Hi Fizzyfefe,

My due date is November 15, but my OB said they wouldn't let me go past 38 weeks. I have three older children at home, so it was quite a shock when we found out we were having twins!

Are yours identical or fraternal? (Mine are fraternal).

Congratulations!

My twins are due 21st September, and like lejna I have three older kids. We'll have fun times at home later this year!

I'm due in October but would love bump buddies too! We're all not too far from one another.

Hi girls, nice to meet you all! I'm pregnant with di-di, although I don't know if they're identical or fraternal. All I know is that I ovulated from the left side.

How are you all feeling? When are your next ultrasounds? Have you guys had any problems so far?

fizzy - I'm having di-di too! I have boy/girl. I'm guessing you don't know the gender yet? I'm feeling pretty emotional but not much else. I had a pretty easy first trimester too. Week 8 I had a little bit of nausea and then it came back at week 11 but I never actually got sick. I'm grateful and not complaining although it would have been nice to have some more symptoms to know I was still pregnant! I also experienced bleeding from about 6 weeks until 7.5. It was really scary but I was on progesterone suppositories so that might have been what was causing the bleeding. They were never able to find the reason for the bleeding. Since then its been pretty smooth sailing for me. I have my next ultrasound with my OB on the 10th of May and then I meet with the MFM May 25th and then at some point in June (I can't remember the June date right now).

How are you all doing?

Hello!

I'm expecting twins, due at the end of October. We're having fraternal twins Twins run in my family, my mum is a twin so even though it was a surprise, I did have the thought of twins in the back of my head. I also have a little boy who is 4 next month and i am worried about how much harder it's going to be. Anyone else terrified?

No, I don't think we find out the sexes until my 16 week ultrasound. I'm surprised you know already, ashknowsbest! I didn't think you could tell until 16 - 20 weeks. That's so exciting. I'm secretly hoping for at least one girl, as this may very well be my last pregnancy, but as long as they're healthy, I really can't complain.

Lollipopbob, I think the word "terrified" just about covers it! That's exactly how I feel. I figured we'd have some time between babies 2 and 3. Not just that, but I've had bleeding so often that I'm terrified of going to an appointment an they tell me that something is wrong.

Do you ladies have family nearby to help? Do you have any other children, or are the twins your first/second? How are your partners coping?

fizzy - we know because we did genetic testing on our embryos before we put them back. We normally wouldn't be able to find out until 18-20 weeks like everyone else but since we paid the $7,000 we got a little bonus

I agree with you on the babies be healthy, genders don't matter. I'm pleased with the outcome but whatever their genders, I just really want healthy happy babies. This will be my first and last pregnancy unless I fall pregnant naturally which at this point is nearly impossible. We will see though. Hubby and I will not be using protection after these little ones are born so ...

We have no family nearby but we do have close friends that are a pretty good support system. These are my first children, DH has a son from a previous marriage but they're estranged so he's not a part of our daily life (although we would like him to be). My hubby is loving it! He finds my belly so attractive and has been very loving. I have mood swings which he doesn't love but we are both really excited. I think hubby is terrified and I have this naive view of what's it's like to have children since i've never had them. I will freak out when they get here I'm sure but for right now I don't feel nervous/terrified, just excited!

What about your hubby? I know it must be difficult for some men just having one baby due in general. We at least have the symptoms and our bodies are growing. Nothing is really going on for them yet.

Have any of you started buying things for the LOs?

Lollipop, my little man will be 4 in July, and I'm definitely worrying about how he'll react to the babies. He's a really snuggly mama's boy and I'd hate for him to feel pushed out.

I had a very easy pregnancy until about 12 weeks, then instead of fading the vomiting really ramped up. Still suffering and feeling miserable. Hope you all have a much easier time.
