Twins! I'm a little scared
Wed, 06-17-2009 - 2:28pm

yesterday I had my ultrasound and we saw two heartbeats! As exciting and wonderful as it is I got a little worried about carrying twins at 40. Does anyone know of any good articles or websites that have info about multiples at 40+? Google didn't really come up with much.

I'm not sure if you have checked out the Pregnant with Multiples board, but that might be a good place to start:

I would also recommend the book "When You're Expecting Twins, Triplets or Quads" by

Congratulations! Twice! That is so exciting, but I can see how it would be a little frightening at the same time, regardless of age. I don't know that it would be much different than when you were younger, except that perhaps you might be even more tired. I hope your pregnancy goes really well, do keep us posted on how you are doing.
