You are pregnant with twins! Now what? Exercise is key during pregnancy, but it may be even more important for you, but be careful, a twin pregnancy is a lot more demanding than a singleton pregnancy and you have to take it easy!

Twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome, also known as TTTS, is a condition that affects many twins in utero.

Twins with this disorder are more likely to be born prematurely than normal twin births.
