Schedule, schedule, schedule! I know people say that you should let babies determine their own schedule, but I don't know what I would do now if I wasn't so strict when they were born. My day is extremely predictable and that is how I'm able to get so much done.
If she still had a little while before the big day, I would say rest as much as possible b/c you won't get any rest once your twins arrive!
If she was delivering right away I would say try not to get too overwhelmed b/c I know the first few weeks are quite overwhelming...at least they were for me. Ask for help and accept help when it is offered!
Oh, here's another word of advice . . . LET THE BABIES SLEEP IN THE NURSERY!!! You will NEED those extra hours of sleep that you will get in the hospital . . . believe me!! Especially if your DH works!! Mine did and he NEVER got up in the night with the kids . . . plus, I had two older ones that were in school . . . so I got up in the night to feed the twins, then got up to get him off to work, then got up again to get the older ones off to school . . . by that time, the twins were up AGAIN!!!

OOOoo I totally agree
of course, if a c-section is imminent, there is no use for this statement . . . but in case it's not, ASK FOR AN EPIDURAL!!! You have the next 18 years to be brave! Get the drugs! lol![/b]
Well if it was my best friend she would of already seen me with my twins and learned all my secrets. So if she had just called me and said Im on my way to the hospital I would say " Omg Im out the door meet you there!"
As for advice I think the best advice for a new mom of multiples is " its doable.. don't over stress. You will get through because well basically .. you have to lol! Your thier mom Take things as they are and don't try to do too much.. the house and the minor things will still be there but your babes grow so quick, cherish the first moments"
