Welcome AJ and Maci!
Thankyou for posting in the thread, even if people dont have much to say or much time on the net its nice to have a support group we can post questions to if we have something new happen.
Its my daughters last day of school until next year when she is in year one. Shes really growing up, i used to really panic every year she grew and feel like she would be gone too quick, but since this pregnancy i have been able to enjoy her age more and more, safe in the knowledge it wont be the last time i have a child those ages. I had a miscarriage from my first attempts at ivf last year, i had a BFN on my ivf and positive on my next FET, but i miscarried that was the most terrible time and i had to have a year off.
What about you guys how long has it taken you to arrive at this pregnancy?
My husband also has been very helpful but he wont let me get out of bed most of the time demanding that i bed rest, not have any chocolate (caffine) or any of the other half heard things that he thinks i should do to protect the babies
. But he is also doing all the Laundry, washing up and vacuming so i am really thankful.
I am 19 weeks now and i STILL think something is wrong with one of the twins. I have been a long time lurker on this BB from around june 2005 but this is only one of my first posts, after my miscarriage i have had a great fear of jinxing this pregnancy, so didnt want to post. But i am very glad i did now. I have a few awesome 3d picks of the twins, the latest from yesturday is two bottom and leg shots hehe. They are so cute and so well defind, they look like full term babies just very skinny ( they would be a lot smaller as well but you cant see that in the photo).
Are you going to have a nucal fold UC?
How old is your DS and did you have him naturally or IVF? And did you find out his sex before he was born?
I also had a terrible cold in the first trimester, it was misery i hope you feel better soon,
I know you dont always get onto the boards so dont feel guilty if you dont answer this post for a while.
Wow your just where all of us want to be nearly to D-day. I wanted to ask you how far ahead you messured? I am messuring 9 weeks ahead. Also too all the other twin mums can you tell me what you are messuring for your weeks? I want to know if i am messuring to far ahead:).
Even at 19weeks i am finding it hard to walk around, i am having terrible ligament pain, i never had it will my dd so i have been worried its shortening cervix or something but my scans show a long closed cervix.
I think i will start looking at stuff to buy in feb, just to make sure i can get stuff and if i cant have plenty of time to order in. Most important is a twin breast feeding pillow.
Are you girls planing to breastfeed? I breastfed my daughter until 2 years old and after the first week it was a breeze. I got terrible nibble sores from the baby attaching wrong in the first day or so but my hubby brought nibble sheilds and they saved my life. Make sure your hubby is on hand to help with breastfeeding sessions at first, he had to break the babies sucion with his finger while i screamed in pain. You wont belive how much it hurts but after you get over that first few days you can breastfeed vacuming if you want hehe.
ok thats a long post sorry just wanted to welcome everyone
