I am so relieved/excited! I had really thought I was loosing my mind. Throughout this pregnancy I have told people how I didn't know what was wrong with me that none of my pregnancies had felt like this before. Constantly tired (for the first 2 months I was still nursing our toddler) and throwing up daily that just would NOT go away. So when I saw the two little heads bopping around on the ultrasound I was sooooo excited to see I was/am not either crazy or just grown incredible lazy!
We found out they are both boys during the ultrasound, and so far both boys look great. They have one outer bag of waters but have separate inner bags but the technician could not tell if there was 1 or 2 placentas yet. Some how during all my vomiting the guys have managed to grow really really well and both are "normal" size for a 17 week pregnancy.
Although this will make babies 6 & 7 for us (and also our last, dh is getting snipped) I feel so unprepared and nervous, I fear I will be aggravating all you ladies with a million questions soon.

and yes, I blog. thumb.gif

Ask away, that's why we are all here! Not that we will have answers but we can definately understand what you going through. Our twin boys are #3 & 4 and a complete surprise pregnancy.

Congratulations and welcome to the forum!!!! My twins were also a "surprise!" and turned into "SUPRISE AGAIN!!!" at our 20 week ultrasound. They were #5 and 6 for our family, and also our last children.

Thank you all.
My head is full of silly questions that I know no one can answer because it varies so much from person to person. Like PLEASE tell me I will stop vomiting soon, will my old maternity clothes fit this time around, should I cave into my desire and buy a ton of matching clothes or is that going to mess the poor little guys up....
LOL But I will "try" to focus on the really tough questions. Thanks for the encouragement and well wishes this is such an exciting yet nerve tingling experience for us.
