When I was expecting twins, I loved to see how the MDC mothers kept their babies in for such a long time. I knew that some twins come early, but reading the full-term birth stories were great. The poll about how our babies have been born has been great to show that twins CAN be born vaginally! So how long have we kept our babies in??? Let's inspire the new mothers out there!

Me... 37w5d. Babies were 6lb 8oz and 6lb 14oz.

ETA: That should be 31 - 32 weeks in the poll

37w3d. In hindsight I had a completely unnecessary failed induction that resulted in a c/s. Grr... They were big and healthy so no problems there but oh what I would do differently if I were to have more children (not in the plan).

Unnecessarily induced at 41 weeks. Resulted in miserable labor and birth a few days later. BUT I lied about my dates from day 1 so we got an extra week! I too would do thimgs differently, but am not having more children.

I was 38 weeks +3 when my boys were born, but didn't vote as there wasn't an option for 38-39 weeks.

ETA: They were 7lbs 4ozs and 7lbs 8ozs

I delivered my twins at 35 weeks but went into preterm labor that was stopped at 32 weeks. I delivered by emergency c/s under general because I started bleeding the placenta to baby a was tearing away from my uterus. When her water broke the water looked more like blood because of all the blood. I am just happy to have all 3 of my kids be healthy....

Star~ mommy to 3 year old and B/G twins 5 months old....

my twins were born at 30 weeks after 2 weeks of hospitalized bedrest. Preterm labor began at 21 weeks, was rushed to Vanderbilt in an ambulance in full blown labor. It was terrifying. I did meds & bedrest then hospital bedrest at 28 weeks because my maternal fetal specialists didnt think id make it home without giving birth. When i checked in to the hospital that day I was in labor and remained unstable for 4 days. 1 of my drs camped out at the hospital that weekend, they were all shocked i didnt deliver that weekend! But i showed them Made it 2 more weeks!

My twins were only in the NICU for 4 weeks! Came home at 34 wks gestation!! They are almost 14 months old now and do everything your typical 14 month old baby does! Walking, talking, etc. Its awesome. We have been so blessed and SO LUCKY!!!

37 wks 4 days. I went into preterm labor at 35 wks, so went on bedrest with medicine to stop contractions. After a week, my peri said it would be OK to deliver after that, so we stopped bedrest and meds. But the babies stayed for another week and a half. Had a cs and both boys were wonderfully healthy. 6 lb 15 oz and 5 lb 10 oz. The smaller baby caught up within 3 months and is now 3 inches and 3 pounds bigger (at 5 years old!)
