Congratulations on your pregnancy, PurpleMonkey! I stopped working at 25 weeks (I'm 29 weeks now). I don't know if you picked up this book during your Borders shopping spree, but I'd suggest prioritizing and first reading "When you're expecting twins, triplets, or quads" by Dr. Barbara Luke. It gives a bunch of information that other books don't touch on, including lots of good nutrition information, which is important so that you can build the babies' weight up earlier in case they're born early. You mentioned your work being in the dark about twin pregnancies- twin pregnancies are usually induced at 38 weeks to avoid complications from placenta(s) breaking down, etc., so it really is unrealistic for your work to expect you to go until your due date. Of course, there are plenty of other reasons why it probably wouldn't be in your best interest to go that long, as pp mentioned. Anyway- best wishes for a healthy pregnancy to you!
