It's twins!!! — The Bump

It's twins!!!

My husband and I are expecting twins with a due date of May 31st!  We're so excited but I am such a worry wort! How do you ladies deal with thoughts of bedrest, premature babies, vaginal delivery vs. c-section, double the daycare, double the everything?!?!?

It's such blessing but so much to think about too!

Also- I'm a little technically challenged- how do I "grab" my ticker and use it continuously?  I've copied it but then it's not always there...

Re: It's twins!!!

  • congrats!! and you put the thoughts out of your head and deal with whatever  comes up as it comes up. dr. stuff you talk about with your dr. (ie method of delivery, bed rest, etc). as for day care you decide that like you would with one. as for double everythign else? stock up on diapers and burp rags and like i said, you deal with the rest as it comes. good luck!! happy and healthy :)
  • Congratulations! My best advice is to not worry. All of those things might happen, but do your best to put them o ut of your mind. Worrying won't help a thing. Everyone here always recommends Dr. Luke's book on multiples, so get that. and in terms of your ticker, put it in your signature when you go to "my bump" then edit profile. paste it there.

  • congrats and welcome!

    Prayer helps me with the worry - the worry is worse once the babies are here, so you have to deal and get used to it :)

    Knowledge also helps me - Dr. Luke's book is a must! It will help you understand how to have a healthy twin pg.

  • Congrats times two!  It is alot to think about when you first find out, but you need to take it one step at a time.  We were really lucky and didn't have to many issues up until this week.  The financial aspect of it has been hard to deal with, but we are making adjustments and exploring all of our day care options.
