Hi! My name is Magda and I am 16 weeks pg with di/di twins. I have been a member of JM for a while, and hadn't even thought to look for a MoM section until today! I have a 4 year old girl and a 2 year old girl at home, so I'm a little nervous about how everything is going to work out, lol! I am finally getting over being sick all the time, thank goodness!

I have my level 2 u/s in a month...at my last u/s they guessed boy/girl but weren't' sure. I'm so ready to find out!

I am also hoping to exclusively nurse (my girls never had formula, and I hope the same for the twins) so any advice about nursing twins would be great!

Welcome! I'm Melissa, expecting B/G twins in September, and our DD will be 2 next month.

I'm also hoping to exclusively nurse...I have heard lots of success stories here, so I hope we can both meet that goal!

Hi Magda and welcome! My name is Marjorie and I have 1 year old b/g twins. We look forward to getting to know you! You absolutely have a great shot at exclusively nursing them, and there are several here that have done it. I had a hard time keeping up with pumping for them when I had to go back to work, so mine got a mix of bm and formula, but before I went back at 9 weeks they had at least 95% bm, so I think it is entirely possible! Here's hoping the next month goes by quickly until you find out the genders

Hi Magda! I'm Audrey. I'm pretty new here myself but I like it so far.
I also have a 4 year old (girl) and 2 year old (boy) at home and I'm 9 1/2 weeks pregnant with identical twins. Also hoping to exclusively breastfeed. I nursed my DD until about 6 months ago and my DS is still nursing occasionally but he seems to be loosing interest. I think he can tell my milk is changing. Probably best for the pregnancy to wean him though. I'm hoping nursing twins won't be any harder than nursing a baby and a toddler.
Anyway, welcome and good luck. I'm excited to get to know you.
