What have you loved about being pregnant? feeling the baby move, and listening to dd's stories about everything she is going to do with the baby-she slept with her head on my abdomen the other night, and the baby moved his head next to hers-so cute! Glad I was awake for it!
What have you not loved so much about being pregnant? exhaustion in first trimester, FOGGY brain (I chose to take a job cross country-which was our plan, though dh supported me in choosing to continue with the plan once I was pregnant, we moved here in September, that I am now REALLY regretting since family is on the west coast, dh left his job-and hasn't found one yet-so I am the primary breadwinner right now-yikes! If I had a clearer brain I would have been able to analyze the situation and probably would have delayed moving till after the baby was born so I could take an adequate maternity leave and have more family help)

When is your estimated due date? March 28, but the girls are likely to be born in February (I hope!) due to being monoamniotic (probably)
Is this your first pregnancy? no
If not, how many kids do you have and are they boys or girls and what ages? I have a 3 1/2 year old girl and an almost-two year old boy.
Do you know or will you find out the sex of your baby? Yes, two girls!
Are you birthing at a hospital, birthing center or at home? Hospital, and I know that it'll be a different experience this time since I'm having twins, but I had both of my other babies at this place and their nurses are across-the-board AMAZING. (And you know that the nurses are with you a lot more than the doctors!)
What have you loved about being pregnant? I love feeling the babies move, and I love the wonder I feel when I think that I have two PEOPLE inside me. I mean, how weird and wonderful is that, having an extra soul or two temporarily residing inside your body?
What have you not loved so much about being pregnant? All the potential complications that come from the girls sharing an amniotic sac, and the thought of being hospitalized away from my two older children for so long. (Monoamniotic twins only have about a 40% survival rate without constant monitoring after 28 weeks, but the monitoring pushes the survival rate up over 90%, so . . . much as I hate the idea, it's worth it to get them here alive.)
