To be honest, I am fatty patty while pregnant. I always gain a lot of weight while pregnant. And I didn't really gain any more weight than I did with my singletons, but I still gained about 70 pounds. YIKES! I never read Barbara Luke's book on multiples, but it is supposedly the guru of twin books. She suggests gaining weight early in your pregnancy b/c that would come in handy if you ended up in preterm labor and had to deliver early. Oh, and protein. She really pushes protein.

    Oh, and my dr. said that it isn't usually preterm labor that causes twins to be delivered early. He said that usually high blood pressure or gestational diabetes is what gets you! I did have one scare of PTL, but it was a false alarm. Even at 38w1d with 13 pounds of baby, I wasn't even dilated.

    Btw, I am bfing both girls. It can be done!

    Let me know if you have any other questions!
    Wonderful info as always Daisy! Wow! Can't believe you made it til 38 weeks. That's fantastic! Thanks for the book recommendation. I need to get that. I'm mostly a vegetarian but I started eating meat again over the summer to try to help with my egg quality. I'll need to really focus on getting a lot of protein.

    Good to know about ptl also. That makes me feel better. So did you have a c-section? It seems like most everyone does. I guess because usually one of them is turned the wrong way?

    Great news about bfing! You are my hero. I bfed both my DD's for 2 years and I plan on trying my best to do it with twins. Did you/ are you pumping also? Neither of the boys would take a bottle. Do they feed at the same time?

    Thanks again for all your help and advice.

    Great news Faith! You are out of the 1st trimester! Can't wait to join you. I haven't weighed but I feel a lot bigger. I definitely look pregnant now, which is crazy....I'll be 9 weeks on Tuesday!

    My ds1 was born on May 13th and it's always near Mothers Day in the U.S. Wonder when they will be born? My ob told me my due date for the twins is at 36 weeks which comes out to June 4th. I had another ultrasound last week with my ob and then I have one more scheduled a week from tomorrow with HRC before I "graduate". Is reassuring to see them, get the measurements, and hear their little heartbeats.

    Hope you are feeling well. Can't wait to hear more updates from you.

    HI, I am due May 3rd with Identical Twins (18wks now), but don't know the gender as yet. Hoping to find out on 13th Dec. I have 2 boys, swayed for a girl so FX. Been told I will be sectioned at 36wks (April 3rd) and so far have put on around 6lbs, which is ok considering I was super sick till 14wks. Will be nice to chat to other mums due twins around the same time as me!! Are ur's Identical also? I am scanned every 2 wks which is reassuring!

    Congrats to all the ladies having twins the twins! Lots of women have healthy, non-complicated twin pregnancies, but do be prepared for things like bedrest and preterm labour because that's definitely a possibility. I was lucky in that I didn't have any of those problems.

    I carried my identical twins to 37 weeks 5 days, then had a failed induction which resulted in an emergency c-section. My boys were 6 lbs 1 oz and 7 lbs. I nursed them until they were 2 - a lot of hard work in the beginning, but definitely worth it.
