Congratulations on your "twice as nice" news

After 10 years, 4 rounds of IVF and 5 FETs, I finally got the "your pregnant" news, then the bonus "it's twins".  It all seemed so surreal.  I was excited and amazed but eveyrtime I started really enjoying it someone would kindly say "I had a friend who (insert scary pregnancy news here)" and I would start being scared.

Even now when DS and DD1 are 8 and have been joined by DDs 2 & 3, aged 5 (thanks to FET 2.5yrs after DS & DD1) I still pinch myself to make sure it isn't a dream. I've gone from being an infertile woman to Mum of four  ohmy.gif

The hardest thing for me was allowing myself to feel all the emotions.  I'd convinced myself that because I had fought so long and hard to get pregnant and start a family I had to be grateful and happy every single second.  Of course I didn't and don't.  Yes lots more "work" went into creating my family but they can still be annoying on any given day.

Again congrats and a happy and uneventful pregnancy and onwards original.gif original.gif

Congratulations Prue!

I don't know if I belong here as a non-IVFer, but I can relate to your feelings of ambivalence. Through my pregnancy with DS2 I feel quite disconnected from the experience and feared that I wouldn't love this child if I didn't feel much for him in utero. Even after he was born I felt protective and nurturing, but not "in love" as I did with DS1. I worried for the longest time that I wouldn't feel that for him, what kind of mother was I? I was so focused on DS1 and how it was all affecting him, I kind of forgot that DS2 was a little person too.

But of course it snuck up on me in the haze and as his little personality comes out more and more I am more and more in love. He's nearly 2 now, and it's all good. Try not to worry too much, and focus on caring for yourself for the next few months (and beyond). It's the best way of loving your little ones now.

All the best for the rest of the pregnancy, I am so happy for you. xx
