Stimulant: Caffeine is a relatively potent stimulant, and as true with all stimulants, it can cause palpitations and a rise in one's heart rate. Should one experience multiple palpitations and/or an elevated heart rate for a prolonged period of time, be sure to see your physician.

Healthy, real food!: The current studies show that if you are eating a healthy balanced diet you don't need multivitamins. And they may do more harm than good. Concentrate on lean protein, lots of fruits and vegetables, and whole grains. The one thing you do not need, are "supplements" marketed to weightlifters.

Sensible: A sensible balanced diet is recommended. The pregnancy hormones make you kind of a carb junkie, so watch that. Make sure you eat some protein. Most twin moms need extra iron.
