bgerl- Welcome to MDC!!!!! You might want to ask your question as a new post here in the parenting multiples section and also in you tribe area and maybe in one of the homebirth sections. That way you'll get the most views. I'm in IL, so I can't help you with CA recommendations.
wendi - I don't know about twins, but I know my first born hardly ever moved and to this day he is very calm and easy going. My 2nd child was ALWAYS active and continues to be ALWAYS active to this day. So, 2 seperate kids can show their personalities even in utero. I notice you're in Chicago. I'm also in Chicago, can I ask where you're birthing? I'm strongly considering Lutheran General. (I hear they have a great NICU.) But, I'm still searching for whoever's the best for ID twins in the Chicagoland area.
Adaline's mama - Yeah for movement!!!!! So exciting!!!! And yeah for a good visit!!!! All of these steps just put you more and more at ease.
mamalove - I'll take those book recommendations too. Thanks. Does LLL also have a breastfeeding twins book? I imagine they do. How does breastfeeding work with an extended NICU stay? I think I'll be looking at that. Congrats on reaching 34 weeks, but I imagine this is all old hat for you!
sorta crunchy - I'm with you. There has NEVER been twins in my family, although there are ID twins on my dh's family and I understand that he might be to blame.
I had 2 healthy, relatively easy pregnancies and then 2 losses last year. So, I'm still holding my breath that these 2 will stick and on top of all the other concerns..... Well anyways, hopefully we can all figure out this twin thing together.
QM - Ugh. What a time of it! I really DO think it'll be fine. Babies do great even when women are sick the entire pregnancy. Hugs to you.
Bekah - Hi!!!! Welcome to MDC! What have they told you about you identicals? Why do they think they're identical? I have so many questions about identicals and I don't even know where to begin.
AFM - We had a great vacation. I wasn't sick at all, just very, very tired. But, the day we got back, the nausea hit again, so that kinda made me feel a little better, if that makes any sense. My next u/s is supposed to be Wednesday August 8th as long as work doesn't send me on a trip. As soon as I tell them I'll stop traveling. But, with all the uncertainty I just don't know what to say and when to say it! I think if Wednesday goes well, I'll tell them after that. I'll update everyone after Wednesday's u/s. Wish me luck.
