It is a shock to anyone to find that they are expecting twins, even if they know that twins are in the family. Everything suddenly has to be doubled, including of course, the mum-to-be’s bump.
You will probably have to take more rest during pregnancy because of the greater demands on your body, and the planning and preparation for the new arrivals is a bit more complicated, as you need to plan for two instead of one.
Luckily, if you can get friends and relatives to help out, you can find new baby gifts that are designed for twins, so that they and you can enjoy choosing just as you could for one baby. Toys, outfits, blankets and teddies can all be given in twos, just ready for the new babies, and often you will receive these gifts in a basket that you can then use to store the babies’ things in.
Having twins means double the excitement of planning and preparing for the new babies as you look for nursery items that are designed for your needs, and two lots of nappies and baby clothes and toys.
If you are expecting twins, then you have an excuse to ask for help from your friends and relatives, and they can have the pleasure of finding pretty and practical new twins gift sets to help you out.
