HI, I just found out on Tues that we are expecting twins in July. Twins are common in my family. When they arrive I will have 4 under 4. I plan to nurse and CD. I will have 3 in cloth dipes but since both of my girls are allergic to sposies, these 2 will be in cloth from day 1. Dd1 weaned at 34 mos and dd2 will be weaned before the babies get here.

Anyone else pg with twins?

Congratulations on your twin pregnancy!!! I remember so well those feelings of finding out there wasn't just one but TWO little ones inside of me. What a surreal and AMAZING feeling that was! My girls are now 2-years-old and I can honestly say that the time has flown by. They are such a joy and such a blessing. Run out and buy the book "Mothering Multiples" that is published by LLL. It's a must have.

Congratulations Angi!!! That is awesome...and probably a bit overwhelming...but just awesome! Just like 1plus2 said, man I rememeber that feeling when I just found out. I have to say that everyday I still wonder how did I get so lucky for this to happen to me.

And 4 under 4 and cd'ing 3 of 'em! You go girl! When mine were born I had 3 under 1 1/2. Now my ds is 24 mos and my girls are 6 mos. I don't cd but am very much considering it - just trying to work up the courage of adding more laundry to my sleepless life.

Welcome!!

Congratulations! My twins were born just last week. You will have your work cut out for you, but what an awesome, rewarding experience.

Congrats!! Very exciting. Your big girls will be so excited.

We started CDing for the first time with the twins (born last September). I love it! (My 6 yo still wears sposies at night; do I get to say I have 3 in diapers, LOL?)

I just found out on Thursday that we are having twins due in September! I'm still shocked but I'm really thrilled. I'm looking for any advice/books anything I can get!
