  • I have three kids in daycare two days a week. It's costs me $200. For a full week it would be $500 for the week. I have worked it out with hubby so I can actually go to work and not be only paying for daycare! It costs less once they are out of diapers though.

    Common gestation is about 34 to 36 weeks for twins. I believe you do need to take in more calories a day, I have a client with triplets who told me this. Also multiple pregananis are considered high risk so keep your stress level down, and relax! :)

  • Well agan when you had the ultrasound, you should have contacted your doc, only he/she can tell you if you need more pre-natals etc.! Too much iron can be dangerous!
