Not Thrilled About Twins

KK - March 2

i am 9 weeks, found out a couple days ago we are having twins. I am 36 and have a 16 year it's been a long time since the last pregnancy. Is it normal to not be excited about multiples, knowing how much work/lack of sleep/huge change it is going to be?

if it makes you feel any better, my aunt had twins(also 2 singletons) and she said that the twins were the easiest for her because they entertained eachother all the time...good luck!!

I will find out on the 14th (hopefully) if I am having twins - I an NOT looking foward to it. I have a 6 1/2, and 2 year old. Taking care of the babies is not my concern, it's being able to give attention to my other kids I worry about. I would say you are TOTALLY normal, getting out that diaper bag after so many years of freedom will be daunting, but it's like riding a bike. Plus, now you have the experience and wisdom to savor every moment. I'm sure you remember how fast the time goes when they are oh so little. You'll do great, and probably have mixed emotions for some time to come. Good Luck!!

I just found out at 6 weeks that I was suppose to be having twins, but one was a blighted ovum. I actually felt very relieved that I wasn't going to have two, but now I may have problems with the other and feel quite sad. My hcg levels went from 91K down to 90K over the last two days and I don't know if it's because they have to drop back down to a normal singleton level before they rise again, or if I'm losing the other one too. My cousin had twins a few years ago and said that she found herself actually hoping that one would just "go away".

I hear ya! I am 20 and wasnt expecting one much less two. I am still not thrilled about it and I am about 9 weeks. When I found out I barely made it out to my car and just started crying for like an hour in the parking lot. I still am not thrilled about it. I mean I have heard that it is easier with twins because they do entertain themselves and they are a blessing...but sometimes it is hard to feel happy about it. Trust me you are totally normal!

i am currently 26 weeks into pregnancy of fraternal twins and i would like to say i m still upset about twins !its harder on the body and getting uncomfortable,but saying that i would be devastated if i lost one just take each day as it comes and remember your not pregnant for ever and double trouble could well be a double blessing x good luck

I have a 10 month old and I am expecting twins in july! I was so scared at first but now I am excited. once the initial shock wore off I realized that God will not give me more than I can handle. Oh, did I mention I live 12 hours away from any family!!! It will all work out some how! Best of luck

It is normal. I just had my ID twin girls in February at 31 weeks. When I found out I cried for months. Then I couldn't imagine not having two. One of my daughters died in utero and it has tore me apart. You will see in the future how you will come to love both babies.
