I'm shocked and scared out of my mind, to say the least! This will be #7 & # 8 for us. I'm looking for any good book recommendations, advice, or just some hugs! It still hasn't sunk in yet, but I'm still early in my pregnancy (almost 8 weeks). I'm surprised DH is as excited as he is, it's almost funny!

It's overwhelming, isn't it? I remember being so excited, and terrified, and worried, and like a zillion other things, all at the same time. (And I only had one other child...)

I would really recommend Mothering Multiples, and also the Barbara Luke book-- what's it called again? Somebody here has got to remember. Congratulations!!!!

What to Expect When Expecting Twins, Triplets, or Quads (or something like that). I can't remember if you're in the states, but if you are I have a copy I can send you. I listed it on PBS but no one is biting, LOL!

Thank you for the book rcommendations! Our library does not have them, so I'll be looking on eBay or Amazon for cheap, used copies.

Llyra - yes, the emotions are overwhelming!

Annette - I'm going to PM you!

you can also look into your local parents of multiples club, they often have a lending library of pregnancy books, plus they are going to be great folk to know!

 

and congrats!!

OK BTDT ladies, are there any websites you'd recommend? I'm going to have to wait to buy books, but if there's any websites that I can read in the meantime, I'd appreciate it!
