Well a hearty congratulations to our Australian born Crown Princess Mary & her Danish Royal Family on the birth of twins on the weekend. How exciting, i know twins were a complete surprise to us at that 14 week ultrasound & changed our lives. My parents told me i needed a challenge as our first daughter was so easy!!
1. Are they Identical?? No, my twins are fraternal & yes, mummies of boy/ girl twins get asked this too & people will agrue with you they could be identical?? Honestly!!
2. IVF?? In my case no, but really, what does it matter to anyone else!!
3. Delivered Naturally?? In my case yes, again, what does it matter to anyone else!!
4. Breastfeeding?? After breastfeeding my first born for 18 months, i figured i was such a cow, feeding twins would be a breeze. It was, i had plenty of milk for 18 months. I loved breastfeeding (twin feeding) as it was the only time i ever sat down.
Just in case this all sounded a little too perfect . . . i spent time in physio, tore all my transverse abdominal muscles, had to use crutches & wear a brace during my pregnancy, then do 20 months of Yoga to rebuild my tummy, just in time to get pregnant with our son.
