Im a mother of twins its fabulous to have two individuals grow at the same stage, its too good to watch them though it is equally difficult to manage. I delivered my twins on Feb 2006 and they are two year old,

a general tip is treat them equally and we need to understand that each one has different ideas and thinking so lets never try to compare

Hi Kin,

I too face this problem with my 1st of twin (will turn 11 months on this 7th). I just blow from my mouth straight from my mouth to his when he does this. This will force him to take a breath. Pls try this and let me know if it worked for you.

hi,

i am 30 weeks pregnant with twins. though everything is normal i am still confused about the due date. can anyone give me an idea as to by which week the babies would arrive? my Doc says anytime after 36 weeks. and also how much weight gain is normal for a twin pregnancy.

Hi

dont worry about the babies being small...as long as they are fully grown..it doesnt matter much if they are small....during ur U/S ususally doc will tell u approx weights of ur babies too...mine did...so i was prepared for what my babies were going to be like...so if he doesnt tell u, ask ur doc.
i went for u/s every 15 days till i completed 7mths and thereafter every 7 days...i delivered at 38 weeks 2 days by c-section since i didnt go into labour till then.

Hi renuka

congrats to the to be mom of twins. Dont worry....just relax..usually 38 weeks is considered full term for twins. but anytime after 33 weeks depending on the position of your twins u may go into labour or doctor may suggest a C-section. Its perfectly fine to deliver anytime after 33 weeks...
as it is twins will be smaller than single babies at birth and usually remain that way till they are about 18 months old.
during a twin pregnancy u would usually gain 1.5 times a single pregnancy.
I had gained 17 kgs during my pregnancy and my babies were 4.75 lbs each at birth.
Wish u all the best for your delivery.

My son(10months) holds his breath when he falls or gets hurt on his head. He turns blue for few seconds scaring us all. then he is able to breath. we checked with Doc he has adviced us to sprinkle some water on his face. When such situation occurs i start shivering and sweating. How to handle such a situation?

RE:New parents with Twins
Some people are waiting for a child to come in their life and some couples get blessed with two. It is all so amusing when we think about it. Twins are actually a lil difficult to handle and manage together.... - Hardika [View Message]
RE:New parents with Twins
I have seen parents having soo much trouble in handling a single child when they are small and i can only imagine how hard it would be to manage twins. But i don't think anyone would be able to help you in this situation.... - Ritu [View Message]
