Gabsma03 & onlyn2urmoney, you guys are scaring me!!

Both of you are pregnant with #3 and both of you have had surprise twins! I go in for my u/s tomorrow and I'm freaking out (because you know these things come in threes, lol!)

Hahahaha I know this is crazy. Its still so shocking to me never in my life did I expect to have twins. Esp since no one in either family has had twins. I have a feeling a one more Momma's here are gonna find out they are having twins. The year I had ds it was the year of boys I swear everyone had a boy. This year I guess is the year of the twins lol? I can't wait to hear about your u/s tomorrow Smile

My mom was a twin and that is always her FIRST question when she finds out I'm pregnant. So feeling slightly nervous, lol!

Dont mean to scare you, but I would be scared LOL. Im terrified! I still hard to accept. I wasnt even fully ready for #3 but I guess I got 2 for the price of 1. Keep us updated on your appointment! Everything ive been reading on twins says that if it runs in the family on the mother side matters so you might have a chance if your mother was a twin!

I would be happy with twins, but I'd be perfectly happy to not have twins. If we had twins, our 8-seat minivan would be obsolete, and we're planning on using it as long as we can. As it is, our 7-seat station wagon will be outdated as soon as this baby is born.

On extreme couponing today, the lady said her biggest savings was twins- two for the price of one. hahah, made me think of you guys!!

I guess thats why I want them so bad- I want 3 kids sooo badly and Kev is dead set on getting the snip snip after this one- Sooo I dream of having a b/g set of twins in there so I can be OK with being done.

But the reality of stretched out squishy ruined body forever and 2x the work=eeep!! heheh

I am with you on the scared part...... My 8 year old is gonna have to move to the basement room. Luckily we have a minivan. I have my mom as my childcare while I work , There is no way she can watch all 4 so basically I am gonna have to quit my job or go to working several more nights a week. And if I quit I lose my free healthcare. Its all very overwelming at the point. Than I worry about pre term labor and the all the high risk things than happen with multiplies .... ahhh I need to just go to bed I could go on all night. I think I am still in shock at this point !!!

Twins is dh's biggest fear every time I get pg tho they dont run in our family either. I really dont know why he is so frightened but every time I go for the first u/s he says "phew there's just one!". I would not choose twins now that I have so many kids though but if it happened it happened and I would deal. It would be a harder pg and tougher with two newborns but so many twins are born nowadays it is totally doable! I do think twins are just soo darling though especially identical ones I just want to squeeze them when I see them!

Kevins hugest fear is twins as well- which is odd because he's a twin. Guess he knows how much he put his parents through hahah

My husband said he went into the appointment excited to see our baby and left terrified finding out there was twins LOL. I think im still in denial. Plus there is so much im scared of. Im so petite I dont know how my body is going to handle carrying twins. Im scared of a csection. More than likely I will go into preterm labor again and I cant even handle the thought of having my babies in the NICU again. Ive had really hard times with my LO's and breastfeeding, I cant even imagine what it will be like with twins. And I feel bad for my LO's. They have no idea what their in for and im scared how their going to handle 2 newborn babies.
Sorry for the vent. I feels good to get it out though LOL.
