There is a foyer between the rooms with two down staircases, one up and a bathroom.  Was planning on blocking off the foyer so that I wouldn't have to put up gates at each stairway.  Maybe I'm being overprotective but don't I need to have them in my line of sight?  Even in a "babyproof" room things can go wrong.  
Thanks.  That'll be nice when they can amuse each other for an hour.  People keep asking me if my girls play together yet.  My response is that they steal toys away from each other and pull each other's hair.  Not sure if that's "playing."  :)   I wish you could see my house and give me some ideas. We spend most of our time in the kitchen and in the family room which is in the basement.  I'm thinking we'll have a play area in the family room.  I'm not sure what to do...
So my twin girls are 7 1/2 months (adjusted) and are almost crawling.  I'm wondering how you ladies handled your babies at this stage.  My main concern is what's a safe place to put one baby while I'm changing or moving the other to another floor of the house.  Until now they were safe in a bouncy seat or on a play mat for a couple minutes.  We haven't used a playpen or exersaucer because I don't think they're healthy but maybe they're necessary with twins if only for a...
Hi,   Sorry it took me a while to check back in.  Thank you for your replies.     My water broke on 1/11, they did an ultrasound at the hospital and they were still both breech so our girls were born by c-section at 37 weeks 6 days.  They weighed 7lbs 5oz and 6lbs 6oz.  One of them had blood in her stool and had to spend a little over 24 hrs in the NICU until testing proved that it was my blood she had swallowed when her water broke.  They had some weight issues...
Anybody else have back spasms at the end of their pregnancy?  I was awake last night having hot flashes and all of a sudden I had the most excruciating waves of pain in my middle and lower back.  It went on for fifteen minutes and was followed by an hour of shaking and chills.  I'm wondering if the babies hit a nerve.  Is this normal?

I am 37 weeks with di/di twins.  So far I have had a very uneventful pregnancy.  The only unfortunate thing being that baby A switched to breech at 28 weeks and has not turned back.  My OB would have been comfortable with a vaginal delivery as long as A was vertex.  Now I've gotten to a point where they want to talk about scheduling a section.  She initially suggested 38 weeks but after I asked whether I could wait a little longer said that she would be willing to...
