Spring/Summer 2012 Baby Bumps!

Eeek!!! Twins!!! :) :) :)

Obviously not me having twins but my brother and sister in law! After almost 2 1/2 years of trying and two rounds of IUI they finally got pregnant! And they found out on their ultrasound today that they're having TWINS!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so freaking excited for them! I want to tell everyone I know but she's only about 7 weeks so they're keeping it on the hush hush for now!!!!!! So I'm due August 3rd, my sister is due August 12th, and they're due Decemeber 18th!!! What a fun Christmas this is going to be!!!!!!! :) :) :)

How fantastic!! It so nice to be pregnant at the same time as someone you're close to.

Yay for your brother and SIL, twins are fabulous (even if the first 6 months or so are a complete blur!!). My boys at almost 4 and all the extra hard work in e beginning is starting to pay off now because they have a constant play mate so I get an occasional cup of coffee in peace!!

Congrats to you all xx

Ahhhhh!!!  That's such great news!  I have sisters that are twins and my mom is a twin so I'm totally expecting someone in my family to have them.  Congrats to your brother and sister in law!

I was a member of TAMBA, they have a website with lots of info on it (but it's geared towards England so shops and products might not be available). My sister used this website when I was expecting http://www.raising-twins.com/tips-for-moms.html

A lot of baby books are geared towards single pregnancies but are still helpful for general baby care of course, I did find a couple of useful ones specifically for twins -
https://play.google.com/store/books/details/Susan_M_Heim_It_s_Twins?id=lNiUM7bvr2IC
and http://www.amazon.ca/Double-Duty-Parents-Raising-Pregnancy/dp/0071613447/ref=pd_sim_b_3

Hope that's a little bit of help!! Reassure them that the thought of having 2 is soooo much worse than the reality, as long as they relax and realise they will live in total chaos for a while they'll be fine!! Lol
