What an idiot.

I'm 16 weeks pregnant with twins and we told my in laws today that we're having two babies instead of one.

I never in a million years imagined this ending up being an issue, but my mother in law started right in. She asked what fertility issues I had and what we used. I was surprised, but told her nothing, and no issues. She spent 10 minutes telling me I was lying, that twins don't run in families and it's too big a coincidence that I'm a twin and having twins so we have to have used something.

Her next thing was that I was lying about having twins, because when twins do run in families, they skip a generation so I can't have twins, because I am a twin.

I ended up walking out and told her if she thinks I'm lying about the twins, well, she doesn't have to ever see them.

She is an idiot, but you'd be surprised by how many people have crazy ides about twins. I'm a twin, my mother is a twin, and my twin sister has a set of twins, we've all run into our share of silly comments.

In my case, most people don't even realize I'm a twin because I have a twin brother and we don't look alike at all.

Maybe she was in denial? Jealous? Stupid?

I guess, but damn! we've had our issues in the past, I just never thought something as joyful as us having two babies would cause issues.

My best friend is an identical twin.
She had identical twin girls as well.
It happens.

Identical twins are just coincidence, but yeah, it does happen. I'm a fraternal twin and my twins are most likely fraternal as well.
