    So, some of you know or remember bits and pieces of my story. DH and I have been trying for over 8 years and I had a miscarriage November 2007 and an ectopic pregnancy last August. I am now 10 weeks pregnant, with twins!!! We are so incredibly excited :thumb: We have actually known for a month that it was twins, but we were waiting until the doctor said we could be confident that things were going fine. We have had 3 ultrasounds in the last month and each time the babies are growing ahead of their gestational age and their heartbeats are perfect! :wub: We still have a ways to go, but 10 weeks is the point that the doctor felt we could tell without too much to worry about.

    P.S. Only our parents know we are pregnant at all. We are telling the rest of our families Christmas Eve and that is when our parents will find out that it is twins. It has been so hard not to tell, but it will be more fun this way. DH's family and some of mine will be together Christmas Eve for a White Elephant ornament exchange. We have an ultrasound ornament with the picture I posted and on the ultrasound it clearly says that it is TWINS. Whoever opens it will have to figure it out from there ;)

    How very exciting! Enjoy e.v.e.r.y. moment of it. I know all too well the pain of both infertility and loss. We're praying for our own BFP for the New Year!

    This is wonderful news! Your last comment reminded me of when I was 10 weeks with twins. I walked into a mall and saw my ex-boyfriend. We didn't talk or anything but I saw his eyes get really big. I wanted to shout out, "I'm pregnant with twins!!!" to explain my big belly, which was not big enough to make it apparent I was pregnant, but big enough to look like I needed to step away from the buffet! Ugh :(

    Anyway, yes, welcome to the twins club! If you have any questions, my girls are 7 1/2 now and I can tell you my experience.

    Congrats! I'd love to have twins too someday after I get married. If I married my current BF, I'd probably have a good chance since he's an identical twin & there were twins on both my parents' sides of the family.

    identical twins is not a genetic trait. Fraternal twins is a gene that is passed down on the mother's side. Are the twins on your mum's said fraternal?
