long time lurker.... can I join?
Hi everyone. I hope it's okay that I post in here. I've been lurking on Justmommies for about a year but I've never even considered looking in the Moms of Multiples board....until now.

I'm Audrey. My husband Justin and I have 2 children. Mercy Jane is 4 and Nathaniel is 2 1/2. And we just found out today that we are expecting identical twins!!!! I'm really excited and really scared. I'm only about 9 weeks along right now and totally in shock! I can't believe this is happening!

I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you and hopefully getting some support and advice from moms who've been there with twins.

Hi Audrey and welcome :) I am mom to 1 yr old b/g twins. I can well understand how you are feeling. We found out at 8 weeks we were expecting twins. It is a lot of work, but a lot of fun too! You say you are expecting identical twins. I am guessing that must mean they share either a sac and/or a placenta then?

Congrats and welcome though! The ladies around here are great and will provide lots of help and advice I am sure. Take some time and let it sink in!

Thanks Ladies! :)

Jenn, sounds like we have some in common. 2 kids and pregnant with identical twins. :) Hope your pregnancy is going well so far.

Rae-of-Sunshine, thanks for the support. The answer to your question is yes. 2 babies + 1 placenta = 1 really freaked out mama! I don't have a good track record with placentas. Both my kids were preemies because of problems with the placenta so I have no idea how this is going to work out and I'm really scared.
