    Re: Is anyone pregnant?

    That's great news, Geek, I'm thrilled for you! I am a great aunt to twin boys who just started Kindergarten this fall. They are fraternal twins and look nothing alike and have completely different personalities. My nephew and wife were crazy busy the first few years, but it's all been nothing but a joy to them. They are now expecting a baby girl in February.

    Congrats on the twins, geek!

    That "I must get a colleague" is definitely not something you want to hear in any hospital setting, so no wonder your heart stopped. Glad everything was great with you!

    Congratulations to you and MrGeek! How exciting! Good luck and rest up as much as you can NOW!

    Some people have asked how they can tell the twins are identical. I think it is because they share an amniotic sac, which would be detectable during an ultrasound. Fraternal twins would have two separate sacs.

    Thanks for that MamaC - makes sense. (I always want to know "why?")
    Count your blessings!

    Re: Is anyone pregnant?

    Thanks, everyone, for the congrats. I was still in shock during the examination, so I didn't quite catch the reason why the nurses were so sure about the identical twins thing. They seemed fairly certain, though, and MamaC's explanation seems very plausible. I'll have plenty of time to get down to the details later on as I'll be scheduled for ultrasounds every two weeks for the remainder of the pregnancy.

    Since yesterday, I've been hitting the books (big surprise there...) to find out as much as possible about twins. I'm definitely aware of how many sleepness nights I have ahead of me, but I'm excited and overjoyed beyond words. Also, it kinda figures that I'd get pregnant with twins. I've never been much for normalcy.

    Happy Thanksgiving weekend, everyone, and thanks for the shout-outs!

    Wow Geek that is so exciting! but be warned I'm going to be 3 times critical of future name choices *shakes fist*

    once for baby A's name
    once for baby B's name
    and once for how they work together as a set
