Hey ladies,
this is my first successful pregnancy and I'm having twins. I'm 8 weeks tomorrow and have my second appointment on Tues. Last one we got to see the heartbeats (at 6 weeks) and they are separate sacks, probably fraternal twins.
due date oct 14th.

as I'm a first time mom, I don't know much about having bebes at all and less about having twins! But I guess I'm pretty excited! Just nervous and hopeful to have healthy babies.

Congratulations! I'm a new twin mommy so I don't have a lot of advice. My LOs will be 3 weeks old tomorrow. We also have 5 other kids so I do know plenty about mommy stuff. It's very different with twins, though. Kind of just learning as I go along.

Hi and welcome I remember well the shock of finding out it was twins. It will be a wild ride I am sure, but a good one. I have 9 month old b/g twins, and I can honestly say I love it! I could wish for a little more time to relax now and then, but it is fun. The ladies on here gave me lots of good advice, so I hope I will be able to help do the same for you

Congrats and welcome. I was a first time mom with twins too. It'll work out great since you won't know what it's like to have one baby. I'm sure you'll do great.

Hello and welcome!

I love first time moms, singles or multiples either one. I just have a heart for mom-newbies. LOL

I'd encourage you to read, read, read! The "What to Expect" series of books as well as Dr. Sears' "Baby Book" are good general pregnancy resources, and I really enjoyed twinstuff.com as a source of info that's different for us multi-moms.

Come ask any questions or share concerns as you go! We love helping and encouraging newbies! Congrats again!
