Being pregnant with twins, triplets or more can bring its own set of pregnancy experiences with it. If you've had a twin or multiple birth, share your story with us! Were your pregnancy symptoms more intense? How did you prepare for your babies' birth? Impart your words of wisdom to future moms of twins, triplets, and even quadruplets.
In 2004 Nov I conceived for the 2nd time (have a 7 year daughter), and like any other expectant, thought that it'll be a single pregnancy. In the late Dec we came to know that I was carrying twins. We were shocked to hear the news since it was just a natural pregnancy. Things were good until Feb. 2005.
I had my Amniocentesis on March 2nd 2005, which lead me to bed rest for the rest of the pregnancy. Two days after my Amino, I started to have the watery discharge, I called my doc and visited my hospital the following day that one of the babies bag ruptured. We were shattered since I was only 17 weeks through this pregnancy. I had no hope for this pregnancy since I was carrying the twins. My doc. asked me take one day at a time.
Things got worse as days passed. I started to bleed almost everyday. On two occasions I bled heavily. I thought this was it. For almost a month all these went on and we lost the hope of the ruptured membrane healing and patching. On April 19th, I was to be admitted in the hospital till the delivery so that I could be monitored more closely. Every hr. became hard to pass.
When I went for my monthly check-up with the high-risk specialist, he told us that both the babies have good amount of amniotic fluid and that none of bags showed any signs of leaking of losing fluid. We were so relieved to hear that. So I wasnít admitted in the hospital on the 19th. My pregnancy went the same way with total bed rest.
On June 3rd when I went for the stree-test, the technician told me that I was having contractions. I was admitted in the hospital and was given turbutaline and when this didn't work I was put on the Magnesium Sulphate IV medication to relax my body muscles. It was yucky. I hated the feeling. It was horrible but the very thought that I was saving my babies, I kept going.
I was on that for 27 days and when I was 34 weeks and 1 day, I started to leak and I was asked to prepare for c-section. On July 1st 2005, I delivered two baby girls. One weighed 4 lb and 1 oz and other baby weighed 4 lb and 15 ozs. My doc. told us these were miracle babies.
They are 22 months now and I am having a great time with all my three daughters.
life at 11I was madly in love with John D. I was 11 years old and we'd been going out for 9 months. We decided it was time to have sex again. We had all ready done it before but this time something went wrong.
After we were done we realized there was a hole in the condom. He said he didn't do it but I know he did. A few months later I found out I was having quintuplets (5 kids) at 11!!!!!!!!!!!! Well that's my story I'm 17 my kids are 6.
For people who want to have sex giving birth is very painful!!!
Completely different then the last 4 pregnancy'sI have had 4 kids: one is 9, the others are 31/2, 21/2, and 1 1/2. I have never measured large for my dates (my uterus was measuring 13weeks at 8 and half weeks) and have never gained 18 pounds by 12 weeks.
I am 12 weeks pregnant and not scheduled for an ultrasound until June 11th. Heard the babyís heartbeat this week very loud, only heard one. I think thereís 2 in there but my morning sickness is nil like all the others but I am more tired then usual. I havenít fit into my clothes since I was 8 weeks pregnant. I used to wear a size 3-4 and now I canít even get into a size 8.
I think it is twins and have never thought that before. I am so confused and frustrated with this whole situation that my pregnancy has not been enjoyable at all. The reason the ultrasound is scheduled so far away is we're very backed up down here and they have no room for any more appointments. I need to make my doctor listen next visit when I tell him that I think itís 2 in there so he will do whatever it is they need to do to find out if it is. I have to be prepared if it is.
Thanks to you all.
my Pregnancy storyWhen I know that I am having twins, both my husband were very delighted. At the first trimester, I experienced morning sickness and nausea. During my second trimester, everything seemed to be going smoothly. Only my feet are swollen.
Both of them kicked my stomach so hard that I thought that I was in labour. I experience some back pain and my stomach is growing bigger and bigger each day.
I hope that I will have a successful birth 2-3 weeks later.
Too Many To Count!I get very surprised with the amount of multiples I have had. I had a set of twins when I was only 14. It was my first time pregnant and I was even more worried because I was going to come home with 2 babies. I got pregnant when I was in 8th grade. I graduated and gave birth to twin girls. I named them Nikki and Micah.
Their father left me when I was 5 months pregnant. He started to worry about having twins at the house. Then his friends started in on him. "Your life is over, man" was what his Best friend would say. He started thinking that he wouldn't be allowed into any school (his education was important to him) so the next thing I know he's telling me that he can't do it. I cried for a few days, but then my friend (also my ex) started talking to me. He got me anything I needed.
When my twins were a year old, I found out I was pregnant again. The father was the same. When the twins were 2 months old he came around. He started helping me out, and we got closer. This time we both went into an ultra sound and found out that I was having not 1 not 2, but 3 kids! I was 15 and pregnant with triplets! I was in denial at first. See we went into the dr. on April 1st! I thought it was just some practical joke until I saw a picture of each one of them. I had two boys and a girl, Colin, Thaddeus, and Cassie.
I moved in with my boyfriend and about 2 years after I had the triplets I was pregnant again! This time it was just 1 baby a son, Cameron. A year later I was pregnant again. Then to round it off I had quadruplets! Yes I know what your thinking, "how is that possible?" well, I honestly don't know. I had 2 girls and 2 boys. Joseph, Kody, Kayla, and Destiny. After that I didn't get pregnant again! I have 10 kids. I love them all the same.
I am not proud of being a teen mother, but I am proud of my kids.
