Nightmare?

Our 30-day free trial of cable ends this week so I was enjoying a chicky TLC show the other day. At least, I thought it would be enjoyable because most TLC shows are. But this one left me hyperventilating in my seat. It was called Twins by Surprise and, like the title would suggest, it was 4 stories of women who during labor discovered that they were delivering, not one baby but two! All of the women had no genetic markings for twins which made me hyperventilate even more. My only comfort- the reasons these women did not know that they were carrying twins until birth are avoidable. 1. Not having a home birth and home prenatal care (having home prenatal care would mean no ultrasounds). 2. Having a modern birth (one of the women delivered back in the day when ultrasounds were not available). 3. An unassisted home birth (um, who in their right mind would choose that?! This woman birthed footling breach twins with a very frantic husband as her only companion! Very dangerous). Whew, I'm breathing... I'm breathing... I'm breathing...

At least you're not like my cousin (daughter of a twin) that had two sets of twin boys three years apart. :)

I watched that whole thing too. I agree with you. You decides "I think I'll have a baby all by myself with not one soul to help me"
