How far along were you when you found out you were expecting twins6 weeks

Any issues during your pregnancy?  Nothing major

Memorable/funny moment when you were pregnant: The most memorable moment was finding out I was pregnant! I had prayed about it for so long that I was so thankful for it to actually be happening!

Looking back, what is one thing you would tell your pregnant self?  I guess to get as much rest as possible! I remember thinking I was tired and not getting enough sleep...but just wait till they arrive!

How many weeks/days were you when your twins were born? 38 weeks, 3 days

Did you have a c-section or natural delivery?  I chose to have a scheduled c-section (which ended up being a good plan because both were breech the day of delivery)

Any NICU time?  If yes, for what reason and how long?  No! Healthy babies!!

Did you have any complications after delivery? No

How long did you (the parents) stay in the hospital? 5 days

Did your twins stay with you or in the hospital nursery at night? With me (tried to send them out once a night for a couple uninterrupted hours of sleep once a night).

What are three things you are so glad you had (or wish you would have had) at the hospital? 

Boppy, my husband

Describe one of your favorite moments while you were at the hospital:  My favorite moment was the first time I was breastfeeding both my babies at the same time! I had waited for this moment for a long time! It was amazing to be able to finally hold them and know I was providing nourishment for them!

If you had one piece of advice you could give an expecting mom of twins, what would it be?  For me, it was getting on a schedule! I was (am) very strict about our daily schedules. It just helped our day flow smoothly (somewhat) and helped the babies get in a routine of when to feed, sleep, play, etc.
