Oh its a blast to have two! There's some scary parts but its nothing you won't be able to work your way through...you are going to be tired and if you have a great support system that will help out a lot! There's so much with twins I wouldn't know where to start on the answers..what specific things do you want to know???

Having two is a blessing from God.  It is great because they are instant friends and they each have someone to play with.  I have twin girls that just turned one the 5th of May.  They are so wonderful.  They both light up when you walk in especially after a nap.  It is the greatest gift.  If I may suggest read the book Twelve hours of sleep by twelve weeks old.  It is a fab book.  We have our girls sleeping through the night at 3 months.  It is all about putting them on a schedule.  Remember to swaddle too.  Works like a charm.  Like the last post... there is so much with twins.  I had an emergency c-section due to leaking amniotic fluid.  My partner was great and the doctors were fab.  I had no issues and mine both were good sized, due to the fact they came five weeks early.  I am here for you if you have questions or anything.  Just let me know!!

Def like ream said schedule. I could never get mine on one cuz the hospital put them on one where they fed an hr apart and I couldn't change that for the world of me..my DH was good, he worked a lot so I had great help from my dad, I wish I would of known bout that book but it prolly wasn't out when my babies were born. I had one boy natural then his bro was c-section. They were early 8 1/2 weeks but only spent 4 & 5 weeks in the NICU they don't have any problems from that either thankfully. I dressed my boys the same till they were alittle over two even though they weren't identical lol. They are a load of even though tough work. Are you planning to put them in the same crib @ first? I did till they could roll and it worked great with them. Any more questions just post then! Let us know what the babies are!!

Having twins is amazing. I have boy/girl & they are almost 3 1/2. It can be very challenging at times, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. Just try to set a schedule from day 1...feedings, naps, bedtime etc...as they get older this is def. a big help! Congrats!
