I'm a planner folks.  You all know this by now, or if not, you certainly will in the coming months. And some of you may call me brazen, you may say I am being overly optimistic or just plain stupid, but I have started to get ready for twins.  

I've talked to my friends with twins about what I'm going to need.  I've asked them to hang on to some stuff for me.  

I've even *gasp* BOUGHT a twin thing or two.  I went to an awesome resale event a few weeks ago and I could not resist some barely used, half-price things.  

Call me crazy.  

I'm okay with that.  Because if I'm not crazy now, I will definitely fit that bill come spring.  

I just have a very strong sense that Les Twinkies are here to stay.  They are not going anywhere. Every single day, all day, they make their presence known to me as I wonder if I will make it to my favorite house of porcelain for the umpteenth time.  

They are here to stay. They are strong, so strong. They are coming home some months from now.

And I'll be damned if I'm not as prepared as I can possibly be.  

Because that would be crazy, brazen and just plain stupid.

I started preparing a lot earlier this pregnancy too. I think a lot of it is because I also felt that they would definitely arrive -- and I worried about pre-term labor, bedrest, etc. that would hinder my productivity towards the end of the pregnancy.

That is fabulous!! I admire it - I am scared shitless still.

BUT - I am going to a sale that the local moms of multiples puts on only twice per year - that means my little Sprouts will be here before their sale in the Spring - so I may buy a thing or two tomorrow...

I am really sorry you are still throwing up. It has been a while for me - a week or two - but I did throw up Wednesday night...

Good for you!! I feel very confident, too... not only do I feel VERY pregnant constantly, but with one successful pregnancy behind me, I am more confident in my body's ability to grow these two munchkins.

However, I am not brave enough to buy any twin stuff quite yet. Although as I type that, I am thinking about the minivan we are shopping for, and the general contrators who I've been meeting with to renovate our upstairs to handle three kids. :)

I literally JUST started taking off tags of triplet clothing, and here I am, two days short of 30 weeks.

Much harder to do all of this with no energy, bed rest and no ability to bend over unassisted.

Way better to prepare early, I say!!

Big hugs,

I cannot tell you how much I love your attitude! And you are so smart to be getting prepared now... especially with a toddler in tow. It must be so fun to be shopping for cute little twinkies! ;)

I was completely wrong about Brian & Ashleigh's baby gender but FWIW, I'm thinking pink for you.
