  • I didnt know I was pregnant with twins until I lost the twin. All I could think was holy crap there was 2 of them. I was 19 years old when I gave birth to my daughter. I sometimes wonder if she ate her twin lol. She will fight with herself and she will have 2 totally different voices. Sadly sometimes she will lose the fight with herself. She is 3.

  • I have not yet had my twins but I was totally shocked when the tech keep looking then stepped out to get my doctor. They both stepped out discuss and then ask my husband out of the room by this time I am losing it trying to look at the screen like what do they see. The whole time thinking that the room was huge because the heart beat sounded like a echo. When all three return my husband was last because his eyes showed that all was fine but the doctors says congrats mommy of 3 . Not you having twins but hey get some sleep because you guys family of 3 will be 5 soon. Hope this helps you!

  • I was relieved! When I got the call from the infertility clinic that told me that my beta levels were so high I was definitely expecting multiples, I was scared that all 3 embryos had implanted. Finding out that there was only two made things seem so much more manageable.

  • The ultrasound took too long and I was afraid something was wrong so I was joyfully relieved everything was ok, just doubled.
