Congratulations, Adina! Are you in triplet shock?! I hope that you have lots of friends and family around to help you and your family at the end of your pregnancy (you'll need to keep your feet up!) and once the babies arrive.

I'm pregnant with twins who are due in mid June. I just found out at my 13 week ultrasound and almost fell off the table. My husband and I are very excited. We already have a wonderful 15 month old little boy.

My pregnancy has been pretty hard so far. I throw up three-five times per day and I'm completely exhausted. I could sleep all day if it were possible!

I'm about 7weeks or so pregnant with twins. I found out at about 5.5 weeks - the RE's nurse suggested a scan b/c my beta HCG numbers were too high. I went from 367 on 15DPO to over 6100 on 20DPO! We saw heart flickers at that scan and again on Thursday at our repeat scan. HBs were both right around 130.

I don't know what the heck I'm doing. I'm excited and scared. I'm risked out of both homebirth (twins) and the birth center (cesarean) and am gonna have a devil of a time finding a provider here who isn't afraid of a woman who wants to use her vagina. From what I've heard, there have been NO natural breech births in W. MT for years. I guess we'll just see what happens.

The bellies look great gals! Even though I'm only 7 weeks, I'm already sporting a little round belly. My waist has also widened. I'm gonna get huge. It's a good thing I liked being pregnant with DD so very much!

Well,I'm new to the community.I've learned so much from reading everyone else's posts.I'm 30 weeks with twin girls,we have a 31/2 yr old very busy boy.He knew we were pregnant before we knew and he knew there is twin girls before we knew,talk about a crazy 6th sense.I got a sono the other day the girls are healthy 3 lbs each.The Dr said my uterus thinks I'm full term?Is this happening to anyone else.Plus my breasts are leaking for a month now,I'm ready.My son was earlie so if we can get in another 4-6 weeks I'll be super happy.They stopped labor with my boy at 33 weeks then we had him at 35.He was small but very healthy.All the women in my family have small babies and a little earlie.I have to say I've never been so tired in my life,as soon as I almost fall a sleep I have to pee,not once but like 10 times.I have to nap with my son everyday or dinner won't be on the table.Are all of you sisters this tired?I'm lucky if the wash gets done.Oh we got great news with the sono to,twin a is in birthing position,she's not dropped thank the good earth,but she's in the right position,I keep dreaming she was.Thank ya'all for all the post and info.Be well,Jodie

There's certain positions you can do to get the babies to get onto position.All 4's,lay on back have hips elevated 18 inches above heart.Look on line for more I got our girl twin a in birthing position by these positions,twin b is transverse,but they will deliver them that way,vaginally .Thank goodness!!!Good luck,sending birthing position vibes your way.

Just saw this thread. I'm due with boy/girl twins mid-March.

They're both in up/down positions (they can't make up their minds and keep flipping) right now. My Dr says she doesn't have a problem delivering a breech baby "b", but the presenting baby has to be vertex. So far she's been pretty good about my birth choices. Typically a vaginal twin birth includes the works--pitocin, continuous monitoring, epidural and delivery in the OR (and usually only if both babies are vertex). Luckily she's stuck with the position of "you have the right to refuse anything" so far. But I've only scratched the surface with her, I'm curious to see how that changes once I show her my birth plan/preferances. And suprisingly, she hasn't mentioned a c-section a single time. That's about unheard of around here!

This could have been my post a year ago!!! My DD1 was the same age, and had told me I had two babies in my belly. Then that we had girls. And yes, I looked and measured full term with like 2 months to go. DD1 was born at 35 weeks (also very healthy but small), and to my somewhat suprise, my twins came at 38 weeks!!! You never know.......
Welcome!!!!

I was measuring full term with 8 weeks to go. And I've had my breast leaking for at least 2 months now, probably 3. The other day I was watching some home birth videos and I was dripping milk from my right breast!

I'm due May 7 with probable identical twins! We have our "big" ultrasound with a peri on Friday, I can't wait.

I have a 15 month old DD so it's going to get crazy at our house!

I've been measuring full term since week 29. I've been able to express some colostrum out since week 20 or so, but the other day when I did it, I got a suprise--it squirted! I'm not talking about a little squirt either--it shot out a couple feet. LMAO!

So cute, Dividedsky!

I'm going to post here even though it's far from certain that I will be carrying these babies to term. I am just about 7 weeks along and we saw both babies on Monday at 6.5 weeks. I knew from conception that I ovulated on both sides and felt both ovaries secreting progesterone like mad during my luteal phase. Unfortunately the doctor was not optimistic about Baby B, who is in a much smaller/compressed sac than Baby A. She didn't even bother measuring him/her or looking for a heartbeat. We'll be looking again on Friday I hope, if I can get an appointment.

This is my fifth pregnancy, and so far I've felt like I got my normal first trimester symptoms condensed into the first 6 weeks! I had my usual mild nausea and bloating way early, and then pretty much nothing for a while. The only stand-out symptom is INTENSE hunger that I've only felt while in my peak of milk production for 3 kids plus a donor baby. My milk supply is starting to drop off now too.

My fingers and toes and everything else are crossed for Baby B that he/she makes it through this fragile time. I have a suspicion that he/she implanted way late, like 13dpo, putting him/her at a full week behind developmentally. I hope that is all the concern is and we'll be able to see both flickering hearts on Friday - even though they'll probably still give me a grim prognosis since they won't believe that they could be a full week apart in growth and be okay.

I hope I get to still be around and planning my twin homebirth with you all come next summer.
