Aprehensive E

i am 20 weeks pregnant with Twins!!! i only found out this week during my 20 week scan. no history of Twins... i have 4 at home!!! ages 10, 4, 2, 1!!!
i just can't get my head around how exactly this is going to work... my main concern at this stage is how do you breast feed 2 at once? and cope with the others?? Aprehensive E


Mine are almost eleven months now. This first year has been exhausting (I also have an almost three year old), but these two of mine are so much fun. And, I should add, that no one knows what it's like except us (not even those mothers who have babies less than a year apart).


How true. I'm the proud and exhausted mother of ten month old twins. I don't think they've stopped moving since the day they were born. They rolled early. They crawled early. They're on the verge of letting go of the furniture and taking off across the well baby-proofed house.

I wish someone had given me this advice when I was pregnant. I would never have worked until my 36 week of pregnancy. I would have rented movies, read voraciously and vegged out as much as possible, even though finding a comfortable position would have been next to impossible.

Before twins I just rolled my eyes, now they really do see all sorts of things from every conceivable angle.

I'd add a point about having toys that make noise - the louder the better. If my tired eyes aren't quite focused on their play, I know where my kids are and what they're doing by the repetitive musack. I know these toys drive parents of singletons crazy, but I think they've saved my sanity!

Of course, I'd do it all again in a heartbeat. They really are double the fun!
