"I know for Brie and I, we both we're terrified," Nikki admitted. "Because even early on in my pregnancy, I got Influenza B, and I never have gotten the flu. It was terrifying and it was terrible. I remember telling Brie that I would rather break my neck again than ever get the flu."
"And now that this is happening, I just know, just even being pregnant our systems are lower. We can catch things a lot easier," she added. "And I just encourage people, if you are sick, stay at home."
Despite their health concerns, Nikki and Brie are thrilled to be expecting at the same time, an exciting announcement that they shared in January after learning of their baby news two days apart.
"We both were definitely shocked. You know, I think being identical twins and then being reality stars, there's always this perception of, 'Oh they did it for another season,'" Nikki said. "And there's all these rumors of IVF and all this crazy stuff. We didn’t have any of that."
"Brie literally, her heart was set on just having one baby," she continued. "I had just found out that I had PCOS [Polycystic Ovary Syndrome]; I had like no estrogen in my body. They were like, 'You need to freeze your eggs because the day you want to get pregnant, you're going to need help.' And I was like, 'Oh my gosh. I can't believe I'm there. That's crazy.'"
Brie even predicted that she and Nikki's water will "break on the same day."
"I feel like we are having twins," Brie joked.
In fact, the twin feeling even continued into Nikki and Brie's ultrasounds. "We were talking on the phone and we shared each other's ultrasounds [and] our babies have the same profile," Nikki revealed.
