That said, even for singletons, 38 weeks is considered full-term.

I feel like a freak at all other multiples boards besides this one. Everyone thinks my doctor must be bad to let me go past the 'full-term' 37-38 weeks for twins. My doctor would still be fine letting nature takes its course (with monitoring of course) for at least another 1-1.5 weeks, but I'm actually going crazy.
I guess all those months of being told that twins come early, made me start preparing for their entrance a month ago. Now here I am eating into my maternity leave, at almost 40 weeks. Anyway - this is the only board where I can see reassuring stories from people that delivered healthy twins at 39 weeks+. I thank you all for your support. And if I get one more email or phone call saying.. are they here yet? Any updates? What's going on? Does you doctor know what she is doing? I'm going to go ballistic.
