Hey! Great topic!
My m/s (really evening sickness that progressed to all-day sickness) started about week 6-7 and continued until week 10-11. I am so much better now! Now I am dealing with back and hip pain along with excessive sleepiness. My uterus is up to my belly button now and I am the size that a 6 month singleton would be. Just felt what I think was the first kick last night about this same time (they may not have liked the pizza I ate!) I have no food aversions, but try to steer clear of uncooked onions due to heartburn. My (o)(o) have grown a whole cup size (PERK!) and so has my butt (BUMMER!). I am measuring my belly about every week and have been progressing slowly until this week. I've gained 1/2 inch in 5 days! Now I'm starting to hit their growth spurt stage. I am due in June, but expect to deliver in May.

How are things with you?

Hi girls! Fun topic, and probably lots of useful info to share :)

I am just at 15 weeks today and feeling great! I had a little nausea in the first 2 months but nothing compared to what I hear about. I have gone up in cup size from a B to a D! Crazy to all the sudden have breasts when I have not had much my whole life. hehe I guess my only other symptoms is getting winded quickly and my emotions are off the charts.

I'm really excited to go to the OB on Tuesday. I'm thinking they can take a look at genders if the babies are cooperating?? Shelby- When did you find out about the boys were boys?

Hope you are doing well and enjoying your pregnancies!

Hi Ladies,
Mind if I join you? I'm not exactly due in summer, more like spring, but there is no spring thread for twins and I was always too tired to start one!

I've been feeling good lately, but I still have morning sickness. My doc says i'm probably just one of those people that will have it the whole time, so i'm on Zofran until the very end. It makes me feel much better though, so I can't complain! I had absolutely no energy up until about a month ago and I'm still pretty zapped, but it's much better now. I have become such a napper and before becoming pregs, I never napped!

I just got back to work after being off since December 23rd and it was so nice to just stay in bed and relax for the most part. I've been totally nesting though, I cleaned out my entire closet for the first time since we moved in 4 years ago. It was right after DH hurt my feelings (which in hindsight was just my raging hormones, but i'll never tell him so), I went upstairs and ripped my whole closet apart and reorganized it and got rid of a ton of stuff. Now i'm sure DH knows that if he pushes my buttons, our house will be spotless in a matter of days :-)

Dillys- Man my boobs are huge!!!! I was already a pretty big C and now i'm into letters that I never even knew existed. The worst part is that i'm due in May (probably April) and I was asked to stand up in a wedding in June and I have no idea where to even begin with picking out a dress. At least the bride is flexible and she's just picking a color and letting us pick out the style.

I'm in!! Congratulations ladies!!
I'm only 6.5 weeks, should be due in August. Found out last week from an early u/s it's twins, and me and DH are thrilled!
I have felt pretty good, some pain in the upper right quad that they think might be gallbladder related, I had a pretty nasty case of OHSS that had to be tapped, but other than those things, just tired.
I did start some dark spotting today...RE says not to worry, but of course I'm a little freaked out...
We have done 7 cycles at this point, and know it's God's will either way, but I feel like even though my faith is strong, I am completely paranoid and waiting for the other shoe to drop.

I too, am thrilled my bbs are coming along, I have been a B cup (and that's a stretch) forever. Some bloating, but I think thats mainly residual from the crazy OHSS.
So glad u started this thread...I was thinking of dong the same thing!

Great to see so many ladies joining us!

Dilly - I found out for sure that they were boys between weeks 15 and 16. So as long as they cooperate, you should know tomorrow! How exciting!

Shep- I remember emailing my sister at 6 weeks telling her that I was already showing and I was! I told my boss at 11 weeks and she said she thought so for awhile, just didn't want to say anything. I bet it was probably bloating and the progesterone and the IVF process itself, but I never did shrink back down before blowing up again! I also had some bleeding/spotting in week 5 and again in week 12 and everything was fine. I was told it's pretty common for twin moms to bleed a little more and the progesterone will do it too. Try not to worry yourself sick about it, i'm sure it will all be okay!

Dillys- I found out between weeks 15-16 as well. They actually took a peek two weeks before that and the babies weren't cooperating (both of them crossed their legs and locked their feet tight!), so they couldn't tell.

I am expecting my second set of twins on July 8 but the OB has told me that we will be doing a c-section in early June. My first set of twins were due on July 1 and were born by emergency c-section on April 24. I hope I make it to June this time.

I am having my first trimester screening done tomorrow by my maternal-fetal medicine Dr and then having another u/s with my OB on the 12th. I am hoping that we will be able to determine the sex at one of those appointments eventhough I am only 13.5 weeks. If not I will have to wait until February.

I am due in August but I am praying I can hold them in until mid june. I had a miserable first pregnancy which started out as quads (from 3 embies) three died in utero and my water broke at 24 weeks. it barely ended with one. My beautiful DD was born at 26 weeks weighing under 1lb. She just turned 2. I have a classic C section scar and I am very concerned about that and delivering early. I have my first apt with the high risk OB on wed and when I called to make the apt they remembered me and were shocked when I said "Yep, it's twins" Like lady didn't you learn from your last pregnancy...I did learn! Which is why I only transferred 1 embie but low and behold...identical twins it is. I have my last apt with my RE tomorrow and I hope to get off these shots too. My arse is killing me. Busy week for me.
Happy growing ladies:)

I had my First Trimester screening with the maternal-fetal medicine doctor done today. Everything looked really good, and he tried to determine the sex of the babies, but they would not cooperate. He told me that he felt sorry for me and my husband because the babies were so active. He said that it is unusual for babies that small to be doing flips and continuously moving like they were. He even had a hard time getting heartbeats on them because they were moving so much. I told him that I would rather have babies that are more active than usual than to have babies that are not.

Rikirees: what a story!! I pray everything goes ok for you this time...

Mommie: looks like you and I are on almost the exact same schedule! I go for my heartbeat u/s tomorrow. When will your RE refer you to a regular OB? I'm not sure if my RE continues to follow me after tomorrow, or if I have to find OB. I know they follow the whole preg, but I think they refer me at some point.
Any symptoms yet? I haven't had any m/s yet, some queasiness in the evening, but other than being able to take a nap at a moment's notice, not much.

Everyone else...congrats!!! Can't stand the wait!

Shep181- my RE is really far away like a 2 1/2 hr drive so I'm set up to have my first OB appt this Friday so I don't know when the RE's usually release you but I just decided to make my own appt and see my previous OB I can't wait cause I get to have another u/s so DH can finally see them.
