I'm getting all of the same comments. I think it bothered me more when I first found out because I was so scared and didn't have a lot of answers. So when someone would ask, "Twins? What are you gonna do?!?" I always responded with some smartass answer like, "I'm gonna see which one cries the least and keep that one!"
But now I have accepted it as my fate. I am excited to have 3 children. I am a damn good mother and I will love these boys just as strongly as I love my daughter. They will be warm and they will be loved if its the last thing I do. People say stupid shit because they don't think it could ever happen to them. But it does. Twins are a blessing bestowed only to those whose hearts are big enough to carry them. It does not matter how we do it, it only matters that we do it.
People are ignorant and I am sure I was the same way before my kids were conceived. I think its best to smile and say thank you. Because, depsite the comment, people are taking the time to revel at how remarkable you are. Your body is in mid-miracle and it can sometimes be a little too much for onlookers. So hold your head proud, mama.
Ive had all these silly comments too. I cant go out without being stopped a hundred times. I have to have a triple pushchair as my daughter is only 11 months older than the twins. I always get "aww triplets" x
I keep getting people asking if they are moving yet because they can't wait to feel my tummy when they are moving coz they've never felt twins move before. Call me stupid but how can it feel any different than 1 baby to someone else. I don't mind people I know touching my tummy but I remember when pg with eldest OH and I had gone to the dancing with friends for a friends birthday it just happened to be Halloween weekend. I had gone to the loo had just finished washing my hands and a girl came right up to me saying OMG is that real - she lifted my top and rubbed my tummy. I was absolutely speechless hated a stranger touching me and also thought why the hell would I have a fake bump?
