I am being induced with my identical twin girls in less than two weeks am quite scared. Pregnancy was planned but still haven't got over the shock of two babies.
I have four other children youngest is only 18 months and he is quite full on.
I don't know anyone with twins near where I live ( Liverpool) does anyone know of any twin clubs or ways to get in contact with other mums.
Please tell me it will all be fine and I will cope as I feel quite tearful and anxious.

Best of luck! Mine were born at 33wks2days, with a 3 week stay in special care. They were weeny though, so it's no indication that yours will need that long.

Thanks, the twins Anastasi a and Hop e were born yesterday around 9.30pm. One twin is in intensive care as she needs a line to remove some of her blood due to undiagnosed twin to twin transfusion syndrome and help with breathing. Other twin is in high dependancy but had to have a blood transfusion as she had severe anaemia. They are both doing well though. Thanks for supportive messages.

Congratulations, and well done. Hope your little babies are well enough to go home with you soon, and that you are having thr opportunity to rest x

Not bad weights at all. Hope they settle quickly for you and special care train them before sending them home, like they did with my three.

Congratulations, what lovely names and good weights too for 34 weeks.

It will be hard but at the same time for me it is the most fantastic thing I have ever done. Don't worry if you don't have much help or routine (I have neither, other than approx 3 hour feeds) as it is still doable without these things!
