Welcome to Expecting Twins!
out I was expecting twins was the biggest shock of my life. When
the doctor doing the ultrasound said the words, "I see two heads...," my
stomach did a couple of flips and I felt like all the oxygen was
suddenly zapped from my body. A wide range of emotions ran through me
from shock, to excitement, to extreme nervousness and despair.
Would I be able to handle caring for two babies? Would I even be
able to carry two babies to term? I had a lot of questions and
I spent my pregnancy preparing for my double bundle of joy. I
read twin books, scoured the web for twin information, and gained
support by posting on twin message boards. By the time my
boys arrived, I could have had a doctor's degree in 'twinology.'
Did that mean my transition from childless woman to mother of two
newborns was an easy one? Certainly not. But all the
information I gained gave me strength to make it through the hard
times. And while there were many hard times, there were also many
blessings, as I watched my two beautiful babies grow. Now as I
look at my boys, I can't imagine not having two at once. It
just wouldn't be as wonderful!
I hope you will find this site helpful in getting through your twin
pregnancy and preparing for the joys and challenges to come.
