    I haven’t  been in your situation, but I have a good friend that had twins at age 40. She had an uncomplicated pregnancy. She delivered via c section, but that was her choice, not due to any sort of medical need. 
    Your doctor will be able to give you a much better feel for your particular risk level, but there are plenty of women that have uncomplicated pregnancies and births in their 40s. 
  • Congrats lady. I'll be 39 and just found out we've also got twins, but are really early on but both hearts are beating. I'm a FTM and was also hoping for as natural as possible, but if there's two...dunno if this "geriatric" body can hang.
