My husband and I got the shock of our lives at our first ultrasound at 20 weeks. “Did you know there were two babies in there?” the technician said. With no fertility treatments or history of twins in my family, suddenly I went from pregnant with my first baby to pregnant with my first two babies!
After struggling with the shock for the first week or two, I started to read and research twins. While I’m finding plenty of practical information about twin pregnancy issues, how to choose a twin stroller or how to breastfeed two babies at once, I’m interested in the bigger picture issues. How did having twins or multiples change your life? What are some of the biggest challenges unique to raising multiples? What have you discovered is special about having twins? — RC
