I just joined so I thought I should introduce myself... I'm Ashley, I'm 25 years old, have been married to my dear husband for 4 years (as of the day before the confirmation of our pregnancy!) We had been "trying" for about two years, and longer than that hoping nature would just take it's course. In the end, I was diagnosed with PCOS, and Endometriosis (had the uber fun laparoscopy to remove it) and finally conceived using IUI with injectables. After a minor bleeding scare, we went to see our specialist and ta-da!!! Twins showed up on the screen. So here I am... I'm now almost 10 weeks, it's been a bit of a rocky road including a trip to the ER and several ultrasounds but, the babies are doing well and I've "graduated" from my fertility specialist to a regular OB!!!!
Needless to say, I'm happy to be in this place. Hubby is ecstatic, too.
I'm looking forward to being able to connect with other moms to be of multiples. As much as I love the "regular" pregnancy boards, I'm finding my friends who are mommies of singletons just don't "get it" I don't mean to sound down on them. But the comments about how big I am already, or people not understanding why I'm concerned about not gaining any weight (and worse, LOSING weight) is starting to wear on me. I bought "When you're expecting twins, triplets or quads" and I'm finding it very helpful, but it's still nice to have real people to converse with!!!!
I hope everyone is having happy and healthy pregnancies!!!
