Perhaps my expectations were too high but I find this book to be overly general and no specific help to a woman pregnant with twins. I learned more reading What to Expect. It's sectioned into trimesters, not even months. So the information is very general. Mothers carrying twins already know most of what this books tells you by reading other content - I wanted more information on how my pregnancy is different from a singleton, what different things I might be feeling, etc. I didn't find that here. The only thing I liked about it is that it encourages you to eat and get calories however you can since you need more than a singleton pregnancy. I liked this since What to Expect made me feel guilty for eating peanut butter or ice cream.

I have finally found a book that deals with twin pregnacy. I am expecting a boy and a girl. I wanted to know the specifics of having teins instead of a single child pregnancy. Great!

This was a wonderful, informative book. I don't know how I would have gotten through being pregnant with twins without it! Gila Leiter deserves a medal for writing this book and I'm sure other women who are having twins will feel the same way - bravo, Gila!
