1. 42+1 (2002)
2. 36+3 (twins) (2003)
Neither one was spontaneous. I was induced with #1, but....I really do not think things were ready to go. Every time the pitocin was turned down contractions flatlined.
#2 was by cesarean because *I* became very ill with acute fatty liver of pregnancy (life threatening illness) plus the boys had TTTS *and* were transverse so vaginal delivery wasn't really an option. However, *they* were in pretty good health and I think probably would have gone to term. It'll be interesting to see how #4, due in March, will go.
I go backwards and seem to have a longer pregnancy each time! I'm expecting baby #5 to come before I hit 39 weeks, though.
