pregnant with twins and heavy spotting at week 9

Hi

I had a u/s at week 8 and we got surprise that we are having twins, and saw heartbeats of both. Doctor said everything is good.

Now since two days I am sometimes when I wipe out I am getting pink blood like size of quarter , and this is since two days. It is freaking me out, I had missed miscarriage before at week 9. So its scared to death. I am having next u/s on 6/19 but its a week way.

Does anyone experience like this situation before with twins? Today I had little bit hard work though and I am really tired.

Please help.

I am pregnant with twins, and spotted up until week 13. Some think  its because your uterus is expanding so quickly.  I am now 30 weeks  I hope your next u/s shows everything is fine :)

I can tell you that the 1 thing that helped me was drinking lots and lots and lots of water... Drink tons of water, then drink some more. Every day.  It really helped slow down the spotting.  Try it :)

Were you eating lot or sufficient  during first trimester, I don't feel anything to eat. So I just eating little less than usual.

How much more we have to consumer with twins?

I didn't have an appetite during the 1st tri.... You can look at my weight tracker and see what i gained when, if you like. :).  My doc told me to gain between 30-40 lbs for twins.  I just went to the doc, and I have only gained 4 lbs in the last 6 wks.  I have gained 25lbs total.  I am almost 31 wks.

Thanks a lot.

One more question I have about prenatal vitamins that I forgot to asked to my doc because of the excitement of the news. Do you think that I need to increase any particular vitamin supply, right now I am taking Centrum Prenatal with DHA?

I would def call and get a prenatal vitamin from the nurse!!  Also, they put me on extra folic acid.  You need both with twins.  It is much different then a singular pregnancy....  You can even ask for samples for vitamins.  But def tell them you want the folic acid.  You can ask as many questions as you want :)
