Our first baby was a surprise, our second came along after one try, but when I got pregnant with the twins we had been trying for 7 months because we were "trying" for a girl. But instead of getting a girl we got twins.....and boys!
I went to my first Dr.'s appointment and I was measuring big so we thought maybe I was a month further than what I initially thought. Long story short we went in for an ultrasound to determine my due date and got the shock of our life......TWO!! I remember just feeling complete and utter shock. And then I cried. But honestly, once I got over the shock and realized it really wasn't that unique I learned to just enjoy each moment.....well most of them anyway....okay,........ some. And I can honest to goodness say that I love it. But......finding cute clothes for them is sometimes hard. Before I had them I looked around a little but didn't find much. Since then I've found a fantastic site called Twinz Gear!
I wish I had known about them earlier but I also can't wait to find someone having twins so I can shop for them there. They have products for twins, singletons, parents, grandparents, siblings, you name it, I bet they've got it! And I love that it was a family who was also surprised to get twins that started it. Here's a bit of their story:
After being surprised half way through our pregnancy that we were going to have twins, my husband and I immediately panicked. We didn't know were to turn or what to do. But as we shared our exciting news with friends and family, our good news began to spread. Quickly, we discovered we were now becoming part of a wonderful network. The network of families with twins. The outpouring of support and encouragement we received from other twins families was just wonderful and that's what we want to create here for other twins families. In addition, my husband and I had enjoyed a very active lifestyle with our first child. We skied in the winter and boated in the summer and quickly found that those activities were very difficult once our twins came along. Our goal here is to help other twins families find the gear they need to get back to an active lifestyle as quickly as possible.
You can see why I have been so impressed with their company. They are so generous that they sent me those adorable TW-IN t-shirts my boys are wearing and they also sent me a Diaper Waistpack to give away. Awesome, I know!! Here's a little more about what you can win:
