For expecting mothers of twins, the Bigger Better bbt Chart can be an invaluable resource for tracking ovulation and health. The Bigger Better bbt Chart provides pregnant women with twins the ability to monitor their basal body temperature (BBT) and make adjustments to their diet and lifestyle accordingly. BBT is a reliable predictor of ovulation and can be used to estimate the timing of conception in a pregnancy. By tracking the BBT, pregnant women can more accurately predict the due date of a twin pregnancy and safely monitor the health of their babies in the womb. The Bigger Better bbt Chart also provides information on nutrition, exercise, and other lifestyle changes that can help ensure a healthy pregnancy. This blog post will provide an overview of how the Bigger Better bbt Chart can be used to monitor and improve the health of pregnant mothers with twins.

Hello, I am a mother of twins born through IVF at the age of 42. I can give you more specifics if you email me. I will, however, note the following: – I did experience spotting for a few weeks and sore breasts – I did experience frequent urination (although not as bad as later on!) – I took progesterone in the form of suppositories and injections – I don’t know what my BBT was because I didn’t take it. I advise joining the Twins by the Bay group when you feel comfortable announcing your pregnancy because it has been so helpful to me. Please email me if you would like more information about my laboring experiences, etc. Older mom of twins arterrier.
Oh, twins! There are organizations and support groups for parents of twins, and as time goes on, the phenomenon becomes more and more common due to older mothers, fertility medications, and improved prenatal care. There are books and others with experience. in fact, what the hey! I have experience. Calm down. Its hard raising twins, but the rewards are incredible. Write to me. I’m amiable and have persevered in situations that must have been harder than having a second child in diapers. Not to worry.
I wasn’t pregnant with twins, but when I was 7 weeks along, I had two or three days of spotting. My husband and I were both terrified, but eventually it stopped, and everything was fine. My OB inquired about the color and quantity of spotting, among other things. Mine was dark brown, and there wasn’t much of it—maybe a teaspoon. Good luck and best wishes! anon.
As for receiving an epidural in the hospital. it is completely your choice. There may be a protocol to administer an epidural to every mother carrying twins, but you are not required to follow it. Mothers have given birth to twins without the use of medication, so there is no reason why you can’t if you want to. Given the risk, keep an open mind and take the action you believe is best for you and the unborn child. However, as long as you and the children are healthy (i.e. good heart beats) you can birth w/o an epidural. Congratulations and best of luck with the remainder of your pregnancy, tmnm.
I am 26 weeks pregnant with twins and have previously experienced a miscarriage, so I can relate to your worries. The spotting I had during this pregnancy lasted from 4 to 10 weeks, and my doctor reassured me that while it was unsettling for me, twin pregnancies frequently experience this. The symptoms you described are comforting, but you’re right that progesterone would make them worse, making your BBT inaccurate. Interestingly, I had additional progesterone both times when I had my second IVF attempt to conceive, despite the fact that I had not felt pregnant during my first (failed) attempt. Seeing the hearts beating normally is definitely a milestone. Since I was 10 weeks pregnant, I have been renting a fetal doppler, which I initially used quite frequently, but now only occasionally because the babies are moving around so much that I don’t feel the need. The doctors at East Bay Perinatal Associates in Oakland, with whom I’m very happy, deliver at both Summit and Alta Bates, and I’m under their care. Although epidurals aren’t typically used for twin deliveries, the likelihood of a c-section is higher than average, so if one isn’t already in place, it may be necessary to undergo a general anesthetic. Regarding additional precautions for high-risk pregnancies, I currently visit a perinatologist every two weeks (it used to be monthly at first) and will soon be doing so weekly. There is an organization called Twins by the Bay that you might be interested in; www.twinsbythebay.org/; sonograms every four weeks, which is a bonus. homestead. com/twinsbythebay/ Hope this helps and good luck!!
