    My wife and I found out a couple of weeks ago we were pregnant. I didn't bother posting because it's the third baby and pretty old hat by now. But, today she finally saw the doctor and discovered we have fraternal twins. Didn't see that coming.

    If it was someone else with twins, I'd think that was pretty neat. But, since it is me, I'm floored. This means I'll have four children. Feeding babies in the middle of the night, times two. Baby stuff times two. Potty training times two. Wife and I playing 4 on 2 all the time. This place is going to be a ****ing madhouse for awhile.

    Not that I'm complaining exactly. I'm pretty excited about it. It seems pretty special to me. But, 4 kids within 5 years. I'm going to be one tired mofo for a long time. Am I up to the challenge? Of course I am. But, what will be left of me when it's done?

    And, I'm going through a paradigm shift. With one more, I hardly thought much about it. I know the drill. But, with two coming at once, I'm rethinking my summer vacation, nursing, bedtime, furniture, transportation, childcare, etc. Which of my existing systems must change to handle two babies at once?

    Due in October, if anyone is wondering. No sex known yet, obviously.

    Pray for me.

    Good luck! At least you have the experience of the two earlier kids guide you.

    Will she stay at home? Daycare x2 sucks. It is what is keeping my wife and I from having a baby.

    Congrats man, give us updates through the board! I want an insiders opinion on twins, the gf won't stop obsessing about how she wants them! She thinks popping out two at one time is worth having to RAISE two at a time!
