I am terrified, having a c-section tomorrow for my twins.
We will finally get to know the sex of the babies.
My other two DCs are SO excited they packed their bags to go and stay at MILs with no fuss because the quicker they get there the quicker I can go have their siblings apparently hmm
But oh my God two babies. It feels like it has only just hit me now that their will be two of them.
I am excited but terrified all at the same time.

Oh, bless you-your head must be all over the place!
How old are your older two children?

wilddogbert Wed 03-Dec-14 17:24:52

They are 12 and 7 so old enough to help out a bit luckily. They are super excited bless them. Especially the 7 year old who has marked the day on his advent calendar and added some presents for the babies on his Christmas list because they weren't here when we sent the letters to santa.

HappySunflower Wed 03-Dec-14 19:50:18

Aww, how exciting!
Hope that all proceeds smoothly smile
Do you have names chosen?

Please keep us posted!

lickingstars Wed 03-Dec-14 20:13:49

Oh wow. How exciting
No practical advice but good luck and keep us posted.
Are they identical twins?

Wow, very exciting smile

My friend had her second child when her first was 11, and said it was so much easier than the first time round, because her 11 year old was so up for helping. Nappy-changing time for example, she'd be at her side, with nappy and wipes on hand, she was really keen to be involved smile

Congratulations! You'll be fine, you've done it twice before. Some of us learn this stuff with two babies at once, that really is terrifying! grin

Good luck thanks

My twin girls are 2.2 now and I remember their birth like it was yesterday. Having two babies is weird and I still find myself looking at mine and thinking "wow, I have two babies!"

curiousgeorgie Wed 03-Dec-14 20:36:52

Are your older DC's boys or girls?

It must be terrifying... But equally... How exciting grin congratulations!!

wilddogbert Wed 03-Dec-14 22:34:37

I have one girl and one boy.
The twins are identical so we will have either two girls or two boys.
We have a short list names but we won't decide properly till we see them.

Thank you all for your kind words, and personal experiences. I am still absolutely terrified but not much I can do about it now smile

My id girls are 6 months now and it still terrifies me grin
So far it hasn't been as bad as i imagined it being. I have 3 older dcs who were excited to see the new arrivals and have been helpful (ish) since. How many wks will they be? I'm impressed you've got all the way through without finding out the sex especially with the number of scans you get.

slightlyinsane Thu 04-Dec-14 14:19:57

Just reread your post. I hope the cs went well, what did you have?

curiousgeorgie Thu 04-Dec-14 14:20:39

Yes! How are you? What did you have? smile

VenusRising Thu 04-Dec-14 14:21:18

Have a wonderful time wild.
So excited for you! Keep us posted ok?

VenusRising Thu 04-Dec-14 14:23:30

No slightly, and curious, you read correctly the first time, Wild is going in tomorrow, thursday, for the birth.

She doesn't know yet if they're boys or girls.

Hope everything goes perfectly for you Wild.

Mrwillywonkasbitch Thu 04-Dec-14 14:25:03

Aww congratulations my id girls are 2.5 enjoy smile

GilbertBlytheWouldGiftIt Thu 04-Dec-14 14:58:13

Hope everything goes well (went well?) for you and the babies. Congratulations on your new additions thanks

This was me pretty much this time last year (induction rather than section)
You will be fine but ask for help, take the help and rest rest rest
GOOD LUCK

Have been thinking of you Wild, hope all is going well and you have two new snuggly babes smile

wilddogbert Sat 06-Dec-14 17:49:36

Hi all
Thank you so much
So I have two VERY cute baby boys. grin

Yes it was hard to not know the sex. But we found out with our older DCs so we tried extra hard not to find out and it was really worth the extra effort.

lickingstars Sat 06-Dec-14 18:06:43

Awh thats so lovely. Enjoy your new babies

How are your older DCs coping with their new siblings?

TheOnlyOliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 07-Dec-14 10:22:41

Aw wonderful news. Yes, do enjoy your new babies.

slightlyinsane Sun 07-Dec-14 10:27:24

Congratulations xx I hope everything went well and you and your lo's are or will be home soon x
Enjoy the madness that is to come.
