Fizzyfefe, you poor thing! I had bright red bleeding (not just spotting) twice in the early weeks, but scan couldn't find any reason for it. Have you talked to your docs since yesterday? Hang in there!

My consultant suggested an elective section, but I vetoed that. If I need to have a section for a solid reason (like placenta praevia or fetal distress or the lie) then that will be fine, but if there's no good reason then I'm not having it.

I had one lazy baby and one very active one too. My suspicion is that I'm having a boy (lazy) and girl (active), but I'm not very good at predicting.

Sleep-wise I've always co-slept with my new babies, but I don't know how that will work with twins. My plan right now is to get a co-sleeper and rotate, but we'll see how that works out. I find that these things usually fall into place when the time comes.

Lollipop, glad to hear you're feeling much less sick. It's a massive relief when that happens. I'm starting to feel a whole lot of movement and it's making all of the misery seem worthwhile.

Fizzy -
Have you spoke to the Doctor about the bleeding? Hopefully they can put your mind at rest that it's normal.

Invivo - I've started to feel a little bit of movement which is a lot sooner than my last pregnancy. Not sure if it's because this is my second pregnancy or because its twins. Can't wait until OH can feel the kicks too! xx

Thanks for your messages, ladies. I had an appointment today and she couldn't find a reason for the bleed. Both babies and heartbeats were perfect. My cervix is long and closed. She has me on pelvic rest and says if it happens again, she will make a same-day appointment with my M-F specialist to get a detailed ultrasound. She says it is most likely another subchorionic hematoma, but it's not a concern because the bleeding has turned brown and slowed.

How soon did you all feel movement? I've been feeling pops and flutters for two weeks now.

Same here fizzy. I've been feeling something since around 11 weeks which is early. How's everyone feeling? My sickness is becoming rare now which is lovely but I'm so tired! I can't seem to get through the day without a nap unless I'm at work. Pretty helpful working at a nursery right now as since telling parents I'm expecting twins, I'm being offered lots of clothes and stuff haha which is helpful

My nausea has definitely improved, although evening time is still not completely nausea-free. That's great you're getting offers for clothes! When I first had Hunter, I had a friend who gave us all of her son's old clothes (since they were only having one baby and he was a few months older than Hunter).

So I have an appointment again tomorrow with my OB. I'm still spotting. I expect that she will book me an appointment with my M-F specialist some time this week for a more detailed ultrasound. I hope the twins are okay. it's really getting me down to have so much blood so often.

Good luck with your appointment today fizzy! Let us know how it goes. Sending all positive vibes.

I had my 16 week appointment today. It was a short ultrasound but the babies are doing great! They're growing and thriving. I couldn't be happier. Our little boys heart rate was 164 and our little girls was 150. She is ahead of him in growth so I'm not surprised. What I was surprised by was the fact that I'm 16 weeks pregnant but my uterus is measuring 25 weeks! I'm not shocked ... I knew that twin pregnancies measure ahead but wow ... 9 weeks ahead. That's crazy! I knew this week I started to feel like I wasn't breathing the same .. now I know why. Anyone know what they're measuring yet?

Also ... anyone not sleeping good anymore? I think at most I'm getting approx. 4 hours of sleep/night. Between peeing every 2 hours, and just waking up to toss and turn every hour I really am not getting enough sleep. Anyone having this problem already and have you found any solutions? I would love to get some quality sleep!

My sleep has been rubbish too Ash. Just can't get comfy. I like sleeping on my stomach which is too uncomfortable now. I've heard good things about pregnancy pillows so might look in to that.

Good to hear your appointment went well and your babies are doing good! I've got my 16 week appointment tomorrow and hoping to hear the heart beats for the first time Counting down the days until the next scan too. xoxo

Thanks, girls. I'm still bleeding, a mixture of brown and red, but the babies are healthy and no one can tell me why. I've also just gotten over a weekend bug, too - felt like I was dying with a fever, chills, vomiting - ugh! It's been so rough. My next appointment is Tuesday with the M-F specialist and I'm going to ask them to please double-check for any signs of hematomas or ANYTHING that can be causing this much bleeding.

Ash, my doctor hasn't done any fundal checks. My last OB did them every time, but I've been reading lots of stories about OBs not doing them anymore because of the inaccuracies, whether they be singleton pregnancies or otherwise. Can you feel your fundus? I'm always poking around at my belly.

Sorry, I have no advice for sleeping through the night because I'm a horrible sleeper, even when not pregnant. I wake up fully every time I have to roll over, or I hear a noise, or I have to pee. Earplugs help when hubby snores, for sure! But I'm such a light sleeper that I hear my son on the monitor before hubby, even with the plugs in.

Lolli, good luck! Hope all goes well. I can't believe you haven't heard their heartbeats yet! My OB checks for heartbeats at every appointment. It truly is a magical sound.
