So, all you moms who have had twins in the past, I need all your good advice and tip so I can carry two healthy babies to term! TIA!!
Highly recommend eating while you can. Plenty.
Get in touch with your local moms of multiples group and start going now! Whether you're going to a hospital for delivery or not, your local hospital should have their info.
Go to LLL meetings! Get the Mothering Multiples book.
REST! You'll need it.
Come join us at the Parenting Mults forum, we have tons of info.
As for what to do now: EAT.PROTEIN.DRINK.WATER.REPEAT. That's all!

YumaDoula, I am on the Brewer Diet, so I am definitely getting my share of protein - like 100 grams/day. I have been better today about the water. I will definitely waddle over to the parenting mults forum - thanks!
Knowerofnada, I did have a hunch I was carrying twins, mostly because my hcg levels were so high, and this is an IVF pregnancy, so there is of course a higher chance.
NatureMamaOR, I will be taking a trip to the book store this week - I will put Mothering Multiples on my list! Thanks!
Thanks again everyone!!
