Did you miss something? Don’t you hate it when you do? No worries as I’ve got you covered. Below are the most popular posts on Talk About Twins for 2012. Although the number one spot belongs to the homepage, I’m excluding it from this list.

  1. Just How Many Yams Do You Have to Eat to Conceive Twins?

    This old post (from 2010!) continues to attract a lot of attention from (I’m presuming) moms who’d love to give birth to twins.

  2. Twin Pregnancy

    This is technically a page and not a post that assembles all the twin pregnancy articles on Talk About Twins including an excerpt on the subject from my book, Double Duty (2e) plus lots of other helpful articles on breast-feeding twins, getting ready for twins, exercising during a twin pregnancy and so forth.
