Twin Pregnancy Week by Week

34 weeks. Walks at lunch break getting slower.

Rachel at 34 weeks

Pregnant with twins? Congrats! Twins are an amazing, life-changing gift. They also come with about a million questions. I don’t consider my experience to be the ultimate Q and A guide, but I did try to blog week by week during the pregnancy. Hopefully the posts will be an encouragement/source of laughter for you. If you have a specific question and can’t find the answer, feel free to shoot me an email. I’d love to connect!

PS – there’s a really great site called Twin Talk that has a lot of information on everything twin. You can read my birth story here, and check out all of the other great resources they have to offer.
