    both

    Which is correct:
    1-I remember her working here during both her pregnancies.
    2-I remember her working here when she was pregnant with both her children. (I am assuming that the children aren't twins.)

    What about this:
    I remember her working here when she was pregnant two times.

    P.S: Neither a teacher nor a native speaker...

    Re: both

    I vote for #1 in your original post.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
