Time to get checked: Usually if you haven't been on birth control and have tried for a year and not pregnant, it's time to see a doctor about it. Have your husband get checked first, as all he has to do is have the sperm checked, which is relatively easy.

Health Tips: You should talk to your doctor about diet, exercise, taking vitamins, etc. In addition, it is important to try and find out if the twins are in the same or different sacs. While this won't tell you if they are identical or fraternal, it will help to identify if they are at risk for twin-twin transfusion or cord entanglement. Discuss your options for delivery and risk of preterm labor as well.

Yes: Some like tylenol (acetaminophen) are class a drugs and totally safe. Class b drugs are almost always safe as well. If you have a question about a specific drug, ask your doctor prior to conceiving.

Dont be too serious: Many couples stop enjoying sex when they are trying to get pregnant. They lose the intimacy and "medicalize" the act. There is nothing sexy about timing intercourse around ovulation calendars and body temperature charts. Creating a baby together is amazing experience. Don't over think it. Just relax and have fun.

How does heparin work to assist conception?

This is a myth: There is a lot of misinformation about Heparin and Lovenox (enoxaparin) out there. These are injectable blood thinners that can be helpful for women with recurrent miscarriage due to anti phospholipid syndrome - a type of lupus. It is currently not recommended for infertility or for recurrent miscarriage unless you have anti phospholipid syndrome. This is a new acog recommendation just this year.

Pregnant?: The first thing you need to do is to take a pregnancy test. Your symptoms are not normal regardless of whether you are pregnant or not. See your gynecologist soon.
