I know until 12 weeks they were approached about selective reduction. They considered it. I don't know if I would be mad, but it would be a very difficult thing for me to accept at first. Twins sound fun and I love watching the triplets, but the thought of two newborns at the same time living with me.....terrifying.

I was not happy when I find out I was pregnant with twins. I was terrified and overwhelmed. I would cry a lot during my pregnancy wondering how the hell we were going to make it work. The first 1.5 years of them being born was absolute hell. Of course I wouldn't change things but to say I was unhappy would be an understatement.

See after they turned 2 it seems like it would be fun. 2 newborns sounds awful though. At least until you got them on a schedule.

I can understand the feeling shocked, and overwhelmed at the thought of twins but I think being pissed is a bit ridiculous. As other posters have said they were most likely made aware of the chances of conceiving multiples. If they didn't want multiples well they shouldn't have done IVF.
