This is my first pregancy and I am pregnant with twins. I have friends and family that have been able to give me pregnancy advice and whatnot, but none of them have had twins. I am nervous, yet very excited. Any advice from mothers of twins or expecting mothers of twins is much welcome.



Thanks

April

My best advice would be to get everything organised early on so you don't have worry later when you start getting tired and exhausted easily carrying extra weight. Congratulations how exciting. Like Stephanie said planning just goes out the window.

That's okay. It's more common than you'd think. The developers of this site don't really seem to know what they're doing, honestly. :/

My bad Kate. I just joined this site today so I am just getting used to it. I noticed no one had responded but failed to check out the date.

Pretty sure she's given birth by now seeing as this post is nearly two years old.

The only advice I would give right now is to be excited you are having twins. I was so dumbfounded to find out how hard it was but you wont realize it until they are here. Best advice is to start planning out one week at a time for each family member to stay over and help. I had my mom for the first week, my mother in law for the second week, my grandma for the 3rd week and then my grandma came over every day about 8 am to help until about 5 pm until I went back to work when they were three months old. Life just kind of happens. I am a planner, big time, and there is no planning for what life is bringing. I just through the whole planning concept out the window when the twins were born and we just go with the flow.
