I am doing very well actually. My m/s is finally starting to go away (not gone entirely, but not everyday either anymore .. woohoo!). I just had my 20 wk appt with my regular OB today and everything is looking good. We still don't know whether Baby 'B' is a boy or girl, but we hope to find out when we go back to the peri again in 2 weeks.

I really don't have any complaints though, everything is going very well. I am starting to notice I can't sit too long though without getting up and moving around. I still haven't gained any weight though, which stuns me, but my doc was not worried about that at all today (I am pretty overweight to begin with). This is the only time in my life I have ever had trouble gaining weight... weird!

How is everyone else?

I'm 12 weeks and I feel great! I'm only pg with a singleton (!), but my twins are 20mos adjusted, so that's gotta count, right? Feeling amazing since 10 weeks, getting hugemongous, getting kicked hard by gdm but that's not new for me. Our big u/s is March 21st

Not prego, but hoping to join the prego ladies soon. I will if things go well. If they go like last time we were ttc, it could be a few years before I'm joining any prego ladies.

I love reading the prego updates. Keep them coming.

Feeling okay...I am starting to "blow up" which is expected, but a little frustrating!! I go for another u/s and appt on Friday so we are just crossing our fingers until then that everything goes well. It seems like time is just crawling, but I am sure once we start doing things to get ready for these girls time will go by faster.

I'm feeling really good! I ended up in L&D a couple days ago because I hadn't felt the girls move at all for more than 12 hours but all is well, they were just having a quiet day I have an u/s on the 1st of Feb to check their growth and an appt on Feb 3 to review the u/s and checkup on things. Hopefully at the u/s they're both still girls! lol.

I am not here often (lose the board often), but I am preggo, so I will respond . I am 11.5weeks and feeling great (when I take my m/s meds lol). Tiredness is letting up a bit (thank god!). I am getting fatter, which is becoming annoying because Maternity pants fit for 5min until they stretch out, and my normal pants don't do up, and piss off the babies when I sit down in the bottom of the zipper digs into my gut. Small issue though, I am sure I will get big enough, soon enough. I have my IPS screening on Friday (ultrasound/blood work). I can't wait to see the babies, as they aren't as blobish anymore. I chase them around with my doppler all the time to make sure they are okay. That thing has been a sanity saver I will say. I don't know when my big u/s is, but I can't wait! Oh, and I am finally telling my dad on Friday. 25yrs old, and scared to tell my Daddy lol...sad.

Hello All

I had two ultrasounds so far and have confirmed Twins with strong heartbeats ! My due date is 9/9/11
But I have a big history of preterm delivery and had to have a early cerclage removal with my last pregnancy.
So we will take this one day at a time.!
My OB has already referred me to a Peri who I will see at 10 weeks
and take it from there !

Hey all I'm about 12.5 weeks pregnant and I'm feeling good. My nausea has started to let up a little bit and I've been eating more then before. My belly is def growing and the dr said I have a 15 weeks uterus right now. No weight gain at all so far, 9 pounds lost actually. We are getting a 3D ultrasound at 16 weeks to find out the genders so that will be Feb 21st....we can't wait!

Sarah, I lost 10 lbs in my first trimester as well. There were only a few food items that I could stomach and I couldn't eat those often. Hopefully you feel good soon and start adding a little weight.

I had my 30 week check-up today and the kids are looking great. I passed my oral glucose tolerance test (ugh) with flying colors and my blood pressure is staying nice and low too. I look full-term and have started outgrowing my maternity clothes already, which is annoying. It is more difficult to move around and I have a hard time sleeping at night.

We are finally getting the nursery set up too and I am so excited! Our next appointment is on February 10th.

WEll I am almost 11 weeks and starting to get my energy back, I can not believe how big I am already,I went and bought some maternity jeans and shirts this past weekend, I am also like Smashly, Jeans fit for a bit and then they are to big , but my normal jeans are to tight !! I am sure I will be growing into the soon !. I have had 2 ultrasounds, The first was when I was 7 weeks which showed both babies with strong heartbeats, Then I went in about 9 weeks because I was letting nervousness get to me and everything was just fine, I go in again next Wednesday for another ultrasound. As long as the news is good we will share with the family our huge surprise !!!! As for gender ultrasound ,Have not set it up yet but will have another ultrasound on at 16 weeks and 20 weeks, !!!

Doing good so far - almost 26 weeks and the girls are moving, poking and kicking. Just had a check up last week and all looks good - still walking, doing yoga and weights. My next appointment is in a week and they will do growth and check my cervix.

I am doing good. I will be 18 weeks tomorrow! We found out at our 16 week appointment with the MFM that we are having 2 boys! So we went ahead and nailed down names for the little guys...Cole Ryan and Anthony Spencer. I am HUGE already...my maternity clothes from the other kids barely fit...so I guess I will just make due with HUGE sweat pants for the rest of the pregnancy.

I am already having some contractions but my cervic is staying nice and long...so hopefully it is just from having an Irritable Uterus...I am used to it but normally doesn't start till closer to 26 weeks.

My next dr's appointment is Feb 22nd...then I see the MFM for a growth scan on March 2nd.
