Getting out of breath easily is one of the few symptoms I have noticed for a while. Wonder if it has something to do with blood volumes changing?
post #42 of 117
I thought I had read somewhere that it was fairly common, but my mom seemed freaked out.

I"m out of breathe all the time. I swear I cannot carry on a conversation without being winded.

Some of its normaly from loosing spce for diaphraghm and blood volume etc. But if its severe, or accompanied with any pain anywhere in the chest/back or shoulders, get it looked into to make sure its not a blood clot.

Congratulations!

I also get out of breath quite easily-- walking too quickly or uphill or on the stairs at work. It's another of those symptoms that showed up much earlier than I expected. Based on my singletons, I thought breathlessness was a late 3rd trimester kind of thing.

Today I had the detailed anatomy scan and both little guys looked wonderful. They're each 9 oz, which the dr seemed to think was great for their age.

No, when we found out we were having twins I was so shocked that I didn't think to ask hardly any questions but I will add that to my list of things to find out about at the next appointment.

I'm seriously starting to get worried now. I tried calling my midwife today but the office is closed. I'm guessing because of the upcoming holiday?

I do feel the occasional light flutter though so hopefully I am just being paranoid over nothing. I think what is making me uber paranoid is because my niece is pregnant right now and is 1 week further along and has been talking about how hard the baby is kicking for WEEKS now. I know, I know I have had enough kids to know better than to compare my pregnancy with that of another but still.... its just starting to get me really worried.

at 16 weeks I feel nada. At the ultrasound the other day the baby did a complete flip... and changed sides. Nope not a darn thing. It depends on placentas, and baby positions Soon enough we'll all be whininng how they kick all night long and keep us up

I have an anterior placenta (mostly anterior, and wraps around on the left) and it makes a huge difference. It's certainly disconcerting to expect more movement this time and instead feel less. And I've always been able to feel my babies super early. Those light flutters are becoming more frequent for me, just in the past week. And I know from u/s that the babies are great. But no hard kicks at all yet!
post #51 of 117
I have one placenta at the top, and one posterior. I've always had anterior placentas, so never felt anything until like 20+ weeks.
post #52 of 117
I don't know where my placentas are, but I know I feel these babies moving like crazy. They do this weird thing where they're buzzing my cervix. I have no idea what that's all about, but I don't like it.

Hello everyone !

Can we join you ?

DP is 7W5D pregnant and we found out thursdsay that we are having twins ! It is a surprise because even tho we did use ART and were on clomid to get pregnant, the cd11 ultrasound revealed only one mature follicle... so either that one created identical twins or there was another one hidden somewhere !

We had a feeling it might be twins when we found out our betas which were 12000 at 23 DPO and 20000 at 25 DPO. But after going through ART for many many cycles, we were very skeptical about the beta numbers... we had such a hard time making one, what are the odds that two came out of having only one follicle ???

The twins will be our first children. I will be 34 when they are born and DP will be 33.

welcome Coco, yeah it is certainly possible that you have MZ twins, when they looked at your U/s did they see one sack or two? MZ or DZ twins can have two but only MZ twins can both be in one., a little later one there may be other small clues that you can see in a clear u/s that will give you more hints. but if the egg split in the first 3 days and they happen to be the same sex, there will be no way of knowing till you test some dna.

Welcome Coco & DP and congratulations.

Thank you guys for helping me calm down about the baby kicking situation. At my 17 week ultrasound they were moving all over the place and I never felt a thing soooo deep breath in deep breath out. chill chill chill

It's so strange, this makes my 6th pregnancy and yet I feel like I am in uncharted territories for the first time in a long time. I am sure I will be driving my midwife, and possibly you guys, crazy before the boys get here.

Thanks to all of you again.

Hello

There were two sacks so yeah, we have no idea yet !
One way ot the other, it will be wonderful

My father and stepmom just gave us our first twins present : two bears they made themselves at the teddy-bear factory (or something like that) in which they put wishes for the babies and for which they had to make a pledge before leaving the store (i would have loved to see my father do THAT lol). They made two very different bears so maybe thats a sign LOL.

It makes me very happy to see my dad be happy baout being a grandfather and about it being twins... especially since I was a little bit concerned that he would react differently to DP carrying instead of me (it was supposed to be me initially but we found out my tubes were blocked two years ago...). I am happy to see that he doesn't seem to make a difference and that he seems very happy

Its great to be here

Coco- That is awesome about your family and thembeing so excited and receptive of twins! My family wasn't at all... lmao still isn't fully either.

I'm pooped ladies. I swear I feel like I've been hit by a car. I dislocated one of my ribs (OUCH!) So no deep breaths.... My sciatica is acting up pretty bad, and I've been contracting a lot lately. (Which is normal for me). However... they make me sore when you spend a whole day or night contracting every 10 miutes. So mix all of that together and I feel like a mess!

Anyone have big plans for the 4th? We are going out and about... so here's to hopeing I don't aggrevate the uterus any furtuer

Happy 4th ladies!

turnquia-- Ouch! I hope you're able to find some relief soon!

I'm just getting back from a week in southern CA with my in-laws. dh and the kids stayed an additional week. (Dh is a teacher so he's also on summer vacation.) First time I've ever been home for so long without the kids around! And probably the last for a while!

I came on this board a couple months ago with questions about travel so I thought I'd report back. When I found out about the twins, we had this family trip planned and I had also accepted an invitation to speak at a conference in Europe later in July. After asking around here, I decided to cancel the 2nd trip. (One dr had advised no travel even in 1st trimester; another said it was entirely up to me... so not much help there.) Well I'm SO GLAD I made the choice I did. I felt OK on the way to CA (from the east coast) and the time with family was actually very relaxing. But the flight back seemed awfully long (i'm 19 weeks now) and I couldn't get comfortable at all. Another hour in the air would have driven me over the edge. Maybe in first class it would be more do-able. But I'm very happy with my decision to stay grounded for the 2nd half of this pregnancy.

Welcome back! I think a kid-free week sounds absolutely lovely.

We're planning a weekend trip to NYC sometime in August. It's about 3 hours away by car. We have a tradition of seeing a Broadway show whenever I'm pregnant. I've convinced DH that twins = 2 shows, but he only has to come see one. He has no desire to see In the Heights, so I am going to go with a friend who is another theater geek. I'm worried it will be too much, but I'm really going to put my foot down and say no museums or hiking around. We have friends to visit with, and 2 shows to see.

I have this horrible nasty itchy rash on my neck that seems to be spreading. I finally realized today that I think it's PUPPS. I've had it before, but it started on my belly. Sigh.
