Tomorrow is possibly double digits...

Twins on average come five weeks early (~ 35 weeks); although, the mean is 34-37. If I were to have these babies on Feb 17 (exactly 35 weeks), tomorrow would mark only 99 days until their arrival. :eek:

Obviously, my big goal is to make it to 37.5 weeks (when they'll induce). But my main goal is just to make it to 35 weeks - getting so close. Yahoo

I must enjoy sleep, relaxing, and doing whatever the he!! I want for the next 100 days!

Either way these babies are coming fast! Are you getting ready for the twins yet? I thought you might have said first of the year. Other than reading everything in the world? Smile

True, but my doctor won't let me go over 37.5 weeks. They'll definitely induce or do a c-section then. So at the very most it is 117 days left!

Can I ask why?

Also, yayyy for double digits! I can't believe how fast our pregnancies are flying by. I'm 20 weeks this week. Halfway already!

Because they start to get too "crowded." With all that weight (from placenta, baby, and amniotic fluid), there is an increased risk of preeclampsia, placental abruption, hemorrhage and hypertension. Also, there is an increased risk of prolapse cord if the babies are sitting on it. So they consider 37-38 weeks "full term" for twins. But 60% come before 37 weeks anyway, many for these reasons!

Wow!! How exciting! It is getting close for me too. Especially since my dr. Officially moved my due date to Feb 26th. But I totally forgot that for you they will come before 40 wks because its twins! How exciting. Oh and yes, get your sleep and anything else you want to do done now!!! Even with single babies, I feel like the first one totally changes your whole life. You'll never realize how much you loved just the simplest things like taking a shower or watching a movie. Won't happen uninterrupted for a very long time once the babies are here!
