Well, I went today for my US. And apparently a friend jinxed me in a good way because we are having …. IDENTICAL TWINS!!!!! We were so shocked. It never crossed my mind that we would have identical twins. They are both measuring on target and strong heartbeats, 133 for Baby A and 137 for Baby B. You know, that stuff happens to other people. Well, I guess I am one of those people. WOW!!! I can’t stop smiling. We called everyone that knew we were pregnant from IVF the news and they are all thrilled. Now, I have my OB appointment on Friday.

WOW! Congratulations, that is so exciting! How far along are you? Just curious - how can they tell from the u/s that the twins are identical? OH DUH I think I know - they share a gestational sac, is that right?

Thanks. I am 7w2d. The babies are sharing the placenta for sure we just have to figure out if they are sharing the amniotic sac or if each has their own. We also did IVF but with only one embryo so that means they are identical.
