    I just found out that I'm having twins. Thought I'd post here and open it up to any advice, pointers, and stories. I'm really excited but scared to death at the same time!!!

    Congratulations again! I'm so thrilled for you. It's lovely to see another ICSI twins Mum on the way. :hugs:

    It's really not as hard as people lead you to believe. Yeah there are tough days and its quite a bit of work but don't let people make you feel like you can't handle it.

    I'd definitely see if you can get in touch with other twin Mums when the babies are born. My HV was good at putting me in touch with other Mums. Also see if you can find a multiples mums and tots group. Try TAMBA for that (Twins and multiple birth association). Sometimes only other twin Mums understand things the same way you do and its great to be somewhere where you don't feel like quite so much of a freak show.

    Be prepared to be stopped by old ladies and other total strangers everywhere you go. Read the thread in here about annoying things people say.... oh boy! :rofl:

    Sure am. Exhausted. Peeing like crazy. And I have morning sickness that gets progressively worse as the day goes on. No vomiting, just extreme nausea. And NO food sounds or tastes good. How about you?

    LOL! Oh the smell thing. I had that last time and I have it again. I have to keep reminding myself its me and not what I smell.

    Poor DH, it's like something has died in his mouth and (bad mother) Charlotte smells bad too sometimes :blush:

    I found some smells set off my sickness, but it has passed now, but I found taking a really deep sniff of deep heat really reduced my queasiness. Bit bizarre but it worked. I also loved sniffing wood preserve, my OH had to drag me away from the fence panels in the garden at one point I had been there so long. God knows what the neighbours thought!

    Congrats. I'm exhausted too. Have been throughout! Congrats again! Join us on the twin bumps section. We share our bump pics. That seems to be where we've all congregated to chit chat and ask questions.
