If you found out you were pregnant with multiples again... - Page 2

post #21 of 31
i think i would be thrilled, actually. my twins have been surprisingly easy although i don't think that kind of luck could come twice! personally, i find it a whole lot easier raising two of the same age rather than two of different ages... their needs are pretty similar, they're reaching milestones pretty close together... i'd go for another set.

the journey so far has been hard, but wonderful and fulfilling and magical and..oh I could go on and on! I would be SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO happy to have another set of twins or more. The bond, the dynamics of them. Just the whole package is amazing. I feel SO honoured that they chose me to be thier mom, and I would SO feel honoured to be a mom to multiples again.

Old thread I know but I just had to say that Iwould love it. I was jealous when a friend of mine just got to have twin boys I am happy for her too. When I had dd 3 I secretly hoped for twins again which surprised my mid wife when she found out.

I didn't see this thread the first time around. I have to say that I would be THRILLED to have another set of twins!! I loved being pregnant with two...giving birth to two...nursing two...having two babies...two toddlers....nursing two toddlers (yes, they are 2 1/2 and still nursing ). Wow! It's been such an amazing journey so far!

I would cry buckets. I love my girls, and I think having twins is amazing, but the logistics of it are crazy. Trying to feed two babies, comfort two babies, rock two babies, sleep with two babies, etc, etc, is just too much for me to go through again. It's great now that they are older, and I can watch their interactions in awe, but I don't want to go through the infant twin stage ever again.

Since my last post dh and I have started having "what if" conversations about whether or not we'd want to try for a 4th child. The thing we keep saying within 10 seconds of starting the conversation is BUT WHAT IF IT'S TWINS!

The day I lost my first set of twins I died. I thought that was a gift I had would never get again. I mourned my babies and the loss of the special status. I wanted to be the mom of twins it had been my dream for my whole childhood. Two years after I lost my twin boys I got pregnant again. I remember my dr. telling me I was pregnant, I laughed I didn't believe it. I was still having my periods and I just had a very bad flu, I knew it. My dr. sent me for an ultrasound to check how far along I was. I was sure she would just find a cyst, I told the tech that she had better not tell me there was twins. the tech turned and said how did you know? Again I laughed, then the screen was turned so I could see my 9 wk babies, baby a and baby b. It was truely the best day of life.

You're too close to it. I thought that too when it was so fresh, but now I love it. Give it some time and the stress of the infancy stage will fade and you will be left with mushy feelings when you look at baby pictures.

When I was out with my girls the first 1.5 yrs and someone would say, I always wanted twins, I was struck with an overwhelming urge to punch them. I still say, You don't know what you are talking about.

Holy Cow!! Wow what a ride for you!! How wonderful!!

And Nansala - Looks like you are either having your 2nd set anyday or have already had them!! Again !

Karen - 1plus2 - That is great you are still nursing your girls. I hope we can make it as long as you. Do they nurse often at that age? My 12 mos old girls nurse so much still it is hard to imagine them still nursing that often at age 2 or 2 1/2...but at the same time I can't imagine us NOT nursing.

On a side note - my sister just miscarried her baby. She was about 6 weeks along. I am very sad for her and wished so much that it didn't happen. It makes me appreciate even more how wonderful making a baby is and how precious 1 or 2 lifes can be. So if God gives me another singelton or another set of twins - either way I will be overjoyed!

I find myself wishing for twins for others. Not in the way like I want them to see how hard it is...but in the way like I want them to experience all the joys that I have.
