Twin mommies, I'm so impressed!

I have had a very, very easy pregnancy thus far. No sickness, fatigue, frequent trips to the bathroom or any of the other fun stuff one usually endures prior to meeting one's little bundle of joy.

But here I am at 35 weeks. I'm starting to have trouble sleeping. Waking up 3 or 4 times a night to pee. I am having a hard time breathing and can get out-of-breath just sitting on the couch. I have heartburn. And baby's kicks can really hurt.

All this led me to a thought the other day...

Boy, I don't know how those pregnant with twins do it! I am in absolute awe of all my twin mommy blogger friends. Now, don't get me wrong, I think every woman deserves a medal for enduring 9 months of pregnancy fun. But, twin mommies definitely deserve 3!

As many of you know, we had two embryos transferred but only baby Emma decided to stick around. I just can't imagine doing this with two babies in there. But I'm guessing, when all my twin mommy friends are holding their TWO bundles of joy, they will forget the doubly swollen ankles and doubly aching belly. At least I hope so.

Just wanted to give a little shout out! You all are amazing.


  1. we had twins at first, but we are very happy with our singleton. i can't imagine what those last couple months would have been like with twins, it was pretty hard with just the one!

  2. Aww! Thanks! I needed that today! You are right...not easy but sure worth it! :)

    35 weeks!?! Awesome! Little Miss Emma will be here before you know it!

  3. Thanks from me as well- if you read my post today, you'll know I needed that today too!

    Nearing the end isn't easy for anyone, but I am so happy that Emma is sticking around in there! The next couple of weeks will really fly by for you!

  4. You are too kind! :o) Hang in there...we are all getting so close!!! It may actually hurt you more when Emma kicks only because she has a little more room to maneuver. Our kids are so squished they can barely move! :o)

  5. Thanks! I wouldn't say that I've forgotten about the physical pregnancy issues since my body is still paying the price for the months of bedrest, but it was all absolutely worth it.

  6. Thank you... that is so sweet of you! Besides the months of bedrest accompanied by emotional and physical ups and downs, I am curious to see how I transition back to real life with the added responsibilities!

    Though I have never heard back from you, I want to wish you the best... you are almost there!
