When people hear that I have six kids, the reaction is usually entertaining.

Those who are pregnant with twins have an increased risk of pregnancy complications, so it’s essential to know as early as possible whether you are carrying more than one baby.

As much fun as it is to do the baby dance, you want to understand what happens at fertilization so that you can imagine your little one developing inside you. You can get pregnant about 14 days after your last period, but you won’t be able to see or feel results for another 10 to 14 days after that.
