Shocked, happy, surprised, super nervous. I worry SO much about miscarriage, having problems with one of them, early delivery, NICU time, problems after birth. I am going to do anything and everything I can to keep these babies in as much as possible, eat as healthy as I can, and pray and hope that they both stay healthy, grow, and bake until at least 36/37 weeks.

DH is still in utter shock. He's nervous about having to finally get a van (we were going to squeeze #3 in our car), moving our kiddos out of our room (they both sleep side-carred to our bed in our room) and dealing with two babies. He doesn't do well with lots of crying, but love toddlers. So hopefully we can survive the baby stage.

I just am praying and hoping they are healthy, and stay that way, and are born healthy. It's all I'm hoping for at this point! It's very, very nerve racking.

I think I am going to stay here! They will only let me get to 38 weeks before they induce (so I would be induced on or just after September 30th). So they COULD end up being October babies, even though I think they will end up coming in September (hopefully!). But since I will be as far along as the rest of you ladies, I would like to stay here.

How come they would induce at 38 weeks?

Bring on the fat pants. I'll be ten weeks tomorrow, and I haven't gained any weight, but my regular pants are just too tight so I've put them all away.

Apparently twins grow a tad faster than single babies, and their placenta 'goes bad' faster. So a twin placenta at 38 weeks is comparable to a singleton placenta at 40/41 weeks. So to make sure the placenta is delivered healthy and it doesn't stop giving what it needs, they will not let you go past 38 weeks.

Does anyone else feel like the 20 week ultrasound is a million years away? It seems like forever because I'm so anxious to start sorting and getting baby stuff, and putting together my diaper stash. Anyone else?
