I'm pregnant for the first time with twins and have NO IDEA what to expect. Everyone keeps telling me that I'm not going to be able to handle it and that its going to be so hard having two. I'm trying to see it as these are my first so I wont know what its like to only have one, two will be normal for me. However, I'm becoming discouraged and I'm only in my 5th week of pregnancy and dont know anyone other than my mother-in-law (my husband is a twin) that I can talk to. I'm overwhelmed and I know that these boys are nothing but a blessing and I honestly wouldn't change it for anything, but I dont know what to expect. The only thing my mother-in-law says is that it will come naturally when I have them. Could someone please give me a heads up on what to expect?!? I'm beginning to start freaking out.
