Congrats on your twins! :). You will prob be monitored a little closer by your doctor.  I have never been pregnant with a singleton, but my pregnancy was pretty text book.  I had no swelling or edema, gained 29lbs, no real issues.  I carried till 36wks and 2 days.  
Make sure you drink tons if water, and listen to your body.  If it says rest, rest.
How far along are you??

That's great!!!  Oh yes, your tummy needs to make lots of room for those little ones :). Are you going to find out what you are having?  We didn't.  It was fun not knowing :)

We drove all of our family and friends crazy because we wouldn't find out.  It didn't bother us though.  It was the greatest suprise ever when they were announcing what we were having in the operating room.  :). I had to tell my doc everytime we had an u/s "remember, we don't want to know!", just so he wouldn't slip and tell us...lol.  

I am so excited for you!!!

Oh, and if you can....please pease please....line up help for when you bring your bundles of joys home.  You will need it!!!

Congratulations! Mine are now 2 1/2 (they turn 3 in December) and enjoy every moment, pregnancy included! Listen to your doctor, rest lots (if you're able to) and I hope you have a smooth time through delivery. :) And definitely accept help when they come home! It will take some time to get a routine (which was my life saver!), but savor them as infants. Time flies!

Congrats!! Did they tell you whether they were mono/di, di/ di, or mono/mono? You will get more monitoring with any multiples but monochorionic twins will cause them to monitor more closely for twin to twin transfusion syndrome ( ttts). My mono/do girls are 7 weeks old now. I had a great pregnancy other than some bad swelling and pain at the end. I delivered at 36 weeks, it was difficult because I was induced but wouldn't dialate past 3, so after 21 hours I had a csection.
Twins are the greatest!! Lots of work but I love every minute of it and you will too! Rest and enjoy your pregnancy!
