Is it weird that twins both terrify me and excite me all at once? After going through all the meds and treatments that we have been through I find myself desperately praying for twins. Justin and I are both only children which makes our family very small. We will never be an aunt/uncle and our kids (if we are lucky enough to have any) will never have any aunts/uncles or cousins. I HATED being an only child and have always said that I would never do that to my kids. Justin really wants a son and I really want him to have one for all the hockey and other things he wants to share with a son. I really want a little girl... a girl whose hair I can put up in little bows and take to ballet and have "girl time" with. I dont what either of us to have to settle with less than we dream of.
At this point I would just be happy to have a baby, not matter what gender! I am worried that if we get pregnant that it may never happen again.... so I want twins. I want to know that I have 2 kids whether or not I can get pregnant again.
At the same time I how much more "high-risk" twin pregnancies and how harder it is to have more than one baby at a time to take care of but no matter how much I think of all the down sides I still desperately want twins..... a boy and a girl.
Am I crazy?


  1. Not at all!!!!!!! I think twins would be great. I remember saying something about that to you one time and you were like "HECK NO!" But it's fun for my life that you want twins now. Maybe I can borrow one for a little while until I have my own kids? ;) Do you realize how spoiled your child(ren) will be? As I was driving to work today, I was thinking about what I would buy for a baby shower gift...I'm really hoping this works out for you guys! I<3U!

  2. I hear ya! I'm an only child too - and always hated it! I've always wanted at least 2 - so as to not have an only child. I wouldn't want to do that to my kid either!
