@midnite, how did your scan go today love? I, too, have been thinking of you today
Julie, I think the possibility of twins would conjure up stress for anyone, especially when they will be your first children. It is that fear of the unknown... x 2!
In actuality, when they finally arrive though, I'm sure all of that worry will be swept aside. Just imagine looking into those eyes when you 'meet' for the first time It will be twice the cuddles, twice the love, twice the precious little squishy faces looking up at you in awe.
Yes, it will be a lot of hard work, but you're a hard worker anyway and I'm sure you will be organised. Yes, the two of them will cost a lot of money, but again - think of how much you spent bringing them to light in the first place. If anything is worth struggling for, it will be these two blessings.
I reckon it's only natural to have a pre-birth panic, whether you're expecting one or two babies. And hey, if you ever get stuck, Aunty Blossom will happily take care of them for you so you can have a break
JulieMalooley You haven't sold me on the idea! You know it will be hard but it's going to be hard anyway, may as well get it over and done with. If I was trying for my first I would definitely be taking the chance with twins, given the opportunity. I wanted two close in age and twins certainly fits that bill!
Blossom74 said Luv😊
I was scared too at times before DD arrived. I was actually terrified at one point after she was born. Yes...despite everything we'd gone through to have her plus being the age I was when we did didn't stop me from feeling frightened at the reality of it all & what was to come.
I was sitting on the bed in hospital watching her sleeping & felt very afraid & overwhelmed at what lay ahead...of being responsible for her for the rest of my life etc. I loved her but I was sh!t scared of her too!!
Having really,really bad "Baby Blues" didn't help either but I just took things day by day. Eventually I got over my fears & as the days/weeks passed we got to know each other, got into our own rhythm & became a tightly bonded unit to one another.
Everything you're feeling is normal Luv & it's exacerbated by the fact you're having 2. You will eventually feel happy about this Luv & more confident of what the future will be/hold once they arrivexo

Hey ladies had the scan its still pretty inconclusive the fs could see a grainy area that could be something and he believes its a blighted ovum which i assumed. He thinks he can see a sac but not much more. His machine is ok but not as good as specialist scanning places. My girlfriend is 37.3 weeks with twins yeehaa she was relieved to get to this point the lucky ***** conceived her 2 yr old first month of trying and the twins first month of trying again.
We have had a couple of det and the thought of twins crossed my mind. I would be grateful for what we would get and every day im grateful for e knowing there are many more people that would love to be in my shoes.
Actually @midnite01 all the scans have been perfect and I'm very confident we are going to end up with two, hence the panic. Maybe I just never really believed we would be successful and I definitely never thought two would ever stick after all those failures. It's really knocked me for six. Thank god DP is unrattleable although now that he's finally talking about when they arrive he has admitted he thinks it will be hard and scary for a while. He will get me through it. And if it's too hard we will just organise lots of family events as my sisters and SIL are all desperate to hog the babies. Maybe invite them all over and sneak off to bed while everybody is busy cooing at them
That sounds like a great plan. Get all the sleep in you can.
