Hey my twin boys were 14months when i found out i was expecting again, i gave birth to my 3rd child 1st march 2009 and 10 days later my twins turned 2, i found the pregnancy abit harder than with twins i was alot bigger with one child than with the twins and i also couldnt deal with stinky bums or baby food the smell always made me sick, after the birth my son was rushed away to great ormond street so i wasnt home with my twins, but it is hard to start with u never have time to sit down just make sure you have plenty help at home x

My twins(aubree and Nicholas) will be 18 months when this little girl (Annabelle) arrives in 10 weeks. My belly showed much sooner almost immediately but now I'm still the same size at 7 months as I was at 3 months so it definitely doesn't get bigger, just pops out quick then stops. My Dr. Said I can deliver either way but I am opting for cesarian BC there is a chance ( though VERY slight) of uterine rupture in which case I would be rushed for emergency cesarean and be out for the birth and I definitely do NOT want to miss that. Plus I already know what to expect with cesarean so it made more sense. Congratulations and good luck!

i had my little girl, now 2 1/2 when my twin boys were 25 months.
i found looking after just 1 baby so easy and such a pleasure to be able to focus on one baby at a time. i also made sure we were organised within an inch of our lives to make sure we had as much help as we could for the first few weeks.
also i stayed in hospital for a week to have a chance to get to know her before coming home. my top tip is to have a lockable room where you can feed your baby and your twins can play without hurting/disappearing. and have snack/drinks/books available for them there

Hmmm, I will have 13 mth old twins when my lil one is born at the end of may...

Pregnancy with twin toddlers not much different then having a single toddler and being pregnant...just a lot of

My Stomache did show a lot sooner because i hadnt lost all my baby weight from the twins
3rd and 4th question no clue...have had all my children (3 at the moment and one on the way) vaginal deliveries

I did it the other way around, a single child, then twins, so I can't answer all of your questions...but I hope that your twins will play together and entertain each other while you have a tiny newborn, they won't get nearly so bored as my older son is/was when the twins were born.

You may find this pregnancy much, much easier on you. Other than the fact that napping may be nonexistant with twin toddlers! Your belly muscles are probably stretched out, and you may pop sooner, but shouldn't get nearly as big.

I'm not sure about the VBAC, I had a C with my second pregnancy.

Good luck!
