    I do not have any advice either but I bet you will have your hands full lol
    I am sure you will be entitled to some sort of help through the council, surely? I could be wrong though
    But once the babies come I am sure you will work something out!!

    And congratulations

    Firstly congratulations you will be fine. I am a first time mum to twin girls. I found that hardest thing was learning everything there was to know about babies. You already know all that- I think the main thing is to be super organised.
    Best of luck and hope you have a great pregnancy.

    Congratulations

    As pp said, you will be fine. You just need to be really organised.

    When my twins were born DD1 was 4 and a half years old. Two months later she started school so I had a school run as well.

    I used to keep the proper baby bag packed in the car and just add what I needed to a small shopping bag. So, if I just used a couple of nappies, then I put those in the shopping bag as soon as I could when I got home (so I didn't forget what I needed). That way I didn't need to carry a big baby bag, plus the twins, plus get DD1 down the 3 flights of stairs we had. I used to pack DD1's bag and get DH to take it downstairs for me on his way to work each day.

    I also had 2 prams. One that lived in the car and another for walking.

    Congrats on your twins, it i's a wonderful journey you are about to embark upon

    First, I have to ask - do your 4 & 3.5yr olds run off when you are out, or do they stay by your side? Or do they go into a pram?
    If they walk without bolting, do it like this - take the twins to the car first & strap them in, then do the older 2. Make sure you have a really good twin pram, I have the Love n Care Twingo pram & idolise it, lol.
    When you get to the shops, get the twins out first, then the older 2. If need be, put the backpacks with a lead on them on ur older girls & hook them onto the pram so they can't run off..
    The other way to do it is to either buy a twin sling/pouch to carry both the bubs on your front & put the girls in a pram. You could also carry one bub in a pouch, have the other in a pram with one of the older girls & have the other older one on a buggy board
    Hope this helps you a little. I only had a 10yr old when my twins were born, but they are now 18mths old, I also have a 4mth old & I am now 10wks again, due 20th july '12
    Don't think too much about the logistics of getting around with them all, just get out & do it then it becomes 2nd nature..
    Good Luck, hope everything goes well during your pregnancy
