Tales from the Nesting Place - Chapter 2

Hello everyone in blogging land,

Just a quick update form the nesting place… On Tuesday March 8th we found out that Lisa and Chris are going to be the parents of 2 wee ones ..all cozy side by side for the long haul in their little jelly bean looking water beds.


OMG I was so happy it was ONLY two….. I mean wow one would be easy come on I have done that one three times before, but hopefully having 2 in there will be about the same. Uncomplicated!

I guess this time labor and delivery will be the different factor. This is where having twins terrifies me…. C-section :-( ...weeks after delivery of living on the main floor of my home so as not to pop stitches.

How will I care for my family? More importantly …how will I rule the roust if I can’t even climb to the top??? Hummmm sounds like problem solving time.

When it’s all said and done it will all be well worth it to have helped Lisa and Chris complete their family.

I could not be happier that the universe put Lisa and Chris and myself on colliding paths they are the perfect people to take a journey with. They are by far the perfect example of the statement, "if at first you don’t succeed TRY, TRY again", and I love that.

As of right now I am feeling about the same as normal hungry enough to eat an entire breakfast buffet in the morning and too full to move in the evening …… lol not sure that will ever change.

I feel like I am expanding at an alarming rate however to look at me you would not say so… pants would say different ….. thank goodness pants can’t talk!

Thanks for reading!

LOL! I'm so glad to hear that you are feeling well, hungry, but well. I'm praying that this pregnancy is another easy, painless one for you.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for doing this for them. It takes a special kind of person to do this.

All my very best to you!

Thank you so much for this beautiful gift to two deserving parents. As for the c-section talk it over with your Dr cause there are TONS of women who have twins without a section.

Thanks again for being so amazing!

This is one of the best things to ever happen in our family. We are one pair of the very excited grandparents, and words are simply inadequate to express what we are feeling. I try to put it into words, but nothing seems grateful enough. When we think about what you are doing for Lisa and Chris and how this all came about, it's still dreamlike that we are in this position, thanks to a very generous and empathatic couple. I hope it will be enough to just say that we are profoundly moved by what you are doing for all of us. This is huge, monumental (to say nothing of your tummy at the end of this!!) You have made possible, something we were beginning to give up on, so not only do we get TWO brand new members of the family, but we also get to know YOUR amazing family. We will hold you close to our hearts in the months to come. We are the cheering section, maybe from a distance, but to be included in this amazing process is so exciting, and as you can tell, we are beside ourselves with joy. Lisa's extended family and friends in Scotland and England are also following closely, so you are now famous at home and abroad!!
Looking forward to chapter 3 of "Tales from the Nesting Place"

Ohhh we are the "friends" section cheering on here. We are all so thankful that Lisa and Chris found you and that you are able to provide this wonderful gift for them. We'll be watching, cheering you on, being a comfort, whatever you'd like. I'm sure you'll do just fine. If it comes down to it, if the babies cannot be delivered naturally, I assure you that c-sections are A-Ok to recover from. I've had 2 myself and life was back to normal within a few days. But one step at a time.

Cheers to amazing people like you. I hope you have an uneventful pregnancy all the way to October !!

I agree with the above comment - you can definitely have a vaginal birth with twins!
