Thanks for the smile.

I LOVE spam musubi!! Not too many people can appreciate a good piece of spam sandwiched between rice and wrapped with nori. Yum!! Yay! I'm glad you can relate.

Hey Gamitzer/Meredith! Our EDD is close to yours: 11/1/07. We're expecting twins! Like you, we also met in 2000, but married in 2003. This is our first pregnancy. After a long time trying, we did IVF- using her eggs, but with me carrying- which is very cool. Anyway, happy to find folks who are as far along as we are. Hope you're feeling great. -Ann

Hey Ann,
That's great news and lucky you, having twins! I'm a twin myself, so I love knowing about other twins. After getting my wife's blood tests back, we had a few moments when we questioned the possibility of twins, but realized it was really, really unlikely. Though, we thought it would be hilarious to tell people that I was part of the reason she had twins. But alas, just one in there! And, actually, me and my sis are identical, which isn't genetic, or as our RE told me "you're freaks of nature!"
Well, this is very cool, having someone else on the board who is gay and due around the same time. Make sure you keep us posted on your progress!

My dw is a twin, and I gave birth to our 4-year-old twins (who are genetically unrelated to dw). You would be *amazed* by how many people conclude that we had twins due to Lena's being a twin. Then when we point out (if we feel so obliged) that Lena actually had no genetic influence on the creation of Luke and Jaz, people ask if the donor has twins in his family! People are so clueless about how twins happen! The funny thing is that 8 of our boys' half-siblings are also twins (just out of the 19 half-sibs that we've found so far), but, like Luke and Jaz, they're all the result of IVF or fertility-enhancing drugs (L and J are clomid twins).

Congrats on all the new pregnancies!!

I can only imagine! When we told my MIL we thought there might be a possibility of twins, her first thought was that I had something to do with it. So, yeah, just about anyone can be confused.

Oh, and Ann/Lex, one thing your twins will have to get used to: being asked if they have the same birthday. That happened far more often than you'd think.

Super excited!

We saw the twins moving on ultrasound today!! They've got hands and feet and were waving them all around. Very cute! Totally AMAZING!!!! We're so happy they're both still there and thriving. Happy day!

How exiciting, Ann! I'm glad to know everything is going well. I don't think we'll have another peek at our babe until the midway point. Are you planning on finding out the sexes? I'm on the fence about it, but my wife really wants to know.
