Fizzy - Glad you agree haha! I don't have a lot of family around on my side but my OH's family are lovely and I think will be very helpful which makes me feel better about coping. I don't know the gender yet but secretly would love one to be a girl too Although, my son has requested "Only boys!!"

Ash - I haven't bought one thing for the babies which is pretty shocking as I had everything bought, prepared and ready by 6 months with my DS so feeling pretty unprepared but I think I'll get in to it once we know what we're having.

invivo - That's how I'm feeling. My little boy is my world and he is very cuddly too but he is very excited at the thought of the babies so i'm hoping it'll fall in to place nicely. I'm happy that i'll be on maternity for his first year of school too!
My sickness has been rubbish, I'm hoping it'll pass soon. (fingers crossed!)

So what does everyone do for work? Are you worrying about working and being huge haha I work in a nursery so I'm already struggling with being on my feet all day, lifting children and working 10 hour days.

Also, any one looked in to double prams? Im liking the look of the oyster max tandem but not that excited at the prospect of pushing around such a bulky pram xx

Lolli - I don't work so I'm not worried so much about getting around at work but I am worried about getting around by myself when hubby isnt home. I'm sure I will manage but I am worried. I'm also worried about driving because I'm sure at some point my belly will be so big I won't be able to reach the pedals and the steering wheel.

As far as a stroller we got the uppababy vista with the bassinets and the car seat attachments.

Pram-wise I like the look of the Contours Options Elite -- won't break the bank and the seats are fully adjustable so that they can face each other. I didn't use the pram much with DS so don't intend to spend a fortune on one if I can help it.

I don't intend on finding out genders either, but I'm hoping for two the same. Everybody else in my family want's one of each, so somebody will be happy no matter what.

Lollipop, you must be struggling at work already! I'm lucky that mine is a desk job, but I work for the emergency services and the late/night shifts are killing me.

I was working retail, but after multiple bleeds, my doctor took me off work. She said I could work a desk job if i wanted, but I much prefer staying home with my son.

I haven't yet bought a stroller. The only thing we have so far are cribs (which my son never even slept in until he was almost a year, so we'll see how that goes). I'm looking for wraps/carriers, too, because if the twins are anything like my son, they won't be put down for a second!

So I'm waiting here at the M-F specialist for our 12 week scan. Very excited!

What countries are you all in? I'm in the US.

Congratulations missy! It is quite a shock, I found out Monday and it's sinking in now

I'm from the UK too

What are everyone's thoughts on sleeping arrangements for the babies? I don't want to get two moses baskets so I'm going to be putting them in the same cot bed to begin with, one at each end.

Thank you .. do you know which twins your having? I don't have another scan now till weeks which seems forever away.. but can imagine how much they will have grew in that time..

How have you been feeling? I haven't thought that far ahead of were they will sleep ect.. maybe their double pram down stairs during the day? And yes seems a good idea just sharing the cot for the first few months? Wow so different to just one baby lol xx

Don't know what we're having yet but finding out in about 6 weeks. I'm so excited! My last scan was good, twin one was sleepy and didn't move around much but twin two was wriggling and moving all around. Was funny to see

I've been feeling sick a lot but it's starting to get better. I can imagine how tiring carrying twins will be towards the end. How is everyone wanting their labour to go? I'd love a natural waterbirth but I don't know how likely that'll be, hoping I'll make it to at least 36 weeks and the babies will be a healthy weight the birth seems a lot more complicated this time!

Yes mine was pretty similar.. one moved around and the other just laid so I think was sleeping lol! I don't know the sexs yet.. I just know Tey are di/di twins.. but I have a feeling 1 pink 1 blue
That's my aim too 36 weeks , with hopefully a natural delivery. As long as they arrive cooked and safe I'm easy thou!! I'm wondering the same thing.. 2 babies, 2 x the strain, does that mean the growth for our insides is double speed? Seen as we accommodating for 2 lol.. xx

As far as sleeping arrangements, I am just going to play it by ear. We have two cribs but (I'm not sure if I mentioned this earlier) my son didn't sleep in his crib until a year, so we'll see how it goes. I've heard that twins prefer to sleep together, and will settle easier in cribs if they're together. I hope that's the case, but only time will tell! With our luck, they will only sleep being held (like my son).

I posted my 12 week scan picture in the Gender Prediction section, and most ladies said one of each! And one person said two girls.

For delivery, I would love a VBAC, but I am not counting on it. Again, will just have to play it by ear. My M-F specialist says most people who have already had a section will either have anther section, or a vaginal birth for baby A and section for baby B.

So I've had more bright red bleeding this morning. I'm feeling so discouraged. Have any of you spotted this pregnancy? I'm so tired and scared of seeing blood.
