Two boys!

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Today I had my anatomy scan ultrasound (I'm just under 21 weeks) and both babies look completely healthy and normal, which is so wonderful!! We also found out that we're having two boys! Eek! I was convinced (for no good reason) that at least one was a girl, so now I'm trying to get my head wrapped around this. (but overall very happy)

Any advice for me, from mamas of twin boys? (or from anyone else, for that matter?)

Twin boys are awesome! I never thought I'd have ONE boy, let alone two! Dh and I figured that there was no possible way one of them wasn't a girl, since we already had 2 girls but alas, they surprised us both! It's been a lot of fun and very interesting to see how instinctively *boy* they really can be. I'm so thankful now that I'm getting to experience boys, although I admit I was very intimidated before having them at the thought of raising sons. It's great though! Congratulations!

Aw, I have twin boys and it's... um... my advice is to invest in some good toilet cleaner, they just can't aim to save their lives!

Congratulations! I'm having twin boys also.

I have a son already and I think I'm good with boys, so I'm looking forward to two more. I guess if you are good with Pee and Dirt you'll do great!

I was shocked to find out two boys as well...I was sure that baby A was a girl. No, my Joe is all boy. They are 15 months and it is a LOT of fun!
Congratulations! Best to you all.

YEAH for BOYS!!!!:::

I knew I was a good mom of boys when I saw fake bugs and spiders on the floor and they didn't freak me out!! Both my DH and I have sisters so the boy thing was completely new to me!! We have lots of energy at our house, but lots of fun!

I have my own bathroom- a must with 5 boys!!!

Congratulations Mama! Feel free to PM me if you have any boy questions!!

Wow! What is it with everyone having twin boys right now?

I'm 31 weeks along with my own little wild men. It's taking me quite awhile to get my head wrapped around it too. I guess it will be easier once they're actually out.

My advice:
-get used to dirt. and lots of it.
-be ready for some very energetic and active children.
-enjoy every minute of it.

My guys are 16 months now, and they are partners in crime. It's amazing to watch them follow each other around (usually making mischief), and now they are starting to pretend together: SO cute!

I never thought I really wanted to have a boy, but I am so so glad now to have my healthy, happy little men. I wouldn't trade them for anything in the whole world.

I'd like to add to the above. "Become comfortable with urine".

Boys love to pee. They love to talk about pee, watch themselves pee, watch dogs pee, watch dad pee, listen to mom peeing. You get the idea!

I had one that was fascinated with peeing into different things. We'd find a pop bottle in the trash with urine in it.

valkyrina- I just have to ask- we've been doing the boy thing for 12 1/2 years now, and I've never had any of my older boys get into so much stuff!!!! I'm wondering if it's a twin thing??? They figured out how to get the fridge open this week- one got a container of spaghetti sauce, proceeded to the couch and dumped the whole thing over himself and the couch!! They never play with toys!! They only want to play with stuff in the house. The word NO means nothing to them. I need to post on gentle discipline!!!

Do any of you have boys that do this????
