Omigod! I just found out something really crazy.... - Page 2

Congratulations! But, wow, what a shock to get used to!

Oh my! Now that is a surprise!!! Congrats to you and your family. I keep getting teased that I am carrying twins even though we have had our u/s that just shows one babe. Now I don't think its that funny at all. hehe

Whoa! Now THAT's a great story. Just goes to show that ultrasound (and u/s techs) aren't infallible, eh?

Congratulations and good luck with your preparations for TWO babies! How exciting!

You better watch out! Alot of people teased me about having twins, since my belly is big. I even told my husband, "If we hadn't had that u/s, I would swear I was carrying twins...". Now that I'm telling everyone, all these people are coming out of the woodwork and saying, " When you told me your due date, I was wondering if you could be having twins." Yeah, I bet it's not funny now!

Now that you've had a few days to let the news soak in, how are you and your dh adjusting? Any concerns or questions?

I've been telling everyone your story....I just can't get over it!

Yeah, I pretty much had adjusted to it by the end of the next day, and now I wouldn't have it any other way! DH did alot better than I. He was immediately VERY happy, and calling all of his friends. I thought he would be terrified, but he's less afraid than I am. We have decided that it's great this is happening with our first pregnancy, because since we have no real idea of how hard it is to take care of babies, it won't be as much of a shock. Also, I decided that if I'm going to go to the trouble of squeezing one baby out, I might as well squeeze another one out at the same time .

One thing that was bothering me was not knowing if it would be possible to bf, co-sleep, cd, sling, etc. with twins. I went over to the Parenting Multiples forum, and those ladies let me know that I could do all of the above. That made me feel better. I'm sure I will have more questions, and I will be seeking your advice .

We can't quite get over the news, either! It will be a great story to tell the kids later on.

Cool! Glad you're feeling happy and confident. Sometimes adjusting to twins news can be a little tricky.

And yeah--I can't tell you how many times I've heard "you're lucky you had twins FIRST!" I think people have a point.

Congrats, and like the other twins moms said...keep your protein and water intake up, and you'll hopefully be taking home two full-term, chubby babies! : for you!

Visiting from April....WOW! Congratulations!!! I think I would literally pee my pants if that happened to me! I do have to admit that you have me a little tiny bit worried that could happen to me, because I'm suddenly WAY bigger (my uterus is really high all of a sudden not corresponding to weight gain) than I was at my last MW appt (22weeks- I was measuring normal then though) and I've been feeling movement both up by my ribs and down low at the same time. We got a pretty good look at our little one at our 19 week ultrasound so I can't imagine there would be anywhere else for a baby to hide in there...but after reading your story I suppose you never know! Anyway, CONGRATS!

WOW! Congrats. You are the second MDC mama that I know of recently to find out she's having twins well after 20 weeks.

Everytime I reconcile myself that surely there's only one in there, I read a post like this and my paranoia increases...

and obviously your story proves that an u/s won't necessarily prove anything.

Good luck!!
