Hey all you twin, triplet and quad mamas out there! I would love a thread dedicated to hearing where you all are in your pregnancy, as I rarely have time to respond to threads anymore, and would like updates on you all (just in one easy place ) Also, if you've given birth recently, post here too!
Sending good baby cooking vibes your way, mamas!

I am 30 weeks today & have been in the hospital for observation since Thursday. I was contracting on my NST that afternoon and they wanted to do an FFN but the lab is closed until Tuesday... so they started steroids just in case today... plus Baby B had a couple decels on today's NST.

I'm here! Very new, as I only found out that I was having twins yesterday! I am 6 weeks 4 days!

Working on the nutrition aspect now. Trying to gather as much information as I can about how to eat healthy in a twin pregnancy. Any advice would be much appreciated!

I'm here too

I am 28 weeks with twins. Due in early August. Knock on wood everything is going well so far. My last U/S at 26 weeks looked good with both babies estimated at over 2 lbs (although I don't out much stock in U/S weight estimates). Passed my glucose test last week which was a huge relief. I am anxious about the labor - not my OB so much as the hospital protocols. I am just starting to think about how I will deal with all of that.

My next u/s is at 33 weeks and I get my first nst then too.

Nummies- Get "Having Twins and More" by Elizabeth Noble. Really good advice on nutrition.

I'm 23wk5d with mono/di twins - found out 3 weeks ago at our routine u/s - quite the shock! LOL

I go for my first OB app on Tuesday (been under GP care til now and was transferred) so I look forward to finding out what the stance is of this OB on twin births! So far I feel totally fine - no difference between my singletons and this one really...

Not me, unless you count dreams...

Twice last week I dreamed I was pregnant. In one of the dreams, I was carrying twin boys!

27 weeks here with twin girls! Our 4th and 5th babies and all girls I am so happy I have made it this far. We've had concern over preterm labor.

Our next u/s is tomorrow. :

I have been feeling really icky. I have constant braxton hicks and then on top of that if I stand or walk for even a few minutes I feel like my heart is going to pound out of my chest and I get the waves of blackness in my vision :

How is everyone doing with names? We have been sure about one name (Byrd calling her Byrdie) but have been really struggling with another name. So far we have gone through Clementine and Willa (calling her Billie).

Also preg with girls. This will bring our girl total to 3. Wow, 5 girls!! That's a LOT of estrogen for one house, eh!?
Hmm, hope you're gonna mention the waves of blackness to your CP! That doesn't sound fun.
Names... oh boy. Well, we have named one of them but still no progress towards naming the other.

Me - 26-27 weeks pregnant and doing just fine. Nothing worrisome to report. I'm starting to do more preparation for the "end game." Investigating out of hospital options - though MT midwives don't do twins at home. Working on my OWN informed consent forms - VBAC and c/s. Looking for the research that justifies c/s for twins and especially twin VBAC - just not finding it.
Enjoying summer! :

Another one here! I will be 34 weeks on Wednesday. We're expecting mono/di boys and are getting so excited to meet them. My OB plans on inducing at 38 weeks, so I sincerely hope they come on their own just before that. I feel like I need every bit of the next 4 weeks to prepare, but at the same time I'm pretty uncomfortable. lol

Question for you "MOM"s... how did you eat enough in the last few weeks? I can hardly fit any food in any more!

I'm 14 weeks prego with twins! Baby B is really stretching out my uterus ... he's really high and to my right. It hurts!

I'm really looking forward to finding out the sexes!
post #16 of 41

Double protein shakes!

Congrats to all the expectant MoMs!

Jumping in here, 22 weeks with unknown sex twins found about two weeks ago. My first post-finding-out midwife appointment is tomorrow so I have a lot of questions for her, I hope she's carved out a lot of time! (Hi Laura!)

Well hi all you mammas, and welcome!! I hope that everything resolves itself easily for all you mammas having some challenges. Big cyber-hug to you all!
I hope that this board can help you all to have the pregnancy and births that you want, and at least help support you through the journey of it all.
As far as protein late in pg, or anytime during it, Chantel is absolutely right with the double protein shakes. I liked yogurt with peanut butter, cocoa powder that had some protein to it, or protein powder, sometimes I would throw in green leafies with fruit, or add tofu. There are so many ways to make it awesome! Add wheat germ or fish oil, or any other good thing. Eat eggs with meat if you are not a vegetarian, and spread nut butters over everything. Eat almonds, walnuts, cashews, etc. Oh, and if you just need a little treat, or just a break from a regular smoothie, have icecream. Gosh, eat cheese and find bread with the highest protein count. Good luck!
Also, all of these things have been discussed a lot in other threads, so search them for all of our "brilliant" ideas!
