    I had turned 25 2 weeks prior to the birth of my twins And I had my third and last at age 29.

    If anyone says you are young, tell them that no- are are at optimal age to be gestating TWO babies. Your body will handle it perfectly well (better than a teenager, and better than someone in their thirties or forties), and that for a high risk pregnancy you are at an excellent time in your life to be handling it.

    Honestly- don't let anyone rain on your parade. It is very exciting news, and not every woman gets to hear that she is growing more than one baby, or tell other people and see their reactions. The reactions of others (the positive ones!) are the best part

    As a mum of 3 kids who had her first at 28yrs old..if i could live my life over i would have kids in my early 20's as the older you get the harder it is to cope physically and emotionally etc... congratulations on your twins - i am new to this whole forum i have no idea who you are but i am personally so excited for you... twins has always been a secret desire of mine but we are all given what we can deal with... even with one baby some of us have trouble and are challenged by everyday hiccups i am sure you will do just fine and love them both equally and they will feel the love and just thrive!

    I had twins at 25, it was a fabulous age to start our family and couldn't have given a stuff what anyone said you go girl!! Also when ppl asked if they were IVF twins we told them - actually no they are SEX twins... Usually shuts ppl up if you give them really blunt answers haha

    This pregnancy ive been asked if we 'meant to' have another child....... Uhhhhhhh a.) None of your business b.) None of your business

    First of all in would like to say a big massive congratulations to you and your dp. It is a massive blessing you both have and to be given that blessing with a fertility issue and without assistance is truly amazing.

    Just ignore all the negative remarks. I think you are a perfect age to be starting a family and all the negative nancys can take a long walk off a short jetty

    Congratulations! What fabulous news for you and your partner.

    As for the negative nancies, how rude!!
    When they ask 'was it planned' how bout 'totally, we were hoping for quads, and we had plenty of practice s3x'!

    People can be so rude!

    Congratulations!!!!

    That's wonderful news and wishing you a smooth sailing pregnancy. Easier said then done but ignore those nasty comments.

    I had alot of negativity and was 21 when I fell pregnant. I had lots of negative comments because I was "too young" and "single" to have kids. Believe it or not I also got attitude from the midwives. I overheard a midwife tell another I was young and silly pretending to be in labor for attention..... my waters had broken by then so pretty sure it was happening 😞but what would I know.

    Pm me if you want to chat

    Wow I can't believe 26 is considered young. I'm 25 and pregnant with number 2!

    Just ignore negative people, they aren't worthy of being in your life. My life has become much easier since I stopped worrying about negative people. I may vent to DH about what an idiot they are but that's the extent of my caring.

    Congrats on twins!

    Yes, I've had many negative comments in my time. I had one person say "Oh you poor thing, better you than me". And also, you will now, pretty much for the rest or your life probably get comments of the "are they IVF?" Like as if your reproductive workings are anyone else's business! Welcome to the world of twins. Congratulations by the way! I always respond "No, they are S.E.X"!

    I'm really getting quite frustrated with how negative some people are with our news. I've had several people comment that I'm 'quite young' (I'll be 26 by the time the babies are born), people asking if they were planned and a work colleague even claimed that she could not find anything positive to say to me.
    Have you had reactions like this? How did you respond?
