Then came the part where the nurse weighs me. Let's just say I'm glad I went to the bathroom twice before she weighed me. I gained 8 pounds in 4 weeks for a total weight gain of 17 pounds in 5 months. I didn't realize how emotional this would make me but I kept sniffling all the way back to the examining room. The nurse was like, "You're pregnant with twins! You're tiny!" People really like to tell you what you look like when you're pregnant.
Yesterday I was at Crate and Barrel with my friend who was picking up all the supplies for her custom Elfa closet. The man asked me if I was interested in a closet. I told him we already had an Elfa closet because we're super fabulous. He then noticed that we were both pregnant. My friend smiled proudly and said, "Yeah, She's pregnant with twins!" He said twins run in his family and his daughter has a good chance of having twins. I said in earnest, "That's great! She's so lucky!" The man responded, "Yeah, we'll see how you feel in a year." Now I HATE when people tell me what I'm going to feel like so I retorted, "Well, that's why we have the fabulous Elfa storage system-to put our two kids in when they piss me off." Then I smiled politely and walked away from the counter. I hope his daughter has quintuplets.

To be honest the Burka was getting a little itchy and hot so I asked if there was anything I could do about the acne that has completely taken over my face. The doctor asked me if I'd heard of Benzoyl Peroxide. All I could think was, "Jeez, this is going to be about as helpful as Tylenol." I put my hood back on and told him to send me the bill.
