Congratulations on the twin pregnancy!!!

Twins are definitely a challenge, but I promise that you can do it! I think two close-in-age singletons are surely harder since at least the twins will both be wanting/needing the same things. So, it sounds like you're immensely qualified for the challenge, and I bet you'll do great. With my twins, I felt guilty for putting them in daycare for about 1 day. After that, I could see the value of it for all of our sanity. So whether you rely on a nanny or daycare or whatever form of support is available, don't feel guilty about it!!

In the meantime, enjoy your pregnancy and don't stress out too much. Being a twin mom is a very special thing.

I feel overwhelmed at the thought of twins sometimes, and I don't even have any other kids! So I can understand why you would feel that way. Things have a way of working themselves out, and although it may be tough for a while, I'm sure you'll do great!

I don't really have anything very helpful to add, but just wanted to say

i am there right now also i have three boys 14, 5 and 4. i was working full time about 72 hr a week mostly nights so i have time with the boys (i had to cut back now just couldn't do that after about 18 weeks had to switch to mostly days now and do 72 hrs every other week ) and i get those days where i think am i crazy how am i going to do this im stretched so thin now. going from two to three was so overwhelming i can't imagine how overwhelming adding two more are going to be. and my last two were angels they were such well behaved babies. and then i have days where i just know i will find a way to make it work.
