I haven't be on here forever, so I'm so sorry I've fallen so behind. I was so crazy tired during my first trimester and now I'm starting to feel so much better, but of course work got CRAZY then. I've so enjoyed reading about everybody's experiences and I find this thread so valuable...thank you!
AFM, I'm 17 weeks and this week we found out we are having 2 girls! We have a two year old son at home, so this will be wonderful. So far I haven't seen a perinatologist, but at this last OB appointment, they recommended we have our 20 week scan with a specialist. Our Baby B was measuring about 14% smaller than Baby A (who was right on target). Did any of you experience a size difference like that this early in the pregnancy? I hope everything is ok. Other than that new worry, I am definitely showing now, but feeling great. I hope to start getting our house prepared more so that if I end up on bedrest, etc... things will be more ready. We are on a waiting list for our son's daycare, which we love, but I don't know if we can afford to send all three kids there yet or not. I think we'll research a nanny for the twins, but I don't know how all of that works in terms of taxes and payment to the nanny (or what the cost would even be). Do any of you have any nanny pointers? We live in a smaller town, so I don't think we have a nanny service to go through to find a nanny. Any ideas? I also just recently joined a Moms of Multiples club (an hour away), so now I have a "Big Sister" that has twins already. I'm sure that will be helpful.
I'm sorry for no personals, but I truly have been enjoying reading all of your updates!
