While scouring the internet about twin pregnancy I’ve run into quite a few things that have made my eyes roll, I thought I’d share these with you.
1. Mom Groups
I’ve come across two twin mom groups that required pictures of said twins to be sent to moderators in order to be allowed. And no, you can’t send a picture of each I individually you must send them together. They call this “vetting”. HA! I’m sorry, but this is probably one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever heard of. I do not need to send you pictures of my children to get involved in a mom group.
2. Exhaustion Is Real
I laughed in my prior pregnancies at the women who were “too tired” to function. I retract my laughter. I now eye roll at all the pregnant mothers who can function. Don’t worry, we can all suffer together.
3. Pregnancy Dreams Are Vivid
Last night I had a crazy dream about my cousin who coincidentally is also pregnant with twins. This ones for you Alex! She was ready to pop, and I was complaining. Sure enough she popped like a balloon in my dream. Suddenly the blast of the popping balloon sent me flailing over the edge of a cliff. In real life, the cliff I was hanging on to was Zoram’s face and neck. He’s lucky I didn’t smack him. Can I go back to sleeping please?
4. There Are TONS Of Problems That Could Occur
I mean tons. Like, preterm labor, gestational diabetes, TTS, cord entanglement, c-sections snd so, so much more. Looking these up in your first trimester is probably not the best idea as you can try to back pedal but obviously it’s not going to work.
5. People Always Have An Opinion
Literally, every single person has an opinion of you and your pregnancy. Good, bad, indifferent every person has one! I’ve come across the you’re crazy, and I’ve even got the you’re dumb. But, there are a select few who are out here rooting for me and I’m willing to keep on keeping on for that reason alone. Because I have support. If you don’t have support, I’ll be your support. Just reach out!
