Game plan and Twins?

I have a game plan now. I'm going to relax and enjoy Thanksgiving and the weekend that follows, and then on Monday (or early next week) I'm going to call the doctor's office to set up my first appointment. I haven't gone in yet because 1)I've honestly kind of been expecting to miscarry and 2)there's nothing that can be seen/done at this time anyway, so I'd rather just wait to go until I can actually see something. The other thing is that my son makes my OB appointments very complicated (because I either have to find someone to watch him or I have to take him with me.) So less is more.

Then there's the twins thing. My Mom is a fraternal twin. Fraternal twins are genetic and they usually/often skip a generation. That means I (arguably) have a better chance of having twins than the average person.

Years ago, my Mother in Law had a fortune teller tell her that one of her sons would have twin girls. (Not that I put a TON of stock in that, but it's part of the story.) Her other son is definitely done having children, so that leaves us. THEN today on one of my friends (who doesn't know I'm pregnant) wrote "I had a dream last night that you were pregnant with twins!!! Ready to give D a brother AND a sister? ;-)"

Oh goodness. I'm certainly not counting on anything but it was enough to make the little hairs on the back of my neck stand on end! (What's really funny is that the same friend (or maybe a friend of hers) had a dream that I was pregnant before she knew that I was pregnant with D! How crazy is that?

isn't that psychic dream stuff crazy. Funny enough as a little girl I always wanted twins. And then when my body was failing me with miscarriages I gave up on the idea thinking I could barely carry one...only to low and behold now be pregnant with twins! Life is funny like that. Well here's hoping for a healthy pregnancy for you whether double or single :)

Twins run in my family too and everyone kept joking I was having twins this time around. U/S revealed only one baby. I was kind of sad, I actually wanted two. As long as the one I have now survives though I will be happy.
