Have I adjusted to having twins?

That was the first question the doctor asked me today. I am 14 weeks pregnant and my answer was yes. We were a little shaken at first, but now we are ready and excited. He completely changed that in a matter of say 2 minutes. He started by saying the second trimester is a great time in pregnancy and I should enjoy it......BUT I should enjoy it while it lasts because I will not be doing the same things in my third trimester that a typical pregnant woman would do. He dropped that I should get the house ready, take any necessary classes and get the nursery in order sooner rather than later. That completely freaked me out. At that moment I panicked. I sent Neal a text message saying we are getting our nursery furniture today and all of the painting in the house must be done today and I need baby detergent today....well you get the picture. Let's just say Neal said he was tired and wanted to go to be before 7pm. Tired of me asking him to do things. Up until this point he claims I have not been the horrible pregnant lady. I would love to hear what he tells his buddies. I am not that naive.

To take a couple of steps back, we kinda knew we were having twins before our first ultrasound. My beta number was high and was more than doubling every 48 hours. When we first found out we were both excited and scared. I still remember my hands shaking and continually turning to Neal, both of us grinning, and saying Holy S$@!. After a couple of weeks of realizing we can afford this, I thought I was calm.
