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!
Awesome! Thanks for sharing that! I've had one other friend who was tall and had twins. She seemed to have a pretty uneventful pregnancy except for getting PUPPs later in the pregnancy. I really enjoyed both of my singleton pregnancies so I'm hoping I could enjoy a potential twin pregnancy too.

Just because a twin pregnancy is automatically considered high-risk doesn't mean it will be. I've had hypertension in all my pregnancies, so I didn't contribute that to my twins. Other than the last 2 wks on bed rest, my pregnancy was really uneventful.
Wow, 42 weeks! That's amazing but wow! I didn't know twin pregnancies were allowed to go that long these days. 37 weeks is awesome! Thanks for posting that!
