a healthy diet will surely help you deal with multiple pregnancy along with a positive attitude. Be relaxed and mentally prepared for childbirth. rather than hearing horror stories about multiple pregnancies, focus on positive and happy ones. some form of physical activity is helpful

diabetes can be scary especially when you are planning to get pregnant. taking care assumes a whole new meaning as you have to think about conceiving. all you need for a healthy pregnancy is to constantly monitor and control the blood sugar levels.
