So you just found out you're having twins? It is fabulous yet terrifying, you feel invigorated yet immobilised. In my very recent experience these are but a few of the thoughts you might expect to have as you process this life changing realisation.

You just got the news that the blood test is positive. We're pregnant, well actually your wife is pregnant, you are really just a guilty looking bystander at this stage. Either way you are absolutely ecstatic, on cloud nine so to speak, what could be better.

But wait, that hormone test is at the 99th percentile. Either this is baby is superman, or you've got two. Yes, there it is another little baby hiding in the back. Two babies. One was fantastic but two is more than twice as good. We're talking an instant family here.

But then it hits you, you've got two. Thats one each at least. That means two cots, two baby seats and twice as many cloths and everything else a normal child needs. Wow I think I'll just spin out for a while.

Oh I forgot something .... twice as many nappies. At two nappies a day (wait is that the wife yelling more like 7 nappies a day), okay I mean 7 nappies a day, 7 days a week, doubled, thats 100 nappies a week. Thats a lot of cloths or a lot of disposables. Either way thats a whole lot of WASTE. I'm wasted already.

Time to get practical. We're going to need a bigger house. This one just won't cut it, neither will the drafty doors or the dirty carpet. We are going to need to pack up and go somewhere that two kids can play in without banging heads. Time to get out the property press.

The wife has me on a chain gang now. She's doing all the buying and I';m left doing all the painting and decorating. Where on earth can I put that mobile and why did you only buy one of them. You don't expect them to share do you. And one more question, do kids really like Winnie the Poh, I hope so cos it's all over their wall.

Heck we better start saving and saving now. These kids you know, they aren't cheap. Power, clothes, toys, and all those trips to the doctor. Theres going to be a drain on more than the national power grid.

You're going to need to some books. "What to expect week by week" is a good one. It takes you through the growth of the twins week by week, keeping you updated with development and growth. This may not be the development of a civilisation, but my familiies development is far more important.

Well you experienced the joy, the shock and the realisation that your life will never be the same. Two babies are on their way and although there is plenty to do you still have wait. Wait for the to grow, wait for them to be ready, and wait to see them for the very first time.

I can't wait!

The biggest adjustment my wife and I have had to make is around sleep. Getting up with one baby during the night can be exhausting - but with two? And if they're off schedule? shake

Enjoy your sleep now.
