I called this week ‘Research Week’ because I spent a lot of time online researching information about babies and twins. As I said when I started this blog there is undoubtedly a lot of information out there about the development of babies but not as much for twins. However, I found some useful information with regards to the changes pregnant women go through in the first trimester which I wasn’t aware of.
Have you heard of the Baby Centre? If not I strongly recommend you sign up if you’re pregnant. They are an American based company that started in 1997 and provide information and advice about conception, pregnancy, birth, early childhood development for parents and expecting parents. They have a really good app you can download on your phone and provide weekly updates on the development of your baby once you sign up and enter your due date BabyCenter.
Unfortunately there isn’t much information on twins but that seems to be the case everywhere. I’m yet to find a website or app devoted to multiple babies only. If anyone knows of one please let me know.
On the Baby Centre app you can track your babies growth week by week and they also have useful tips and support when going through your 1st, 2nd and 3rd trimester. Even better I found meal plans which I have used to ensure my babies are getting the right amount of nutrients to develop as well as taking pregnacare vitamins which helps to prevent birth defects.
Another website and app I have registered with is the bump. They are also an American company based in NYC. There app is as good as the baby centre app. They give you weekly updates, answer questions you might have and have a forum of mums for the different dates your baby is born on – pretty cool I’d say.
