Mira trust me I realy wanted to make it to 37 wks, but now I realize that physically I cant do it!!!! You ladies that went beyond that point are AWESOME! Now some of this is because I have a cold and feel like crap, but everything hurts now and I can hardly walk at times and forget bending over! :eek:

I feel the same but I'm not into induction so I've kind of let go of thinking of the date...they're on their own schedule. Although I will lose my mind if I go post dates. Like gonzo!

I don't like the thought of induction either, but I'm not allowed to see 38 weeks so I'm actually hoping to be induced because it will make it easier to plan care for our DD and my doctor will plan it for when he is on call so he can deliver the babies. Come on 37 weeks !

huge surprise ... they don't run in our family, we weren't on fet meds, for DD we TTC for about 2.5 years, so we thought the next would take time too ... I had a BFP on the sam day I had a work accident the same day as the bfp, So i had a 5 week u/s because I had an incident at school with a kid hitting me. There was only 1... so at a follow up to that one at 8 weeks.

It was the last day of school and DH and DD were waiting out in a packed car because we were on our way to Miane. I was just running in for a quick check.

Well as I was laying on the table I was watching the monitor, I asked the tech how they got a split screen to look like that... well she looked at me, wiggled the wand then said "you didn't know you were carrying twins??" ..... I said "TWINS...... 2 of them....." then I had tiny bit of crying from joy!

I was sooo freekin' excited to get out to the car and show DH the pic that said twin A and twin B, he looked at the pic and said "whose picture is this??" I said ours.... he started crying too..... we were so emotional crazy and DD was looking between the two of us like who are you crazy people...

I'm new here! Is this where I post a mini intro, or should I put up a separate thread?

First name: Elizabeth (but I go by Elly too, easier to type. ^_^)

How far along are you? 16 weeks today!

How many fetuses are sucking the life out of you? Two of 'em

When is your official due date? March 4, 2012 (my seventh anniversary)

When do you guess or know you'll actually be having babies? I'm hoping to make it to February, my second son was a preemie, but we'll see. I'm hoping for a natural birth, so we'll see how these kids behave with positioning in a few months...

How far along were you when you found out you're having multiples? 15 weeks, 3 days. We had an ultrasound just before 8 weeks but only saw one sac, one heartbeat, one baby... but this week at my appointment I found out I'm measuring 4 weeks ahead and when we got an ultrasound, the second baby is RIGHT behind the other. Lol Surprise!!

Do you have other kids? 3 boys. They're 25 months, I'm due 26 months after the youngest's birthday, but with twins... probably another 25 month span. Or 24... Lol

How many gallons of ice cream would you guess you have eaten so far? Maybe one or two? Dairy and I aren't the best of friends right now...

Anyway, I'm thrilled to be here!!

HECK yes. Lol My two older boys are clamoring for a sister (the oldest wanted #3 to be a girl and argued with the u/s tech when she informed him it was a brother). I find out Oct 11 and am DYING to know. I *think* it's one of each.... but time will tell, eh?
