Learning It’s Twins!

17-wk-ultrasound

For weeks I counted down to May 16th. I would be 17 weeks and I had made an appointment with Baby Sightings to have a private gender ultrasound done. We planned for this day! They allowed 10 people in the room for the ultrasound and I wanted to fill it up. At the last minute, […]

Delivering Twins

September 19th. Week 37. Who’s going to sleep knowing today was the day you’ll be holding your TWINS?! Joanne and I were up early. The day before was fun filled, it was Zadey’s birthday. And instead of a birthday party, she chose to have “a day of surprises.” So we had run around all day, […]

Have you heard the cliché about U-Haul Lesbians? No? Okay, it’s simple. What do lesbians take to a second date? A U-Haul. Get it? It wasn’t quite like that, but nearly. It was Thanksgiving, and I was hanging out on AOL. Oh yes, it was that long ago. I’m sure I was busy chatting it […]
