Tell us about your twins and how you are feeling?
Do they move independently?
Do they stay to one side or the other or move around alot?
Are they fraternal or identical?
Did you get any u/s pics yet? I'd LOVE to see twins in utero!
How are you dealing with the shock, are you guys ready? Will you be a SAHM?
Are you twice as sick still?

Thanks for thinking of me Cyndee

Tell us about your twins and how you are feeling? Being preggo with twins is definitely a different experience than a singleton. I have never been so big and tired in my life!!

Do they move independently? Yes, they move independently more than they do together. It seems someones always moving in there. About once or twice a day I'll feel both of them moving together. It's crazy having so many limbs in my body! lol

Do they stay to one side or the other or move around alot? They have they're own "spots". One is more to the left and on the bottom and the other is on the right but she's laying horizontally accross my belly. My ribs are extremely sore from stretching to fit two babies. My waist started at a 26 and it is now a 44!! Yikes

Are they fraternal or identical? We are suspecting fraternal because they do run in my family. However, we won't know for absolute sure until they're born.

Did you get any u/s pics yet? I'd LOVE to see twins in utero! I do have a bunch of pics but they only show one baby at a time. They always just label them baby A and baby B. I just got my desktop running so I will TRY to remember to get some pics on here already. I know, they're long overdue!

How are you dealing with the shock, are you guys ready? Will you be a SAHM?
Are you twice as sick still? The shock is gone. We are nothing but excited now! I cannot wait to see and hold my girls. We feel really lucky to be blessed with two little girls We're pretty much ready. All we really need are the crib mattresses. And really we don't even need them before the babies come because they'll be rooming with us for a while. Basically, we're ready! I'm still sick but with my meds it's not so bad. I've thrown up once everyday this week but I don't feel sick all day long anymore.

Honestly, I really dislike being pregnant. I don't hate it, but I don't like it either. I love the excitement of expecting but I really could live without all the sickness, aches, pains, hemroids, etc. I'm 26 weeks and have begun counting down the days. I'm hoping to make it to 37 weeks and deliver vaginally (possibly no epi). I don't want to be induced or have a C section. Of course whatever needs to happen I will except it but my goal is a vaginal delivery

I'll get Chris to take some pics of me this weekend and try to get them up for you guys. I will warn you though, I am HUGE!!! lol

Congrats... I would love to a comparison belly shot. If you don't mind. One when you were pregnant with Jake and now with twins. IF you don't mind...

My cousin had her twins vaginal... good luck with it.

OMG I couldn't not imagine birthing 2 twins without an epi Good luck!
I would be a huge stress ball about money and managing 3 kids. You sound like you are up for it!

Good to hear an update from you....I think I missed that you are having girls or I just forgot. I'd love to see some pics of you and the girls.

I would love to see a belly shot of you! I hope that you will be able to get the vaginal birth you want. Are you doing anything to prepare for a NCB? I recommend reading Ina May's Guide to Childbirth. It's a great book- informative and inspiring

Courtney: I've just been reading as much about twin NCB that I can. When I was in labor with Jake I didn't get the epi until I was 7cm and even then I refused it. The nurse told me it was my last chance and I freaked out a bit and decided to get it. I won't be disappointed if I don't get a NCB but I really think I can do it. We shall see

I have the house to myself today starting around 4:30pm. The boys are going over to DH's step dad's to watch the super bowl so I'm going to use that time to get some pics up Thanks for thinking of me and the girls.

I also recommend Ina May's Guide to Childbirth. Some other good books are The Birth Partner, The Complete Book of Pregnancy and Childbirth, The Doula Book, and Gentle Birth Choices or The Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth (these two books are similar and I like Gentle Birth Choices a little better but The Thinking Woman's Guide is good too).
