I dreamed about reading the newspaper.

It was the newspaper from my parents hometown.

The headline was big, and loud:

TWO SISTERS, THREE SETS OF TWINS.

It was about me and my sister.

My sister is pregnant with twins. I have twins that are almost nine.

The article was about our lives and how I had twins in 1998 and then suffered infertility. My sister found out she was pregnant with twins and amazingly, my infertility just "cleared up" and I got pregnant. And it was even more twins! Twins galore! Twins everywhere! Twins, twins, twins!

In the article there were pictures of my sister and I. We were smiling and happy and holding our babies. She and I were close to each other and helping one another raise our little babies.

Then I woke up.

I reached down to feel my stomach. Not quite flat, but definately not pregnant either.

It was really nice while it lasted. A lot better than that dream I have all the time where my teeth are falling out.








I really miss my sister.

Oh honey, I know this is hard for you since you want to be happy for your sister.

I just wish you didn't have to struggle with it so much.

You dream your teeth are falling out?

That's something new.

Love to you!

Love and hugs...

I sometimes dream that I have loose teeth. My mom says it's because I probably grind my teeth at night. Fabulous!

Anyway, more HUGS. I wish with all my heart that your dream turns out to be a premonition.

Oh man, I'm sorry. I kind of know how you feel. I had my girl & since then 2 miscarriages. Every time someone gets pregnant around me I feel like crying. Then I feel worse because I should be happy dammit! The I feel...well you know.

How far away is your sister from you? Is she really pregnant with twins? I feel like I'm coming in the middle of the story. I'm sorry!

She lives about 500 miles away.

And yes, she's really pregnant with twins. She sent me the ultrasound photo and there is absolutely NO doubt that there are two babies.

Speaking of which, ultrasounds have gotten A LOT better since 1997.
