Congrats!! Some advice I got while pg with twins was to try and gain the bulk of the weight early, because there's a greater chance of delivering early than with a singleton. Don't be afraid to have that cheeseburger and milkshake from McD's to do it, either. That one was taken straight from a book on twins, triplets and higher order multiples. If everything wasn't still in boxes from the move, I'd go find it for the exact title.
Take it easy. Be prepared to either stop working or work from home around 24 weeks. Some women can go longer, and I thought I would too. Oh, heck no! I was waddling too bad to make it the three blocks to the office, and got permission to work from home.
Plan your trip to the hospital early. Have a bag ready from week 32 until delivery. Take birthing classes early, too. You might go close to full term (36-38 weeks is closer to term for twins), but you might also go early.
