I can't imagine them NOT sharing clothes and sorting everything out every time!
You'll have plenty of laundry with twins anyway.
I was due in July and really didn't mind being pregnant in the heat! You can live in maxi dresses and flip flops and not need a lot of expensive winter maternity clothes. And a few weeks after...
Just echoing at this point, but you'll be tested for the common inheritable issues during pregnancy (cf, tay sachs, sickle cell anemia, etc) based on family history and ethnic background. 23andme...

We were together for eight years and married for four before we had our first. We bought and renovated a house two years into our marriage.
Honestly, I was ready for babies much earlier, but in...
We know we want two (probably spaced 2-3 years apart) and after that, we'll probably consider whether a third fits into the picture depending on timing, careers, funds, etc...
I didn't register for clothes either...and still got sooo many. I'd wait and just fill in the gaps later. People will buy clothes and toys regardless of whats on your registry. We did love the baby...
I don't think it's too early at all! If I remember correctly, we registered a week or two after our 20 week ultrasound. You can always add some things in early January if you have more time to...

Hate hate hate needles...I cry and panic before and pass out frequently after blood work. :(
That said, I didn't refuse any tests during pregnancy: initial screening, NT scan, quad screen,...
I started prenatals, started tracking my (irregular) cycle, tried to cut back alcohol and caffeine (continued to have my two cups of coffee and glass of wine (not at the same time!), but cut back. I...

Hmmm, we're going to be six months in January and are also on the small side, fitting nicely into 0-3/3 right now. I'm expecting her to be in 3-6/6 for the majority of the winter and need both cold...
It took my parents awhile to decide on names but they chose G-mom and G-Pop. It was a fun thing to ask them about names and go down a list of possibilities. My inlaws are from Poland so they're...

Very very normal. :)
I still have irregular cycles at 27 and was able to have a baby without any trouble. Sometimes your cycle will regulate within a couple years, other times, it will just become...

Definitely what everyone has said, get the OPKs.
My cycles are long and irregular too. I forget exactly how many days it was, but quick math, my last period was September 13, 2012, I got a...

Yes, she's been my clone since day one....honestly I could have spawned her. It's a good thing she has my husband's feet and we have a female mail carrier.
Well I got an epidural and it didn't have any effect.
I have to say, I never understood why someone would choose to forego pain relief until I had my accidental natural birth. I was walking around...

Livvy smiled super early, she had been random smiling since birth, but real response smiled on her one month birthday.
Rolling over, so far (12 weeks) she's only done belly to back a couple times...

I just ran into the kitchen with the pee stick and blurted it out.
I already had the memorable backdrop---I took my pregnancy test during Hurricane Sandy and we live right on Long Island Sound....

Oh ottilie, I would cry if I met Jeanette Winterson too!! I just adore her writing.
The Passion -Jeanette Winterson
Lying -Lauren Slater
Love Walked In -Marisa de los Santos
Family names to me can be anyone you want to honor...I'm named for two favorite aunts so not direct line. My daughter's middle name is her father's great grandmother's name.
I'm not sure about...
Let's just go with beautiful inside and out. ;)
I'll bite. My daughter is only two months old but she amazes me constantly, such a good natured baby and it's fun to see bits of personality coming...
We didn't announce the name until after she arrived....which led to some great nicknames from family members including Misty (short for Mystery), Laverne (just because), and Darba (after our dog,...

I was also read "real" books as a child, even if they go completely over the little one's head now, it's just fun to hear a parent read aloud and will certainly make them want to revisit classics...
I started around 32 weeks.
I agree! Take advantage of it as long as you don't wear yourself out and make lots of food you can freeze for post-baby!
I organized every closet twice and made a...
I'd say this is a year for people to stay flexible and come to you if they want to visit! You may not be able to travel anyway, my OB didn't want me more than an hour from the hospital for the last...
Cole slaw, iceberg lettuce, and Caesar salad
Also chicken croquettes from a diner...sadly impossible to find around here. I still haven't gotten those!
