Id be scared I wouldnt be able to carry them to term. I have an incompetent cervix..so carrying one is a challenge enough!! 2 babies would even us back out though...instead of 9 Id be at 10 We dont have a history of twins on my side of the family (my husband does...but I believe its the womans side that matters)...and I do not take fertility meds, so Im doubtful I have twins.
I would DIE if I had multiples! Like, probably figuratively AND literally. I had preterm labor (I use that phrase lightly since all it was was painless BH's every 10 minutes that never let up, so they put me on bedrest even though my cervix never dilated past 1 cm in those 5 weeks!), and then ended up delivering DS at 36 weeks exactly the day before my bedrest was lifted! I would never be able to carry multiples to term, I think! So I would be terrified!
This baby has a lot on his or her plate: full term VBAC baby! I would never get that with multiples!!
I didn't even think of the medical complications.. I had pre-e with my DD and ended up having her at 33 weeks... I really don't think I could go through another NICU stay so maybe multiples wouldn't be a good thing!
Im lurking because July is slow and I miss you guys. Haha.
I'd be so pumped for twins!!!!!! Mainly because Kevin said ONE more is it. the end. then snip snip for him. And I really want... more than one more!! so a 2 for 1 would be awesome. Plus i reallllly want a girl.. and I want a boy.... so this would give me the chance of having one of each :):)
I cooked Brody just fine, no complications, boring boring everything... two weeks late he finally came out. Tried to induce a few days before but he wouldnt come out.. ugh!! sooO I think the twins would probably fit right inside my cozy womb.
I really want to have the next 2 really close together, kind of "to get it over with" but also so they'll have a sibling close in age, so 2 would be so nice.
A girl I know just had twin boys, and suprisingly its going really well for her... she was always so... "lazy".. without being rude... just complains constantly... and im really impressed with how shes handling it.
The sad, pathetic, part that I feel ashamed to admit, is im scared of the twins giving me stretchmarks and ruining my body for good. Im young, and I was always a little "big" I thought and never comfortable with my body until after I had DS and lost weight, and I didnt really get many with him, so I feel like this next child will rip my body apart for good and then I'll never feel good about myself... butttt I'd survive
I would not be thrilled w twins-- for many reasons. I'm used to easy, uncomplicated pregnancies and homebirths. Having twins would eliminate that option....
Also, I have IRL friends with twins and it is so so so hard. That first year is just a blur and to nurse them and care for them and four other littles. OY! It would push to the edge for sure.
I'd be happy with one healthy singleton, thankyouverymuch.
DH only wants one more kid. I don't want to stop at 2 kids total. So I'd be thrilled if I were pregnant with twins. I'd be nervous and it would be a lot of work. But then I'd get my 3 kids!
Now, triplets is another thing. If I had triplets we'd need to get a van or an SUV with 3rd row seating. I DO NOT want triplets or quads or anything like that. If an u/s showed quads I'd probably start hyperventilating and pass out!!! I don't see any way we could support 4 babies and a toddler. We live in a very small 2 bedroom house that's almost 100 years old. (And we own it - well the bank does lol, so we have to sell it before we can move, not easy in this market!)
We don't have many relatives that can help out. Both DH's parents are dead. My mom lives 45min away and is taking care of her mom and mom's brother so she has her hands full. And I don't speak to my father. I have one sister who lives a state away and is much younger than me. Oh and my husband is a trucker and is gone a lot! I'd pretty much be all on my own!!!
So I can handle twins. But any more than that and I'll panic!!!!
Thinking about multiples makes me nauseous. I'm too lazy for all that work. One (more) and done for me.
I jinxed myself...talking about how I didn't have m/s yet...yea well that's out the window and it has hit full force today. Ugh!! I couldn't eat lunch, everytime I would smell food it felt like it was coming up. Went to the health food store and bought ginger capsule's, got protein shakes, and small snacks.
How is everyone else feeling?
nothing happening here...everytime I dont get ms (which has been for 7 of my 8 kids that I have) I feel panicked for the ultrasound! I actually do not feel pregnant...that is always a little worrisome! Light headed/dizzy on occasion...but I have been like that from way before I was pregnant!!
Hey ladies.... sorry I have not been around much... we're on vacation, and I've been making sure to not spend too much time on the computer!
But I so need to vent! I'll be 7 weeks tomorrow, and still NO SIGN of morning sickness! By this point last pregnancy I was nauseous ALL DAY- although I never did puke, I seriously walked around feeling hung over all day every day for weeks. So yeah, I'm feeling worried that something isn't right- except that my nipples are SO SORE, I find myself discouraging my daughter from nursing. Mind you, she is also still teething her canines right now, she's biting, which SUCKS. Also, we're on vacation and have been at the mercy of local restaurants and stuff, and my stomach is a mess. I've been having stomach aches and loose stools the whole time we've been here. I'm interested to see if this stops once we get back home and I'm cooking for myself, or if it's a pregnancy symptom... anyone ever had that???
Also, my other vent... I can't wait for my maternity clothes to fit! I lost about 15lbs right before I got pregnant, and I live in Laos where I have no chance for shopping, so I have to wear what I have....so all my normal clothes are falling off in a really annoying way. So yeah, I just can't wait for my maternity clothes!
Oh, and, I don't like the thought of multiples because I want AT LEAST this pregnancy and another- I'd love to have a family of 4-5 kids, but DH would be happy to stop at 2. We'll have 3, I'm pretty sure, but, I don't know how much of a chance I have to convince him for 4. So, a multiple pregnancy would make me sad because I would lose being able to experience another pregnancy- which I LOVE.
I'm nauseated and I feel depressed. I never feel depressed. I hate hormones. They suck.
I'd eat some :icecream: to make me feel better if I didn't think it would make me puke. lol
Oh my god, talk about hormones. I'm soooooooooooo hormonal. Evil, catty b*tch mommy and wife. It's not pretty. I'm sorry you're depressed and can't eat ice cream
Gosh our board is kind of dead. I'm glad there are more BFP's rolling in but we're getting into July BFP's now so hopefully some more June mama's will find us soon.
Right now I've got a burning under my ribs.. reminds me of my gallbladder pain. I had that out in March (thank god!) and occasionally get phantom pain under there. It's not really bad or anything, just uncomfortable. I remember with my 1st pregnancy I was in so much pain and no one could ever tell me what was wrong. I went to L&D twice with the crazy pain and no one could ever help me. It sucked!
Sooooooooo yeah... any plans for the week?
