Been gone awhile...back with some news

Hi all! I took a break from PT for a few months but have recently started checking back in. I missed reading and keeping up with the lounge happenings!

Some of you may remember me from last year. I posted about some miscarriages I was going through. So many of you were there for me with support, private messages, advice, and comfort, which I am forever grateful.

Well, I'm back to share that DH and I didn't give up. In fact, I'm due in 16 days with TWINS (conceived naturally). We are expecting a boy and a girl and are very excited! Our 6 year old is excited to be a big brother too! I wanted to let you know and maybe give some hope to others who may be going through the same thing.

Hope you all are ready for some baby posts. I'll need lots of advice!

I'm so happy for the upcoming birth of your twins!!!!! And so glad you're back on PT! I wish I had some advice. I was a twin and have only been told stories. Your 6 year old will be a big help in fetching diapers, bottles, etc. My twin and I were the oldest of five other siblings. Just make sure you make some little playdates or special time outside of the home with your 6 year old (even for a 30 minute trip to the playground or to get an ice cream).

Congratulations! Double blessings!

Some funny advice:

Be sure to take some pictures of the babies separately!

I'm half of a pair of boy-girl twins. My mom took lots of pictures of us together but forgot to take pictures of us individually. I have no baby pictures of just me by myself! (I think my first "alone" picture was my kindergarten school pic!)

I'm a twin- remember they are 2 individuals. At 40 my mom sometimes still forgets that!

It's always good to hear great news from PTers. You have a built in helper when your twins come.
