    Hi everyone.
    I have mentioned in several threads that I am pregnant with our second child. Today was my 13wk ultrasound and we just found out that I am having twins, so babies 2 and 3 are on their way. Just to be clear, twins do not run in our family, so we are all quite surprised. However, it does explain some symptoms that I have been experiencing that are worse than with my son or that are new with this pregnancy. My neighbour has been insisting that she thinks that I am pregnant with twins, so I will tell her when I see her later this week.

    I am a high risk pregnancy to begin with due to my own per-existing medical condition, so I am already under the care of a GP, hematologist, and OBGYN. The babies will be born in Saskatoon, just like our son.

    DS will turn 3yrs old in early Sept. My official due date with the twins is August 24.

    The ultrasound tech told me that the babies are measuring at 14wks
    Baby A: 8cm long, 159bpm
    Baby B: 7.9cm long, 153bpm


    I'm looking forward to the responses in this thread.
    My mind is still processing the information and coming up with a variety of things we need to consider.
    I'm looking for advice, information on special freebies for twins, etc.

    Thank you!

    Wow, wow, how exciting. I have no twin experience, other than a good friend has 5 yr old twins, so much fun, but so busy.
    Friends don't let real friends pay full price.

    Congrats Angela! My sister had twins 37 years ago. They were very premature (10 weeks and both under 3 pounds) so I spent a lot of time helping her care for them. Her DH was a long distance trucker who was only home on weekends.

    That's such wonderful news, and I'm sure you might be somewhat overwhelmed with the thought, but know you must be very excited!

    Wishing you good health and happy gestating!

    I know you come to Toon Town at times, the twins/triplets org has a huge sale each year - it's in May

    Oh, that's wonderful, Angela! It sure makes you stop and re-evaluate, doesn't it? Size of house, size of vehicle, size of buggie. OOh! Do you know if they are identical or fraternal? Do you know the sex(es) or do you want to know? It seems the knitters around here might have a little something to do! Best wishes! Angela and family!

    Congrats Angela!!
    Here is a little poem to prepare you.

    So many good things come in pairs,
    Like ears and socks and panda bears.
    But best of all are sets of twins,
    with extra laughter, double grins.

    There's so much fun in having two
    with twice as many points of view.
    So much alike, forever linked,
    and yet they're also quite distinct.

    They share a birthday and a name,
    But moods and tempers aren't the same.
    Although at times they may dispute,
    their loyalty is absolute.

    From days of youth till life is done,
    it's one for both and both for one.
    We're all quite novel and precise,
    But special folks ~
    God made twice.

    Angela-how wonderful. I am helping a Mum who is on her second set of twins and I also helped a Mum with triplets-so much fun but very exhasting in the first few months. It would be great if your husband could take holidays when the babies are born and/or you are able to get some extra help from family or friends. Twins are usually born a few weeks early and most often by C-section.

    Congratulations Angela and DH!
    Have you explained what's happening to your little man yet? How does he feel about being an older brother to not one, but two younger siblings?
