I have a lovely 23 month old her name is sara and i am now pregnant. I would like to share with you my story.
I was 6 weeks pregnant and i noticed i had some bleeding so i went to my doctor. He sent me to have a urgent ultrasound. I went to my ultrasound appointment with my mother and husband, while i was laying on the bed, i asked "so how is my baby " he then turned the screen to me and said "you have a healthy baby." I was so relieved and then he continued to say "and there is another healthy baby." I looked at him in shock, i couldn't speak i looked over at my mother and saw her almost on the floor in shock as well, and my husband jumped up and said "I AM THE MAN " it took a while to sink in that in 8 moths i was going to have twins . The twins are in separate bags witch means there are two placentas.
I am now 16 weeks and i am bigger than a normal pregnant woman. I look like six months i am already finding it hard to get of the couch, but thank god i have lots of people to help me. I am a bit scared of what is ahead of me when i found out i was pregnant. I thought ok its not so bad, i am having a baby and i also have sara... but now i know i am having two. What i am worried about is when it comes to feeding time how am i going to breastfeed both at the same time or who do i feed and change first but i know it can be done and i also have to think about Sara and by the time the twins come she will be entering her terrible two's. Although i think she is already there.
The twins are due on sara's birthday, which is nice, but in the end its all worth it when you hold your baby for the first time. That's the best feeling anyway. Back is starting to hurt so i better go.

I'm now on my 14th week of pregnancy! At this point I feel like I should be further along. I'm only on week 14!?! That's what I really feel like saying. With all the pregnancy symptoms, sometimes I just want a break from it all. I need to find ways to keep my energy up. I'm so lazy at work. When I get there is when I'm ready to go home and lye down. I'm also starting to eat more, which is a good sign. Every once in a while I'll crave something cheesy. I love cheese and its nice to eat it without having it exit the way it came in.
Fetal Development for week 14: At this point my baby should be around 31/2 inches long and 1 to 2 ounces. My baby is beginning to practice the inhale and exhale movements. While the neck is growning longer, the ears and eyes continue to grow into place and the chin no longer rests on his/her chest. My baby is beginning to move its hands (reflexing).
Maternal Changes: At this stage in your pregnancy you might notice that your breasts and nipples look different. Your areolas may have become enlarged and darker. Also, you might notice a dark line that runs from your belly button to the top of your pubic bone, called linea negra. This line has always been there, but during your pregnancy it becomes darker. These changes are due to hormonal fluctuations.
