When I became pregnant with triplets, I immediately wanted to find out everything I could about my high-risk pregnancy and about life with triplets. I began reading several highly recommended pregnancy books, but they weren't exactly relevant to my triplet pregnancy. Not only did much of it not apply to me as an expectant mother of "supertwins," but some of the advice and instructions could actually have been harmful to my unique pregnancy. I spent a lot of time doing research online and talking to other triplet moms. I had so many questions and curiosities that I needed answers for. Expecting Multiples is just what an expectant mother of higher-order multiples needs. In the first few pages, readers are presented with key, basic facts about multiples that every expectant mother of supertwins wants to know. Chapter 2 (Proactive Pregnancies) and Chapter 3 (Prenatal Care) offer a large amount of valuable information that can be crucial to the success of a higher-order multiples pregnancy. Expecting Multiples is a very well written, tell-it-like-it-is guide that will equip readers with the tools needed to create the best possible outcome. The book provides: . Facts - "On average, the gestational week reached is 32 weeks for triplet pregnancies." . Goals - "The goal for mothers expecting triplets or more is to consume one gallon [of water] every day..." . Advice - "You want the best doctor with the most experience and best outcomes." . Support - "The loss of one or more babies while continuing a pregnancy can be a very emotional experience. There is no right or wrong way to incorporate this into your lives." . Encouragement - "Many mothers find it hard to leave their babies [in the NICU]. Take some time to rest and recover. You did a great job!" MOST is "in the know" when it comes to multiple and their new book is a must-have for expecting mothers of triplets or more.
