I am first time too, with twins due this June 18. I will be 33 when they're born. We were a little surprised that it is twins - but I admit to hoping for twins. I have nothing to compare it to, but I will say, I'm already showing which I've heard is normal with twins.

These two aren't IVF - but my husband has twins in his family. I think these babies are fraternal, so still surprising, but i guess we'll find out for sure on delivery day!
If it helps, I've been reading "The Everything Twins Triplets & More" by Pamela Fierro. It's pretty good so far - not all worry or stress filled - just basics. I'm still trying to figure out how to nurse two at once, but there is thankfully a class locally I can take that may help. I'm also considering those Itzbeen Baby Care Timers. A lot of people like phone apps for newborns, but not sure if they work well w/ twins. Toddlers - I'm just praying my Sister In Law moves here with her 4 older kids. Also check out if there's a Mothers of Multiples MOM group in your area. Best wishes and keep posting!
