    You could also go large suv... maybe a Toyota Sequioa (they also have 5 top tethers).

    Do you plan on having any kids after these 2? If so I'd get a 12 pass.

    What do you plan on doing with strollers? Do you have a dog? Tow things?
    Thanks for the advice! This is the end of kids for us, and definitely NO dog. We don't need to tow at this point, and if we ever did it might be just a small trailer to go on vacation--no boat or anything like that.

    We have a City Select with 2 seats and glider board. It folds up super small in pieces. I don't think I'll be getting a quad stroller.

    DH wonders if the Caravan will work now, with 2 RFing on the outer sides, and 1 FF in the middle. I am asking parents/in-laws for Radians for Christmas, LOL!

    Congratulations! LMBA is really helpful. We were members when the kids were younger. I also like Twinstuff if you have a second to go online ever again. Good luck!

    Were you thinking radians for the babies or for your other children? 2 radians at newborn recline would be pretty iffy in 3rd row. Also, while the radians do fit regular sized newborns well -- you may be looking at preemies which would be 4-5lbs coming home. Just something to think about.

    The rear row of the caravan is like 49“ so pretty tight. 3 across is possible though (with the right seats). I've put a FFing MyRide + 2 TBs back there. Haven't tried 3 across RFing as most my RFing seats are beasts (eg like 22“ wide).

    Could you initially do infant seats (4lbers) in the captains? With your 4 year old in the middle FFing in say a myride (or britax, but not the advocate -- just up on a base), with 2 radians RFing with angle adjustors for your other kids?

    Once your newborns have good head control move them to the rear outboard radians, your child that's 6mo old keep in the rear row as well. And then “something“ for the older 2 in the captains.

    I would recommend talking to family about the support you will need.

    As you know, the first three months is very demanding and even more so with twins. I know there are some nights that I did not sleep more than 30 minutes at a time, it was pure exhaustion.

    Research your OB to see who you want to be referred to. Bedrest may happen, be prepared for that possibility. I was convinced I would not end up on bedrest, that many women with twins work right up until they deliver. I was really shocked when I got put on bedrest at 28 weeks by the OB. The twins fluid was low and my cervix was thinning.

    You will have more ultrasounds to monitor their growth and positioning.

    It will be an amazing experience, I wish I had known about londonmoms before I was pregnant

    Twins rock. We'll see you out at some of the LMBA social events - they have a moms night out coming very soon where they are supplementing manis/pedis if you want to do something relaxing.
