In the past years, multiple births have been multiplying at a fast rate. In the U. S in , only In , 33,9 sets of twins were born per 1, births, according to a report on birth data. When it comes to having twins, not all regions are equal. Central Africa holds the top for the highest twin birth rate, while Asia and Latin America have much lower rates of twin births, according to an international study.
It was a first for me—being in bed with two men at the same time. Well, let me clarify that—one was the Tall Man, my vertically blessed, handsome, and loving husband, and the other was Little Man—my lovely, lanky baby with blonde hair and a smile so big and bright it could light up a room. Nuzzling my head into the area of little baby chub folds on his neck I listened to his breathing, and curled in closer to his tiny body. Most nights, the twins slept in their nursery. Bun-Bun preferred her space but Little Man loved being in bed with us, sprawling out width-wise until Luke and I were literally falling off our respective sides of the bed. Before kids, we were always a pretty passionate couple. When we first met in graduate school there was a spark.
I haven't had my twins yet but have 3 older children and have been married 11 years. I felt the same way for the first few months after each baby! The time and love required for new babies out weighs personal needs Physical touch is much more powerful than verbal, so even snuggling up in bed the 20 minutes you get between feedings may help! Good luck.
