Ruling out twins? - Page 2

post #21 of 25
Thread Starter 

Are you willing to take it up with my husband for me?

 

I know full well. If I were the only parent making decisions for my pregnancies, I wouldn't be getting the 20 week ultrasound. But since I really do like my husband and appreciate not being a single parent, there are some things that I just don't fight that hard on. Instead I'll save the energy when it comes to circumcision. I feel much more strongly about my son keeping all of his parts than I do whether or not I know which parts he may or may not have at birth.

This sounds like us.  I don't want to know the gender this time around, but DH does.  I have to respect that he has a vested interest in this pregnancy, too, and he has offered many concessions to me in the raising of our children (e.g. no circ).  So, I will likely have an ultrasound in the 2nd trimester for this reason alone.

I particularly don't want to know the gender this time either. We already have a boy and a girl, all the supplies, materials and clothing for both so the reasons before for knowing no longer exist. I really would like to be surprised. He really doesn't like surprises period so he doesn't want to be surprised in this way either. My concession is that he can know but he can't tell me or anyone else either, and it will be up to him to not slip and make it known. I don't know how well it will work, but we're going to try it.

 

At this point, it more important for me to know what to do going forward regarding twins. Gender of baby or babies doesn't matter, but knowing the facts about twins and what my likelihood is for them, and what likelihood they have for a healthy pregnancy matters most. I've been gathering info on rates of TTTS and various arrangement of placentas and sacs. Next I need to start reading up on twin birth at home. Anyone have some good resources for that?
