BarnYardCow Wed 20-Feb-13 21:04:54

Mononoke Wed 20-Feb-13 21:05:29

Hello, can I join in. Twins this week. grin

pegster Wed 20-Feb-13 21:05:45

Liking these two already

LaurenLaverne Wed 20-Feb-13 21:06:04

ooh twins! exciting!

IAmLouisWalsh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:06:13


Bloody twins. Scary!

Hassled Wed 20-Feb-13 21:06:54

They seem like a nice couple - must have been a hell of a shock when they weren't even planning a third.

CitizenOscar Wed 20-Feb-13 21:06:58

I'm in, DH is out, DS is asleep. Nothing can stop me (hope I've not jinxed it)!

BarnYardCow Wed 20-Feb-13 21:07:44

Spoke too soon, Dd2 up! Twins this week,

Vagndidit Wed 20-Feb-13 21:07:59

Gah! Parents of twins aren't that old, are they?

Mononoke Wed 20-Feb-13 21:10:56

They seem really nice.

sailorsgal Wed 20-Feb-13 21:11:16

Is the young couple having twins aswell?

Mononoke Wed 20-Feb-13 21:12:49

I don't think so sailor, was rummaging for biscuits in the kitchen when they were on.

pegster Wed 20-Feb-13 21:13:11

On a different note, Beyonce looks amazing in this advert, such a beautiful woman

LaurenLaverne Wed 20-Feb-13 21:13:39

gosh that seemed a quick decision re caesarian? I suppose you would be expecting it more with twins?

auntieobem Wed 20-Feb-13 21:14:02

My niece is meant to be on tonight's episode - haven't seen her yet though! (She's a mw, not a mum!)

Flisspaps Wed 20-Feb-13 21:14:03

We were just saying it looks nothing like her and its been messed with to a ridiculous degree!

<settles in>

oooggs Wed 20-Feb-13 21:15:04

Ohhh twins, looking forward to that one, close to home, will be nice to watch from the other side!!

pegster Wed 20-Feb-13 21:15:49

It would take more than a bit of messing with to make me look anything like that sad

Vagndidit Wed 20-Feb-13 21:15:58

I'm thinking Mickey Mouse and gf are bumbling young idiots there to provide contrast to lovely "old" couple with twins...

Does Beyonce really need to advertise a concert tour?

oooggs Wed 20-Feb-13 21:16:04

Missed that!!!! So a twin c section?

Mononoke Wed 20-Feb-13 21:16:21

Are you expecting twins oooggs ?

auntieobem Wed 20-Feb-13 21:17:52

That was my niece! The one who said yup!!

pegster Wed 20-Feb-13 21:18:03

This young lad is an odd one!

Vagndidit Wed 20-Feb-13 21:18:21

So gestational diabetic is slurping down tins of Pepsi, Costa coffee and bottles of juice?

sailorsgal Wed 20-Feb-13 21:19:19

OMG he is one of 12!!

oooggs Wed 20-Feb-13 21:19:45

no!!!!!!! My twins are nearly 6 :-)

LaurenLaverne Wed 20-Feb-13 21:20:08

He is hilariously weird! Bleurgh to all the caffeine, would make me feel awful

Mononoke Wed 20-Feb-13 21:20:42

Ah, my 2 are 2.

oooggs Wed 20-Feb-13 21:21:29

I am just fansinated by twin pregnancies and births sad muppet

Mononoke Wed 20-Feb-13 21:22:21

Yes me too.

IAmLouisWalsh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:23:11

I like the teenage daughter!

oooggs Wed 20-Feb-13 21:23:48

2 x toddlers fantastic!!!! When ours turned 2 we had a 3 month old, glad those days are behind us wink

pegster Wed 20-Feb-13 21:23:57

Aww, love their older kidssmile

Flisspaps Wed 20-Feb-13 21:24:11


Mononoke Wed 20-Feb-13 21:25:54

Oh wow, you really did have your hands full wink
The first thing DP said to me when we found out was - we are NOT having any more, and I haven't been able to change his mind......yet.

LaurenLaverne Wed 20-Feb-13 21:27:01


Figgygal Wed 20-Feb-13 21:27:38

My dh is terrified of trying for a 2nd baby incase we get twins grin

Aw that young fella made me sad there

auntieobem Wed 20-Feb-13 21:28:00

My dn just swept someone!

oooggs Wed 20-Feb-13 21:28:24

Yes 3 under 2 but had a great 3.3year old to help us!!!! They are 9,5,5 & 4 at the minute

I really like the twin family

That young dad lost his mum aged 12 sad

IAmLouisWalsh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:28:38

I remember meeting a woman at baby group who tried for a third baby and got twins. Scared the life out of me. dS2 was three months and it convinced me that that was it!

IAmLouisWalsh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:29:29

If the twins turn out like these two, they will be fab

pegster Wed 20-Feb-13 21:29:43

We're TTC number 2 and my DH is also terrified it'll be twins. He has 2 teenagers as well as our DS and is horrified at the potential for being a Dad of 5!

auntieobem Wed 20-Feb-13 21:30:41

How far gone is the lady having twins?

pigleychez Wed 20-Feb-13 21:31:12

Having twins is a worry of mine for going for number 3.
Theres family history of multiples so it would be sods law!

CollectorofCookbooks Wed 20-Feb-13 21:32:47

I'm watching this with trepidation. I'm 24 weeks pregnant with twins.

I'm going to end up gibbering behind the sofa, aren't I?!

LaurenLaverne Wed 20-Feb-13 21:33:56

ooh pegster I have a DS and a DH with two teenagers from his previous relationship. I hope I can persuade him to TTC my no. 2. He keeps saying "but I would have four?!"

curiousgeorgie Wed 20-Feb-13 21:33:57

This twins family is so likeable...

beingginger Wed 20-Feb-13 21:35:15

i always wanted twins but sadly never got them i got 3 singles instead. they are all over my family, i have 3 sets of cousins as twins on my dads side!

saying that my friend had twins last year and has turned into a smug mummy who is the only person ever to have a baby and she only ever talks about the twins and how advanced they are.

ellesabe Wed 20-Feb-13 21:36:08

I really hope my family is that lovely when my kids are older.

Flisspaps Wed 20-Feb-13 21:37:07

Oh, lovely, lovely gas!

ellesabe Wed 20-Feb-13 21:37:31

Love the giggles!

pegster Wed 20-Feb-13 21:37:31

Laurenlaverne - my DH still says that regularly despite having agreed. He didn't really put up much of a fight but keeps stressing that (if it happens) it is definitely the last one ......

oooggs Wed 20-Feb-13 21:37:59

Good luck collectorofcookbooks - find a local twins group - invaluable!!!

The older brother was so cute I wonder how long it'll take for the novelty to wear off wink

ElectricSheep Wed 20-Feb-13 21:38:53

Ah Mickey Mouse man is soo sweet and sooo oddd grin

LaurenLaverne Wed 20-Feb-13 21:40:19

pegster mine is putting up resistance! keeps muttering about getting the snip, Im sure I will persuade him in the end!

LegoAcupuncture Wed 20-Feb-13 21:40:41

The wins family are just lovely!

The Mickey Mouse man is so quirky, not sure about is girlfriend though, she seems to not like him very much confused

IAmLouisWalsh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:41:30

No, out me fanny! grin

Mononoke Wed 20-Feb-13 21:41:31

Ooooh good luck collecter [Grin] your brave watching this, I was too scared to when I was pregnant.

pegster Wed 20-Feb-13 21:42:35

I hated those adrenalin shakes

Mononoke Wed 20-Feb-13 21:43:32

Yes, horrible.

ellesabe Wed 20-Feb-13 21:44:50


oooggs Wed 20-Feb-13 21:45:05

We had girl/boy twins, wonder how heavy they are and what she is going to call them

ellesabe Wed 20-Feb-13 21:45:28

I mean the twins are exciting. Not the shakes!

BarnYardCow Wed 20-Feb-13 21:45:43

They are braver than me, am happy just to watch now!

ellesabe Wed 20-Feb-13 21:46:19

I was wondering about names too. What is the older brother called?

oooggs Wed 20-Feb-13 21:46:23

Love that Aldi advert!!!!! Makes me chuckle, does everyone else get that advert or does it depend on locality?

curiousgeorgie Wed 20-Feb-13 21:46:33

I love when someone had a c section on here... Mine was a completely lovely experience and it always gives me a little shiver of happy memories smile

oooggs Wed 20-Feb-13 21:46:58

Louis and sister is Danielle

ellesabe Wed 20-Feb-13 21:47:37

My last section was lovely too smile

LegoAcupuncture Wed 20-Feb-13 21:47:45

Ive never had a natural birth, had three sections so love seeing them as was always too nervous to remember mine.

CollectorofCookbooks Wed 20-Feb-13 21:48:06

Already on the case, oooggs grin

Don't feel brave, feel like I want to know all I can. On the other hand, I can't watch crime programmes like NCIS any more, that terrifies me.

ellesabe Wed 20-Feb-13 21:48:39

I think Connor and Mia. For what it's worth!

TheCountessOlenska Wed 20-Feb-13 21:48:47

Ooh good luck collector wow twins!! love it!
I'm due (just the 1) in two weeks so getting well in the mood now, esp watching this grin

Vagndidit Wed 20-Feb-13 21:49:03

C-section seems a hell of a lot more intimidating from an audience pov, I must admit.

I'm actually glad I wasnt in Dh's shoes when our son was born.

Mononoke Wed 20-Feb-13 21:49:33

I think Leo and Evie

JakeBullet Wed 20-Feb-13 21:50:05

Aw this is going to be lovely.....only ever delivered one set of twins.

Here comes the boy....

Mononoke Wed 20-Feb-13 21:50:18


LaurenLaverne Wed 20-Feb-13 21:51:47

Awww, I want a new baby!

ellesabe Wed 20-Feb-13 21:51:56


pegster Wed 20-Feb-13 21:52:14

Soo gorgeous. Phoebe & Zac. smile

oooggs Wed 20-Feb-13 21:52:20

Phoebe 5lb 8oz & Zak 5lb 4oz

Mononoke Wed 20-Feb-13 21:52:28

Aw arms full of babies

IAmLouisWalsh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:52:29

Awwww, those babies....

oooggs Wed 20-Feb-13 21:52:58

Ooopps spelt it wrong blush

Flisspaps Wed 20-Feb-13 21:53:40

Their combined weight was less than DS at birth grin

TheCountessOlenska Wed 20-Feb-13 21:53:50

OMG they are gorgeous!

CitizenOscar Wed 20-Feb-13 21:54:00

Aw man, they're beautiful! Makes me so impatient to meet my baby (still 4.5 months to go)! Lovely family - lovely siblings grin

oooggs Wed 20-Feb-13 21:54:07

Lovely weights as well

pegster Wed 20-Feb-13 21:54:10

Perfect family. It's like the Bobsey twins (book from my childhood!)

sailorsgal Wed 20-Feb-13 21:54:35

Ds would have been called Pheobe if he had been a girl.

They are soooo gorgeous. smile

JakeBullet Wed 20-Feb-13 21:54:40

God I wish they would lay off the images of Midwives eating cake and drinking rarely ever happened in any hospital I worked in although -- midwives-- near a tin of Celebrations is very scary.

LaurenLaverne Wed 20-Feb-13 21:54:54

cute over load!

IAmLouisWalsh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:55:34

Looking at the older kids does make me broody...

We saw a friend with a three month old at the weekend and DS1 in particular was so fascinated. There's only a two year age gap between him and DS2.

Aww that was lovely to see the twins with their big brother and sister

oooggs Wed 20-Feb-13 21:55:54

Flisspaps- wow your ds must have been huge!!!!

BarnYardCow Wed 20-Feb-13 21:56:16

Oh no! Hope they are alright!

pegster Wed 20-Feb-13 21:57:25

Poor girl

IAmLouisWalsh Wed 20-Feb-13 21:57:54

She is so bloody young to be doing this. Just a baby herself.

CitizenOscar Wed 20-Feb-13 21:58:11

They must be so scared sad

Lozario Wed 20-Feb-13 21:58:12

Twins family are the best family this series so far by my reckoning. How lovely was their 10yr old!!

Eek forceps...

JakeBullet Wed 20-Feb-13 21:58:17

Aw I want to give that Dad a cuddle...bless him.

MirandaWest Wed 20-Feb-13 21:58:26

Hope they're OK - feel sorry for the dad too.

oooggs Wed 20-Feb-13 21:58:27

I really feel for them

MirandaWest Wed 20-Feb-13 21:59:12

I was so out of it when I had forceps with DS that I can't really remember it. Was in delivery suite rather than theatre though.

LaurenLaverne Wed 20-Feb-13 21:59:18

oh glad baby Jake is ok

IAmLouisWalsh Wed 20-Feb-13 22:00:04

His poor little forceped face. Bless him.

ellesabe Wed 20-Feb-13 22:00:40

Awww Mickey Mouse man...he was trying so hard to be brave.

Flisspaps Wed 20-Feb-13 22:00:55

oooggs 11lb 7oz. Fucking enormous!

pegster Wed 20-Feb-13 22:01:29

See you all next week

oooggs Wed 20-Feb-13 22:02:18

oMG fisspaps that was big!!!!!!!

Ours twins were 6lb 14oz & 7lb 14oz at 38 weeks

LaurenLaverne Wed 20-Feb-13 22:02:20

Lozario Wed 20-Feb-13 22:02:33

Fliss shock WOW!!!!!

CollectorofCookbooks Wed 20-Feb-13 22:02:44

God, I'm in floods! Not so sure that was a good idea... But how cute were those twins? And in one crib <melts>

whiteandyelloworchid Wed 20-Feb-13 22:04:51

i wonder what the problem is in next weeks then

My5boysandme Wed 20-Feb-13 22:10:20

White I think it's a congenital defect according to info x

whiteandyelloworchid Wed 20-Feb-13 22:16:10

hi myfive, thats what i was thinking

jellybeans Thu 21-Feb-13 16:14:27

I've just watched, great episode. The twins older sibs were so sweet. I have twin boys now age 10 and they weighed over 14lb between them and I had the joy of a combined birth (normal of twin 1 followed by crash section of twin 2), but was so happy to have twins not long after a stillbirth. Loved every minute. Good luck to all of you expecting twins smile

MortifiedAdams Wed 27-Feb-13 08:41:06

Just caught up now. Love love twin family, great older kids!
