Mine is not a planned pregnancy. In fact, I had come to think that, much as I loved the thought of having a child of my own, this was not to be for me. I'm a teacher, and hanging out with other people's kids fed my baby hunger some - it's also quite a powerful contraceptive, as I know for sure that children are not all sweetness and light all the time! They can be noisy, frustrating and grey hair-inducing... but they are also awe-inspiring and joyous and honest.

Here Goes Nothing!

My husband and I have been married for almost a year and a half. We've decided that it's time to bring a baby into our family! We have a wonderful 4 1/2 year old yellow lab, but we've been feeling like something's missing. (How cliche does that sound?) I went to the OB for my yearly check-up a few weeks ago and got the 'ok' to go off the pill. I have two weeks left of my pack and I'm starting to get NERVOUS! A zillion thoughts have been running through my head, "Are we too young? Are we being stupid? What if something goes wrong? What if we can't get pregnant? Is our apartment too small?

hollly crap, i just found out this week that im having TWINS.
im soo soo soo happy.
when i first found out i was pregnant, i couldn't believe it and it didnt really feel real to think of having a baby but now that i know im having twins it feels right!!!

growing up, from the time i was 4 until i was in like 6th grade, my bestfriends were twins.
twins run in my family and growing up i always told my friends i was going to have twins because i had wide set hips so i was destined to carry twins blah blah blah
