Great Idea Pink!! Glad your doing well, I bet it must be nerve wracking with 2, I have been bad enough with 1 on board! We don't want to find out the sex, This will be our only baby so we would like to have a surprise, but I think if we were having twins we might contemplate finding out, as I think your right you need to be a bit more prepared, I can't wait until we can start getting everything we need for our baby xx
Hi ladies!! Goo idea starting this thread! glad you two are doing well!
Like pink, since we are having twins we will be finding out the genders of ours. I have my next OB appt on December 13, and will be 17w2d then, so hoping they can give us some idea even if its not 100%.
MrsH, we were planning on waiting too until we found out it was twins!! I think that will be so cool to be surprised in the delivery room!
Hey... I agree tlm finding out in the delivery room would be cool! but i just can't with 2... i like to be organised and actually even though i always said i wouldn't find out i'm wondering whether I would have been able to hold out if I was only have 1
How's the MS? has it stopped for both of you?
Have you bought anything significant for the baby(ies) yet?
MS is pretty much gone, thank god.. still have slight moments where I think Ooo i don't feel great.. strangely tuesdays seem to be a sick day for me each week.
Haven't had any real cravings, although i'm enjoying mashed potato (yum )
Haven't bought anything yet really, waiting till after the scan (i'm a bit superstitious about buying too much too early) ... however i scared myself the other day by reading on a twin website that you should have some things ready by 26weeks incase they come early... and i thought crikey we've done nothing!!!
Well TLM your not too fa behind me!!
I haven't really had m/s just some smells make me sick and I felt sick all the time, no cravings either, In the early weeks I like rice and I liked lemons, but I wouldn't really say a craving more of a fancy, I haven't got anything yet, a friend of mine brought us a pair of mittens which were the cutest thing I have ever seen, but with my bleeding I have been very cautious too, I am going to wait until January which will still give me 3 and a bit months to get prepared and if worse comes to worse there is always the internet with home delivery!! I have invested in a doppler though so I can listen in on babies heart beat which has been very good during the times I have been bleeding, but I was wary about getting that too. I had my 20 week scan through yesterday and it's a week before Xmas, I am hoping that getting to 20 weeks will make me less worried, I get the odd few decent kicks atm, but I can't wait until I can feel the baby move all the time. So Lovely to see that your both doing well, especially as you have double trouble on board, but you definitely need to be a bit more prepared you might have one of each xxx
My ms is still there, literally now at its worst in the mornings so I have been taking zofran a couple of hours before I get out of bed and that's seems to work! I don't like taking it, but it literally is the difference between night and day in how I feel! I am hoping that I will start feeling better and not need it soon!
Other than the odd outfit we have bought nothing, like you guys I am pretty superstitious! And because it took us so long to Ttc and we had to do IVF and we are havibg twins, I think I am extra cautious! Pink, I have heard the same thing about being prepared early. It scares me! I am going to ask at my next OB appt because I am such the planner and have already thought about when to have the shower. I am more worries about being on bed rest and not being able to have a shower. So I have heard that having your shower around 25/26 weeks is good! And that would be nice because then you would find out what you still have to buy. DH and I have looked at Babies R Us and sort of picked out what we like buy have not officially registered yet! I know he looks at all that stud and thinks "do we need it all!?" Lol! We found a crib set that we really like, but the down side is that it's almost $500 a piece!
Not too many cravings here either! I was very much looking forward to apple pie at Thanksgiving though! I definitely have been in ruts where I will eat one thing for a while but it's because it was the only thing that sounded good and I could keep down, Gatorade and macaroni and cheese! Lol!!
im also having twins. didnt wanna find out but../ i scan the boogers all the time so... the boy decided i needed to know. turns out to be one of each. most of the stuff ive gotten has been given to me (cousins, friends etc) as hand me downs. bought car seats and a new car. just finished painting the room yesterday (did 1 wall about a month ago then got lazy again). got my friends scooter out of my garage so now i have a bit more space for the baby stuff they wont need fora long time (a cute kids car etc). joined a twins group and they have given me a ton of the stuff you dont need for long (2 exersaucers, a bouncy chair etc)
i didnt really have any ms. just getting tired and big now. im doing a baby shower dec 16 when ill be 28 1/2 weeks.
Hi everyone! Baby is doing well, starting to feel big - little scared how much worse it will get, lol! We are also leaving gender for delivery. We have almost finished our registry and have been given a few donations, however we have bought very little. DH is still unemployed so not knowing gender has been great because you can't buy too much when you don't know. Our shower is on January 27th, I will be 30 weeks.
Ha Pink your babies room sounds like our baby we have our new kitchen in there at the moment, and also dry my washing in there, just until we get our tumble dryer for the utility room which is nearly finished!!
So nice to hear how the rest of you IVF ladies are doing, Drsquid one of each that is just perfect, I forgot there were so many twin pregnancies in here, I was on an English website which is very similar to this and no-one has had twins and 3 of them have had failed IVF's, so I think we have done very well her, must be a lucky group.
You USA girls are very lucky to have baby showers, it's not really something that is done over here, we just get lots of gifts after that baby is born!! So so lovely to hear from you all, I find being in contact with people who have had to have IVF and been through the heart break of infertility to achieve their miracles much more comforting, I find that ITRW people don't tend to understand how precious these babies are, and I know for me it was my only chance of ever having a baby, and you girls understand that xXx
