Hi @Amberfran, you sound pretty together which is a great start. I’m pregnant with twins too. It’s my first pregnancy so I won’t be providing much advice but here if you want to chat. I’m not a single mum but I was raised by one and she did an awesome job, way better than if she’d let my useless father stick around. So I’m a big cheerleader of team single mum.

Huge congratulations, you are a very lucky lady!
I have six month old twins and they are the best thing that's ever happened to us.
If your mum is willing to help then great. Don't get me wrong, it's busy but there is so much that is wonderful about having two babies together that makes the tired days ok! Take all help offered and get into a good routine as soon as poss. I stayed in hospital a week to get the support from there.

@ClareB83 thank you! That's amazing. I should hopefully be able to manage I'm sure I will as I already love these two babies for the life of me. It's crazy! And @ellesbellesxxx thank you. I have a lot of supportive family who are willing to help too I'm just such a worrier!! Thank you and brill to you x
