IRISH TWINS

1.Was this planned or did it come as a shock? 
This came as a complete shock to me! We had always wanted at least 1 more child however I didn't expect to get pregnant only 3 months after having a baby. I was taking the mini pill religiously and I guess I must have been in the 2% that aren't covered.

2. How was your pregnancy? Did you have any complications in either pregnancy? 
Both my IT pregnancies were fine other than SPD and PGP. In IT2's pregnancy, I didn't even get morning sickness! Bonus!

3. What number pregnancy were your Irish twins? 
2 and 3

4. Do you want any more children? 
We're done now. We have 3 gorgeous girls that are close in age. I wouldn't want another any time soon however I also don't think I would want one on their own in 10 years time.

5. Do you think there is any stigma to having children so close in age? 
Most definitely! Especially with me being a younger mum, I do often get stared at in the street by total strangers.

6. Would you say you're a strict or laid back parent? 
I'm quite a laid back parent however my OH is more of a strict parent which makes us a perfect combination in my opinion.

7. What piece of advice would you give someone who is expecting their youngest Irish twin? 
Don't worry. It's not as hard as people try and make out.

8. Have you ever had any rude comments from a family member or friend? If so, what? 
I keep getting comments passed that there'll be another baby here next year because noone believes that R is our last.
I can't say what the future holds but at this moment in time, another baby is not on the horizon!

9. Have you ever had any rude comments from a stranger? If so, what? 
Nothing too bad. I often get people walk in the street and make the comment "You've got your hands full" however I don't feel they mean this in a rude way.

10. Have you ever had any nice comments from a stranger? If so, what? 
I have been praised for having 3 polite, happy, friendly daughters (or at least the 2 that are old enough). I have also been called "Wonder Woman" a few times!

11. Would you say the close age gap was easier or harder than a bigger age gap? 
I have a 2 year age gap and a 1 year age gap and currently, the 1 year age gap is easier than the 2 year age gap.

12. Any final advice? 
You'll survive! That's what you're built for!

    1. I think it's just something everyone seems to say.
      Today I've had 4 people ask me if my 15 month old and my 3 month old are twins though so I'm not even sure people actually look when they say things :)

      Thank you!
