Welsh: so

I would like to say the following in Welsh:
"My 2 young sons get up at 6 o clock so I have get up at 6 o clock too"
How do you say the "so in that sentence?
My try for the rest of the sentence is:
"mae fy dau fab ifanc I yn codi am chwech o'r gloch (so) mae rhaid i mi codi am chwech o'r gloch hefyd."

Diolch yn fawr!

    As Andras said, felly works in your sentence:

    "mae fy nau fab ifanc i yn codi am chwech o'r gloch felly mae'n rhaid i mi codi am chwech o'r gloch hefyd."

    :)

    You don't need the yn - you can definitely say mae rhaid i...

    Imi should be spelt as one word I think.

    Yeah, the "yn" is optional, but you wouldn't spell "i mi" as "imi" unless you're being particularly formal.

    A bit late, but anyway:
    felly is right; "i mi" is right, "i fi" also possible (it's what I say/write); "mae rhaid" or just "rhaid" is best, though "mae'n rhaid" is also possible.
    But it should be "rhaid i mi/fi godi", not "codi" (grammatical mutation).

    Ah, well spotted. I didn't see that mistake, but you're right, codi does need to be mutated here :)
