I've been lurking ... now I can join you!

I've been lurking on this board because I had a "feeling" with this pregnancy. The midwife told me I was measuring three weeks ahead, and I've been feeling movement for more than two weeks; and sure enough, we got to meet TWO new babies via ultrasound today! 

I admit I am freaking out a bit because my LO will only be 19-20 months old when the twins are born--yikes! I am a bit overwhelmed and anxious that when they come I'll be a stressed-out and unpleasant mama. But I am also excited and can't wait to meet these little ones. :) 

In the meantime, any words of wisdom for managing 3 under 2? Hehe!

  • Congratulations and welcome! It's definitely overwhelming at first, but you manage! There are lots of moms on here with a lo and twins who I'm sure will offer some great advice.

    My LO was 18 months old when the twins were born. It actually has been a lot easier than I anticipated.  DS loves his brothers and gives them lots of hugs and kisses!

    ETA: My advice would be to make sure your homeis baby proofed from floor to ceiling so that your toddler can't get into any trouble while you are busy with your twins.

  • Thanks for the welcome everyone! :) 

    SkyBee, thank you for the advice! We will be moving in two months (out of a two bedroom apartment, so we can't really say here!!), which will give us a good opportunity to make sure our place is completely baby-proofed from the start! We definitely still have a few problem areas that our little guy likes to get into when I'm not looking ...
