Twins & multiples

hello ladies and guys.
im mary im 10 weeks pregnant with twins i had a emergancy scan done 3 weeks ago cause they thought something was wrong and found out im have twins,
i already have 2 daughters aged 2 and 4 so im really scared, not just for the giving birth and caring for them but for the pregnany most really.
ive done the bad thing and go on websites to get info about twins cause i dont know what to expect with this pregnancy, and there is sites saying if you have an early scan it sometimes shows two sac's with two babies but when you come to your 12 week scan one has dissapeared, i couldn't bear the thought of it.
did anyone else feel like this too, im so scared of losing one or both its making me so scared to move or do much really incase i do anything.
some freindly chats with other twin pregnancys would be great.
im due on my birthday which is 1st aug 2009 but as twin pregnancys are only 36-37 weeks it will be end of july.
thanks to all that reply and hope everyone has a lovely christmas.

Hi Mary please dont be so scared i had an early scan at 5weeks after some bleeding and was told the same as you so i know how you feel at the moment but as your a lot further along im sure they will stay put mine did and are going to be 3 on thursday
I do have to admit that my pair did have a tramatic start coming at 28weeks but are now doing fine and i run a twins group and there are only 3sets out of 18 that came earlier than 35weeks and one set were even late coming at 41weeks, me i would have demanded a section by 37weeks as i was already huge when i had them, so if i went that far i would not have been able to move. lol
i spent every day of my pregnancy scared i would lose them as i have a long history of pregnancy loss and that made me unable to relax and enjoy it but you have already managed to do it so even though this pregnancy is likely to be a bit physicaly tougher on you than the previous two you can do it you just need to relax as stress isnt good for you or the twins
Take care and have a good christmas then in a couple of weeks you will see the twins again and how much they have grown since the last time

Wahey well done Mary thats lovely news!!! Im Jenni mummy to Isabelle.
I have not had twins but im sure you will be fine. As Jean says you are 10weeks now so nearly at that all important 12week mark anyway. Try to relax and chill out as you don't want the twins picking up on it or your other children as they need you to be there for them. Have a lovely christmas xx

Hi Mary, sorry only just seen this post. I know exactly how you feel, I'm pregnant with twins also, am coming to the end now tho, i'm 33 weeks and being delivered at 37 weeks by c section, i already have a 6 yr old son and 3 yr old daughter and it has been hard trying to cope with the pregnancy and look after them as i have found that this pregnancy has been alot worse than the other 2 especially as it gets further along.
Try not to fret about the scans, they are pretty good at keeping a close eye on you with multiple pregnancies, when i reached 28 weeks, i was starting to get scanned every 2 weeks, which is just to check their growth and the fluid etc.
If theres anything you want to ask, i'm more than willing to answer, you probably have loads of questions the same as i did, and i can't think of anything else to say as i have brain freeze at the moment lol.
Congratulations (forgot to say that)

Im also 33 weeks with twins ...both girls and so far so good !!!
Im more scared about the birth now though; as my hospital havent decided wether i need a c section or not i feel like im left in limbo until i go into labour. It really feels like their attitude is wait and see!!!
Im only getting scanned every 4 weeks as well; and they wont discuss my birth plan until i go back next time which is 36 weeks!! Im just hoping that the girls dont decide to make an appearance before then.
Has anyone got any tips or advice as im really scared!!!
