I am about to find out what it is like to have 4 children; and i am a little nervous. I am currently 31 weeks (in my 8th month) pregnant with my second set of twins and I feel like I am going to pop. Sometimes I feel like I am cheating because this is only my second pregnancy, yet I will have 4 children. Sometimes I am happy that will not have to endure 4 pregnancies, but some days I am saddened that I won’t experience 4 separate pregnancies…make any sense?
My last pregnancy I was delivered via c-section at 35 weeks due to high blood pressure. The average gestation of twins is 35 weeks in general, which means that I could possibly give birth in 4-6 weeks. Yeah, reality check. My husband and I just realized this over the weekend and it dawned on us that we don’t have 2 cribs set up, we don’t have mattresses, we don’t have 2 extra cars seats, etc. I swear we are less prepared for this set of twins than the last set of twins. So now we are in rush mode. Put up cribs, buy mattresses, bottles, bibs…take a tour of the hospital. Oh yeah, new hospital this time and new doctors. No stress there.
As long as these babies are in my body it is pretty easy to have 4 kids (haha) but as soon as they are born…then what? What will life be like with 4 children under the age of 2? Just think of the diapers! I am mostly convinced that I will never leave the house again! I know the new babies will have doctor’s appointments and such, so I will have to figure it out. I am thinking about buying a quad stroller to fit all 4 kids. I have only really found 2, one is by Foundations and the other is by Angeles. Both are very expensive, heavy, and large. I would have to order it online and just hope that it fits in our van along with 4 car seats. I have heard that the quad just isn’t worth it but I don’t see how else I can get them around. Wish us luck, seriously.
