Co-sleeping twins?

For those of you that are parents of twins what type of sleeping arrangement did your twins have? Did they sleep together in a crib or bassinet? If so, for how long? Would you recommend buying 2 cribs right away? Thanks in advance for any advice!

Co-sleeping twins?

For those of you having twins, do you plan on having them sleep together or separate? Are you buying 2 cribs right away or waiting? Are you going to purchase separate bassinets? Looking for some advice.

What is everyone's opinion about the swine flu vaccine? For those of you that will be pregnant during flu season, do you plan on getting the vaccine?

Too early. I wouldn't do it. You may even have some HCG left in your system from the trigger injection which may give you a false +. Or it is just too early and will be negative and who wants that stress?

I've heard that eating lots of fresh pineapple helps implantation, I believe it is the bromelain, which is an enzyme in the pineapple. Apparently there is more bromelain in the core..so eat that too. Who knows, but I ate a lot of it after our transfer and now I'm prego with twins!

Giving your own IM injection

Hi there,

My husband is leaving town 10 days prior to the end of my progesterone protocol. I have no one else to give me these shots and I'm going to try and give the shot to myself. Has anyone done this before and how did it go?

Thanks!
