35 weeks – c section date

As I am sitting here writing this, we have exactly 11 days until our c-section date. 15/02/2021 I am so excited to meet them, but I have to be honest I feel sick to my stomach everytime I think about that c-section. I am so scared. I’ve never had any kind of surgery before, apartContinue reading “35 weeks – c section date”

Admitted to hospital

So at 34+4 I noticed again that movements were very quiet. This time from both babies, I wasn’t feeling much of anything. I had felt the odd subtle movement here and there, but that was it. Definitely nothing like their usual movements. As soon as Will got home from work we went straight in, withContinue reading “Admitted to hospital”

34 week scan update

Our 34 week scan showed both babies weights are on the low side. Baby boys estimated weight was 3lb 6 and baby girls was 3lb 8. So they were both starting to slow down in regards to weight gain. They had also noticed that baby girls abdominal circumferance had dropped off a little. When IContinue reading “34 week scan update”

A little scare…

So, we had a growth scan at 32 weeks which showed baby boy was starting to slow down on the weight gain a little. They weren’t too concerned at this stage. They asked me about their movements. I said that they are usually active but they do have quiet days sometimes. My midwife told meContinue reading “A little scare…”

4D scan

I forgot to mention, we had our 4D scan at 25 weeks! Top picture is baby girl, bottom picture is baby boy. It was so surreal to see these little babies on the screen, when they’re actually inside my tummy! I can’t get over how amazing and incredible and blessed I feel to be carrying,Continue reading “4D scan”

Hello third trimester!

Can’t believe I’m sat here writing this to be honest! Third trimester! 28 weeks pregnant, with twins! I don’t think it will ever fully sink in until they’re actually here! What’s been happening… So from 20 weeks I have been seeing my consultant or midwife alternately every 2 weeks, with a growth scan every 4Continue reading “Hello third trimester!”

20 week scan + movements!

I was so nervous for this scan! I’ve always seen the 20 week scan as the scariest one. Just because if there is something wrong, now is likely to be when they find it, and obviously with it being an IVF pregnancy we’re at higher risk for there to be anomolies found. The scan tookContinue reading “20 week scan + movements!”

GENDER REVEAL

At the start of pregnancy I was convinced I was carrying 2 boys. I had multiple dreams of carrying 2 boys and having 2 baby boys, so I was completely convinced. We always said we don’t mind what we have, as long as they’re both healthy that’s all that matters. We just really wanted toContinue reading “GENDER REVEAL”

Pregnancy symptoms during first trimester

I have been so so so lucky so far in this pregnancy in regards to symptoms! I have read it’s really common to suffer more with morning sickness, fatigue etc in a twin pregnancy more than you would with a singleton. But I genuinely have had no real sickness what so ever. I haven’t actuallyContinue reading “Pregnancy symptoms during first trimester”

First trimester screening results

I haven’t really been thinking much about this to be honest! But when the letter came through I felt really nervous! Will rang me whilst I was driving home from work and said I had a letter and do I want him to open it. I was like nooooooo that’ll be the screening results letContinue reading “First trimester screening results”
