Hey! Doesn't look like there are a lot of people in here but I want to broaden my horizons on Livejournal and get to know some more people-so since this is a twin post-I thought I might be more at home-now that I'm getting the hang of this place ^^
My name is Megan and I have an identical sister-Tori.
It's kinda hard-being seperated [she's in the navy-stationed down in Florida-while I'm stuck up here at college]...but we have a love/hate relationship anyway-lol!
Not really sure what to say as yet...just wanted to make a brief intro post..later!

i'm a twin, and i rule!
hi... i joined because i_am_a_twin ... i just thought i should write that one because it's also another twin community obviously...

me and my twin are fraternal but people think we look alot alike though... always getting those, "are you sisters?" because they want you to reply with, "we're twins"... or people look at us, and then turn around, and look again are amazed because they're two of us... the twin question never gets old but sometimes it'd be easier if i had a shirt on all the time that said, "we're twins".

Come visit <a href-"http://pub50.ezboard.com/bcanadope">Canadope</a>! We're apparently getting a lot of traffic from a bunch of different sites all over the web. I'm just getting used to this admin gig, and it definitely involves promo! (well, maybe not strictly.. but the way I see it, part of my job is to direct people to the site) So excuse / forgive my insane cross-posting. At least I'm not resorting to illegal means to drive traffic to the site. ;)

Non-Canadians are welcome, and some are already registered. So don't worry, it won't be all us Canadians against the rest of the world. :D

If you want to register, you'll need a free EZBoards account. Shouldn't be too hard to get.. but of course, you're free to lurk around as well. :) So come visit, and please give me feedback here if you do. I think we need all the feedback we can get! (it's only been up and running for two days proper.. give us time to iron out the kinks, aye?)

Hey, my friend lel told me about this community, since she knows I'm interested in twins. Thought I'd join you, though I'm not a twin myself. Is that bad? Hope not!

The Birth of Daughters
By Karen C. Driscoll

I am finally, and victoriously pregnant after seven
years of marriage. I am also absurdly worried about what
my mother will think. I've recently gone back to school
for a master's degree. My husband is not quite finished
with a Ph.D. program. I feel like we're being a little
reckless, like we have no business even thinking about a
child, let alone strategically planning the optimal
conditions to make one.
So, I nervously rehearse the "big news." My worst
fear is a raised eyebrow asking, "and just how do you think
you're going to raise this child on a student's income?"
Asking, in fact, the very question that I'm nervously
asking myself, "What are you? Crazy?!"
I end up telling my parents by inviting them to
Thanksgiving dinner even though it's only Easter. "Well,
it's a little far ahead to make plans," my dad says. I
tell him I already know what I'll be doing, - getting ready
to deliver his first grandkid. He looks surprised, but
definitely not elated.
My stomach starts to sink.
I think I wince as I look to my mother for her
response. It's my turn to be surprised. She rockets off
the couch, doing a little victory dance, exclaiming, "I
knew it! I knew you were pregnant! I'll be right back!"
And she runs off upstairs. She returns with a little
gift bag. "Here!" she says, thrusting it at me, "Presents
for the baby! I just knew you were pregnant! I was
wondering when you'd tell us. I've had this stuff for over
a month."
I've only known for a month myself.
I admit to my mom that I was expecting a lecture from
her regarding our financial situation. I can tell that the
thought has never even crossed her mind. I hear the words,
"Oh, don't worry the money. Everything will work out just
Later, I find out we are not expecting a baby. We're
expecting two. It takes a while to sink in. This time, my
mother, a twin herself, is the first person I call. From
that moment on, she's my constant pregnancy companion.
Looking back, I'm embarrassed by my ignorance, but I
guess I thought maybe she'd pat me on the head, tell me to
eat Saltines when I felt like barfing, and send me some
flowers in the hospital.
Instead she acts like she's just won the lottery. She
tells everyone who will listen that she's going to be a
grandmother of twins. She buys me maternity clothes. She
"picks up" things for the babies. ("Hi honey, I just
bought a couple of wardrobes for your embryos"). She sends
me cards.
She calls me regularly.
I go into labor early and unexpectedly. Mom sounds
nervous, but thrilled.
I wish she could be with us, but we're hundreds of
miles apart.
About six hours later the nurse tells me I have a
visitor in the waiting room. In walks mom. I actually
think that fatigue and pain are making me see things.
"How did you get here?" I ask incredulously. I know
she can't possibly have driven, there hasn't been enough
time. "I flew, and then I took a taxi."
She tells me matter-of-factly, as if this is the kind
of thing she does on a daily basis. She, like me, hates to
fly, probably even more than she hates to drive. "Did you
think I'd miss this for the world?" she asks me.
"All I know is I really wanted you to be here."
"I know that, honey, that's why I came."
When she sees her tiny, squalling granddaughters for
the first time, she makes it as far as my husband. She
hugs him and starts to cry. It's as if she'll never stop.
And I know her tears are tears of deep relief. I know they
are tears of intense joy and intense love. I know they are
the tears that a mother cries for a child. I know it
because I can taste it in the salt of my own tears.
I offer her up two tiny bodies and feel the ties that
connect us bind tightly as she takes her granddaughters
into her arms for the first time.
"There are some things you'll never understand until
you have kids. You'll see," she has always told me. And
sitting there in that hospital bed, totally exhausted and
emotionally raw, seeing my mother holding my two impossibly
light brand-new daughters, I think I do see. I see that
becoming a mother has not only given me the gift of loving
a child with an intensity that I never knew existed, but
also the gift of my own mother - and the sudden realization
that I am, and have been all my life, loved the same way.
May the circle be unbroken.

Ah, well, as I said in the userinfo page, I haven't found a good Twin community on livejournal. What's up with that? There's GOT to be more twins floatin' around somewhere..

So even if you know a twin, you can join. :)

I will be trying to modify this journal, I'm sure. But until we get things rolling, this works. So please join and post!
