rali- Congrats on your twins! Just wanted to let you know that the May forum has lots of multiples (twins and triplets), so feel free to jump in!

I would also recommend the book by Dr. Barbara Luke "When You're Expecting Twins, Triplets and Quads....", it's sort of like a bible for us multiple moms to be out there! Get it early on too, it's got a lot of suggestions and recommendations for diet during early pregnancy.

Congratulations!!! Can I butt in for a minute? You said that this book has good recommendations for diet during pregnancy for multiples? Do they expect you to up your calories even more when there is more than 1 baby? We are thinking about going for FET in January. I had Weight Loss Surgery last Feb and they removed 90% of my stomach...and have been cleared to try again. Thing is if we were to get pregnant with multiples, I may be eating non-stop to try and get my calories in. :shock: I can only eat very small amounts at a time before I am full. Just something that I never thought about before...and am curious about now.

Congrats on your twins! My IVF twins will be one year old next Thursday! I love the forums on the website twinstuff.com- it is fantastic and I've learned 90% of my parenting and twin knowledge from there.

Good luck!!

Thank you all for your congrats. I am staying around to see how all of you ladies make out. I think I am coming to terms with it a bit more now. I wish all of you all the baby dust and luck in this crazy IVF world...you all deserve it.
