You got this! I am an identical twin born to a 35 year old 115 lb mother in the 80s. Keep in close touch with your doctor, expect a few differences (my mother was told not to walk up stairs in the last few months, eg), but there's no reason you can't have a fully healthy pregnancy. And, today, my identical twin delivered twins to a small-framed mother (she's a surgeon, performed the C) - everyone is healthy!

Thank you so much for this.

Hey! No experience with twins but can speak to the MFM pregnancy experience being pretty different than a regular OB. My first pregnancy was low risk (until it wasn’t), which made all my following pregnancies high risk through MFM. The feeling is just a lot different— they’re used to complicated pregnancies as well as an anxious mom to be. Many have emotional support programs you can sign up to as well that include a therapist and/or psychiatrist, etc. Twins is so exciting but I absolutely understand the fear there too. Sending you love and uneventful pregnancy vibes 🙏🏼🙏🏼

Just had my NT ultrasound at 12w5d for my twins and it made me feel SO much better. Even though this was my fifth ultrasound, (IVF), it was so much more thorough and left me feeling very positive :) Especially since it occurs right when you're finishing the first trimester You're almost there!

I am getting ready to send my 2 year old toddler to a toddler program next week for the first time. Have to fill out a form “bathroom waiver”, which is basically allowing teachers at the school to clean my child after a potty, including genital area. I feel uneasy about this but I know I have to let them… I assume all parents have signed such waiver?

If I sponsor a child for $1 a day, can I take 6 months off work? Serious replies only, please!

5 months pregnant with our second, a boy. Our first is a girl. We’re debating circumcising him or not. My husband is, and everyone we know typically does it. But I think it’s a barberic practice. Opinions? Posting to get more of a wide range of opinions (nationally in us and globally). What would you do? Did you do? We will obviously talk to our doctor too but curious on general sentiment around circumcision.

Legit confused about the "wait and see/ I'm low risk" vaccine crowd. I'm low risk too but I got vaccinated for me as well as to contribute to the safety of others by stopping the spread.

To be honest, until I saw a recent massive Florida verdict I had no idea any of that litigation was still ongoing.

It seems partners are much more flexible with associates who have kids than with those who don’t. If it’s okay for my colleague with a kid to leave at 5 pm and log on later, why isn’t that the same for me (no kids)? My obligations might be different, but I still have a life and want to be able to do certain things, like catch that evening workout class or cook dinner for my partner. As you can probably tell, my firm is operating 100% in person. There is no point here — I’m just whining.

They mentioned that they would have the written offer in a couple days, so it doesn’t sound like it’s super pressing for me to start right away.
