@JulieMalooley I am a twin. My mum told me that if one of us woke, she would wake the other one. It didn't take long before both of us were in the same sleep schedule. She also breastfed both of us at the same time. We slept in the same cot for a few months (it was recommended but this was 1975 so it is probably frowned upon now). Then when we went to separate cots, my mum had to put them side by side because we were always looking for each other. We are identical but I am sure fraternal twins would be exactly the same.
@Sue77 I can't believe they won't provide a room. I bet the reason is the person that signs them in doesn't work on a Saturday. With the amount they charge you would think they could pay a Saturday rate.
@BlondeinBrisvegas I hope the transitions goes well. I think it is lovely that you had your little one last year but are still here supporting all the girls.
@Bongley I hope your scan shows that you are good to have your transfer in the next few days.
I was going to suggest exactly what @Blossom74 and you had in mind
Will 1 cot fit in your bedroom that you can put them both into?? It's not going to be an issue to sleep them side by side on their backs until they start to roll so you'll have a good 3 months or so up your sleeve there before they do.
Trust me when I say that you won't want to be getting in and out of bed every 2-3 hrs to then have to walk into another room to feed them when they're newborns and change their nappies/resettle them etc afterwards. It's exhausting as it is to do that when they're in the same room as you in the beginning!!!
Plus it'll be winter too Luv so my advice is if there's anyway you can have them in your room at least for the first few months then make it happen however you can even if that means buying a portacot with a bassinet attachment for eg as they're smaller than a normal cot so might be easier to get that in your bedroom instead??
P.S...There's things I've done and do that are "frowned upon" Luv but at the end of the day, as long as it's not anything unsafe/dangerous, then I do what works for DD and for us!!!

Thanks Ladies... yes its very annoying. . Just booked a hotel and yes another 210 dollars .. wtf... I think they have the attitude that if they can pay 12000 $ for ivf plus pgd on top of that. . Then 200 is nothing for them. .. Anyways really can't do anything ...and I really don't think k they are going to reimburse anything... but yes. ... there is no harm in asking ...
Regarding the lining .. mine was 8.3 today.. and trigger is tomm. . Does it look like it's in the right range ? I forgot to ask the nurses anything abt the lining .. how much should it ideally be ? I have got no idea abt lining ...
