I'm starting to feel like I'm the only single Mom of infant twins. I have been a single Mom since 9 weeks into pregnancy with my twins....they are now 7 months old. I live with my parents as I am trying to go back to school to finish my education (I am 26). It has been a VERY rough road. My parents are older and have tried to help out as little as they can as they both still work full-time jobs. So......any other single Mom's of twins out there????????

Yay its nice to meet more single mums with twins! I no you posted this along time ago but im also 26 and have 19 month old twin boys. As stupid as i sound i did not no i was preg until i was about 5 months, i have been single since that day but honestly can't imagine life any other way. I have great support from my family and lived with my parents until the boys where 10 months old, i now live on my own but wake up every day to two beatiful little boys who light up my life

I am a single mama of 7 year old twin girls. At first it was super hard, their dad was in and out of the picture ( he has been out for the last 4 years) and with me working and going to school it was so hard. My parents and sister helped out so much. I dont know how I would have done it without their help. There were times I felt like a zombie. I went to work from 4am to 1pm and then school from 5pm to 10pm. There would be nights where I would just cry and cry, with allt he stress and guilt and just plain out what the hell am I doing feelings it was really bad. But each day gets easier. You are not alone out there, you are never alone. Just take it one day at a time. Enjoy every second with your children they grow so fast. I mean mine are starting 2nd grade soon and I swear it was just yesterday they were these 2 lil babies driving me crazy :o) Anyways stay postive, be happy for the help you do have and just remember it will get easier. And just enjoy and be happy :o)

I realize you posted this a while ago, but I hope you're still keeping in touch. I have also been on my own with my twin boys since about 6 weeks preggo. I also felt like the only one out there! I realize now that it only feels that way because none of us have much time or energy to be on the computer much! hahaha. I feel your pain - I always joke that I wouldn't wish that first 6 months on anyone. No joke, it's really really difficult, and nobody really gets it. My boys are 3 now, and I can assure you that you will get through it and things will get better. They probably already have. If someone had told me 2 years ago that I'd be the one saying that I'd have sprayed my juice out of my nose. I recently moved to be closer to family because I really was losing my mind trying to do everything. I'm happy to hear you have your parents to help out - even if just a little. It's amazing what a couple of hours here and there can do to recharge you. ANyways, just wanted to reassure you that you aren't alone, and personally I'm happy to have found some understanding ears myself!
take care!

I HAVE TWINS THAT ARE 3. YES ITS HARD WORK BUT BELEIVE ME, YOU WILL BE FINE. TRY TO FIND SUPPORT GROUPS IN YOUR AREA. DO YOU HAVE CHILD CARE ASSISTANCE. I PUT MY TWINS IN CHILDCARE AT 2 MONTHS CAUSE I HAD TO GO TO WORK TO SUPPORT THEM AND MY OTHER TWO KIDS. IT WILL GET EASIER IN TIME.

I am also a single mother of twins, my girls are 4 years old. The only thing that I can say is be glad that you have supportive parents and it will get easier. It may get harder first, but it will get easier. Good luck.
