Hey all,

Just wanted to let you know that I might be joining the twin club...I have a quick u/s tomorrow to determine for sure, but at first MW appointment on Sep. 29 I was a good 4 weeks ahead, now as of my MW appt yesterday, I'm 17 weeks, measuring a good 23 weeks. Yikes! I wasn't going to get an u/s either but I just don't know if I can wait any longer to know!

So, for anyone who's interested...I'll let you know tomorrow-ish what the outcome is.

BTW - this is a huge deal up here in Canada, since in my province, a diagnosis of twins means an automatic transfer to an OB. Bye bye home water birth, bye bye cushy MW appointments - hello medical system.

Maybe I'll just move to Mexico or something

Oh, mama! I'm excited to hear what the outcome is. I wish you could deliver your twins at home. Maybe wait as long as possible to go in once labor has started? I don't know how it goes with twins...Anyway, I'm hoping you get the outcome you are wishing for!

Thanks for the replies ladies - here's the news:

One little stinker in there. Sex unknown. But a big baby for his/her age!

Well, I can't say I am not a little disappointed, but at least now I don't have to go shopping for a different vehicle!

Another nice thing is you get to keep your midwife.

Congrats on one healthy, growing baby!

I understand your disappointment as that is what happened to us with my last pregnancy (we do IVF and transfered 2). So give yourself permission to grieve a little for the life that could of been and then you can fully embrace the life that is! ((hugs))
