Expecting Twins

Recommended Posts

Bella81

At my seven week scan I found out that I'm expecting TWINS!! Very exciting as we were TTC for about 10+ months... not totally unexpected as twins run in my family!!

 

After seeing my obstetrician for the first time, I was advised to attend a different hospital to the one that I had my heart set on... will be attending RPA- NSW. If they do come early which is a possibility... it has better facilities.... so much to consider!

 

Anyone else due in August 2012 and expecting Twins?? Would love to hear from you... :rolleyes:

Congrats from another twin Mum! It's rather exciting when you find out...

 

Definately don't belong in the due in Aug group but couldn't pass a twin post.

 

Are they identical or fraternal?

Hello there!! :D

 

Identical... how about you? Is this your first pregnancy?

 

Have you started shopping for your Twins? I will be having my 12 week scan next Friday and after that I am keen to start shopping... I have researched some double prams etc... just overwhelming thinking about how much stuff I will need...

 

When are you due?

My OB told me the same thing (may be same OB). I had them at RPA and was glad I did. I was admitted at 33w for steroids and back at 34w4d and back again the next day and has them then. They were in the NICU there and they were great!

 

Congratulations!

Thank you Manicmum... very reassuring! Congratulations on the birth of your twins... hope everything is going well for you!

 

My OB is Dr Morris... not sure if you have heard of him? He seems really professional and RPA does have a fantastic reputation!

 

Just focussing on the 12th week scan and then I will take it from there... but I do feel very blessed!

Hi Bella!

 

I just found out on Friday that we're expecting twins. They measured right on target at 8 weeks - can't believe there were two heartbeats! I thought the US guy was TEASING!

 

This isn't my first pregnancy - I had a MC in October (found out at 10 weeks that we only got to 5...), so I'm ecstatic to have seen healthy little heartbeats at 8 weeks. I still can't get over the fact that there's TWO though.

 

Ours are in the same 'house' as the US guy put it - so I assume this means identical, but I could be wrong. There were two yolk sacs as well, but that's about all the info I have now - will know more when I see my GP tomorrow.

 

At the moment we have an EDD of August 24th, but he did mention that they sometimes recommend an EDD of 38weeks which would be 10th August.

 

Hope you're still doing well - it's so exciting! When in August are you due?

 

xx.

Hi Bella,

 

I too am expecting twins and will be at RPA, but due in June this year. I think someone mentioned the Expecting Multiples thread to you. There are a few of us on there at different stages of twin pregnancy so it's a good place to chat to others. Mums of twins that were part of the group in pregnancy drop in from time to time too which is great.

 

It's called Expecting Multiples and it's up to #112 at the moment.

 

Good luck and a big congratulations on your pregnancy!!!

Hi Ladies! I am new to the forum thing & am still working out how to use this but I think i've stumbled aross a twin forum?

 

I am very happily (after much loss and patience) expecting fraternal twins (yay!). I am nearly 14 weeks along, just had my 12 week scan and all is well, so far so good :D

 

I wanted to ask if any of you know if it's normal to be showing already? I have quite a small frame as well...or I am wandering if i am just very bloated!?

 

Has anyone else out there "popped" yet?

Jen

Hi Bella,

 

Congratulations, I too am expecting boy/girl twins in August and going to RPA also! This thread looks quite old now but just came accross this site and didn't expect to find other twins due in August!

 

 

Well good luck with it all, would love to hear from any other twin mummas!
