Congratulations! Twins are definitely exciting, and I'm sure after your wait even more so. Here's to a happy and healthy pregnancy.

By the way, my name is Rebecca, my DH is Jon and we are currently at 25 weeks with what the doctors believe to be identical boys.

That is amazing!! Identical boys. SO exciting! Thanks for the welcome.


I can tell you that even though we did IVF, I was NOT expecting what we saw this morning :)

Welcome! I'm Rebecca and I'm also expecting twins. We have 2 boys oldest is 5 and 2nd is almost 1! We thought we were done but surprise I'm 7 weeks preg with twins. I'm supper excited and want a healthy 9 months..I'm sure you understand!

So a question for ya.. I'm due Oct 3rd and I'm 7wks 3 days. Is this an old post? Forgive me for being silly

Hugs,
Rebecca

Edit to add the real reason I'm asking is if you meant to say Oct 13 then you have to join me on the Oct EC! I'm the only one having twins so far there and I can't wait to have a buddy to go through this with!

Welcome Caroline, congratulations! I'm so glad you've found us. I'm Elissa, I have a 3 y/o ODD and almost 1 y/o b/g twins. :-)

I'm going to guess that's likely the end date, not the actual due date, KWIM? I was due March 14 but they were born March 2...

Hmm...no I'm due Sept 13th. The doctor said that it's a 36 week period instead of 40, so he told us 9/13...

There are a lot of us that went beyond 36 weeks, and even the guidelines are changing as to when it's really best to deliver twins. You might be shocked if they change the date in the middle on you, so I'm just letting you in on the scoop. ;-)

Thats neat! I hope you didn't feel attached at all that wasn't my intention! I love talking to moms in the same boat as me. This is going to be a fun and exciting journey.

Have you been able to wrap your head around it all yet?? Do you have any changes you need to make in your house or cars?

We had a minivan and just traded it in for a new Camry HAHA now we have 2 cars that seat 5 and will have a family of 6. Not to mention my oldest who is only 5 would have to sit in the front all the time! not so safe really. So we are looking at other vehicles that will work for us. Good times already HEHE

Hugs,

Rebecca

I bought a two door convertible, two months later conceived ODD. I looked into trading it in on a Charger, got pregnant with twins. I wound up with an SUV. :-P
