It took three years and four rounds of IVF to con­ceive her twin daugh­ters. “I had been told a mil­lion times that it would take a lot of med­i­cal in­ter­ven­tion to have an­other child,” says Alisyn. When the girls were tod­dlers, Alisyn was out cel­e­brat­ing her birth­day. Her friends no­ticed she was hav­ing trou­ble zip­ping up her pants. “I made my hus­band take me for an emer­gency doc­tor’s visit for strange ab­dom­i­nal dis­ten­tion.
