    Sugan... Im a dumbo in understanding all the medical terms :) I dont have twin history in my immediate family :)
    I am doing okay at the moment (fingers crossed) My doctor told if I can carry till the 38th week, they will wait till then... but as you know it is all conditional!! dont know about the placenta position...! :( as i told im a big dumbo in understanding these stuff... but at times i think less knowledge can be useful at times, as it gives less tension :) how r u doing?

    Congratulations ladies here welcome to the twin club ! ...
    I am a mother of twin too a boy and girl now 3.3 yrs old
    .. Though mine was an emergency c section at just 32 weeks ... I had bleeding nd my water broke too . My kids were shifted in nicu and kept for nearly 2 mnths . But all is well when it ends well :)
    All the best to you guys .. It's always better if you can manage to reach Atleast 36 weeks that's generally considered full term for twin moms ...
    Tk care
    All the best
    Ramya

    My best friend had twins in 2011 when I delivered my son. It was when she was in her 34th week due to water break.
    It was an emergency C-section too. Hers are identical twins, and they are now 2.5 yrs old
    She stayed at the hospital for 1 week, but the babies did not stay at NICU.

    The doctors always say that the babies were big for their gestational age, so it wasn't a problem for them, I guess.

    Although, both the babies looked too tiny when they were born, they quickly put on weight, and at the age of 04 months, they weighted exactly the same as my single born son of their age.

    Water breaks naturally, and also it normally brings the labor pain too. But in some cases, when there is no labor pain after certain interval, they would perform C-section as there is a risk that the baby can be dried inside.
