    Default How many weeks along at birth

    Hi there



    I am currently 37weeks and 2 days pregnant with twins and so surprised to have lasted this far - You know how you hear so many stories of premmie twins so just expect that to happen to you.

    So still going and booked for C/S at 38weeks 6 days

    Just wondering how far other twin mums have got.

    Hi Kelly,

    I am 28 weeks and 4 days and have gone into false labour twice already. I was in hospital last week and again this week. I cant imagine getting to 38 weeks! But like one midwife said, I'll probably get to 38 weeks and need to be induced! Have you had any signs of early labour at all???

    By the way I took a look at the photos of your tummy. Oh My Gosh! Its so big!! How are you coping??

    Take Care
    Love Kel

    Hi Kel
    No signs of early labour, though every time I have a period like cramp or back is aching DH says "is it time?" He's anxious for them to be born now.

    Yep my belly is huge.

    I can say I am over being pregnant (though I feel terrible thinking it) I am tired all the time, lucky I get to rest a lot, plus hard to get comfortable. But just think that by 11 days time I will have 2 beautiful babies.

    Good luck yourself

    Kelly W OMgosh what a beautiful belly - your belly is so huge (sorry) and I can't imagine getting that big.Thankyou for sharing it.

    I didn't know they made you wait till that long with twins I certainly hope not in my case.

    I can imagine getting comfortable would be difficult :shock: just walking must ache your back

    Thinking of you over next week or so - you are amazing =D>

    Well done to get that far Kelly!!

    I am 33/4 or so and like you OVER it!
    I am due to be C-sectioned on anzac day but provided I dont go before 36 weeks I should be happy... if it wasnt for the babies health I would go now I am so tired and uncomfortable!
    I am going to ask my SD to take a pic of my belly next week for posterity!

    Good luck and keep hoping only another week to go
