If you’re expecting twins, you’re certain to have a lot of questions and probably some worries, too. But, in the same time, come as a shock, there are lots of reasons to be excited about.

Just think about it, many women fear the moment, but you are only going to have to go through the birth process once to end up with two children.

You’ll have more options for baby names, and as time goes by, you’ll be able to watch them carve out their own identities as they grow.

They will never be lonely, as they’ll have each other, they’ll share one of life’s most unbreakable bonds and, the most important, there will be only one cake to bake at their birthday.

Before you turn over excited about your twins, you should check if that’s really going to happen. The ultrasound confirmation is necessary, we all know – seeing is believing. If your physician detects more than a heartbeat, this indicates a multiple pregnancy.

Using harmless sound waves, a Doppler system amplifies fetal heart sounds, usually distinguishable late in the first trimester. When you know for sure what or how many babies you’re expecting, is time to prepare for a multiple pregnancy.

This means increasing your nutritional intake, even more than you would with a single pregnancy (mostly proteins).

You need to take this very seriously and get advice about your diet and living habits. As your pregnancy evolves, extra care is needed, as well as proper rest, and you will probably see your practitioner more frequently towards the end of your pregnancy.
