TWINS!!!! oh my goodness, two little heartbeats in there!

 

we are all in shock, and i have so many questions and concerns. i worried so much with one little one in there, how am i going to deal with keeping two in there?

 

but, my daughter has said since the beginning that there were "1,2 babies...superbabies" so i shouldn't have been too surprised.

I'm a little envious :) How exciting and in reading your "how do you know your ok?" thread, I see you didn't have any extra symptoms to make you wonder if there were two.

 

Your are blessed Mama!

My heart skipped a beat when I read your post, though, because I didn't even consider twins a possibility.  If I have twins, I'll flip as they'll be number 4 and 5!

Congrats, what a wonderful surprise!

 

My dd has also been saying I have two babies too. It was slightly freaking me out a bit, as she is so persistent about it I am not sure what to think. She told me I was pregnant before I told her, and now she's insisting there are two babies. I'm sticking to the idea that it is wishful thinking. We don't do ultrasounds at all, so it would be some time before we would know anyway.

About when would you know if you don't do an ultrasound?  I'm not sure if I'll get the ultrasound or not, but I'm anxious about twins.  I just want to know!  :D

Congrats! Twins are fun. 

One of my boys (one of the twins) asked me if I had a baby in my belly the day before I found out I was pregnant. Then after we told him, he said it was going to be a boy and a girl. I'm wondering if he knows more than we do. I'm glad you have found out already because I have been wondering how soon we could check to see how many are in there.

I'm excited for you!

Congrats! I'm kinda sad that I'm pretty positive I'm not having twins and this was my last chance, because that would be too many if I have them next pregnancy. But at the same time, at least I won't risk out of the birth center.

Congrats on the surprise!!!  How many weeks were/are you at the u/s?  Did you expect anything like this or were you totally shocked?!

i was 6/5 wks @ u/s, they didn't see 2 sacs yet, but they're hoping that will show on the next u/s.  i was totally shocked, but all along when we talked about it with our dd, she said there were 2 babies, 1,2...superbabies. so somehow i had an inkling.

 

but i'm doubly sick. really really sick. and tired.

Congratulations!

They only saw 1 sac, so does that mean that they are identical?

Hi...congratulations to you!  I also found out this week that I am pregnant with twins.  Needless to say, I also was not expecting this news.  These would be my first babies (I've had losses in the past so it's hard to get excited so early into the pregnancy).  I am just trying to remain calm and see what happens.  Good luck.
