My good friend J (maid of honor at both of my weddings) told me last night that she's pregnant . . . with twin boys! I'm just so excited for her! She lives in New York City, and I just hate that we're so far apart.

In college, we lived in the same apartment complex for part of the time. Our significant others were both in law school at the same time, so we would watch The Real World (New York & LA) and ER together and gripe about what law school does to these poor souls. Thankfully, her relationship was strong enough to last.

She's incredibly smart, savvy, and stylish and spent the last 10 years successfully navigating the cut-throat business of advertising and media. When we moved back to Iowa, I felt like I lived vicariously through her.

When I was 7 months pregnant, I flew to NY to visit and she showed me a great time. When I had DD, she flew in to see us.

She's a good, old soul and I know that she'll make a wonderful mother - - congrats darlin!

My grandmother had twin boys. She said the next 3 kids seemed like a piece of cake after that! Congrats to your friend!

Woot! I'm that friend from college!

The best advice I can give your friend is to keep them on the same sleeping and feeding schedule, even if it means gently waking one up. Keep them together in the same crib for the first few months, and don't go running when you hear one wake up for fear that he will awaken the other. He'll sleep right through it.
