Pregnant with Quadruplets

Hi all mummies, babies and bumps

I just wanted to introduce myself and say hi to you all. Yes the title is correct lol, I found out at 10 weeks I was expecting quads (naturally conceived). Scans have shown that I have two ID twins and two fraternals. I am now 19 weeks and everything is going well so far. I also have a 27 month old son, so I am really worried about how I am going to cope, but I am just taking it one day at a time.

I am also part of the mumsnet bloggers network with my diary blog which will follow my journey through pregnancy and beyond. Please have a look if you are interested: www.emmasquaddiary.blogspot.com

Have a great Christmas!

Wonderful news! naturally conceived quads is a real achievement! And what an interesting mixture of fraternal and identical. If the size of your tum at 19 weeks is anything to go by, they're all doing really well in there. Make sure you take it easy over Christmas. I hope your DH is cooking the lunch (and letting you do all the eating). Do keep blogging.

@Tenebrist - they are doing well which is such a relief, currently they're all sitting on the 50th percentile. He's been amazing and I'm definitely doing all the eating in our house at the moment smile

Oh my, I am feeling faint at hearing quads, I hope you were laying down when they told you.

I am off to read your blog this evening it looks like a rollercoaster read.

Take very good care. I guess once they are here we aren't likely to see you for a while because you might be a bit busy.

QuadMama Thu 22-Dec-11 20:43:50

Thanks so much ladies smile!

@ ShowOfHands - hehehehe that's exactly how i've been ever since I found out smile

Great blog. A good pal of mine lives in your neck of the woods and has recently had twins; she mentioned that she was planning to go to a playgroup for multiples and their siblings. I can find out details if you like?
