Most (all?) boas do this. I dont have any, but I think that would be pretty cool to witness.

Jackson's Chameleons have live young as do garter snakes, skinks, and the massassauga Rattler

Just a note (since two posts mentioned this) that not all skinks give birth to live offspring.
Scincidae is the largest family (about 1200 species) of lizards and there are both viviparous and oviparous representatives. In fact, the majority of skinks are oviparous, representing approximately 55%; whereas, approximately 45% of skink species are viviparous.
Cheers,
Ryan M Bolton

I know that with Lichanura the neonates emerge from the cloaca almost precisely folded in half. However, since litter size is so small, I suppose there is room for this sort of arrangement.

Reptiles don't have a womb. Whether they give birth to live young or lay eggs, the embryos still develop inside an egg sac and don't get any nutrition or direct help from mom's body. The cloaca is the vent, where the digestive, urinary and reproductive systems all meet up.
