Hi Everyone,
I figured it was time to make an introduction. I'm Melanie. DH is Troy. We have 2 DDs: Kali (10) & Rylie (5). We're expecting twins around October 3rd. We're still reeling from the news. I'm hoping to get lots of advice from BTDT multiple mommas.

Congratulations on the twins! Regarding the shock, I still remember that day as clear as a bell, and that was over 16 months ago.

So far, things are good. Both babies have nice, strong heart beats & they're measuring the same size. I've been on progesterone since ovulation, but I've only got a few more days on it. I'm a bit nervous to come off of it, since I had 3 miscarriages last year. I'm going to see my OB on Monday & for a level 2 u/s on Tuesday, so I'm excited to see how the babies are doing.

Awww, good to hear things are going well so far! I hope the u/s on tuesday goes great!! I used progesterone as well... it was a little nerve wracking stopping it, but the dr was pretty reassuring that the placenta should have picked up production at that point.

I hope things continue to go well for you!

Hey! I remember you from TTCAM! Congratulations! It certainly takes a while to sink in, but you'll get there. Very exciting!

Congratulations! I have twin girls that are now 2 years old. It is a little rough at first but oh so worth it!!
