I have 3 other ladies that I know IRL who have blogged to me about their experiences having twins. They have said things like
"the first 2 months were like going through the valley of the shadow of death... You'll literally live from moment to moment, not even day to day. I had it easier in that I had my twins first and then a toddler later on, but it was still very, very hard."
"I lived with my family the my last trimester with the twins. I did nothing. They cooked, cleaned, did our laundry and took care of [my daughter]. It was a huge blessing."
"This is a mama talking from experience. It will be all you can do to get a shower every so often. You think it will be just 2x the work of one..no, it is like 4 times the work. "
I'm seriously terrified by their comments! Is it really THAT hard having twins? I'm doing everything I can to prepare ahead of time so I won't have to do any shopping after 24 weeks. I'm nearly done shopping now. I'm planning to feed the boys 1 bottle of pumped milk a day after they are 2 weeks old so that I can have a break sometimes and let someone else feed them. Is there anything else I can do?
