Anyone dream of twins before getting pregnant? - Page 2

post #21 of 46

Haha. Glad I'm entertaining you. LOL! Sorry to disappoint but I don't think I'll be testing today J knows what's going on so if I were to test and it did come out positive he would be disappointed that I didn't wait for him. And I don't think I could test, get a positive, not tell him and fake taking another test with him around. LOL!

I am thinking/hoping it was just travel throwing me off. Then again, it was the travel that threw off the darn scheduling of the bc pills (wasn't taking them at the same time and missed at least one that I had to take the next day).

And yeah.... Disney would be out for a few years if I even had one, let alone two!

Well, you might be ok if the indiscretions happened during your travel time. You want a 10-14 day window between ovulation and when AF should come in order for the baby to be conceived and implanted, so unless you happened to get really really lucky and ovulated right on the first day of your travel and you also messed up on your BC and you dtd that day, you are probably ok. : If you were good up until then, you are probably safe.

But then again, meet Amelia. My 17 month old that was conceived while we were avoiding with natural family planning and by all of the charts and textbooks, she should NOT have been conceived. So clearly if a little one is supposed to come, they come. :

BWAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHA. She'd totally ask you why you're peeing on stuff too. Then she'd ask to do it too. She likes peeing on random things... :

It wasn't only during that time

LOL, well then...uh, I'll save some of our baby stuff for you that we were planning on selling at a yard sale. But that means you better test before the weekend. :

Oh, and how do twins work with that weird uterus thing you have? Don't you have a split one or something? Does each baby get it's own "apartment"? I thought you couldn't have any more kids?

This is like a soap opera. You better convince Jason to make a late night CVS run. Dave had to do that the day I found out I was pregnant with Ryland. He learned they lock the pregnancy tests up after dark and you have to call someone over to get you one. :

Dude... I'll be lucky if I make it to tomorrow without testing! I have no will power. None. The only reason I haven't run out yet and bought one is because I wouldn't want Jason to get upset for testing without him. But he'll be home in about 3-4 hours

I have so much work to do for school and no motivation to do it. I have to make a presentation for tomorrow and have totally been putting it off. Grrrr. Must.... gather... some.... energy....

You can run out and get one now, and then wait to test until he gets home. Or you can chalk it up to "I need to do school work and I won't be able to concentrate until I do this test" and then text him the picture of the plus sign. :

I don't know for the first part. Yes, I have a "double uterus".... but apparently it didn't stop Owen from being here I haven't seen a doctor in years (other than a quickie at the health department to get bc pills once a year) so I don't know any more details than I was told a pregnancy would have more complication risks (higher risk of miscarriage, higher risk of preterm labor and higher risk of stillbirth). Part of the reason why we would consider one more baby but probably not anymore after that. But all through my pregnancy with Owen (and 3 u/s) they never noticed anything different with my uterus. Only when I had that IUD in and was trying to get it out (and needed an u/s because the IUD was "lost") did they see anything different. Again, they didn't go into too many details though, just a "oh, this is why we couldn't find the IUD... because it was over on HERE, where we totally didn't expect it". When I went back to the dr they said their brief blurb on it but, honestly, I wasn't thinking about getting pregnant at the time so didn't even think to ask for more details.

And Jason plans on going to the gym tonight at 9. Which is right next to Kroger. Convenient, huh?? LOL!

Yeah.... maybe I'll run out and get one but wait to test until he gets home. Don't want to wait until after 9 tonight! LOL! Dang it... I really am not going to get any work done!

Just have him come home before the gym. Then after the test, he will probably have the longest run he's ever had on the treadmill while he's trying to process it. :
post #33 of 46
I'm not going to get any work done until you test either. And we have martial arts from 6-9, so it's not like I can stalk then. So do it now. : Then we can both get back to work (except if it's positive, you STILL won't be getting any work done. LOL!)

I'll be checking my phone for a text every 10 minutes during class to find out if it's positive. LOL!

Oh, he'll be home before then. But our evenings are always so busy. He'll come home, we'll eat dinner, I'll leave to go to the library (to do some quizzes that need to be done before 11 tonight), I'll get home, he'll leave for the gym while I put Owen to bed.

But I'm sure we can squeeze in 5 minutes to POAS

But you will be sworn to secrecy. LOL!

ETA- okay, running to the store now.... but not testing until he comes home! $10 says I get AF as soon as I get home from the store
post #36 of 46
LOL, well, hopefully it comes while you're standing in the aisle so that you don't have to buy the test. :

Hey, I knew you were pregnant with Owen for a while before anyone else knew. :

I am now the (not so proud... lol) owner of 2 sticks to pee on (why oh why are they not sold individually? There were only 2 and 3 packs). And AF didn't show after I bought them so.... that didn't work Now the countdown to when J gets home (and I'll be guzzling water so I actually have to pee).

Of course I had to answer a billion questions from Owen about what I was buying ("a test") and why ("because sometimes mommy's need to take tests") and whether I was going to get a good grade on the test ("I sure hope so!") and if he can watch me take the test ("no buddy, mama needs to be alone for this one").

No chugging...won't that dilute your pee and make it so that the test isn't accurate?

I'm surprised he can't read the box. :

And they're not sold individually because noone takes just one...

No chugging? Really? I didn't know that. Doh!
post #40 of 46
I don't know...it makes sense because you don't drink water at night and when you wake up, your FMU is diluted and the test works. : I mean, it could be accurate at night, but seeing as how you're only like 12 hours late, you want to stack the odds in your favor. :
