I knew it was possible and even probable that I'd carry my twins we into the "term" weeks. I'd already had four babies and all were born big, healthy, and term with no complications. My body is sort of amazingly adept at growing babies (hence my having six of them
). I have zero ego about that and I'm actually in awe at how easy it was for me to carry twins. But I did always have it in the back of my mind that something could come up and they might come early. I literally felt like I was holding my breath until we got to 30 weeks.
I didn't overly prepare but I did have a well informed doula who knew what my wishes were if we ended up in preterm labor in the hospital or needed to transport.
