As we were leaving Dr. Larry King's office on Saturday morning, I noticed that there are an awful lot of pics of multiples hanging on their walls, even though their literature explains that they do what they can to reduce the risk of multiples. I found out throughout the weekend that twins were definitely a theme. Could it be that I was getting a signal? Maybe. Could it be that I'm a selfish, greedy infertile that wants several healthy children on the 1st go round so we can be done with this? Yep! Whatever the case, it was hard not to trip over twins this weekend.
1. My dear cousin had a beautiful baby girl On Friday in the wee hours of the morning. We went up to see the new little darling on Friday night and the woman in the room next to my cousin had twins. OK, maybe this was a funny coincidence. I was in the maternity ward and it was practically full. Chances are there might be twins someplace in there. I'll chalk that one up to chance.
2. Hubby and I DVR every TV show that we like throughout the week and spend some time on the couch together being lazy watching them on the weekend. One of our favorite shows is Rules of Engagement. If you don't know about this show, you need to. It's about a single womanizing man, a newlywed couple, and a couple that's been together a while that's going through infertility treatments (we weren't when we began watching - that IS a coincidence). I told Hubby that twins had been on my mind and then hit play on the show. The episode that we watched that Saturday was about the married couple finding out that their surrogate is possibly carrying twins. Hubby and I just kind of looked at each other and laughed. OK, the twin thing has come up twice in 24 hours now - and it was right after I told Hubby that twins were on my mind. Strange....
3. The kicker happened on Sunday (Mother's Day). We took my Mom out to eat for Mother's Day after church. We had to stand in line for quite a while to get into the restaurant. And what do you think ends up in line behind us? The most adorable set of blond-haired, blue-eyed 2 1/2 year old twin girls. I spotted them, pointed them out to Hubby and his response, while laughing, was, "Well of course there are twins behind us. What else would you expect right now?" The little girls played and laughed and brought such joy to their family. OK, this is more than a coincidence....
4. On Monday morning, I went to work to have a co-worker tell me that she had a dream about me the night before. I was almost afraid to ask. What was the dream about? I ended up having multiples and brought them to work, where chaos ensued. Now even other people are dreaming about it? You've got to be kidding me.
I get it. I'm fully on board. Bring 'em on, please.
