I am working with the company that puts on this festival in June every year, trying to get sponsors for the festival. Hey, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do to pay the bills, right?

Pregnant with Twins March 6, 2011Posted by lisawifemom in It's All About the Twins.

In the past week, I have heard of 3 people who are “spontaneously” pregnant with twins, which in this fertility-treatment-driven time, is a bit crazy. And in at least two of the cases, there were no twins in the family, so it was really unexpected; in fact at least one couple wasn’t even trying to get pregnant. Can you imagine?
“Uh oh, we weren’t careful enough, now we’re pregnant.” Then 5 months later, “Oh by the way, you’re having twins!” Ahhhh!
Last week I delivered a meal to one of the pregnant women. I’m a member of the Beach Cities Parents of Multiples Club and this is a service we offer our new parents, we take turns delivering two meals to them. This mom was in the last few days of her pregnancy but wanted to be prepared and have the meals ready to go in her freezer (smart cookie). I so much enjoyed our first phone conversation, the slight panic in her voice bringing back memories, the satisfaction of being able to share some things to put some of that panic to rest, it was helpful, for both of us.
I took my twins with me the day I delivered the meal. My son and daughter are almost 5.5 years old now. She was thrilled to see them, see me still alive and well. ☺ She asked a bunch more questions, I gave her a bunch more advice, she was extremely thankful for the meal, and advice, and we were on our way. Again, it was helpful, for both of us. For obvious reasons for her, but for me, it was pleasurable to relive some of those memories I had forgotten, or just not thought of recently. It was also very fulfilling to be able to help someone thru what I know is such an unreal experience. Having two babies growing in your body is something that a person cannot explain properly. Then those first few months of trying to rear those two tiny people, oh my, again, unexplainable. So to be able to help someone, even just a little, thru those feelings is wonderful.
Are you a or do you have twins? Do you feel that only people with your same experience truly get it?
