Twin pregnancy funnies! - Page 2

post #21 of 39
at the clinic I went to they would have a sudent come in first eery time.. so if it was one I hadn't met (usually) I would act all shocked when they started going over my chart and mentioned that it was twins.

lol

or I would act like I was there to verify the pregnancy at like 20+ weeks

I was such a loser

I had pubic symphisis pain so badly that it took me several minutes to get out of bed. I had to roll out of bed onto my birthing ball, bounce a few seconds and then stand up.

I got so big that I could barely fit behind the steering wheel of my car. I had to keep the seat scooted forward so my legs could reach, but I had to recline the seat so my belly would fit. My friend said I looked like a gansta driving around with my seat reclined so far I could barely reach the steering wheel.
Stories like these make me want to have my camera ready at all times because I won't want to forget how crazy it was!

I have a post partum story...

My husband works on a TV show and one of the characters is pg with twins. As a favor to the show I sent them all my pg pics... we took an exposed belly profile pic every week or so throughout the pregnancy. My husband handed over the photos to some folks having a meeting in the next room dicussing wardrobe, etc and then went back to work. He just kept hearing them say over, and over "Holy sh*t" as they progressed through the photos.

I can't imagine the actress is too thrilled about being so huge, even though she is still smaller than she would be in real life!

I once knocked a toddler over with my huge belly in the checkout line.
I really didn't see him standing in front of me the whole time and so I knocked the poor kid down when I moved forward a little more.
I felt really bad and instead of crying he just looked at me and my belly in shock.

Another story was when I rode my bike to drop a letter in the mailbox down the street.
It was very stupid and careless of me to get on a bike, I know, but somehow at that time it felt easier than walking. Well, I learned my lesson, because the seat broke off in the middle of the street. Very embarrassing!

Public restroom stalls were also always a challenge. I was afraid to get stuck inside sometimes.

Wonderful!

I just hoping to revive this thread - any twin mamas baking their babes can surely use the laugh.

These are sooo great!! Wonderful for a chuckle. I am not so big as I am carrying mostly inside, but I still can't believe how huge I am getting!

I remember one day a few weeks ago in the shower looking down and realizing that I couldn't see my feet! That was a shock to me.

Last night I tried doing dishes, but I couldn't because my belly wouldn't allow me to get close enough to the sink to rinse the dishes under the tap.

When I walk down the hall of our apartment, my darling dh, (when sensing I am ok with the humour) quacks like a duck because I waddle - hey, it's the most comfortable way to get around!!

I did actually BREAK A CHAIR during my twin pregnancy. I sat down in one of those cheap plastic chairs when I was at some kind of church function and CRACK -- I was on the floor. Again, wanted to die from embarrassment.

I still say nothing beats my stool softener on the nipples situation! :

You know, these aren't so funny when you're going through it :P. Getting in and out of bed is insane and i'm also carrying small.

About the only thing I can think of as funny is midriff. For the first time in my life, my tummy sticks out of my clothes! I'm wearing 2-3x and it doesn't matter, I still have either my tummy or a tummy panel showing, and personally I don't care LOL!

Oh and my DS has the bad habit of pulling my shirt ALL THE WAY UP so he can poke the babies (IE stick his finger as far into my belly button as he can). I have to be on guard or people get a real show.

I am having boy/girl twins and I have been asked a few time if they are identical or will look just a like (HELLO DUH) I don't know how they can look just a like.

Also I don't even know how people can check there self for dialation and all that because I am at the point of wiping my self after I go pee with my finger tips to reach with the TP or I have to try and reach under a leg.

I also ride the scooters at the store and it's funny because I make one of my big kids ride it back to the store after we load every thing in the truck. They fight each other because no one wants to do it they feal embarresed.
I have also crashed into stuff a few times with that thing b/c of trying to manuver around people that don't want to move for you. Broke open a box of Borox that fell off the shelf.

My boy/girl twins look nothing alike. For example one has blonde hair and blue eyes and the other has brown hair and brown eyes yet they still ask if they are identical! UMMMMM HELLLOOOOOO!!!!!

She didn't say a work the next week when I told her he was head down again!!

I am going to be laughing about you ladies ALL DAY!!
: One of my guys flipped at 32 weeks, and he was HUGE!

That is seriously one of the funniest things I have ever read. I think my girls were just drifting to sleep and I distrubed them from laughing out loud! I will be giggling for days thinking of you knocking over a toddler with your belly.

I am in for twice weekly NST's and I take my 3yr old dd with me sometimes. After already going potty two times while waiting, she decided that she needed to go while I was hooked up to the mon. As she has only been potty trained for a few months I didn't want to tell her no and the bathroom was close I told her to go. While she was walking I hear her saying she was going to pee in a cup. For some reason she thinks it is great fun that mom get's to do that. Soon the lab tech caught her, she was hiked up on the potty, cup in hand ready to go.

I am literally laughing here to the point of tears!!

Here's one of mine. I was at my brother's house for the holidays and my daughter dropped one of her toys on the floor. I squatted down to pick it up and when I started to stand up, pee just started running down my leg, right there on his living room carpet in front of everyone.

I couldn't drive any more when I got about 32 weeks along because we have a Subaru with a manual transmission. When I'd push the seat back far enough to fit my belly, my leg couldn't reach to push the clutch in enough to drive.

When we moved into our current house, I was 37 weeks pg with my twins. I took my dd for a walk the morning after we moved in and almost every single neighbor was out there saying, "wow, we're amazed you can walk."

I remember similar situations

The booths, public bathrooms, the "gangsta" look while driving, etc.

I'm only 5' 2", so when I was pregnant with my twin boys, there was very little room for carrying them. I went from a 28" to a 56" waist, and I'm only 62 inches tall. Not to mention they were both transverse (side lying), so from the front, I looked like a gigantic football.

I was due in February, so to appeal a bit more to dh, I decided to paint my belly (body paints) to resemble a football. He had a Super Bowl party with all his friends, which I attended as the human football.

We had a little tikes football-shaped toy box set up as an ice chest in the living room, and the guys would jokingly reach for my belly to get their beer.

My middle son would seek shelter from the rain by standing under my belly at the bus stop.

At 5 months, I looked 9 months so for months on end people thought I was due any minute. We lived in a very small town way out in the middle of nowhere. People would ask when I was due, and their jaws would drop in shock when I said I had a few more months to go.

I became very tired, very quickly of people asking if I was over due, so I would just reply, "Yah, the experimental drugs are working well. If I keep taking them, I can carry the baby until it's out of diapers."

But the absolute funniest thing happened to me at the grocery store, shortly after they were born (they were about 4 weeks old).

DH was on deployment, and so grocery shopping meant taking a ride on the "baby" train. I'd snap each of their carseats into the seat part of a cart, push one in front of me, and the other behind, as I was making my way through the store.

Now keep in mind we're still living in Small Town USA. One could clearly see (or at least I thought) that the twins were twins at 4 weeks old. I was approached by a spunky elderly woman, decked out in her Sunday Church attire. She came up to each of the twins, and was OOOOOOing and AWWWING over them. She then turned to me and said, "Giiiiirrrrrlll . . . you must have had pregnancies BACK-TO-BACK!" She then looked down at my belly and asked, "So when is THIS one due?" OMG

Well I officially cannot cover my belly. It is SO big that even though i'm wearing maternity sizes 2 size bigger, I still show muffin-top. My chiropractor commented on my innie and found it amazing that It didn't pop out with the size I am!

I walked into a door nob by turning too fast. Now my belly button is all bruised. I keep telling people that it's because my husband is blond (which he is... he's not appreciative ).

Driving is almost impossible.

I keep finding dry patches of skin. Found one on the top of my foot. It wasn't skin... I dripped colostrum on my foot and it dried there.
