    Hi everyone! I am brand-new to this site and very excited to be here. I have been searching for some groups that focus on twin pregnancies or similar topics and was unsuccessful until I found twinstuff. I am a 27 y/o mother of a beautiful baby boy I lovingly refer to as Optimus. (his in-utero nickname). I am currently just-shy of 19 weeks along with twins I am carrying as a surrogate. I am a small-business owner so my internet time is sporadic, but I look forward to getting to know all of you, and hopefully learn some things along the way. :) My 19 week u/s is tomorrow, and my level 2 sonogram is next monday. Not sure what to expect, but hopefully all is well and maybe we will even find out what flavor they are. (I am voting both girls)
