If you are at risk for PTL they can usually tell by 20 weeks or so and take the appropriate precautions then.
SAHM to twin kindergarteners
I am 31, first pregnancy EVER, and husband and I just found out last week we are having fraternal twins!
I am now almost 16 weeks
I am an RN (nurse) who works at least 3 13-14-hour shifts per week. Basically I am on my feet from 6AM to 10PM at night if you include I walk home from work as well etc. I don't actually sit down until about 10:30PM at night! Now I'd planned to work all the way through to my due date January 28th, but since the news of twins I am terrified of an early preterm birth
the days I work NOW I already feel like a tightness in my belly some times during the day (especially later in the day). I don't know what Braxton Hicks are supposed to feel like but needless to say it scares me
what are your recommendations? I have YET to read all the twins books we picked up from Borders this week!
(I am sad also I can't be seen by my midwife because in my state if you are having twins you're considered "high risk" automatically. My OB appt. is this next Tues.)
