Did anyone's twins make numbers 4 & 5 for them? SCARED!

Ok so I found out not to long after delivering my daughter that I was having twins. I about passed out from shock lol. My husband and I already have 3 children together and wanted to try one last time for a boy since we had had 2 girls and 1 boy. Well much to my suprise I got a double whammy. I am nervous because this will make children 4 & 5 for us. I never imagined in my entire life that I would have 5 children. I only wanted 2 and then got pregnant on birth control with my daughter. Then going back on a different type of birth control I found I out I was pregnant again but with twins!!!

How did you handle it when you found out it was twins and was going to have 5 children? I'm sure it is normal to be freaking out but at the same time I am super excited. I am active and love to work out and never got big with my previous pregnancies. This time I am sure I will lol. Thank you ladies for all the help.

This makes 4 &5 for us too!

We decided to go for one more as well. We have 3 girls (7, 5 and 20 months. We wanted a nice even 4 so everyone would have a buddy. Early on in the pregnancy I knew this time it was different. I never had any morning sickness with my first 3. This time I was so sick and so tired. My husband jokingly said it was just because I was getting old. I told everyone it was either a boy or there was more than one in there. I was 10 weeks along when I went in for my first appointment. I told the doctor what I had been telling everyone else. When she did the ultrasound I couldn't believe it! We were shocked. But I was also very excited. This was something new and different. And there are going to be 2 babies to cuddle and love! It has certainly kept me on my toes. Rather than acting like I the pregnancy is nothing new because I've been through it 3 times already I'm reading everything and making sure to take good care of myself. Even though it is on my mind constantly I still have moments of "There are going to be 5 kids!!"

Congrats and good luck!

My twins are baby's 4 &5 also.
by: Leah

I had no idea what was coming when I went in for my first ultrasound at 12 weeks. I thought that this was going to be a routine pregnancy and a routine ultrasound. When she notice that there were twins and finally decided to share with us her findings, I almost fell off the table. My husbands reaction couldn't have been better and watching my kids figure out that they were going from 3 to 5 was priceless, I however started crying. It was such an overwhelming moment that I never saw coming. I got a hold of myself towards the end of the ultrasound and started asking the necessary questions about health and heartbeat, but I stayed in shock for more than 24 hours. I didn't sleep that nights. I was up all night finding information on the computer and trying to find out how this happened and what comes next. I am 13w 5d pregnant and couldn't be more excited for June to get here. Now all I have to do is figure out how in the world i'm suposed to hold 2 baby's at once. :)
