In fact, our due dates are exactly a week apart!
I hadn’t shared this yet, but it’s awesome and makes me laugh at the same time. You see, our first little girls are both born in May 2008, too. How weird is that? And we didn’t know each other back then so it was so not planned.
But then this time it wasn’t planned, either… although we both started talking about wanting more kids at about the same time. And, naturally, we talked about it to each other. Next thing we know? “I’m pregnant!” “I’m pregnant!” (She found out first.)
I have to say that it is FUN being pregnant at the same time as a really good friend. We’ve gone shopping for maternity clothes together and talked together incessantly about baby names, how it feels to be pregnant again, and how well our husbands and little girls are handling everything. We’ve empathized with each other about morning sickness, having no energy, and mood swings. It’s been so nice to have someone you are close to know exactly what you’re going through when you’re going through it.
The only bummer is that we’re not going to have the babies at the same hospital – think of the opportunities! We could carpool to appointments, get our ultrasounds at the same time, and even induce at the same time!
Bet you thought I was serious there. ;-) Actually, I would rather not induce… (please shoot me first). And the idea is kind of a crazy one anyway, though I’m sure it’s been done!
Right now we’re both waiting impatiently for our ultrasounds – the ones that will tell us whether we’re carrying a boy or a girl. We both kind of feel like we’re having girls, but who knows? It would be funny if we both ended up with little girls again. :)
