    Even though we transferred 3 embryos, I was completely shocked when there were 2 on the u/s. they say everything looks really good and put me on extra folic acid. I go back in 2 weeks to make sure everything is still on target, then i will be discharged to an OB. They are fraternal and I don't know if it's a sign of things to come, but they implanted on opposite sides of my uterus mirror images of each other. Completely shocked,, excited, overwhelmed, etc.

    Those with twins, what advice, suggestions, or stories can you share with me? Thank you!

    Congrats!!! My twins didn't implant on either side of each other, but on top of each other. I'm carrying my baby boy up high and my baby girl down low. We implanted 3, also.

    My OB put me on 3 extra folic acid pills, prenatal vitamins, Ferralet (Rx iron), and I'm still taking Metformin from when the RE put me on it.

    Keep us posted on your upcoming u/s!

    Congrats! I just took my regular prenatal vitamin then at 20 weeks she started me on an iron pill. I will tell you that with this pregnancy my "morning sickness" was horrible - so much worse than with DS. I will also say this pregnancy is MUCH harder than with my singleton, however, it will all be worth it in the end.

    Congrats again!
