I just never felt so nervous about something happening in my previous pregnancy. I just can't get over that there is two in there and I am so scared to death there will not be two the next time I go for an ultrasound in 3-4 weeks. I am too early (8 weeks) for a doppler and don't know how good I would be at finding two heartbeats anyway. Everyone says I shouldn't worry but how can I not? I actually worried when I wasn't sick for a couple days because as miserable as it is, I take this awful morning (actually all day) sickness as a sign that both babies are doing well. I try to convince myself that their heartbeats were good and since I haven't had any cramping or bleeding it SHOULD be fine. I just have read too much about seeing two one week and a couple weeks later there is only one. ugh. This is going to be a long few months til I feel confident in this. I just picture having to tell the people who know it is twins that I lost one and I just lose it

I worried my WHOLE twin pregnancy about something happening to one or both of the babies. Just like with everything else in a twin pregnancy is double, double the hormones, double the MS, double the whatever...you also double the worry. It's really really hard to not worry. Unfortunately, with mine, I never figured out how to just relax.
With that said, I have two healthy 5 year old boys who are driving me crazy today. LOL. The only complication I had was pre-term labor at 31 weeks. They were born at 34 weeks, 5 pounds each, and perfect!
Just do your best to keep your mind off of everything you're worried about, and don't read the bad stuff you come across!
