  • I was 17 when I had my twin boys. (25 yrs ago) I can only tell you that it is not easy and without a good support system for me it would have been nearly impossible. Mine were preemies and spent a month in the hospital before I could bring them home. My mom told me that they could not have better babysitters so I should get as much rest during this time as I could. I also had the best Aunt in the world, she took a 1 year leave of absence from her job and gave me 2 hours everyday to do whatever I wanted. Most important is to not loose yourselve in the equation. You are the person these babies will rely on and you have to be aware of your own needs as well. My babies were put on seperate schedules in hospital so sleeping became a thing of the past the minute they came home. Up every other hour for feeding. I have very little memory of the first 2 yrs. Do not be afraid to ask for help from family or friends & love them! Congrats!

  • Yes it was and i reported you! LIke others have said stay positive and ask for help if you need it! When i was in birthing class a girl in there 17 first time she had sex she got pregnant with twin girls she was still with the dad though. Well i saw her the other day and she is no longer with the dad, but she loves her girls very much. She said it is and was hard but she wouldnt have it any other way. So just think you will have to babies who will grow up to be the best of friends! Good luck!!!

  • Good luck hun..and don't worry you'll fall into a groove and it will become natural to you. You are going to need some help the first week so you can recover.
