knew this was BS, I just decided to be agreeable and wait a month. I guess once I find out it will be more accurate...though I'm not soo secretely bummed that he wouldn't look
My parents are coming over this weekend to paint the nursery for me and even though I dont know the genders I have had a neutral color nursery planned out in my head for the last year, so it works
Other than that, had my h1n1 shot today and second trimester bloodwork. All these needles are much easier after being an IVF pincushion for months and months.
Hope everyone is having happy and healthy pregnancies! I look forward to sharing this journey with you alll
