I haven't had twins but I am 9 weeks along now, and possibly carrying twins. I am 23 years old, but turn 24 in a couple weeks. I am really hoping that it IS twins! We find out next week....pray it's twins!

Re: Sister is Having Twins at 40 yrs, old

You should search this board for "twins"... I'm sure you'll find tons of threads about twins.

Good luck to your sister. 40 isn't old and it's actually more common to have twins the older you are.

Re: Sister is Having Twins at 40 yrs, old

I'm also having twins (fraternal). I'm now 13 weeks along and just recently got over most of my nausea, though it occasionally comes back if I go too long without eating. There is a TERRIFIC book out there geared specifically toward women carrying multiples. It has a lot to do with nutrition, but overall I've found it tremendously helpful since most other sources don't have much about multiples. I don't have it in front of me, but the authors are Dr. Barbara Luke and Tamara Eberlein. Dr. Luke is a specialist in multiples and works closely with the University Consortium on Multiple Births, which is where she gets the data that support her recommendations.

It's weird. In my sonogram you can see one fetus and an additional face. There's a line in between them, and another sono tech I know said she sees two sacs.

I had two sacs, at my 15 week u/s there was only one little boy in there.
