New here...found out today we're expecting twins! - Page 2

post #21 of 24
Congratulations!! My twins just turned one in May. Being a mom of multiples is an amazing and beautiful experience.

I liked Dr. Luke's book also, eat as much as you can, and as healthily as you can. I made it to almost 38 weeks and my babies were 5lbs12oz and 6lb15oz.

Congrats! Congrats! Twins are an absolutely wonderful addition and we have been having a blast these past nearly 10 months now.

I say water and protein and a positive attitude is the best thing you can have for a twin pg!

Good luck!

Welcome & congrats. Having twins has been such a blessing for me. Yeah, there are challenges, but I'm thankful every second of the day for my little guys.

I also recommend Having Twins by Elizabeth Noble. I found her chapter on nutrition to be something every person alive should read. It's really comprehensive and isn't limited at all to pregnancy.

I have 2 older children as well. Mine were 2 and 4 months & 5 and 3 months when my twins were born. They were born full term at home, with their big sisters in attendance. They weighed 6 lbs 14 oz & 7 lbs 13 oz. You can do it! Enjoy the ride!

yahoo!! twins rule!!

i'm new to the board and am so excited to have found it ~ and ssoo many twins...all right!!

my b/g twins will be 2 august 15th and just like so many others have said ~ the first year's hard and ~ the time flies by!!

the most important advice that i received and continue to pass on is ->hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. those babes, and you, need lots of water.

my twins were born at 33.1 at 3.13 and 4.7, didn't need any respiratory assistance at all. they stayed in the nicu for 3 weeks as i was exclusively breastfeeding. luckily, my hospital was set up to board nursing moms, so i never left until they did.

good luck to you!
