8 weeks 5 days - identical mono/di twins

8 weeks 5 days - identical mono/di twins

I'm carrying identical twins. I am a fraternal twin and my husband's father is a twin who had twins and his twin had twins. (New research shows there is an enzyme in some mens sperm that causes an egg to split, so the male side can be involved:) Plus, I'm 40. I'm just shocked that they are identical! I am already popping after an insatiable hunger that requires me to eat 4 times what I am used to. What an incredible experience for my first child(ren)... I am due in March 2011.

excited for all of us!

I have a baby book that shows a pregnant belly at 32 weeks, and I am already larger than she is at 13 weeks! It's hard to explain to people what a twin pregnancy is like. I have no control over the most basic things: food, sleep, and emotions!! Congrats on your second set of twins, that is amazing... My due date at 40 weeks is March 15th, but my doctor says with mono/di twins we will need to have them by 36 weeks. The placenta can degrade after that time, so it is more dangerous. I can't wait to meet my babies, it's becoming more real every day...

Nausea x 2!
by: Anonymous

Oh the nausea...! There are days where I seriously question this endeavor;) I've been taking unison and vitamin B1, which helps but also knocks me out. I'll post another pic to show my belly progression. Yikes!
