When people see me now they don't see my face- they see belly- and then the questions I know they are about to ask come. "Are you about to pop? Wow!" I have gotten over telling people I am having twins, it gets repetitive in response. But, if they ask what I am having I feel obligated to answer-a boy and a girl. Then they know I am having two and the conversation begins. Are they fraternal, or identical. (seeing that they are boy and girl how could they possibly be identical I want to tell people) What am I naming them, how far along am I. What they went through in their pregnancies. Don't get me wrong I enjoy the acknowledgement but when I am in a hurry or feeling like crap its not really a conversation I feel like having. But I know this is a gift. I love it when people tell me "oh I want to have twins." or "I'm going to have twins when I get pregnant." Like they have the choice. I want to say do you realize the toll it will have on your body? While totally worth it don't you know what you are trying to get yourself into?:)I love it when people say "oh you're not that big for having twins!" I just want to scream at them and say well I feel big...huge...like a semi truck or like big bird...but all I do is smile and say thanks... The best part of those conversations is always the point when I tell them I have a 2 and 4 year old at home...you should hear those responses. From good luck to you're sure busy, to you have your hands full...the look on peoples faces are priceless. Now that I am home on bed rest I don't really deal with that anymore-except at Dr. appts and on rare occasions when I do get out of the house. This has definitely been a ride!!!
