lol gina.. I am sh*tting my dacks lol.

I have to give up my studio in the house we are building now... for the (gulp) twins.. lol sounds so strange saying that.

I don't know if they are identical or not.. and I don't know how or when i would find out *shrugs* your guess is as good as mine... I am clueless about twins... i don't know anyone with twins :cries:

OMG Kat!!!!  That is actually the first thing Troy asked when we went in for our ultrasound, "Is there only 1 in there?".  I know easier said than done, but look at it as how clever you are, you not only created one other little person you managed to create 2 at the same time.  I know your head must be spinning but YOU CAN DO IT!!!   You guys are fantastic parents to your current three children, and have already learnt to juggle between more than 1.  You sound like a pretty cruisy person, and you will probably surprise yourself at how well you do manage.  Try and look at the positives....  If I wasn't a 2 day drive away, I would come and give you a big hug too!!  bbighug.gif

AFM - I have become quite aquainted with the toilet bowl lately.  Not actually vomiting, but dry retching, not sure what is worse, I just wish something would come up and it might actually make me feel better.  sick.gif

Lol - Kat....I'm with Mandy tho - I am sure you will manage somehow....I guess the rest of us can learn from your example now too  wink.gif You guys are obviously VERY fertile  blush.gif God - new stroller, carseats, beds, house, car?....eeekkk. My mind is boggling for you  laugh.gif xx

Kat I'm stilll in shock for you, but you will be fine I promise. You will just make it work and you sound like the type of person who will be just able to do it  original.gif

Funny that's what we, Mandy and I, were talking about just a few weeks ago.

Have you told your parents yet? Or Shane or are you waiting til he gets home?

#32 00ruby00

Posted 12 November 2009 - 02:20 PM

just about everyone knows.. now  ( well close family).. I told Shane lastnight.. I was going to wait til he got home.. but a week is along time to wait. Plus xavier knew... coz he went to the ob with me.. so i didn't want xav to tell shane before I did.

yes, gina.. we need to buy all that stuff lol

Holy Crap Kat!  i saw your sig first before the pic and i was just staring at the screen going really, no, not twins, really!  wow
This is going to be a huge adjustment for you guys but you will do it. It will be crazy times but you will get through!  Hope the pregnancy isn't too hard on you.

How did shane take it?  Was he ok?  Probably still in shock like all of us.

mamacougar - i think you need to test! Test test test test test test test.

aj- hope katja's teeth are ok. We all need to go visit the dentist soon - haven't been in years.

Hello all my lovely mummies

Just a quick update from me - thought it had all started - have been getting contractions about 10 mins apart (down to 6 minutes apart at times) but today they have stopped completely.  I hate pre-labour!!!

Will keep you guys updated - hoping something might happen over the weekend.

Will bbl.

Tummy rubs and raspberries to all.

Dons - Congratulations on your bfp!!! Glad the spotting has let up and glad dh is being good about it all.  Am thinking of you and wishing you all the best!

Jill - will be stalking for news.........Hope its a quick labour for you.

Not much happening here. our camping trip this weekend has been cancelled which is good as i have a head cold that is making me feel like crap.

Hope you all have a good weekend.

Hi all

I just got a phone call to say I got that job I applied for. Can't remember if I mentioned it before but I applied for a job at reduced hours (25 per week) rather than the 40 hours I do now. It is with the same company, just different department. Anyways, I got it, and also when i told him I was pregnant too he was awesome about it said congrats, that it doesn't change a thing and that he was very impressed that I was upfront with him!!! Awesome news hey!!

eexcite.gif eexcite.gif

At least I know now that I have a nice cruisy school hours job to come back to after mat leave too. He also said that he will issue me with a laptop so if there is anytime I might be sick with morning sickness or have appointments to get to I can just log on from home!!! I was so stoked with his reaction!!!

Jilly - sending {{{labour}}} vibes your way.

Dons good to hear the spotting has stopped!!!
