Finding out that I was pregnant was one of the happiest days of my entire life. Finding out that I was, in fact, pregnant with twins multiplied that feeling. Not just by two, but by a million! Yes it was scary, daunting and a total shock but how unbelievably special!
If you are reading this whilst pregnant with twins (first, congratulations) I am sorry if anything I proceed to say scares you more than you probably already have been!
Raising, and coping with, twins is without doubt the hardest thing I have ever done. I have nearly 17 years experience of working with and looking after young children (running a church crèche, babysitting, childminding and being a paediatric nurse) and having my multiples has pushed me to my limit. BUT it is also the most rewarding, amazing, hilarious, brilliant, lovely and fabulous thing I have ever done and it does get easier!
