Re: twins

congratulations to you too! how is it different? I have nothing to compare... I think I've been pretty lucky so far. Nauseous but not throwing up and tired. I hear that will get better now I'm heading into trimester 2...

Re: twins

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.

Re: twins

congratulations! I'm showing too but its nice to hear that you're in the same boat... I wasn't too surprised to see twins on that ultrasound. I have lots of twins in my family and we succeeded through IVF... I am super excited but a little nervous about handling 2 infants... and then down the road - toddlers!

Re: 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!
