I've been on JM off and on for many years. My DH and I tried for 5 years to conceive and had 1 early loss in 2009. We are currently 18w5d with IVF di/di boys and we are over the moon. It seems to be a little slow in here so I'll likely just browse through old posts but I'm looking forward to learning how to be a mommy to twins!

Welcome! My IVF twins are 15 months and every day is a new adventure

It is slow here but I'll be happy to answer any questions you have! The other girls are great about answering questions, too...we just don't chit-chat a lot like some of the other boards.

Congrats and I hope all is going well so far!

Thanks for the welcome everyone! So far things are going great! I have the normal aches and pains but since this is my first pregnancy that I've been able to carry past 5 weeks I don't know any different. I'll tell you, time is flying by! It feels like just yesterday I got my BFP at 3w3d and here I am today at 19w5d. It's incredible!

Congratulations!!! My IVF twin girls are 7.5 weeks old! The first two weeks were the hardest for me (so far!), but now I've gotten to know them a bit better and they have a little more regular schedules. Also just starting to smile in response to things and that's an awesome sight!

My pregnancy got really hard in the mid 20 week range. Nothing was really wrong but I was the size of a full term with singleton baby and I just couldn't do much of anything anymore. Just remember any ailments you have in pregnancy (carpal tunnel, rashes, swelling, heartburn, etc) does go away once they're born!

Congrats again and let us know if you have any questions!

Welcome! My twin girls are nearly two months and so much fun!!!! My pg was horrible and I was in a wheelchair by 16 weeks. Once they were born by quick c/s at 35 weeks its been so much better! They had a 26 day NICU stay that wasn't a horrible experience. Coming home on oxygen was a pain as the babies were tethered. We are still working out feeding issues. My body heard twins and decided to produce milk for quads! I have over 1,000 oz frozen from the excess! There seem to be a lot more in the newborn issues department for us, but they are so much fun and we are really enjoying them! They sleep snuggled up together and its the sweetest thing ever!
