24 wks w/ TWINS! Did not know I was preg! Worried!

I am in shock. I just found out last week that I am 24 weeks pregnant with twins! I had, what I assumed to be my period every month and even had a couple of months (Aug & Nov) where I passed very large blood clots. I have had gastrointestinal problems, severe IBS and a hiatal hernia, for years so I assumed I was bloated (I have been so bloated due to IBS in the past that I have been asked if I was pregnant.) Add to this the fact that im 41years old (dad is 50!) and it was easy to attribute the sympoms to other things. It was only when I missed my period in December that I put two anx two togathercannot believe that I am the woman we all look hear about who was pregnant and 'didn't know.'

Congradulations on your twins make sure you get in to see a dr ASAP and start taking your prenatal vitamins.

OMG .. congrat's!!!  

I am pregnant with twins too .. 16 weeks. I WISH I was as far along as you! My pregnancy has been a very very difficult one since before I even found out I was pregnant. Mine was a shocker for me too. I had cervical cancer in the past and was under the belief that I could not have anymore children because of the cancer treatments. Then to add to it my boyfriend was told his sperm were no longer active so to find out I was pregnant at 8 weeks was a HUGE shocker! I was still having bleeding too like I was having my periods. In fact I am 16 weeks and I still have the bleeding! I try to look at it like they are two little miracles .. unexpected miracles!

I envy you for being so far along already .. LOL   I have been in misery! I am 34 years old .. and my oldest daughter is graduating high school this year .. so babies weren't in the plans but now they are here I need to prepare!

Good luck! Keep us posted!  =)
