    Re: Is anyone pregnant?

    I found out I was pregnant by taking my tempature every morning. We had been trying for so long and it wasn't happening. I took my temp every am before getting out of bed. It was always exactly the same. The day after I got PG. the temp went up a degree and stayed there. I knew that a baby was on the way!

    I took oodles of HPTs when I was pregnant both times.
    My first born showed up the very first day of my missed period.
    Second took an extra 2 weeks to show a positive result!

    Both times I knew at conception though. And both times I had implantation bleeding a few weeks in.

    Re: Is anyone pregnant?

    Wow. I had my first ultrasound today, and no sooner had the nurse started rubbing the jelly all over my tummy and beginning the examination than she stopped what she was doing and went "I'd better go get another colleague". My heart almost stopped, convinced as I was that there was something wrong with the baby. No need to worry, though (I think). Turns out, I have not one but TWO healthy little babies frolicking about inside! No wonder I've been so exhausted the last couple of months!

    Mr Geek and I were shocked at first, but I'm really warming up to the idea of being a twin mother. Granted, we'll probably age ten years in the first six months, but it will be worth all the sleepless nights and hard work - not to mention all those unread books. So yeah, come late April, give or take, I'll be a proud mother of two identical twins! We don't know if it's boys or girls I'm carrying yet, but we'll find out at our next ultrasound two weeks from now. Soooo excited! I'm slowly getting used to the idea of muliplying everything by two.

    Are there any twin mamas and papas in the house? If so, I'd LOVE to hear all about your experiences.

    Wow Geek! How do you know they're identical? I teach a lot of twins (school and swimming) - certainly a lot of extra work at the early stages, but twice the excitement for sure! Congratulations!
    Count your blessings!

    OMG! Geek, that's fabulous! I don't have twins, but from what I've heard, if you think you're tired now...

    Just kidding, of course. I'm envious, I wanted twins. My mom's older sisters are identical twins and they have maintained such a close, strong bond over the years even though they have lived quite far from each other for over 40 years - really an amazing and wonderful relationship. So you know for sure they're identical? I'm curious, how can they tell?
