Anyone else having twins in 2019?

At this stage I am? Or at least I was on my first ultrasound. As far as I know I am nearly 10 weeks with DCDA twins. But have been waiting for my first OB appointment on Thursday to see how things are going. If going ok, will be “due” ie. 38 weeks mid August. How about you?

I am due with DCDA twins at the end of April. I am starting to get very scared!

Congratulations! That isn’t long now Mum-Mum! What equipment have you bought? Do you have other children?

I have one other child, they are very excited. We still had baby stuff from the first time but have needed to upgrade our pram, get more car seats (really hoping they all fit in our current car), a friend gave us a second cot, we got a swing and need to replace bottles etc because I feel like new babies deserve not to use things that have been in storage for ages. We have more clothes than I know what to do with thanks to hand me downs. And I got better wraps, I hated the ones we used the first time around. Medical appointments have cost way more than anticipated.

Yes it sounds like so many scans!!! I am 11 weeks tomorrow and so tired/over morning sickness. I have 2 other children so will have 4 under 5. It’s still sinking in but was nice to see both bubs on scan last week doing ok.
