I've reached the 2nd trimester Yippee!! Just wanted to say hi!
I'm a first time mum to be to twins
I've been longing to get past the first trimester for some reassurance. I know everyone told me it was the riskiest. I'm 14 weeks today. We had our first scan last week and saw our two bouncing babies on the screen - we were gobsmacked as there are no twins in the family and we've had no fertility treatment etc. I think we are finally starting to get our head around it now and are really excited. Been looking at twin buggies, and measuring the spare bedroom to see if two cots would fit!
I've got a question - is it normal to have started feeling period type pains again? Like in the early days? Its nowhere near strong enough to need painkillers. I've just put it down to there being two babies inside me and everything stretching and growing - i'm really getting a baby bump now!
Hi and welcome! I still get the AF-like stretching pains, it's nothing to worry about, your uterus is still growing and staring to push other things out of the way I'm still getting them fairly frequently.
