Because there is so much information out there for parents of twins, I want to point you in the right direction to find great articles to help you in your twin journey.
Here are several twin parenting blogs that you should read. Yes, they are written by moms but they tend to focus more on the practical nature of raising twins which we as dads worry about the most.
Natalie Diaz started twiniversity.com because she saw a gap in quality information for parents of twins and multiples. Her site now offers a plethora of articles into the real world aspects of the twin pregnancy and raising twins. The site also occasionally has posts from dads sharing their perspective as well.
Look for articles that talk about how your wife is feeling and what is going through her mind at different stages of the pregnancy. This will help you know how to handle the situation even if you can’t get that straight from your spouse.

The team at hdydi.com help answer that question you’ve likely received as a parent of twins, “how do you do it?” Articles here give a peak into the day to day realities of having and raising twins.
