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”

12 WEEK SCAN

My god, we’re finally having our 12 week scan at 12+2 – August 26th. Our scan was at 08.10am at our local hospital. It was a really long scan too! They had to measure the skin fold at the back of their necks to check the risk of them having downs syndrome. Well the scanContinue reading “12 WEEK SCAN”

Another private scan…

We had another scan at 10+5 on August 15th for no other reason than I needed reassurance, again! This time my mum came with me cause Will thought it would be nice for her to see them seeing as she was just as excited as us! The scan was fine and they were measuring aheadContinue reading “Another private scan…”

9 week scan…

Look how big they are at 9+5!!! I was so relieved, Will was confident everything was fine but I was just scared that they would scan me and find nothing because of my lack of symptoms. But there they are! Both growing exactly how they should be with heart rates of 170 and 171! WeContinue reading “9 week scan…”

What happened between 7 and 9 weeks

Well obviously I worried the whole time and had times where I convinced myself the twins weren’t alive anymore. The 7th week seems to be the only time I really experienced proper ‘pregnancy’ symptoms. I felt really sick this week, with the urge to throw up, I didn’t, but thought I might a few times!Continue reading “What happened between 7 and 9 weeks”

7 week scan!

LOOK!!! I’m officially really pregnant! I couldn’t believe it was really true, and with not 1 but 2! We were soooo happy, we could see their little heatbeats, it was such an incredible feeling I can’t even describe it! Twin B is obviously a little shy but we could still see the heartbeats. The clinicContinue reading “7 week scan!”

Leading up to the 7 week scan

God being pregnant is stressful! Especially an IVF pregnancy! After 3 failures I felt like I was just waiting for something to go wrong all the time! I took test after test after test because I would convince myself daily that I wasn’t pregnant anymore and the progesterone pessaries was just stopping me from comingContinue reading “Leading up to the 7 week scan”

Coming home from hospital

Oh I was so glad to be going home! Mostly because I really needed to catch up on sleep, hospitals are very noisy places! But also because I wanted to see a familiar face! I wasn’t allowed any visitors in hospital due to the pandemic so it was very lonely! My mum picked me upContinue reading “Coming home from hospital”
