    Default General Discussion ~ Twins & More #4

    Hello mums and dads of multiples

    Please feel free to introduce yourself and your twins or more, maybe also describing the hardest part about being a parent to a multiple as well as the best part! Enjoy!

    Do you all find that when you tell people you have twins they always ask "was it natural or IVF?" I think it's a very personal question. Mine were natural but those of you through IVF do you get offended or am I just being over-sensitive?

    I agree people seem to think they can ask personal q's. the other one is " on which side of the family has twins" and they never believe you when you say neither,

    I'm glad it's not just me. But I guess when you are pregnant with twins everyone is intrigued and then when you have them they are more intrigued as to how you cope. I tell them it's not a bad thing, I'm extremely lucky. My cousin's wife yesterday said to me "I was going to say it when you were pregnant but decided not to, how the hell will you/are you coping with two? One is so hard." Either I have great babies, am very organised or don't know any different but I'm not finding it 'so hard'. It's nice to hear from people that I am doing so well etc. But I think every mother is a wonderful person who deserves an award. We just do everything twice. LOL.

    i Think when you find out your pregnant with twin it is very overwhelming but you have a while to try and prepare youself. I dont think you ever can really prepare yourself but being a twins mummy i think only the special, organised mummies have twins because we will learn to cope with them. they are hard but you learn to cope. were super mums

    Ohh I agree. I get asked all sorts of personal questions, usually by little old ladies on pension day.

    My fave is "Are you breastfeeding them"? I can just imagine their little old minds boggling at the thought!

    Also agree that you are never REALLY prepared for twins! Just one day at a time over here!

    Why is it that old people are facinated by twins? They stalk me at shopping centres.

    I used to find them the worst at shopping centres, they would stand directly in front of the pram so you had to stop. UGH

    I totally agree with shopping centres. Everybody wants to look, ask how old they are, any twins in the family, & so on. I just want to get the shopping done!

    It's lovely that they are interested but sometimes you are in a rush and they are the 100th person and you don't want to be rude but you have to ignore them otherwise you'll be out longer than you wanted and they'll be due for a feed, then your out even longer!!
