DEAR FUTURE TWIN PARENTS
Dear future twin parents, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Don’t worry, I know. I know how scary the fact you’re having twins can be. But it’s going to be okay. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know that a pregnancy with multiples is daunting. Well, at least for me it definitely was. The idea of bed rest and premature delivery always looming over my head as I sat with a goal to make it full term. Every twitch and ache would send me into a mini panic. The belly that expands so much quicker. The preparation for delivering two babies. The debating on whether it’d be vaginal or if it’d have to be a c-section. Some days it was an absolute struggle to enjoy a twin pregnancy with all the worry that floated around it.
Even on the days that it was exciting to think there were two babies coming our way there were so many more ‘what ifs’ running through my head. So don’t worry, you aren’t the only one worrying. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know that preparing to take care of two babies is stressful. That the idea of having to birth, hold, feed, change and raise multiple humans at once sounds impossible. That the logistics of getting two babies out the door and out in public can become complicated to imagine.
But I’m here to tell you it won’t be impossible. It won’t be easy at first but you know what? Neither was bringing home one baby either. You’ll figure out what works, you’ll find yourself ways to make it manageable for yourself – you’ll be okay. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You can do this.
