Al Gore Left Me Out of the Equation

One of the many glorious symptoms of pregnancy, especially in early pregnancy (for me, two days after I conceived) is an overproduction of methane from the derriere. It seems completely unnecessary and waste of valuable fuel. It makes me sad to think that both cattle and pregnant women are major contributors to global warming and thus the death of many polar bears.

Confession

I am secretly concerned that using a laptop will cause my babies to grow fins.

Introduction

Its 6:21am. My bladder has woken me again. I am 26 weeks pregnant with fraternal twin boys.

I am often surprised by my daily experiences being pregnant with twins and the total lack of glamour surrounding baby growing. There is a lot "they" don't tell you, or rather a lot "they" only mention if you google search long enough.

I get asked all the time what pregnancy is like, especially because I am the only person in my circle of friends in this predicament. I have "journaled" internally since the surreal moment the stick turned positive but as usual my thoughts and experiences find their way to "paper" as more questions from the public are flung my way.

I am a honest person. I am also a person who struggles: typical of my personality type (borderline introvert/extrovert, depression prone, creative, intelligent, slightly ADD, neurotic, with a morbid sense of humour, etc). So expect me to "go there". But one must always cover their tokhes, so DISCLAIMER:
Every pregnancy experience is different for every woman; and not all women carry twins.
