Fetal Development:

Nothing yet!

Maternal Changes:
Female Reproductive SystemYour uterus has shed its lining through your period and is now preparing a lush new bed of blood-rich tissue designed to house a growing fetus. Your eggs are ripening in one of the ovaries and preparing to release one.

Same as for singletons except that in the case of fraternal twins, your ovaries will release two eggs (or 3 in the case of fraternal triplets, etc.)

Ideas for Dad:

Okay Dad, on day 14, if Mom has a regular 28-day cycle, (counting from the first day of Mom's last period) which should be the end of this week, you know what to do! Enjoy, but remember, your involvement is needed throughout the pregnancy, not just for conception.

Inspirational Thoughts:
