BigZ i think you will be fine. It sounds like its rather a decent size for 1.5 bdr. Could you sell DS's double bed and put a single in there so he has room to play etc and have his own space when the bubs come along?
You can actually take a load bearing wall out but it will need to have a beam there to replace it (either in the ceiling space so you cant see it or as a bulk head).
Congratulations on the twins!
Me, DH & DS and one about to arrive. Our house is 4 bedrooms, lounge room, family room & dining room, bathroom, toilet & full ensuite on a 1200m2 block. It's big enough but not too big. DS is insanely spoiled with stuff from the grandparents. We have a spare queen bed & computer in the spare room. We're considering putting the kids in the same room (Newbie will be in our room for the first 12 months) and having the other bedroom as a playroom. DS has some bigger toys in the family room but I hate toys around the house & would rather contain them.
We recently upsized to this house from a much smaller place.
2 adults and ds1 2.5yr and ds2 9 month... We have a 2.5 bedroom house. Waaaay too small, but like a pp said, you make it work.
What ticks me off the most is that the house is on piers so it is always freezing!! One day I will have a nice new house, with lots of space and central heating!
Me, DH, 14 month old DS and one due in Jan. We have 4 bedrooms, ensuite, separate bathroom & toilet, study, open ish kitchen, lounge/playroom, rumpus & dining.

We have a 3bed townhouse for the 4 of us. Dd1 has her own room and dd2 shares with DH and myself. The 3rd bedroom is for guests. I like it but DH wants to move in the next year. But id rather be squishy (less housework) and have no money stress than move and worry about loan repayments. Plus I love having my babies sleeping near me.
My aunt was in a similar situation. She had a 2bed and was expecting twins. She made one a sleeping room (2 double mattresses on the floor) and the other room was for clothing/storage etc. It was easier for her to bf the babies on one (one on each side) and my uncle had the toddler next to him on another.
I grew up overseas in a one bedroom apt with my mum, dad and brother. So sharing spaces is normal for our family.
I own a 3 bedder townhouse,1 bathroom with extra loo downstairs, garage as a playroom (which was converted) kids have their own rooms
I go upstairs to shower and change basically.We are in a cul de sac complex with a zillion other kids so we are always outside.Even cleaning my tiny house gets too much sometimes!LOL
We have a 3 bedroom house, 2 bathrooms, one living, one living/dining. 500 square metre block. DH and I, and a 5 and 3 year old.
We live in a 4 bed, 2 bathroom, lounge, dining, kitchen and family room. We have a massive undercover outdoor entertaining area which we are in the process on doing up to create an indoor/outdoor feel. We are on a 750sq block. There is DH, me, 3 kids and a dog.
We live in a detached 2 bedroom villa with an ensuite and small study that comes off the kitchen/dining area. it's a small house but the bedrooms are huge. The lounge is tiny unfortunately. Our dd (2.5) has her own room and 10 wk old DS now occupies the study. We can't afford a bigger house either so are having to make do. I make room by rotating toys and storing in the garage. I feel like every square inch of this house is used up. So so anxious to get into a larger house!
