Hi! My name is Nickie. I'm 26 years old. I have identical girls (6yrs old) Isabelle and Annabelle and identical twin boy (6 months old) Wyatt and Brant. I'm happily married to a wonderful man, Andy. We have a not so obedient dog named Capri. I have had a wonderful journey figuring out twin living. How lucky are we?! Andy and I are just left wondering "do we dare try again?!"

Hi I'm Jaye single mommy to Ishmael (8), and identical mono mono twin boys Immanuel and Israel (2 1/2 will be 3 in April). I'm 32 years young and Active Duty Military. I'm looking for a twin club in Miami and possible playdate for the twins. According to my Dr it's a fluke that both of my grandmothers also had identical twin boys and I have identical girl twin cousins.

Hi Everyone. I am Mom to Boy/Girl twins born on August 6. Their names are Jameson David and Ambriel Daytona and even though they have been with us for a short time I cannot remember what my life was like without them. They bring smiles to my face every day and I am looking forward to all the new firsts that are ahead of us.

My name is Brandy and I have twin girls that are 14, Brittany Nicole and Ashley Ranae. I also have a daughter that is 11, Emily Ann. They were born at 33 1/3 weeks. It was hard leaving them at the hospital everyday but they were able to come home before the doctors expected. Now they are your average teenagers. I would say after the first 6 months, it became so much easier to handle them. It is amazing how long they would just stare at each other. They would laugh and play together. And when Emily came along, they were so much help.

I'm Becky & mom to two sets of twins. My oldest are almost 4 BB Fat twins & my babies will be 1 year old in a week, they are B/G. I love being the mother of twins & we do get alot of attention from having two sets (although that is starting to become less as the boys are geting older). We were lucky enough to get both sets through adoption. It's been great.

Hello to all. My name is Jolene and I am a 35 yr old single mother of 14 yr old b/g twins. It has been a learning experience for all. We will be adding a new little one to the mix in Dec a little girl is what they say but from what I learned with the twins is that you just really never know until they come out. As I was told I was having both boys and my wonderfully beautiful daughter came out..

Hi Ladies,

I'm a 'new' old member. I posted on Circle of Moms a lot when my twins were younger, but I fell out of the habit. My fraternal B/B twins will be four this December and I'd love to see how other moms handle things like sleep interruptions, fighting, and spending solo-time with each kid.

I'm not sure if I already replied to this - I don't think so, so just in case...
I'm Liz and I have fraternal b/b twins that are 15 months - Ethan and Liam. We are very fortunate to have such wonderful kids - it hasn't been the nightmare so many people warned us about :P I'm due in April with my 3rd (definitely a singleton!) and I am really hoping it's a girl. We'll have 3 under 2, but I know we will manage.

Hi Joanne. Thank you for your respond. Yes it feels like triplets, but sometimes I feel that I am ignoring my daughter.She want's to go out all the time , and I can't go out on my own with 3 of them.When she is happy she kisses her brothers all the time , but when she gets angry OMG ahah .I hope will get better soon , being awake during the night to feed the twins and it takes about 1hr and a half if I don't need to change them and look after 3 children all day it is hard. Thank you and Good Luck to everyone here.

Hi Jeta - our twins were born when our others were 10, 5 qnd 17 months and it was hard!!! We live out of town and my husband would go to work and I was home all day everyday and there were times I thought I would go insane but we got through it. The 3 little ones felt like triplets and I literally stayed home for about 2 years BUT that times has resulted in my children forming close friendships and learning to be content. I can't say I remember much of those 2 years but we got through them. Hope that gives you some courage. I remember breast feeding the twins together, each unde a arm and having the laptop on my lap and emailing. This was my sanity and link to the outside world. LOL. enjoy it passes so quickly!

sometimes its so hard especially around the 5 mth era as its an inbetween time i think, it will soon go and they will be into everything and make you laugh nd cry try and enjoy it. i felt i bit like you round about the same time and i was single so doing all the work, the novalty of newborn ran out and visits became less, but now they are 14mths trying to walk playing with each other last night finnley was trying to sing along to thomas which made me laugh and cry at the same time lol. im going off on one now sorry but what i wanted to say is it willl get easier to get things done when they start playing and it will become more enjoyable im sure xx

Hi Everyone! My name is Megan, I am 21 years old, and a proud parent of identical twin girls Payton Scott and Kaylei Dawn who will turn 2 in just over 3 weeks on October 8th. They are my too little miracles. I had alot of complications and the doctor held off until i was 8 months along before doing an emergency c-section. I had pre-clampsia and gestational diabeties and stayed in the hospital for a week before i went to see the specialist. During that sonogram Payton dropped her heart rate three times and after the third would not bring it back up. So they sent me over to the main hospital to get the girls out. They thought we were gonna lose Payton but after I had the girls it was Kaylei that we almost lost cause when she would exhale her lungs would stick together. Kaylei spent the first month of her life in the hospitals prenatal unit and Payton spent the first month and a week. But we got them both home by Thanksgiving. I just dont know what I would do with out them. They are definately entertaining. lol
