Waiting:

There are 9 now! WOW....what a month!

AND NOW.......there at 7!!!!!!!!

And NOW there are 6!!!!


I think there are there 5 of us now? How coool!!!

So when are all of you due? And what are you predictions on delivery? "Having Twins and more" by Elizabeth Noble is a great non-medicalized book about twins. She talks about visualizing your babies weights and when they will be born and making it happen. Soooo what is your visualization?

I'm due 8/25.

My visualization is that both babies will be 6-6.5 lbs and I will deliver at 37 weeks (so about August 4 or 5th). With my surro-daughter born last August, I was off by only a day on my vizualization of her birth, and 10 mins on the time! (I said 2 pm and she was born at 1:50 pm!) My OB was amazed! He said he wished all his patients could do that....and well have babies during the day too, that was nice.

My IM says August 10th is coming to her as the birthday. So, we'll see who is right!

Congrats to the twin mommies! I also wanted to suggest Dr. Luke's book "When you are expecting twins, triplets, or quads". She encourages a big weight gain but there's a lot of good advice in there too. I read it cover to cover more than once during my twin pg! Congrats to you all, twins are so much fun!!

It's possible I might have twins. Though I won't know for awhile as we won't do an u/s unless we have another reason to.

So I'll lurk here a bit

Yes! I have Dr. Luke's too! Elizabeth Noble references Dr. Luke and her book frequently in Having Twins and also recommends the 24 lbs by 24 weeks with twins and a total of 50-60 for twins EVEN if you're 'fluffy' to begin with. She says that is the number one predictor of going to term or near--big weight gain and LOTS of protein 130-150 g a day for twins. I'm reeeeallly trying!

Angela, what makes you think you've got twins? I think it would so neat to have them naturally! This is via IVF, so it was a pretty good chance there would be twosies.

Well, there is a huge family history on DH's side. And I had a flash that it was twin boys... could have been total bs. Never know though.

I figure better to be mentally ready

Oh yes....better to be ready! When I was pg with my second, my older son kept saying it was twins (and I was a single mom at the time) so I was soo freaked out! Then, at 17w I was measuring 22w and they sent me for an US to rule out twins, I was even more freaked out....but...in the end...I just delivered a 2 ounce shy of 8 lbs baby at 34 weeks! He was over 12 lbs by his due date, so he'd just have just come out 3 mos old LOL

My latest EDD is Aug 1 and earliest is July 23, depending on what formula is used. I'm hoping for 37-38 weeks bare minimum with NO PTL. I'll be happy with any time in July, but I would prefer later than July 22 (because I'm a freak and want Leo babies). My actual guess is July 17-18, though. Ooo, 7-17-07 would be cool. Yep, I'm a dork.

Weight-wise for the babes, I'm visualizing 6-6.5 minimum.

Weight-wise for me, I'm hoping for about 50lbs bare minimum. I've gained approx. 12 lbs so far (hoping for another growth spurt soon!) and I'm 13 weeks.

I definitely need to add the Noble and Luke books to my wish list. I don't have anything on gestating twins yet! But I do know about eating lots of healthy food, esp. protein, and trying to gain as much as possible early on (healthfully, of course!), so I'm not completely floundering.

I read this thread because twins run in my family, in fact, someone has had a set of twins in every generation except mine so far :

Don't think this one is multiples, I only heard one heartbeat at my MW appt. With my luck I'll have twins when we decide it's time for ONE more baby...

OMG, we have four girls and decided to go for one more. Think I'll have 3 boys! I'm already wondering if I'm carrying twins again.

I did want to say congrats to all you twin mamas. From one twin mama to another.

congrats twin moms!

I wanted to read the Noble book.. it had terrible reviews on amazon which made it look great haha.. all the mainstream moms were so offended at the authers views on circ, cows milk, breastfeeding and whatnot I was like wow this book must be cool. I can't find it to buy and it would have been 6-8 weeks before I got it if I bought it online though!

I hope you all can be as lucky with your twin pregnancies as I have with mine.. I am almost 38 weeks now and going strong..

Awesome Heather! My IM bought the book for me--I think through Amazon.com. I wonder why it's not easily available? Not popular enough to keep in print I guess LOL It is really great. Maybe you can read it post pregnancy And reaffirm all the good stuff you did!

Congrats on being 38w and going There was a mama pregnant around the time I was with my surro-daughter who went to term and had almost 9 & 10 lbs babies (bigger than her singletons if I remember right) at home!

Subscribing!!!! We just found out on Wednesday that we're having twins! I had suspected for a couple weeks (measuring way ahead with correct dates), so I went in to get a quick check. Now that I've recovered from a near heart attack, I'm ready to get reading.

I understand visualization is so necessary for this. I visualize big babies, both head down, born at 40+ weeks.

So glad there are others going through this with me!

We don't have TV, but I've heard it was great! I might try to see if I can get it on DVD to watch on the computer

I had my last US today until mid-pregnancy structural one. Both beans looking great!

The pic is pointing to their little arms 'waving' at us. One is head up and the other down in the picture.

Hmm, I think I might hang out here with you ladies for a while. I am definetly having "twin feelings" this time around. I have to wait on a confirmation u/s though because the Army doesn't know what to do with me! Since I'm not receiving prenatal care through the Army's medical system they didn't want to put me in their computer because then it would start tracking me and look like I'm not being seen (which I won't be, but...) I'm suppose to know by the end of this week when I can get in.

But in the meantime, here are my feelings/systoms. Tell me what ya'll think!
~I'm huge! I look the same at 10 weeks as I did at 20 weeks w/ dd. And I have been able to wear my pre-preggo jeans for a while so I know it not still extra fluff left over from her. I haven't worn regular pants since 6 weeks. Everyone asks me if its twins when they find out I'm *only* 10 weeks (tomorrow technically) But its obvious that I'm preggo.
~I actually got some morning sickness this time and I had none w/ dd.
~I am constantly hungry; I eat practically every hour but no weight gain yet (and I haven't been eating the greatest food all the time either!)
~When I was 7 weeks I poked around and measured where I'm pretty sure my uterus was and it was measuring 11 cm. I haven't done it since, though; maybe I need to go home and poke around some more tonight.
~And for the past week or so, I've felt something, lol!! I know its still early and it might be gas, but I keep getting those little fluttery feelings in two different places, but they're the same places, ya know? Like just below my belly button off to the left, and a few inches below my belly button but off to the right. I can tell when its gas bubbles, because its all over the place and random, but these two spots are consistently the same.
~The one thing that weirded me out from the begining was when I took that first test (I took 3 just to be sure, lol!) I was 13 dpo and it was about 8 am so I had been up for 3 hours, pee'd several times, drank a bunch of water and had worked out already before I took it. That thing was positive in the time it took for me to pee on it and turn it over to put the cap back on. I mean bright, bold, no mistaking it purple line in the result window. It showed up before the control lines did! With dd, I tested at 10 dpo first thing in the morning and it was so light that both ex-DH and I were in the bathroom squinting and turning it this way and that way to see if there was really a line there or if we were just imagining it.

Maybe I'm just over reacting. I kind of hope I'm not because by now I've gotten kind of attached to the idea of carrying twins so I want it to be true. Hmm, guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Holly-They're so cute. And since I'm due 2 days before you, my little bean (or beans) should look about the same!

I dunno Trish! All could be possible symptoms! You're TS right? and didn't use any fertility drugs? Anything is possible!

I think early HPT's is a pretty unreliable method as every emby produces different hcg. I tested positive at 7dpo with my second ds. I was just SURE I was pregnant. I was single and I knew exactly the last time I'd DTD so it couldn't be a mistake. This time, with twins, I was 14 dpo before I got anything which is just insane comparing to all the people on my surro-board. I was so sure we'd had another failed transfer.

They say you get bigger subesquent times. It doesn't apply for me usually, or hasn't, though this time it probably will. Who knows!

With my second one, I was sent for an US at 17w because I was measuring 22w at 17w. He's just a huge kiddo. He was 2 oz shy of 8 lbs at 34 weeks!

Well, Trish, with my 2nd babe, I popped out so fast. I looked about 5 months when I was only about 8 weeks. They say that you show faster with your second, since everything is already stretched from your first, and that you tend to feel movement earlier, since you know what it feels like from the first time. A lot of first time moms mistake early movement for gas, and don't clue in that it's the baby until later on. The second time around, I felt my little bean moving about a month earlier than with my ds.

But, you've got a lot of symptoms of twins, so maybe!! From your signature, I take it you're doing a surrogacy? (That's so cool.) What do your intended parents think about twins?

Take care!

I know, I keep telling myself that every pregnancy is different and maybe I'm just associating all these things with twins because for some reason I really think it is twins. I don't know why, but something in my brain keeps saying "twins, TWINS!" Both the father and I have a family history of twins and of course it should be our 'turn' for them since no one else in our generation has had them yet.

I probably would chalk it up to just over reacting and making a big deal out of nothing, but then I keep feeling the two different movements. They're starting to become more frequent, but still consistent in their placement. They're far enough apart that I know it can't be one baby doing it, or else I'm a lot farther than I thought! I felt dd pretty early for a first timer-14 weeks, so I figured I'd feel this one sooner. I guess I just have to wait, too bad I'm one of the most impatient people on earth!

**Yes, I am a TS, but before we did contracts (and thus insems) my boyfriend and I had a 'contraception malfunction' and now here we are. We're still going ahead and treating this like a surrogacy only with "donor" sperm, when its actually a private adoption. My IPs are thrilled either way about having a baby so maybe this all happened for a reason. I haven't told my IPs my twin suspicions just because I don't want to say anything then have it turn out that I'm wrong. When we first started talking my IM said they would love if they were blessed with twins so I don't want to get them hoping for it, too. I'd rather just suprise them with the news.

Maybe its karma biting me in the rear. When I first started seriously thinking about surrogacy I told my BF that I would love to have surro-twins, because then I get to have the fun twin pregnancy but not have to take care of two babies at once (I don't know why I'd think it be fun but I've always wanted to carry twins!) Way to go for opening my big mouth!

Well, I don't know if it's twins or what, but I'm 11 weeks and my fundal height is only four fingertips (4cm?) below my belly button. And I'm definitely feeling movement, like wiggly worms whenever I'm still and think about it. Also the left side of my uterus is more pronounced, like more forward. I don't know if my uterus is just off to the side, or if there's a baby towards the top left and one towards the back right? It's not my bladder, because I had just peed. We'll just have to wait and see. I did have a huge 9 pound baby the first time, so I know I could just be really stretched out...

Tis the season, for hot apple cider!

Mine did that too, for a while! The left side would stick out more than the right. So weird! But it's evened out now.

My fundal height is the same same as it would be with one. Though I do feel more 'pooched' out now.

How am I? Trying not to obsess so much about food. I'm really really struggling to get all of the recommended protein. And I'm slowly weaning my 17mo old DS. Totally wanted to CLW, but I'm not gaining any weight and he's stealing all of the calories I'm working so hard to get in!

Other than that, I'm now into some maternity clothes. My friend returned my clothes last week, and she put some of her stuff in there too, so at least I get some "new" clothes for a 3rd pregnancy LOL.

In Asia, it's typical to have a maid/nanny. We had a part-time maid for 5 years and fired her in December, before finding out we had twins. Tomorrow I have a trial run day with a maid to see if we want to hire her for FULL TIME!!!! I am so excited... it's so hard to get the rest I need with 2 toddlers running around. I'm so thankful because we only have to pay $250 a mo for full time... can you imagine what it'd cost in the USA?!?!

CrunchyClark, could you put a "sticky" at the top of this post listing all of the twin moms, "hopeful" due dates, etc.? Our August 2007 DDC is so big, that I'd rather just stick to this one for the most part because I don't have time to wade through the rest of it.

"New to you" clothes are always fun I've always been told to accept ALL donations of maternity clothes even if they aren't your style....you could wear around the house at least and have some 'extras' just in case

Oh my gosh! I cannot IMAGINE how expensive it would be here!!!! HOLY COW! Where in Asia are you?

Yep, I'll fix the main post up You're right....this DDC is huge! Must have been a busy holiday season LOL


MamaRabbit when are you due? Early August? You're about 14 weeks now? Judging by your ticker?

Here is my recent u/s. The doc just did a quickly to check for heartbeats. So, he didn't set up the screen or do any measuring. The babes weren't being cooperative either. So the only double shot we got was the tops of their heads. But you can see the perfect little round noggins in the u/s

This was exactly at 14 weeks.

Awwwwhhh there they are!


So twin mamas, are you planning on finding out the sex? We've never found out before with mine or the surrogacy. I've been reading back and forth and some say you really should with twins because you can begin to differentiate them as individuals rather than just 'the twins'. But then others say it doesn't really matter. What are your thoughts?
