Last night, after puking up some baby carrots and red pepper strips and a calcium chew, I dreamed that I had a little girl, and that she was so tiny I could hold her in my jacket and nobody even knew she was there. I would look down every once in a while to check in on her.

On one of those check-ins, the day after she was born, it had been a while since I had nursed her, and she looked up at me, and said:

"I am SO hungry!"

As Ty said, "A chip off the old block."

So according to everything scientific that I've read and heard, at least one of the tortellinis is a girl! (i.e. what you dream is what you get, but as I said to someone else I dreamed Madeleine was a midget and Quinn was a piglet in Mork suspenders - repeatedly).

So sorry you're losing your lunch and calcium chews, Sweetheart. I wonder if many that are pregnant with multiples escape the wrath of sickness, considering you're probably beset with double hormones. I've heard that baby girls make you sicker because of the added progesterone and that boys make you sicker because your system doesn't agree with the testosterone. For what it's worth, I was sicker with a boy than with a girl. And do you know yet if they're fraternal or identical?

Oh, pregnancy dreams are wild. I'm sorry you're still sick though...

When one of my good friends was pregnant she dreamt she gave birth to a baby dragon and it followed her around everywhere calling her Mama.

Ugh. Sorry about the puking. I love your dream about your twee little talking baby and I've been living on baby carrots too.

Pregnancy dreams are pretty vivid, aren't they?

A little while back, I dreamed that I was pregnant with twins (I already knew I was), and that I gave birth to one of them, and it was a small white dog, and I was still pregnant with the other, and was tired, so I had to sit down while shopping, and I held the dog on my lap. The store owner came up to me and said that I couldn't bring dogs into the store, and I said, "It's ok; it's my baby. And I'm pregnant, so I have to sit here and rest right now." Made perfect sense at the time.

As for the fraternal/identical issue, we can't tell for sure yet, but we do have two separate sacs, which may indicate fraternal. Personally, I suspect they're fraternal. And quite spirited.

Let the baby anxiety dreams begin! You know the hormones have taken hold when you dreams about forgetting how to care for a baby.

After the babies are born, you can re-create that dream by tucking one of them into a Baby Bjorn and zipping your jacket around them!

My favorite of the many baby dreams I had while pregnant with my daughter was one in which I gave birth to a litter of tiny white rabbits.

Congrats on the twins, and so sorry about the barfing, bruising, and oozing!
