365 Days of Twinipedia - Day 32

Day Thirty-two of Twinipedia: 

Fact #32 - 
Moms pregnant with twins have a lot of the same, typical pregnancy side effects as moms pregnant with singletons. Doctors find though ( that moms pregnant with multiples tend to complain of more back pain, sleeping difficulties, and heartburn than moms who are carrying one child. 

Moms pregnant with twins also have a higher rate of maternal anemia and a higher rate of postpartum hemorrhage (bleeding) after delivery.

So if you are pregnant with multiples, be prepared for some aches and pains and make sure to talk to your ObGyn/midwife about troublesome side effects.
