I have an amazing family and support system, so I do not have many worries on that front. I am trying to keep a positive and relaxed attitude during this pregnancy and enjoy every moment! I'll be starting my HypnoBabies classes in May, and am really looking forward to them. I'm hoping they'll prepare me somewhat for what's about to come in a few months! I'm so happy to be here and am looking forward to meeting lots of other mommies-to-be due around the same time!

Hello! I am new to this, but am looking forward to getting to know other mamas who are due around the same time as me!

 

* Name: Jenny
* EDD: August 19

* Age: 30
* Location: Florence, Massachusetts
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: 1 cycle of actual trying at the correct time of month. We weren't preventing for about 3 cycles before that.
* What number child is this for you: First and Second! Twin girls!
* Family: My wonderful husband, Brett. We will be married 2 years on May 16th.

* Birth plans/preferences: I had always thought I would have a homebirth, but there isn't anyone in this area who will go along with that for twins. Current plan is to stay at home for as long as possible, then go to the hospital, which is a 3 minute drive from our house. I hope to have a natural birth.

* Anything else you'd like to share: I'm excited to be a mama to twins! I will admit that I had always pictured having one at a time, but the idea of twins has started to grow on me (literally). babyf.gifbabyf.gif

Jenny, a specially warm welcome to you, just because I am excited to see someone else in the group due with twins, three days after me!  (Also, our conception - 1st try to really nail the time, after two or three months of no prevention; length of marriage; inability to avoid a hospital birth, but desire to minimize the time there and keep it as natural and calm as we can; and starting the family with a bang are very similar.)  I hope all's going well for you!

Julie, how exciting that we are due only three days apart! You are having a boy and a girl? It does sound like we have a lot in common. I am also very exciting about being a first time mama to twins and just watching the amazing connection that they will have as they grow. The things that I've always been excited about doing with my first baby (breastfeeding, babywearing, cloth diapering/ECing), I am hoping I will still get to do with twins, at least a little bit!

 

Are you nervous about the birth? I am trying not to be, but there is some worry there. The hospital that I am planning to deliver at has a requirement that with twins, delivery is done in the operating room. I get tense in hospitals in general, so I am worried that the switch to the operating room will freak me out. If all is going well, we may be able to avoid it. I do feel lucky that we live in a fairly progressive area, and as long as my husband and I are able to stand up for what we want, I feel confident that it will be respected.

Yes - one of each!  love.gif   And congratulations - we have twin nieces, and they're marvelous fun - though twins seem exciting, in any pairing!  I really am happy that we not only get both of them, but our twins will have each other from the very beginning.

 

You're right we may have to adjust our desires in some ways, but I really feel like we shouldn't have to give up any of those longed-for approaches to their care, just because there are two.  (Except, in my case: I thought I would co-sleep with one baby, but there are several logistical considerations that makes sleeping the two in one crib, near our bed, seem the best option to me.)  With diapering, I might start with a diaper service, and then get inexpensive pre-folds, trying to buy enough not to do laundry every day.  wink1.gif   Milk production issues might mean harder work, or needing to see if I could get donated breast milk, and certainly I can understand someone not being able to produce enough and supplementing in other ways; though I am hopeful my female family members' overproduction for single babies means I won't struggle with feeding two.  Since my husband is happy to wear a baby, we can definitely do that, often, even if I should find wearing two at once hard.  I've heard wearing one while holding one is also a good option.... and I'm certainly up for trying both at once!

 

Sadly, the move from labor room to O.R. in all twin deliveries is the policy at my hospital, too.  I am afraid that, though I am used to hospitals, the move from a quiet room where I can control the lighting and bring things that make it feel more intimate and personal, to a different, bright, highly medical room stuffed with people is just going to be stressful.  And public.  Very public.  I am trying to think my way through that so I am able to be calmer, when the time comes.  I asked, not my doctor, but someone at the hospital, familiar with their practice, who said it was unavoidable, there.  (May you have better luck!)  I'll check with my doctor, too, but admit I cried about that, in a way I didn't about merely being in a hospital, and denied some of their low-risk alternatives.

 

I am a little nervous - with two babies, no experience, and a strong desire to avoid so much that's 'routine'. We've hired a doula, whose experience and familiarity with birth make me feel much more at ease, vs. having only my sweet, lovely, completely inexperienced husband, who might panic, if we're alone!   scared.gif    As the presence of a woman with good experience in birth is said to correlate with less pain perception, less stress, shorter labor, and fewer interventions, I figured, though it guarantees nothing, it's one asset I really want in trying to make the birth as natural, healthy, and uncomplicated, as I can.  smile.gif   It'll also reassure me, so I feel able to stay home, longer.  (She'll come, here, first.)  And I am busily stocking up on labor aids and comforting things for use at home and at the hospital, trying to be ready early, and as prepared as I can be as far as general knowledge and things I can do to help labor or ease its pains.  Knowing, not what it will be like, but ways I can respond, makes me feel very much more peaceful and happier.  But that's definitely an effort to manage my anxiety!

* What number child is this for you: 3

We've chosen not to find out the sex so it will be a surprise at birth. stork-suprise.gif

Name: (whatever you would like to be called or like us to know)-  Jordan

EDD: 8/28

Age:24

Location: Another Portland, OR mama, although we'll be relocating to Denver, CO shortly after baby makes his debut

How long it took to you to get your BFP: Baby was a surprise, but we got the BFP on New year's day

What number child is this for you: 2nd baby! DD is 4.5 years old

Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): DF Mark (26), DD Clementine (4.5) and Malcolm will be joining us sometime soon(ish). Plus two cats, Wash and Scout.

Birth plans/preferences: Waterbirth! I prefered to labor at home with my daughter and got to the birthing center around 7cm. Not sure how it will go this time. I was a single mama with DD, and I'm very excited to give birth with the partnership of someone I love so much. I think it will be really incredible. That being said, DD's birth was a dream.

Anything else you'd like to share: We're looking forward to keeping our boy intact, cloth diapering, co-sleeping, baby wearing, and breastfeeding. All the things I loved with DD. I'm so excited to join you August mamas!  You seem like such a tight-knit, supportive group.


Girl absolutely in love with boy and our DD (11/06), DS1 (08/11) and DS2 (brand new!)
