I just need to vent about some of the comments I'm getting since I'm expecting twin boys. I have gotten comments such as, "I feel sorry for you," "2 boys--that's trouble," "you'll never be able to breastfeed 2," "you'll never get to sleep again," etc.
I just want to say that I am really excited about having twins! My dad is a twin and this pregnancy has really allowed me to bond in a unique way with my grandmother, who has tons of grandkids & great-grandkids but no twins since my dad & his brother, her first children. She of course has not made any comments about breastfeeding 2--don't think there was an alternative in her day! But I am always surprised/hurt by the insensitive comments. I know people don't mean to be mean, but it's not very encouraging to hear things like "I feel sorry for you" or "that's trouble."
Twin pregnancy is hard. This is my first pregnancy as well. I am still getting occasional morning sickness at 20 weeks and yes, I am gaining more weight than in a typical pregnancy, which is also nobody's business! I just can't figure out why people can't stick to, "That's great!" "Wow, twice the love!" or "I hope you have very healthy baby boys!" That is all.
