I've never had kids before and my husband and I aren't in a financially comfortable place to have twins. I'm petite and a waitress, so there's a very good chance that our income will be dramatically reduced near the end of my pregnancy if/when I get put on bed rest then need time for recovery from a c-section. He keeps pushing for us to spend money on fixing up our house (understandable because it seems more like a bachelor pad right now, I've never been big on nesting until right about now) but I want to sock everything away in savings so I'm not a ball of stress at the end and during the first few months of having our beautiful babies. At the same time, I know that having our house feel like a "real home" and not having to worry about things like leaky faucets and old dirty carpets will make it easier to relax and enjoy our new family.
In addition to all of this, I'm having a really hard time finding twin-specific help out there, even online. It seems that every site regurgitates the same basic information, and all the advice/information I get from friends and family refers to their singleton pregnancy as if it will be the same for me, just twice as hard or twice as expensive. As a minimalist, I want everything to be as practical as possible without losing out on comfort and ease of use. I must sound impossible, but this is what I'm going through and I'm really overwhelmed and stressed out right now.
As of today I'm 15 weeks, and don't let me mislead you; despite all of this craziness my husband and I are beyond excited to meet our little sweetlings, and I'm especially excited to get through this pregnancy with my sanity (mostly) intact. Thanks in advance for any help or advice you ladies have to offer!
