You know the situation you're in is stressful if you think being pregnant with multiples would be nice so you can quit

I'm president of the local library board & we are in the midst of a very stressful, controversial situation with the regional library system & the city & county.

On Wednesday, I was in a meeting with the city manager & library director & the VP on the board.  During the discussion, I was remembering the O pains I had on Saturday and thought "boy would it be nice to find out I'm pregnant with twins. No one would expect me to continue as president (or even on the board) if I'm having twins."

(People would likely understand if I resigned even if pregnant w 1 baby but I've served on the board while I had my two boys - and I know I could handle being president of the board if I had 1 baby.)

I should note that I'd welcome multiples no matter what.  It just may be even more welcome right now. lol

Amen! Last week I had four follicles 14mm and up a couple days before my IUI and I keep thinking if I have two or more babies as a result I would be happy but also done lol.

I don't know that my life is stressful, but ivf is a pain in the butt, both figuratively and literally. I went in declaring I wanted a singleton pregnancy...but as we started with the process and with all the crazy emotional roller coaster, I wished for twins. I feel a lot of people going through infertility feel this way, despite the risk of multiples. You just don't want to go through the process again!
