Add me to the list of twinfeeling-ers. I've had twin feelings waaay before conception and I O'd on both sides so the chances are elevated. Yesterday morning dh woke up and said, "I love you and our babies." He had a a dream we had blonde, curly headed twin girls. The weird thing was that I, too had my first preggo dream...and I had twin girls, too. Dh and I both agreed that the universe was trying to tell us something.

Even though I won't, the prospect of two babes in there makes me antsy for an early u/s.

Oh I know. Now I am wanting to get an early one but we couldnt afford it anyway, as our insurance only covers one unless it is high risk pregnancy...

I'm thinking girl...but maybe that's b/c I want my dd to have a sister so badly. That Chinese thing was wrong about my first, and it says boy for me again. So maybe it's opposite for me? I had very strong girl feelings with my dd from the day I found out I was pg, and I was right about her, so we'll see...

I really don't know. I'm going to wait until I start dreaming and really "feel" pregnant.

After my dream last night, I'd have to say a boy. I dreamt that I was looking for my son. I have seven kids (4 girls and 3 boys) and I kept asking each one where is your brother? When I finally saw him, at a distance, he was about 13/14yrs old, had brown, wavy hair. Crazy huh? what's even stranger, is I had two dreams last summer that I was nursing a baby boy.

As for breaking out, my last two pg (girls), my face was a mess. this time around, i broke out during my 2WW. Since then my face cleared up and looks soooooooooo wonderful!

OMG. My skin is a distaster. I'm so embarassed by it right now. I've had it under control for about 10 years now and it really helped my self-esteem and helped me come out socially. Now that it's worse than it was when it was bad before, I just feel icky all the time. It makes me not want to be around people without makeup on, like when I teach an aerobics class. And my sex drive is crazy high right now but I feel so unattractive that we've only has sex once in over 2 weeks. Ugh.

Tara, my skin is looking crappy too. Don't worry, you are still beautiful, even though I know it's hard to think that way right now! I feel like every day a new one starts brewing or pops up - and not being able to use my salicylic acid is KILLING ME! My skin was under control while I was on the pill. I didn't even realize it at the time. One or two cycles go by off it, and BOOM - back to how I was in high school and early college. It's so unnerving!

It's honestly affecting my career goals. Here I am, supposedly a skin care specialist, going to help people with problem skin, and I'm all broken out? What does that say about me? Would you want me to do your facial?

Anyway, back on topic, I still really want a girl. I feel like it could be either at this point though, I have absolutely no strong tugs in either direction. Chris would be so HAPPY with a girl, and my MIL would be ecstatic (she would be the first girl EVER born in the family). Plus, all my life I saw myself with daughters. I don't know what to believe or do - would life really give me a boy when all I've dreamed of are girls? Is that what is supposed to happen? Hmm, I really don't know, just have to wait and see.
