Autumn/Winter/Spring 2012-2013 (and spring ladies too if they want to join us smile.gif ) All dates posted are the 40 week due date. I know some of you will go way earlier than the EDD, but the EDD makes it easier to figure out how far along someone is.

So, I scrapped the questions I originally had, and stole these from the link Adorkable posted below:

Name? (if you feel like it)

You and maybe your partners age at the birth?

Are the babies Mono or Di or what combo of both?

What number of kids will is be for you?

Sexes? Will you be finding out?

EDD and or planned birth timing?

State you live in?

Anything else you want to share?

My partner, who is also on these boards (mamacolleen), is pregnant with twins.

I am very happy about it...but very freaked out too!

 

When are you due? Will have them at about 38 weeks (hopefully naturally) at end of November


How many kids do you have? We have 1 DD that will be 3yrs 4 months at the birth


Do you twins run in your family? Wife has twins in her family, but identicals, which do not run in families. We are having twins due to IVF.


What variety of twins are you pregnant with? di/di. They do not share anything and are fraternal.

 

Congrats to you and your family.

This thread is sort of the current "pregnant with twins" chat if you want to check it out:

 

http://www.mothering.com/community/t/1348365/anyone-else-expecting-twins

 

I wanted to say hi and welcome to you both!

 

As for me..

I'm due September 15th.

I have an 11 year old and 17 month old twins.

No twins in my extended family but this is the second set for *my* family :)

And this set is di/di :)

mamalove- I did see that thread, but I just thought it looked more like people who were having babies right now or who had mostly already had them. I know there are some twin moms in the nov, dec, and jan ddc's so Im hoping they will take up here with us too smile.gif I'm glad you linked it to here though, because there is lots of chat there about being further along that some of us who just found out may find helpful down the road.

Wow, TWO sets! How exciting!
post #5 of 448

I am due November 3rd with boy/girl twins.  We just found out two weeks ago so I don't know much about twins. We have three other boys 8,6 and 4 right now. twins do run in our family my grandpa was a twin and my grandma's brothers were twins.  I never thought that I would have them , thought it would be one of my cousins or something. At first I was shocked and scared, but I think I am getting used to the idea. I am concerned about learning how to nurse two at the same time. We also homeschool, so I am hoping my oldest doesnt get behind with me having to take care of the babies

Hi and welcome!

I'm due the last week of August with di/di fraternal girls.
These are my first babies.
As far as I know, there are no other twins in my family. I was totally shocked to find out I was pregnant with them (not to mention, I got pregnant while on birth control).
My pregnancy has been free of complications but it has not been at all easy for me. I am really looking forward to meeting my girls smile.gif
post #7 of 448

oh Holly! 

i just burst into tears when i saw this thread! you gave birth to your first right before i got preggo with my twins, and with your second you were a DDC with a super friend of mine IRL, so i was there reading your journey every step of the way. I have felt so deeply for you in a way I never would think that these strange electronic threads can bond us with. 

I am not a religious person nor particularly spiritual, but i am sure there is something magical in the world and it shines particularly bright from time to time when we let ourselves look for it. you must be glowing right now

 

crap i can't stop crying

 

may this pregnancy and your twins be a blessing for you, may they fill your family and heart with the love that is not meant to take away grief, but to wrap around it and put it lovingly to rest. 

 

i know it is silly, but i feel even more connected to you. hope you dont mind me stalking your pregnancy a bit love.gif

post #8 of 448

here is a example of the pregnant with twins threads i use to host, we tended to do a new one ever season or so, some got tons of interaction other seasons were light. but i think they were great.

post #11 of 448

This is pregnancy # 2 for us, babies #3&4 (yes, that means my first pregnancy was twins too! They were di-di, both girls)  I have a fraternal twin sister and lots of twins on my mom's side.  This set is mono-di and we are not finding out their sex.  due date of November 8th.  :)

post #12 of 448

Very excited to see this thread! I am due with twins in mid-October and also have a 4yo DS. They are di/di but since they are both boys, we won't know if they are MZ or DZ until after they are born (colsxjack, can I ask how you know yours are DZ? Did I miss that they are different sexes?). I was definitely surprised and apprehensive when we first found out but now I am beyond excited.

post #13 of 448

Name? Wendi

You and maybe your partners age at the birth? We will both be 32

Anything else you want to share? I'm terrified and hot and really, really uncomfortable- and I never ever ever imagined ever having twins- it's such a trip.

Are the babies Mono or Di or what combo of both? di/di

What number of kids will is be for you? 4th and 5th

Genders? Will you be finding out? It's a surprise!

EDD and or planned birth timing? September 15th

Anything else you want to share? I'm hitting the home stretch and am starting to freak out that we are really going to have two newborns in the house (again!) in only two months time!  Crazy!

post #15 of 448

Not pregnant anymore, just posting to say CONGRATULATIONS Adaline'sMama!!! and Welcome to the twins club!

Are the babies Mono or Di or what combo of both? di/di

What number of kids will is be for you? 1 &2

Genders?  Two girls!

EDD and or planned birth timing? 9/30

post #17 of 448

Can I join if its triplets? Hope thats OK..... I do have a set of twins though, just not pregnant with them anymore!! :p 

 

Name? (if you feel like it): Nikki

You and maybe your partners age at the birth? 30, 36

Are the babies Mono or Di or what combo of both? Not 100% sure yet. At the beginning of the pregnancy they said two were ID, then they changed their minds, now they are back to saying they might be. There is definitely only one placenta between the two boys, but we are unsure if thats from day one, or from fusing. We will test them after the birth, unless its wildly obvious they are frat. The third triplet is definitely fraternal, she has her own everything. And, you know, a vagina. :p 

What number of kids will is be for you? 7, 8 and 9. 

Genders? Will you be finding out?
Two boys and a girl. 

EDD and or planned birth timing? I have had four c-sections so will be having my fifth (although I am sure there are brave Moms who would try for a triplet VBA4C, I am just not one of them....) I am hoping to get to 35/36 weeks but would be "happy" with anything over 33. 

State you live in? Virginia
