    Yup definitely rest as much as you can for now. Hopefully they cab give you some options to get a little active if you can't resume normal activity. It's crazy that its so good and yuck there it is sooo freaking hot here! I've been pretty nauseous these past few days and feel so bad I'm being such a lazy mummy. Lots of book reading and puzzles. My poor boy is itchy to get out and go swimming or run around outside but it is too hot! Might try to get over to mum and Dads this afternoon for a swim before we get cabin fever!

    Can't wait till Thursday. Will be great to have a EDD, and I turn 30 on Friday so have a busy week after that. Hoping its good news so we can celebrate together!

    Finally heard from the midwife. I only ended up getting one hcg done and it was 900, at about 4 weeks 4 days (give or take). Had a quick google straight away to check and seems to be normal. Phew. 3 sleeps till our scan. I can't wait to get past that hurdle, then will book an actual appointment with the midwives and start our care. Pleeeeeease be it

    Glad you got your numbers back and they look good! I am also anxious for my scan later this week. Had minor bleeding again yesterday and today, which isn't anything to be alarmed by, but discouraging nonetheless. I also totally tweaked my back today carrying DS around too much. It's just impossible not to lift your toddler! It's nap time so I'm laying on a heating pad/icing it.

    Bleeding is never a comforting g thing to see even when we know the likely cause. Hopefully it means the hematoma will have resolved or be heading that way!

    You're right its impossible to not lift your toddler. Even if its just in and out of bed/highchair/car etc its still a lot of lifting for the day. Hope your back comes right quickly!

    Scan in the morning. Feeling OK about it, have been pretty nauseous and had a few of my other symptoms. Will be great to see a heartbeat and get an EDD. I won't feel truly secure until after my 9 week scan or maybe not even then but hoping I can relax a little. Have felt much more relaxed this past week even with the niggling back pain and cramps. Just trying to remind myself that whatever will be will be and worrying about it won't change that. Will update after my scab and look forward to your update after yours xxx

    Had our scan today. It went OK, we found out that it is twins! We are freaking out a bit haha. We did see two heartbeats but they were measuring 6w1d and 6w where as I thought we were more like 6w4d so that's a bit of a worry. One also had a slower heart Raye and the sac was a bit smaller bit she said that doesn't necessarily mean anything. Now that I know they both are in there I'm terrified of losing one or both. We go back in two weeks to check growth and viability. It just doesn't seem real.

    How did you get on?

    Omg TWINS! That's so exciting. DH is an identical twin and it's such a special relationship. Can't wait for you next scan. I bet your symptoms will start to ramp up if there's two in there!

    I had my ultrasound yesterday. Baby had grown appropriately since last scan and heartbeat was strong. Hematoma is unfortunately still there and actually a bit bigger. I go back on Wednesday for my first official prenatal appointment with my doctor. The nurse practitioner did give me the okay to try some light low impact exercise. She said to just watch for any bleeding increase. I'll give it a go this weekend. We're expecting a snow storm tonight so will likely be stuck inside.

    It's exciting but I'm a but freaked out! I want them both to be OK and male of but the reality of two newborns is pretty scary! We will be fine though. Hope they've grown and things are looking good in two weeks.

    My husband has identical twin brothers, they don't get along though. Most twins seem super close though.

    Glad baby is growing well and appears strong. That sicks the hematoma appears to have gotten a bit bigger. Will they keep a closer eye on you because of it?

    I'm not sure if they will. Up until now I've just been seen by the ultrasound sonographer and a nurse practitioner. On Wednesday when I see my OB, I imagine I'll know a bit more. I hate to complain, but it's just such a bummer to have to stay some sedentary. Between the bleeding and my back going out, I feel like a slug. And the fact that it's the dead of winter doesn't help as I can't even get out for fresh air. We got like 8 inches of snow here!

    Could they tell if babies were identical or fraternal at this point?! Eek! So excited for you.

    Will be good to talk to your OB and see what they think. I don't blame you for getting frustrated, the weather won't be helping at all. My mood is always lower in winter, it sucks being cooped up and we don't even get snow!

    They're separate so most likely fraternal, I'm happy they're in separated sacs as thats the least risky type. I'm getting really excited now. I just hope everything goes OK. The fact they were measuring behind has me a little worried but trying to remind myself that I'm not 100 percent on O date and there is a margin of error with these things... Fingers crossed. I feel like absolute crap so that's reassuring haha.

    We told my in laws today. They're thrilled after having twins themselves, I thought my FIL would have some negative comments about how hard it is/will be but they were super positive. We are only telling our parents at this stage and surprising everyone else later.

    Agreed. And I've already gained 5 pounds... I only weigh 110 so 5 pounds is kind of a lot. I just feel like a big old slug! I did try out the elliptical for 30 minutes today. I was huffing and puffing but haven't seen any bleeding so hope I'm okay!

    I am literally so excited for you! How wonderful that you shared the news with your in-laws. I actually haven't told ours yet-- we're waiting for our appointment on Wednesday. My parents have known for a few weeks and DH's twin brother and wife know.

    We're away for a few days and had a busy day yesterday walking a lot. I knew I was pishing myself too hard and this morning I had some bright red blood mixed in with mucousy cm. I'm so upset. It feels like exactly what happened last time. Mucousy blood every time I did too much. Trying to get in for a scan tomorrow. I don't want to have scans every 5 seconds but I'm so anxious. I'm especially worried that there will be no reassurance as last time everything was perfect till it wasn't. I feel sick. O need both these babies to be ok

    Oy, I'm just reading this. So stressful, I'm sorry. Were you able to get in for a scan? Please keep me posted.

    Hi! Yes had a scan this morning. All good. Babies have caught up to what I thought I was so measuring 7w4d today. Exactly on track for when I thought I ovulated. Good heart rates. 140 something and 150 something. She said there might be some bleeding but wasn't sure. Finished by saying they'll either stick or they won't which was lovely.... Pft. She said for now they look beautiful though. I'm hopeful bit nervous still. Taking it easy, midwife on the 5th then will get another scan between 9 and 10 weeks. Keeping my fingers crossed. How are you?

    Oh good! But what a weird/insensitive statement! Was that the midwife doing the scan? Nice that you'll get another in a few weeks.

    I was back at the doctor today. They gave me official due date of September 5, so I think only a few days off from you. Baby looked good. Hematoma seems to have gotten smaller and she was confident it would absorb into pregnancy. She doesn't want to keep monitoring it and even okayed me exercising again.

    Next step now is scheduling chromosomal testing and don't think I'll have another scan until 12 weeks. Seems like a ways away considering I've already had 3...!

    No we go to specialist ultrasound places so was the radiographer. You strike the odd strange one. In my last pregnancy one told me to come back the following week if i was still having bleeding as 'everything can be fine one day and not the next'. So lovely haha as of you don't already know that! Hearing it is so not helpful!

    Glad the hematoma appears to be shrinking, excellent that she thinks it is a non issue and you can get back to normal.

    What kind of testing do you get done? We have a blood test and the 12 week nuchal scan but the blood test isn't anywhere near as thorough as the NIPT tests you guys are offered. Will you be finding out the gender?

    I'll do the NIPT test. Thankfully we have really good insurance and it won't be outrageously expensive. I actually did it with DS when it was brand new. We also do the 12-week nuchal scan to follow up on the blood work.

    I don't find out the gender! I feel like there are very few people on these boards who don't, so I'm in the minority. We didn't find out with DS and it works for us. It's definitely tempting to find out, but I found the temptation wore off the more pregnant I got. It made labor very motivating and was a very fun surprise. I do feel like if I were having twins I might find out though, because there'd just be so much planning involved. Haha. Will you find out?

    Haha go you! I know a hand full of people who don't find out. It is really exciting I have a cousin who is a good friend having a baby next month and she doesn't know, definitely adds to the excitement!

    We will find out. We did with our son too, I'm impatient haha. We always thought if we had a girl next and went for number 3 wed leave that one a surprise as we would already have one of each. If this works out though we won't be having any more. It dawned on me the other day that I will never get to do the surprise thing. Don't think I can wait though! We are also planning on doing a cheesy gender reveal where we surprise everyone with the fact that its twins.

    How are you doing?! Sorry I've been MIA. DS turned 2 today! And we're having a MAJOR cold spell here.... it will be colder here than in Antarctica tomorrow. We're projected to break records. Going to be a LONG few days. Thankfully DH is working from home.

    Hi! Wow 2 how are you feeling about that? We're a few months of 2 and I can't believe it. Its gone so fast! Is your boy becoming very headstrong and testing the boundaries like mine!? Haha he is testing the limits in big ways at the moment. Hello terrible twos! Neat seeing his personality come out though.

    Wow that sounds freezing. Must be hard being stuck inside with conditions like that, we've been inside a bit too but for the opposite reason. We ate going through a heat wave and it is so unbearable. Record highs here after a relatively mild summer. We did get out to The beach yesterday which was so nice! Sleeping has been a challenge and I'm hoping that's just from the heat although in reality I can't remember the last time he slept through. On top of nighttime bathroom visits and insomnia in exhausted!

    Have been pretty nauseas with the odd good day here and there its comforting but hard. Hoping mum can have DS one night so I can get some rest! Midwife next Tuesday. Excited to get The ball rolling.

    How are you? I trust that the quiet time means the pregnancy has been uneventful for the last few days (yay).

    Keep warm!

    Yes, agreed on 2! He is definitely starting to be more defiant. He's generally very physical and active. It's funny because he was the most chill infant and very late to meet many of his gross motor milestones for the first 18 months. He has certainly changed! His language is also exploding more and more everyday so it's pretty cool to see. He's quite the little man! When is your son's birthday?

    Literally an hour after I posted on Tuesday, DS started vomiting. Then yesterday I got it. It's been quite a 48 hours over here! Glad that the stomach flu and the super cold temps seem to be behind us, yikes. We also suffered a frozen pipe which sent dirty laundry water flying all over this morning. I sure could use a big glass of wine... alas!

    All has been quiet on the pregnancy front. No bleeding for over a week no, so that's wonderful. Obviously still lots of nerves as I won't be back at the doctors now for a few more weeks. So no new updates. Just have to pray that all continues to develop.

    Hope you're doing well!
