If your regular bras are starting to pinch, invest in ones made especially for pregnant women. Good maternity bras should provide you with ample support, have wide straps, and be made of fabric that won't irritate your already sensitive nipples.
It's not too late to sign up for prenatal yoga, a gentle regimen that combines exercise tailored especially for your changing body with breathing techniques. An added bonus: You'll meet other expectant moms, and if you hit it off with some of them, you've got a built-in mother's group waiting in the wings.
Your off-and-on libido may now be returning from its nausea- and fatigue-induced first-trimester sabbatical, so take advantage of it while it's here. It just may pull another disappearing act sometime during the third trimester. But avoid one position: the missionary. Lying flat on your back is not a good idea because it may put too much pressure on the veins that deliver oxygen to the baby.

Many parents of twins swear by "co-bedding" because it saves space, and many believe babies sleep better with their womb-partner close by. This practice, however, is not recommended by the SIDS Alliance. Laura Reno, a spokesperson for the group, points out that you don't know when an infant will begin rolling over, and if a twin can burrow his face into his sibling, there could be an elevated SIDS risk.
