    I am in complete shock...I had my dating scan today and I've found out I'm having TWINS!!!! I was just worried they wouldn't find a heartbeat and they've found two!!

    I'm over the moon of course, but also so worried. I think the main thing I'm worried about is financial. We can barely afford one and our house is only a small 3 bedroom which seems too small for my OH, me and my 8 year old DS as it is! One thing I'm not worried so much about is the support we'll get from family and friends, because although my family all live in the States, my OH's family are fantastic and we have some great friends. With my last baby, I didn't have any support really and my ex husband wasn't very supportive either.

    We've been offered the Down's screening which must be done next week. I was going to have it done when I thought I was expecting one, but it gets more complicated with two, especially as they're probably not identical so may get two different results. I'm leaning towards not having the test done at all....

    Thanks for reading my long winded post, but I needed to tell people who would understand!!

    Thanks, everyone! It's amazing, I just can't get my head around it. I know there are increased health risks with a multiple pregnancy, but my last pregnancy had no complications, so I'm hoping for the same. Fx!!

    Thanks so much, everyone. It's sinking in a bit more now! I do have pics but I need to learn how to scan them on to computer to post them. A bit too much for me to do at the moment lol! I'll see what I can do. :)
