I am very low risk for preterm labor EXCEPT for the little fact that I'm expecting twins . I'm healthy, neither placenta is close to the cervix, I had no complications with DD, and she was born at 41w3d weighing 8.5 lbs. All the books I've read urge twin mamas to really limit activity and quit work by 24 or 28 weeks. I'm in a position to sort of do that, in that DH and I are self-employed and split childcare. We have separate responsibilities, he manages our grassfed beef herd and I make wooden spoons and spatulas to sell on etsy, and we both share responsibility for our fruit and berry nursery stock business. So DH can take over most of my responsibilities, and I would switch to taking care of DD full time. The catch is that full-time stay-at-home-mothering might drive me crazy and is still every bit as much work as "working." It's just a little less "active" sort of work than what I'm currently doing, and if I didn't try to get other work done while watching her like we typically do, I would have some opportunities to put my feet up more during the day.
So what recommendations were you all given for limiting activity during your twin pregnancies? My family practice doc. said I should just keep going as long as it's still comfortable for me. Same recommendation she gives for singletons. But I REALLY do not want to risk preterm labor.
