I had my first ultrasound. And ladies you were right, I got 2 little sweet pies baking in my oven. Their heart beat was just ticking away. Me and hubby are sooo happy! But we have a disconnection about truly believing I'm pg. Its weird because we see the ultrasound pics and I feel pg, but it seems that we won't fully believe it until my stomach grows and we feel the babies moving. I do hope it sinks in before that happens. I am healthy and 49 years old, am I considered a "high risk" pregnancy?

Your age and the twins make you high risk..best to see a high risk doc for your pregnancy.

Twins are a higher risk pregnancy. But, first, congratulations! I had my twins about a month shy of my 49th birthday. My board buds kept asking me whether I was seeing a perinatologist, so I asked my OB/GYN whether I should be seeing one, and her response was, well, if anything goes wrong; but you're fine now. But everything is subject to change, as they say.

So, regardless of whether you're seeing a regular OB or a peri, they'll be monitoring you closely -- I remember being astonished when I learned how few U/S's a singleton mom gets! Ask your OB what's OK in terms of exercise, b/c it's good to do everything you can to keep you abs, back, and legs strong to carry those babies. I used some prenatal Pilates, yoga, and body toning DVD's after I was cleared to exercise after being on pelvic rest due to an SCH early on.

Take care,

That is wonderful news. As has been siad, just the fact that you are having twins makes yoru pregnancy technically a high-risk one. When I was last pregnant(m/c) I went to a perinatalogist. It was great. You get to see the baby more because you are high risk and they test for everything. At the end of the day, a high risk Dr will liekly make you feel more at ease. All the best and a H & H 9 months.

Congratulations on your pregnancy and your twins! As others have said, yes, you are considered High Risk due to a multiple pregnancy and being AMA (Advanced Maternal Age). I would highly suggest that you seek out a high risk OB / Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) specialist for your pregnancy. While everything will likely be just fine, they are very skilled in taking care of patients with these factors and you will be watched much more closely than a regular OB would do. They also have better monitoring equipment which is a nice benefit for you. With my pregnancy, I saw my MFM every 2 weeks and had an ultrasound each time. It was wonderful to get so many opportunities to see our little one growing. I was monitored very closely and still ended up going into labor at 32 weeks and this time it was a singleton. Best wishes to you and wishing you a safe, healthy, easy pregnancy. Congrats, again!
