I'm only 28.5 weeks, but so far, I can't complain too much!

Had some terrible fatigue and morning sickness for the second and third month, but by week 16-17, I had it kicked. I personally think I just wasn't eating enough, because when I could eat, I felt good! (Also was having some ketones in my urine...that is no longer a problem, as I like food again!) Also had crazy food aversion too, nothing ever sounded good, and leafy greens made me gag. Haha.

As a result, I didn't start gaining any weight until I was 16 weeks (in fact, I lost 10 pounds in the second month). From there, I have gained a healthy 30 pounds.

Once I kicked the morning sickness and fatigue, I felt awesome, I hardly even felt pregnant, and I didn't even have a visible bump until week 18. I wasn't the least bit uncomfortable until maybe two weeks ago, and now my uterus and babies are crowding me. Just a bit of trouble getting comfortable on a couch or in bed, though. Also very uncomfortable to bend over, haha.

As far as complications? Zero. I think my blood pressure randomly goes up sometimes, but I just sit or lay down until it goes away completely. (I took a 35 minute break at work today, oops. )

Doc wanted me to go on leave at 28 weeks, but I told him I felt pretty good still, so I just cut down my hours to 20-24 a week (as well as shorter shifts), and I'm planning on going on leave at 32 weeks. My coworkers keep telling me, Oh, you're going to be on bed rest I bet! And crap like that. I just give them an annoyed look and say, ""

I'm sitting here at 39 weeks pregnant wondering when labor will start? How's that for problem free?

I did go out of work at 34 weeks b/c my BP was starting to rise. That seemed to do the trick. I was stubborn and hadnt cut back hours yet and probably should have.

My complaints are being huge, having ginormous swollen feet, getting up to pee multiple times a night, and stretch marks that exploded at 38 weeks.

I am still able to drive, take care of my daughter, attempt house work, go shopping, errands, etc.

It's been harder than with a singleton and I have had a lot more monitoring than I would have liked - but its overall been low key.

I had a wonderful pregnancy considering. I was not on bedrest although I didn't get around real quick the last several weeks. I did have issues with shortness of breath but a good sturdy back brace took care of that. No high BP, GD, pre-e, nothing. A problem free pregnancy really.

I delivered my twins at 36 weeks at home. Even the delivery went wonderful. The best out of all 6 pregnancies.

I gained 39 pounds total and lost 25 of it the day they were born.

I had a teriffic, easy twin pregnancy. No morning sickness, not tired, teary or emotional. I was induced at 38 weeks because of my dd who has a heart condition, not because of any health issues. I did have a bit of elevated blood pressure toward the end, and some swelling, but nothing that particularly bothered the doctors. I did end up with a c-sec because baby a's cord prolapsed, and baby b's placenta partially abrupted, otherwise, nobody would have had a problem with a vaginal delivery. I felt good, had a lot of energy until about the last two weeks, but still managed to do quite a bit. I worked on the day that I was induced (I work FTOH) and never had any bed rest.

I totally love being pregnant, and was truly blessed to have an easy pregnancy. I feel for all those who do not, for whatever reason, and I know that I am really really lucky. Good luck to you, hopefully you can have a great, easy pregnancy too!

yes, mine went realy well. I had horrendous swelling for the last month that last until they were 3 wks old, but other than that no problems to speak of. L&D went awesome too (1.5 hours, no drugs, no interventions at all).

Other than being ginormously huge, I had no issues or problems-took my dd to the mall the day before they were born, and scared a whole lot of people!!!! Mine came at 38 and 1/2 weeks, and were 7 lbs 12 oz. and 6 lbs 3 oz.
