    Still waiting

    This book was said to be released in August... I am still waiting for it. I come to find out they pushed the date back again! By the time it is released now, it will do me no good.

    Good info, easy format

    Read this book during my twin pregnancy alongside the "What to Expect" book. I appreciated the differences that it pointed out in a twin vs. singleton pregnancy. It was nice to know that "double" symptoms were very normal for a twin pregnancy. I also appreciated the question/answer roundtable format found in each chapter - nice to have access to the thoughts of other couples who had been through the twin experience. I definitely recommend. It was realistic without being overly negative, and so much of what you can read about twin pregnancies can be very scary & negative - not what you need when preggo!

    Good Info!

    This book has given me some good info. It lets you know what to expect in each stage of pregnancy. I think it's missing something though and I can't really put my finger on it. It does let you know that your pregnancy is much different from a singleton one but I think it should put more empahsis on how much more.
