Twin Mamas, We Feel You

You know you are pregnant with twins when you’ll casually say things like “Twin A” and “Twin B”

Twin mamas, you’ve carried and grown two humans at the very same time which makes you more bad ass than most people we know. When you look back on your pregnancy (or maybe you’re in the middle of it) the following might sound vaguely familiar. 
You know you are pregnant with twins when:
  • You have at least one cathartic moment where someone stops you and your size prompts the “is there one or two in there?” question but you get to say “yes, there is two” and enjoy them feeling a little bit awkward. 
  • You have little sympathy for 99% of people who experience morning sickness because you are usually certain that it doesn’t half compare to how bad yours was (is).
  • Every second person asks you where the twin gene in your family comes from and sometimes you make the answer up (because many of you really don’t know).
  • People assume you’ll be having a Caesarian and you are kind of not OK about the assumption (regardless of your thoughts on a C-Section).
  • You’ll casually say things like “Twin A” and “Twin B”.
  • People you’ve never met before are quite forthcoming with questions about your conception.
  • You become obsessed with every celebrity or social media personality that has twins. Like actually obsessed. Beyonce is your soul sister. 
  • You said you wouldn’t but you’ve bought some of “those” twin outfits. First up is some “born together, friends forever” sleepsuits. You couldn’t un-see them.
  • You’ve never experienced fatigue like this in your whole life and have convinced yourself it’s natures way of preparing you for the lack of sleep to come. Twin pregnancy fatigue is REAL.
  • You totally appreciate the regular “how will you cope?” questions and the “you’ll be knackered” reminders.
