    @JulieMalooley after reading your post i just had to tell you that i think your going to do an amazing job as a mummy of twins and here is why. Your babies chose you. They chose you. No one else but you and your dh. They wanted to come as siblings and they wanted to come to your home. When they are 6 months old and everyone is beyond happy and settled and confident in their abilities you will be wondering why you spent 8 months stressed and worried instead of enjoying it and you will want to turn back the clock to enjoy your pregnancy more. I know ivf teaches us disappointment to lose faith in the good times but now its here try to enjoy it. 😀

    Very nicely said @Infinity. I think it's just the anticipation building up @JulieM, but once the bubbas arrive and you settle into a routine you will be over the moon.

    @midnite01, I'm sorry it was not better news for you, though I am not entirely surprised by what the scan revealed. Did your FS give you any indication on how to proceed from here? Have you now stopped your meds? I think you're doing amazingly well with your 'onwards and upwards' plan. I hope you can make peace with this in your own time and then move forward confidently in 2016

    AFM, another boring day of bookwork. Sigh.

    I did go and see my GP yesterday. I wanted to run it past him that i was bone-achingly tired and my joints are hurting and I'm retaining fluid like a sponge. Yes. Attractive. Anyway, he reckons it's my BP meds and said "Can you hold out for another month? By then you might be doing another IVF cycle in which case you can't stay on those meds anyway."

    Sigh. Yes, I suppose I can be miserably tired for another month....

    It makes it very hard because I want to get out and walk to lose wight but I'm just too buggered. I've managed to keep off the 3kgs I lost but have not lost anymore despite being 'good.

    @Blossom74 oh no, it just makes life so bloody hard when you are tired How long are you supposed to stay on the meds for? If they make you feel like that surely it can't be too long term?

    Well, I'm on some form of BP medication until I can either lose enough weight that I don't need it anymore, or a miracle occurs. Come on, miracle!

    I can be switched over to another brand, but my Doctor is hesitant to do anything until he 'knows what's going on' IVF wise. If I do another cycle I have to change brands anyway, as the ones I'm on could possibly cause birth defects. There are much safer brands available to use during pregnancy but they don't work quite as well, which is why I'm on these ones now.

    I am fine taking pills - God knows I've filled my body with all kinds of drugs during IVF. It's the bl@@dy tiredness that gets me. Normally I'm like a machine and can work for hours. Now I'm looking for a nap at 11am and another at 3pm. It's frustrating because there are plenty of things I could be doing!

    Thx @infinity888 and BIB. I think it may be a different story for me today after the scan. I'm hoping so anyway.

    Thats what worries me @Blossom74 - what if we can't get into a routine. What if we have difficult babies (twice the trouble, half the sleep). What's going to happen when I need to start working again. I can't just take 12 months off unfortunately. I'm going to have to maybe make it 4 months max, then go back a couple of days a week, then more etc. The rest of my dept are in a panic trying to learn how to support the stuff I've always looked after and I've made it clear to them that I can't just be at the end of a phone whenever they are desperate. Not with twins and no sleep to contend with.
    I don't like the idea of putting small babies into child care. Maybe I should have more faith in my DP. If it comes to that, he will have to be the one not working. We just need to get to a point where we have the sleep issues sorted and that one of us can cope alone with two babies. I know there are single mums coping with twins just fine, but I can't imagine that being me.

    I'm sure everything will be ok JM. maybe start reading up on sleep training for babies if you're worried? I've read part of that book (or maybe an article? was a while ago when my niece was a bub) about french babies and how they're encouraged to sleep through the night "doing their nights" & "le pause" (or something)

    Lol 'le pause' ?? Try telling a baby that Yep, I'll definitely be studying up well before then. Actually I saw some good books on amazon a while ago which were about getting the sleeping patterns of twins sorted out, but I held off as it was still a bit early back then to start buying stuff. If all goes ok at this afternoons scan, I will buy it tonight. Can't even remember the name now, but it shouldn't be hard to find again.

    good luck with your scans. I hope you get an idea of their gender, or are you waiting for a surprise?

    I think the pause is for the parents - waiting 5-10mins for the bubs to settle themselves back to sleep as part of them learning to sleep without interruptions. (but I could have misunderstood it - I haven't tried it, I'm sure it's not as easy as that!)
