Shells! Welcome and CONGRATULATIONS!!! Nothing quite like first finding out you are pregnant, then finding out not only are you pregnant but with twin miracles!!! I am so happy for you:):):) I probably had lower hcg numbers like you Funo - although I never had any drawn. My BFP wasn't until dpo13, and it was pretty faint. I was curious if I had twins mostly because my symptoms were more than twice as bad as when I was pregnant the first time. But even though I had thought about that, I was still blown away when I saw them!! So fun!!

Thanks Sugarplum, I love Vivi too!!! I have definitely thought about that for a fun nickname. I won't find out until Aug 12, that is when I have my anatomy scan! Are you finding out via US or are you getting the fetal DNA blood test? And don't beat yourself up if you can't stomach prenatals - you can't help it if you have horrible nausea!! It sounds like doing the gummies may be helping:) - you can also buy separate vitamins, like folic acid on its own, to see if you can stomach individual parts of the prenatal. As long as you are eating a well rounded diet you will be fine, and when you feel better you can start taking the vitamins regularly!

Funo, how did your appointment go? I just had my 14 week appointment, and I didn't have an official ultrasound, but my doc used the portable ultrasound they have in the office and took a quick look! They are already so much bigger than the 11 week US and I got to see them moving around and their heartbeats:)<3!! As for what I do, I am a doctor in internal medicine and I just finished my fellowship in nephrology (kidneys) and geriatrics (old folks) but I ended up taking a job as a hospitalist - I take care of general internal medicine patients when they get admitted to the hospital. So it is pretty nice because I am never on call but it is shift work, so I do have to work about 4 night shifts a month, the rest are day shifts.

Navy - how is the dog? I hope better! Never fun to have a sick animal and then the vet bills are always painful:(! Oh and I love your girls' names!! So fun that you are feeling them move! I think it was around 18 weeks when I felt my son kicking, it is such a beautiful thing!!

Hope you are all having a lovely day!!!

Appointment went really well, posted a little collage on my blog. Pictures weren't very good this time around. Both weighed in on target. And today I did my glucose test. Hope to hear results tomorrow.

Thank you Momma--I am trying my best with the diet---I seriously have the WORST food aversions this pregnancy, and nothing sounds appetizing. Tonight I am eating noodles with tomato sauce, and a plain salad with olive garden dressing--literally the only thing that sounds good to me. I am going to make hubby and my brother (who lives with me) a french dip so at least they don't have to suffer with me..lol!

I had my 12 week ultrasound on Friday, and WOW---AMAZING!!!!!!!!! Babies are so precious waving their little hands, and kicking their little feet. I can't believe how much I love them already. I cannot wait to find out genders! I don't care what they are, but just want to know. I NEED to SHOP SHOP SHOP!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, my new biggest worry as of now is when the babies will be born. I am due Jan 22, but I know twins are usually earlier. My sons birthday is December 21st, and obviously Christmas is the 25th. I would hate for them to be born on his b-day, Christmas, or even Christmas Eve--I am a big bday celebrator and Christmas, and really want them to have their own special days.

How was everyones weekend? Hope is was great!!!

Sugar I have the same issues lol my sons bday is November 30th and mg original due date is December 10th but since I'm c-section it's already a ween ahead which pushes to at least December 3rd. Putting it very close to my little mans day. He already said he wouldn't mind if the girls were born that day but I still have that guilt of I want their own special days ;) guess we can't complain. Our babies will enter this world when they are meant to :) yay can't wait to meet them :)

Navy--I am glad I'm not the only one that worries about this! I guess no matter what it will work out just fine---I figure if they have the same b-days or share with Christmas, we will just celebrate on separate days. Its all about making them feel special one way or another.

My official due date is 8th Feb but have been told I won't go past 37+2 as if I hadn't gone by then i will be induced of sectioned by then so that takes me to January 20th. Realistically I have to prepare that they could be here at Christmas. Which is only 5 months away!

I would want them to have their own birthday too my mum's is 31st Dec x

let's just all hope that they decide to stay put until right after Christmas! My goal is to keep them in until at least December 28th, that way it's a week after my son's birthday, a few days after Christmas, and everyone is happy. I honestly LOVE having my son's bday so close to Christmas, it makes the Holidays even more fun, and special, so I think it will be fun to have more birthdays close to Christmas---just not ON Christmas.

We will figure it out though if it does happen. I'm already figuring it out in my head. If it falls on Christmas, we will just have to do Christmas and also have cake. We will probably wait a few days, or until the next day to do bday presents---since getting Christmas presents and bday ones doesn't make much sense to me---I don't want them to get short handed.

I would love to have my twins born on my birthday, so I wouldn't have to celebrate my birthday anymore and could just focus on them. Plus it would be the best birthday gift ever. But they will only be 35 weeks then, so unless they grow big, strong and healthy before then, I would rather see them stay put. Not having NICU time is my goal!!

I'm with you fun--hope for no NICU time. I'm hoping my twins stay put until the 37 week mark--or at least a few days past the 36 weeks. I think that's a reasonable goal, right?

That sounds amazing Navy! I will be sure to check you out on Pinterest! So much fun!

I don't think I will have a baby shower---I don't know many people where I live, and my family and my husbands family are in two separate states. However, as soon as I find out the genders my husband and I are going to do a registry--maybe two at Babies R Us, and Target. That way, we will have a list for ourselves, and we can also share with family members if they want some ideas. I am already planning the nursery too--the room is somewhat small, but I think it will work. We really don't use our rooms for much else other than sleeping because they are upstairs, and during the day we are always downstairs.

I really want a calm, peaceful nursery. I will probably go with white cribs this time--my son had dark cherry furniture. We are going to have to sell his crib, so that I can get two matching ones. I want a large, fuzzy area rug in the room because they are so soft and cozy. I can't wait to start doing the nursery! Pottery barn has some great stuff for babies, and I love their baby bedding---I may not do it because it's pricey but I love checking their website for ideas!

By the way--here is my Pinterest! I have a baby #2, and #3 board set up with some ideas, but because I don't know genders yet it's not really gender specific.
