    Default New Here!

    Hi!
    I know this board has been quiet, but I wanted to introduce myself anyhow.

    I am Tiffany, a 32 year old mom from Texas who is pregnant with her second pregnancy. Took 2 years and IVF to get here, and we are pregnant with fraternal twins. I am currently 7w3d along and we are excited but scared. I am the primary breadwinner in my family and we haven't told the new job I am starting in September yet. Hoping to avoid bed rest as long as possible. We are actually more scared about the pregnancy than raising twins, which is crazy.

    We have a wonderful 3 year old son who will be 4 by the time they get here.

    Anyone found any helpful books or websites I should look at?

    Congrats and welcome. Avoiding bed rest is possible. I worked until 34 weeks and then delivered at 36. No best rest HH9M

    "When You're Expecting Twins, Triplets or Quads" By Dr. Barbara Luke. This book was always by my side and got me through my pregnancy!

    Another I'd really recommend for after they're born is "Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child" It is an amazing book, and I don't think we'd be sane without it.

    I hope your pregnancy goes well, and all three of you are healthy

    Thanks guys!! I can't believe it but I am "showing" already at 9+2. This is not my first pregnancy, the constipation is an issue, but I am all belly already. I know the uterus is not out of the pelvis, but it seems to have shoved everything else out of the way already. Maybe I am just crazy.

    I was showing at my first u/s when we found out it was twins...and I was only 9 and 5. Showing early was the number one body change that made me think i might be having twins!

    Just wanted to say I'm so glad those babies are still baking! I keep wondering how the babes are doing. I feel bad for you ladies because when I was pregnant this board was very active and it was awesome to have so much support. It's too bad it's died down for you ladies because it was a huge support for me. KUP posted on your progress.

    I think that's because we were big complainers and got everyone out to complain.
