12. "Wow, twins, rather you than me."
Do you know what, when I first found out I was having twins, I would rather it had been anyone other than me. Anyone at all. So long as it wasn't happening to me. I was terrified and full of dread. It felt, at times, like a big burden. I was in shock. I'm not proud that I felt like that. But I did.
The sonographer scanned me and said; 'well the good news is your pregnant, and the other good news is there are two of them.'
My response was; 'that is NOT good news'.
But now, when people say 'rather you than me' (and thankfully it hasn't happened too too often), my immediate response (in my head) is "yes, I'm glad it happened to me and not to you".
I guess that says it all, and answers the question most twin parents ask, of 'does it get easier?'
