    mumzy I know I am accually finding it VERY hard, I was the typical career women, now I am the women covered in baby poop. Life seems to be leaving me behind now. But I must say they are well worth it.

    Hi all,

    I've been MIA for a while now. I've been converted to the AMBA forum, it gets too quiet on here for me, not that I don't think a lot of you!

    Congrats lola that's great news. Hope all your bubs are doing well.

    I am 19 weeks today !! I have my u/s in 6 days and we finally get to find out what we are having. I am interested in how everyone deals with the IVF question, It really is very personal question to ask someone. I think I would be blown over if someone stopped me with my twins in the buggy since nobody talks to me now in the stores (Brisbane) I think I would be shocked !!! Mine were IVF but I don't really feel like telling strangers or even some people we know. Any good lines ??

    huge congratulations and goodluck for finding out what you are having - make sure you tell us

    Well they will ask *nods heads* - a guy in our twin group who didn't have IVF said he told them I had sex to shock them if they asked him...

    they usually ask in a more subtle way I find - like

    are they natural ? or do twins run in the family ?...

    1. IVf is not to be ashamed of anyway - I think about 50% of twins are IVF now - doesn't matter how they got here.

    but if you think it is too personal for strangers ...Smile and say something witty ...

    well they aren't made of plastic (are they natural ?)

    or you bought them on ebay (since the running joke in our twin group is that we tell our kids we are putting them for sale on ebay ... and ask tiggy too - her paed said it)

    2. Do twins run in the family ? ... yes they do ... upstairs,downstairs and all through the house.

    have you joined a AMBA club I am sure people will tell you lots of funny answers.

    Also, has anyone seen how many sets of dolls come in twins - there must be half dozen or more in the target catalogue ... say you bought them on special at Target toy sale !

    Oh Heather!
    Welcome to the mad world of having multiples!
    They definately WILL ask you. Especially if they are little, old and have silver/white hair! They think it is their god given right to know!!! Not only will they ask if they are natural or IVF, they will ask if you are bottling or B/F, if they are identical (even if they are OBVIOUSLY differing sex). They will know someone, whose Sister's Aun'ts Uncle twice removed had twins and they are 21 now, so there IS life after twins. You do get used to it...or you don't ever go outside again...or you do what Trish does and come back with witty statements that shock them into silence!!!!

    Twin life is wonderful! You just learn to take everything with a grain of salt, twice over. Looking forward to getting to know you!

    Lola you are amazing....Did you go into labour on your own or were you induced?

    I have never heard of quads being born naturally,I'm speechless.

    oh ,twin comments...
    I am often asked are they twins??? I answer no they're triplets we left the other one at home...

    My twins were conceived naturally and I've only ever been asked once if they were IVF.As soon as you become pregnant you are open to all sorts of questions.It's amazing the questions you get asked.

    i just didn't look at anyone when i shopped with my twins. Eye contact meant coversation. Its great now they are older and don't look anything like the same age-lolol
    the IVF question ?? Are they natural? I would say as natural as two sperm and two eggs can be.
    goodluck with knowing the flavour
    welcome to the world of multiple maddness
