Can you feel them?

One of the more frequent questions I have been getting from folks is whether I can feel each baby individually.  The short answer is yes, but I would never know just from the feeling that there are two babies in there.  I think some women have said they can tell them apart, but in my personal experience, it just feels like one active baby.  If I didn’t have the ultrasounds to prove it to myself, I would totally think there is only one.  I mean I feel movement in various places, but that was the same with Carter too.  I swear Carter could dart from one side to the other so fast.  I would totally think that this baby is the exact same way, except that I know it’s not one baby, but two.  Yay for ultrasounds!  The thought of twins is still surreal to me, so the thought of getting to the hospital and having one more pop out unexpectedly is just insane.  I really have no idea how people deal with that.  Thanks to my docs for giving us advance warning, I am so glad I have time to mentally prep myself for what’s about to come.
