Twin Cursing Makes Me Nervous

It has been brought to my attention (thanks, Katie) that I have not posted in two months.  I think that is about right, as I am now...10+ weeks preggers with #3.  I know that I may be jinxing myself for putting it out on the web that I am with child, but since I am already sticking out of my pants and my boobs are popping out of all sides of my bra, there is not much denying it anymore.

So the past 2 months have been mostly wrought with fatigue, nausea, bitchiness, horribly disturbing dreams, moodiness, irrationality and cursing the damn skinny jeans I bought one week before I found out I was pregnant.  I am also living in fear that I am having twins.  There is no rational reason for this fear (see irrationality as a symptom of said pregnancy) other than that I already had a bump at 8 weeks, my friend says she is having twin dreams, my stepfather keeps wishing twins on me, and other people have seen me and have said something to the effect of "hmm, maybe you're having twins."  Oh, and my SIL had twins last year (along with a horrifying TTTS experience) and I have twin aunts.  And the nagging feeling that my pretty picture of 3 kids and NOT having to buy the freaken minivan everyone says I will need seems too gift-wrapped and perfectly bundled to come true.   And the idea of having 4 kids under the age of 4 scares the holy freaking crap out of me. Other than that, no rational reason for my fear.  Did I mention that I am sometimes a pessimist?

For the most part, I am starting to feel better (most days) as long as I stay away from things that smell like broccoli, feet, coffee or vino - mainly Tony (Bwahaha!).  And from people who tell me that I am going to have twins.

    !!!! Congratulations! That is so exciting! Number three - you do realize you're going to have more kids than hands now right? hehe!

    I've always wanted twins, people think I'm crazy. But don't worry, my sister is preggo with her second, and she's starting to show early, but she just thinks it's because everything is all stretched out inside already or something. It sounds good anyways.

  2. Don't worry, I gave you enough warning about eating Cassava and Tapioca flour, so you should be golden and a singleton.

  3. Hey, congrats, that's awesome! And I'm such a slacker friend, I didn't ever respond to your Christmas email. So you are forgiven for not writing on your blog forever! ;)
    My husband is a twin so I think it will be his sister who gets lucky. I don't think I'd be able to handle it either!

  4. Sorry I'm late; I'm behind in my reader. But a belated congratulations to you nonetheless!
