Double the trouble. :laughing: (im a twin. My mom always said that what one was not into the other one was)

You’ll be fine. So thinking so negatively and enjoy the process.

That’s awesome! I know you got to be nervous but remember healthy momma + happy momma= easier pregnancy. You will be just fine just make sure you continue to take your prenatals and get sleep, you wont get as much when they are here lol. Congrats!!

Identical or fraternal?

Omg congratulations! I would be scared to have twins but that means you got 2 amazing blessings :heart_eyes:

I had my twins at 35… I think it’s natural to worry about carrying multiples but don’t stress. I had a a rocky start with some bleeding but it mended itself out and I ended up carrying full term and had them at 38 weeks by c section Healthy at 7lbs and 6lbs 10oz. Get lots of rest. Drink lots of water. Eat when your hungry (It’s really no different then being single with one other then more ultrasounds and appointments to monitor babies growth). I’m sure everything will be great! And congratulations! It really is a blessing.

Congratulations momma :two_hearts: I got pregnant at 20 with twin boys. I worked up till the day I had them at 37 weeks and 1 day, I had them via C section because my first one was breached. Take it easy, take deep breaths and everything will be okay. :heart: They are honestly easier in some ways than one baby because they have each other to soothe and play with!

My twin pregnancy was honestly the easiest. The c-section was the worst part of the whole thing and not being able to hold them right away, but everything went so smoothly.

That’s pretty much everyone’s reactions when they find out their having twins. It’ll be ok. Twins are so much fun, but a handful too. As hard as it is don’t stress, it’ll just make everything harder. Congrats and good luck.

Be prepared for anything and don’t be disappointed if your birth doesn’t go as planned.
I wanted to do a natural birth but I got sick really fast and had to have my twins at 31 weeks. Try not to stress and enjoy the pregnancy. My best piece of advice is don’t let yourself get hungry. I would eat small meals 4-5 times a day if I didn’t eat I would be super sick and throw up so never letting my stomach be empty actually helped me. Lots of water, rest and don’t be afraid to ask for help

Lord please i need twins,focus on your blessing dear.

I’m also pregnant with twins. So far no problems yet. I too worry sometimes but my best advice is not to listen to people’s horror stories about their nieces cousins wife lol. Best of luck and congratulations!

The risk of twins having a birth defect is really low and with technology they can detect super early if anything is wrong. I have two 10 yr olds and they are best friends. I do recommend getting a diaper genie for all the diapers you will using.

I helped my sister when she had twins, IDK about carrying them but after birth for the first 2/3 months they had to sleep together. It’s crazy fun! Good luck
