I'm willing to do one u/s per pregnancy (unless there's trouble) and my 20-week u/s revealed twins.  My OB couldn't get two heartbeats, didn't palpate them, and I was in complete denial (my little...

I just happened to see this- I drive a Dodge Grand Caravan. My little ones are nearing 5 & 3 and then 7 mo twins. It's heaven sent in the fact that the doors open automatically (and close...

Maybe a different type of cover would help. One that sort of folds in on his backside and gets a better gusset grip on the thighs. We've always used fitteds and covers for the itty bitties (Bummis...

I didn't find out about my twins until the 20 week u/s and I'm sort of glad. It made for far fewer weeks of worry. It seemed that worry set in immediately upon hearing the news. Mine are identical...

Just popping in (saw this on my Windows 7). I've always done this too! It was comforting to me as the days went on. And, when I had my twins, it was even more comforting to me since the chances of...

I've called the police on more than one occasion for children not in as they should be. But, that could be the CPS worker in me (pre-kid life). I once saw a woman in the McD's drive thru with a baby...

I swear that's when I felt it with all of mine...just about 10 weeks. With the twins it was just on both sides (though at the time I was still in denial).

I'm glad you asked this. I've never considered myself a vain person, ever. But I can say that looking pregnant when your twins aren't itty bitty is tough. I hate being asked when I'm due! My boys...
