I'm another tall gal (5'10) and I do think it made my twin pregnancy easier ... I carried them to 39 weeks and 5 days, and they were 6lbs 10 and 7lbs 8! I was big, for sure, but I carried them just fine.

Having said that, I can now see that in retrospect it was significantly harder on my body than I really realized at the time, and I'm just not bouncing back from this pregnancy in the same way (or anywhere near!) as I did with my first.

Good luck ... I truly believe that babies are just waiting for the right mama, and the right time, whether it's one or two or more!
