.So weird. Sorry for the multiple blank posts. I was trying to edit and it just came off as though I was drunk posting. :)

Smurfette, you're hilarious!  We've been in the "oops" pregnancy game for years. LOL  Never regretted a single one of them once they're here.  After reading your chart notes above, I'm not surprised you've got a BFP.  I look forward to your update on Friday!  My girls are just a couple weeks older than yours, and I can't imaging being pregnant again already!!!

So whatever levels showed up in my urine must be really high because I'm only about 19 days in. Which leads me to think, "uh oh" singleton pregnancies don't produce that much HCG this early.

 

I drop eggs like an Easter bunny because I suffer from PCOS - I should've gotten my tubes tied.

 

BTW, I have no idea why I'm telling you Moms this. I wouldn't share this info with my neighbor. Anonymity is bad thing. Lol.

 

You know, it's one thing I really like about MDC.  There's a lot of stuff I wouldn't mention to close friends, but here - we're all more or less interested, and there's less fear of embarrassment.  Not to worry!

 

Congratulations, whether it's one baby, or the two that seem so possible!   stork-suprise.gif

We have two sets!! I think the 2nd set was just as much of a surprise, if not more so, than the 1st. There are no twins in my family history at all so our two sets are such an amazing miracle to us. Both sets are frat boys. The 1st set made babies 4&5 for us and are 6 years old now. The 2nd set made babies 9&10 and just turned 7 months. The twin journey is so amazing to me. I'd do a 3rd set in a heartbeat.

Awesome! Your story totally gives me inspiration. We are completely unprepared for Baby #4, even moreso than hearing we were expecting twins. What worries me is even though I had an u/s on Friday and the tech immediately located the gestational sac, she lost it for a minute. Twice! And she mumbled something about thinking it was anterior vs posterior. My husband and I looked at each other thinking... two eggs, two locations, twins? She did the transvaginal instead of the standard over the tummy procedure. I guess my OB had ordered it that way. I know that whenever they're looking for new growths on my ovaries they use the transvaginal but I thought it was kinda weird she used it to confirm my pregnancy.

 

I'm not sure I updated but we are expecting another baby - due Feb 3, 2012. We're hoping we can hold off on learning the sex until birth and are calling him or her Baby Evan. So far so good. No morning sickness, no other symptoms but my teeth are killing me. This happens during every pregnancy. Something with my nerves or my blood pressure. None of my docs show concern so I guess it's not a prob, it's just annoying and painful and results in a lot of sleepless nights.

 

I broke my nose the other day and fractured some toes and sprained an ankle so all of that added trauma may be affecting my bp. I tripped in my flip flops on a pneumatic sprinkler and slammed into my husband's truck mirror. Total klutz but I'm fine. The swelling on my nose has finally subsided, in time for me to attend my cousin's graduation. I still have 2 black eyes though. LOL.

We experienced the same.

My second pregnancy also started as a twin pregnancy. We lost one little baby.

Well our "Baby Evan" is actually "Baby Evan & Co." because we're expecting twins... again.

Just got back from Italy - on my way to my doc to make sure my nose healed properly. I'm

a mess.

 

I'm 8 weeks, totally bloated and hugely preg. I look like I'm about 4 mos. More later...

Oh my, and congratulations! 

post #33 of 45

I've been wondering if you'd found out for sure yet!  Congratulations!  

post #34 of 45

Congratulations! Take care. Hope your nose will heal soon.

I don't mean to pry but I am losing sleep over this. When did you miscarry the 2nd baby?

 

My nose healed "okay-so-so" and I can risk going thru a 2nd surgery to fine-comb the kinks or just hang on until next Spring and undergo the rhinoplasty then. My only concerns now would be pain management since I nurse and anesthesia - whether local or regional, none of them seem like a good idea while I'm pregnant. My doc recommends fixing my nose now while the tissue is still soft and unscarred (less pain, faster healing) and that the local anesthesia would be as safe as getting a root canal in the 1st trimester. I have to think about it.

 

So far this pregnancy is going okay. I have major headaches in the AM and as I said before, my baby bump looks like I'm 4 months along. This is the 3rd day where my milk supply has diminished and I'm kind of concerned. I spoon fed G today some pureed cereal and bananas which was pretty much 70% breastmilk but she loved it. I think she'll be ready for regular solids a lot sooner than 6 months. Anyway, I've been trying to pump all day and yielding very little. I think the girls are able to get more via nursing but I'm concerned nonetheless. I probably should eat more since I'm feeding five people! I was up 5 or 6 lbs since I last weighed in at 6 weeks but in the three days we've been home, I've lost 2 lbs. Oh well, I'll deal with that tomorrow.

 

Have a good night everyone! :)

Congrats on the second set!  I have two sets as well-back to back MZ girls and then MZ boys.  You are in for a wild ride but I'm sure you knew that already.  ;)

When we went for pregancy confirmation at 8 weeks there was an empty sac, they weren't sure if it would develop or not. Because they think I conceived my boys a week apart, and they weren't sure of gestational age, we went back at 12 weeks to check and the sac was gone. It was a terrible blow, and it took me about 4 months pp to stop seeing a shadow next to her and to enjoy her for the single that she was. Then I had a dream that my next preg. would be triplets - another set of twins and one for the one I lost and I felt much better. joy.gif Even if it doesn't happen, it still gave me hope.

Please share your story. How far apart are your twins? I totally didn't plan this despite the rolling of eyes that goes on when people see me with the two girls and pregnant again. Geez. Cut me some slack. I'm married. I'm employed. Let me worry about it. Anyway, I just want to absorb as much training and helpful hints as possible. So far my girls aren't so bad. We went thru some colic in the early days, I suffered from PPD badly and Sophia is a finicky nurser but other than that, they're so fun. It's nice having a baby or two in the house again. I've got a scooter on my hands. My girl Sophia scoots her butt out of everything but usually the seatbelt is on so she gets stuck. Oh my goodness, we rescue her like 20 times a day. If we leave her on the floor, she doesn't move. She wants to scoot. Tummy time she's been aeroplaning her legs and then propping one underneath her body. She might crawl sooner than expected.

 

Did you nurse all 4 kids? BTW, I want all girls. DH wants at least one boy.

Okay DH is totally onboard to try for triplets. He's crazy and he has no more swimmers. This is my last pregnancy. Today I was at Urgent Care for 5 hrs because my b/p was extremely high. And my feet were so swollen it was painful to walk. I was limping! Horrible. Anyway, I got some meds, lowered my b/p and they ordered me to take it easy and go on a low sodium diet. Ugh. Also I have to cut out cold medications because the doc felt like the Dayquil and Sudafed were sending my b/p over the top.
I don't know. I'm only 11 weeks in and already having complications. I need to go camping to rejuvinate.
