Yesterday we got the shock of a life time, we're expecting twins!! We're 23 and have a 3 year old, who will be 4 when these two are born and I just don't know what to think! I'm scared that she's going to feel left out, so I plan to include her in everything. Once things get settled after they come home have one day where it's just me and her doing something together etc. But does anyone else have tips on what to do to make sure your first does not feel overwhelmed and left out? I can't imagine my little girl being upset, she's such a loving caring girl and she's excited to be a big sister, but I'm scared it might change when the time comes!

Want to hear something crazy, I received a call from the doctors office that they want to schedule a ultrasound for the week of the 17th of march because they believe they see a third sac behind. WHAT? I will literally have a heart attack I think.

Thank you! She has held my friends baby when he was about 3 months old, that's when she said "mom we need to have a baby" shes so mature for her age so I'm not completely freaking out but do have those worries ya know? She wants to pick out clothes and help decorate their room, she's already wanting to be so involved and I'm really glad.

You know what. As long as she is waiting in the waiting room when the baby is born she will feel more comfortable and excited. I mean unless it is night but even if it is make sure she gets to meet them first thing in the morning. Make sure she will always be there and some parents never let their older children hold them but she will not feel left out because she will be allowed to hold them gently with supervision. I hope this helped. Of course she will go through stages where she feels as if she is treated with less attention but I think all oldests feel that way(that was me:-)).
