pregnant with twins

Bre - posted on 09/18/2011 ( 3 moms have responded )




Im currently 20 wks pregnant with twins. I also have a 3 1/2 year old girl. Im only 23 and conceived twins naturally.

Im wondering if anyone else felt uncomfortable with ppls responces?

Whenever anyone askes what Im having, I say 2 girls... they say things like... you are going to need a lot of help. My husbands aunt even asked me, how are you going to handle two at once?

I dont know if ppl think I cant do this, but the remarks are getting old and I dont really know how to respond.

I know it might be a lot to handle when they are born, but I do stay at home anyway, so I think it will be manageable.

It just gets frusterating when I tell ppl, and they say how are you going to deal with two? You're going to be overwhelmed, hope you have your mother close by (which I dont) aahh lol

Anyone have any advice on what to say when I get these responces? I wish they would just say congrats and keep their mouths shut haha

its happened too many times, so Im annoyed! lol sry so post was so long.

thanks for reading!

I have a 4 year old, a 2 year old, and 4 month old twin girls. Believe me everyday I go out all I here is you sure have your hands full. It gets annoying. But people dont understand what is like they never had to experience twins before. Yes its hard at times and overwhelming but totally worth it. And you can do it. If you get annoyed with them now, just wait until the babies come. I tell my husband it is like a circus to even go anywhere because EVERYONE wants to see them and ask questions about them. Its not bad just you know what to expect. Good Luck!

Yep, and you are going to hear the whole "you are going to need a lot of help" "you won't be able to do it all yourself" "you can't handle 2 babies at the same time" A LOT.

I have fraternal girls, 4.5 month old. You get use to really fast when you have to deal with 2 babies...
Just nod your head and say "aha", "hummm" "maybe you are right" and 3 seconds later pretend that conversation never happened.

Just remember its the normal response for a lot of people when they hear someone is having twins, they think about how challenging it will be, don't take it personally. Just so you know though I will admit my girls were a lot of work the first year or so but now they are 14 months and I think are a lot easier then those with singeltons because they play together for a lot of the day. Just remember that you can do it, and it is so amazing to watch the two of them hug, kiss, and share with each other. Just wait until they are born and they become little super stars where ever you take them, its like having paparazzi follow you:)
