Skip to comments.Daughter is Expecting Twins, Any Advice (Beeber Stunes Welcome)
Posted on 03/02/2011 8:55:31 PM PST by occamrzr06
My daughter is expecting twins. She has 28 day until she is 37 weeks. 42 weeks is full term. The DR wants her to go at least 37 weeks to allow for maximum development.
My questions is, what can we expect? Obviously, I/we've done the child raising thing, but not twins.
Any insight would be welcome.
“...Daughter is Expecting Twins...what can we expect?...
If she makes it thru the 1st 2-3 years, it gets a little better. You’ll have much joy............ for the rest, you have my condolences.
Any insight would be welcome.
twins means there’s gonna be two of them. Glad I could help.
Thanks. I’m not real bright, but I did figure that one. Thanks for the insight, you never can tell with some folk.
Advice: Buy two of everything
I am a twin, born 1944, Dad didn’t know until it happened when he was in the waiting room!
Be Happy, and pray for healthy children!
(Congrats from the proud gramma of 9 month-old boy-girl twins.)
Identical or fraternal?
Stay calm even when both of them are crying.
Keep in mind,they will grow out of that stage..
I am a twin. Let the twins be as close as they choose to be. My twin and I even had a secret language. Yes we grew out of it...
Don’t make em dress the same after about age 6...LOL
They are not the same personality even if they are identical twins.
Hire a trusted babysitter, and have time for Mom, grandma and all caretakers, separately and together.
Do mark their clothes and toys with their initial, when 2 and older, it will save many, many arguments.
Take time to relish in the awesome wonder of it. And thank God.
Double the work ... double the fun! I had boy and girl twins ... you just do everything twice! Enjoy. Mine are 40 years old now ... I made it!
Buy two of everything
I am sure she will be fine. Enjoy the double fun! Who needs sleep anyway?
Your family has been twice blessed !!!!!
congrats and congrats
Sweet irony, eh what?
Blessings on all!
Congrats! My daughter did not have twins but she found a ton of good/barely used/name brand baby clothes on Craigslist for a fraction of original cost. Same deal with car seats and other baby gear.
Well, since there are one of each, fraternal.
LOL, stay calm, serious? I’ve got a wife, a daughter, a 2 year old grand-daughter, twins on the way and 5 dogs.
The only benefit is I have 2 acres.
Thanks for the insight.
Sorry about your son Douglas-Jim from C-Town (((((Hugs)))))
We already scored a twin stroller, with the car seats that snap in to it on craigslist. I have sold so much stuff on craigslist the last month, damn, I think I sold one of the kids....
