This book answers every possible question you can have when expecting multiples. It also gives great guidance on eating properly to bulk up those babies in preparation for a possible early birth. Great resource!

This is a decent books for mom's to be of future multiples. And while I appreciate that the book makes you feel normal for putting on weight I felt there was soooo much discussion around putting on so much weight so early on that it may me feel worse as I wasn't putting on that type of weight. Bottom line always listen to your doctor but I expected more information on what makes being pregnant with multiples different from a singleton - and if there is no difference than just say so.

This book made me feel so prepared for my twins. I kept rereading sections and found answers to all my questions. This is an invaluable resource for anyone carrying multiples!

I was gifted this book by a friend of mine who is also a mother of twins.  I followed the diet to the "T" and delivered girl twins at 39.5 weeks!  The diet played a big role in my pregnancy and really helped with healthy birth weight of my  girls.  Twin A weighed 6 lb 9 oz and Twin B weighed 5 lbs 5 oz.  I never developed any complications during my  pregnancy and neither did the twins.  Again, I was so happy to have had this book as a guide!  It help me stay on  track with my diet and food choices.  I just recommended this book to my niece who is also having twins.

Full of gloom and doom. Geared towards a first time mother. Unrealistic resting goals for women with children already. Loved how they advised me to hire a nurse if I could afford it.
