Couple regrets conceiving twins
A husband and wife fear twins will ‘ruin’ their family.
After struggling to get pregnant for nearly two years, a couple recently discovered they’re having twins via in vitro fertilization. You might think they’re excited or elated, but you’d be wrong. The words they’ve chosen instead:
“We're [mad]. And terrified, and angry, and guilty, and regretful."

The anonymous couple recently wrote about their reaction to having twins on Babble.com, where they lamented their fears and frustrations:
“I’m trying not to be so bitter and embrace what’s ahead of us. It’s possible these kids will sleep at some point, I suppose. In the meantime, I’ve promised to stop referring to one of the boys as ‘extra’ and have told my wife I will try to refrain from calling my first-born son ‘the free one.’”
Lack of sleep and strained finances are just a couple of hurdles the couple dreads. In the wife’s post, she acknowledges that her feelings aren’t popular, but reassures readers that she loves her son and is sure she’ll love his brothers equally.
“But for now, I’m having trouble seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.”
