- "Her entire body got stretch marks. She was huge. I mean, by the end of the pregnancy her body was so full of fluids even her nose got big. She had this huge old man nose--like it wouldn't stop growing!"
- "She was on bedrest for the last 2 months. All she could do was just lie there. She could hardly even move."
- "But then, we threw her a baby shower so she got out of bed to come to it, and when her husband dropped her off, she got out of the truck, grabbed her stomach and carried it into the house. Yes, she had to carry her stomach." [For effect Marlynn hunched over like Quasimodo and wrapped her arms around the imaginary "pregnant belly" and walked like she was carrying an extremely heavy parcel.]
Thank you for the enlightenment Marlynn. I had no idea that's what I'm in for. But truthfully, the only thing at this point that scares me more than giving birth to twins is not giving birth to twins. So, I'm just praying hard and carrying on. Just don't be surprised if you see me carrying my stomach around.
