STM with twins, when did you deliver?

Hi Ladies.  I'm just wondering when you delivered.   I'm 17weeks and have a toddler who will be 21 months if I make it to 38 weeks.  

Any tips/advice will be greatly appreciated!  Thanks!

Re: STM with twins, when did you deliver?

  • I made it to 38 weeks for my scheduled c/s. DD was 2 years 9 months when my boys were born. I was 4 cm dilated when I went in and likely would have gone into labor soon since I was dilating, contracting and effaced. but we'll never know since it was scheduled due to breach presentation.

    My twins are also my first and only. I carried to 38 weeks and had scheduled csec. I never went into real labor just had a lot of braxton hicks. I wish I had asked to be induced instead of having a csec. I thought recovery would be much easier. But I am still recovering and feel its been a slow recovery. No one told me you have severe leg/foot swelling after a csec that lasts up to 2 weeks. I also had terrible had pain and had aboggy uterus and had to go to ER two days after being discharged. My babies were both vertex so vag delivery would have been do-able. But I think that's the only thing I would change ifi could go back. Although, my babies did arrive safely and both healthy so the main goal was achieved :-)

  • My twins are #2&3. I delivered at 32 weeks after being on hospital bedrest for 5 days. I had a slow leak which landed me in the hospital and then an immediate c section as there were feet in the birth canal, baby a was breech.

    I carried older DS to 40w2d without any issues. The twin pregnancy was complication free until I started leaking. You just never know what's going to happen.
    Diagnosed MFI- low sperm count

  • I made it to 37weeks and went into labor.  Dr. was planning a C-section at 38 weeks but he didn't think I would make it, he was right.  By the time I got to hospital I was 6 cm and they started getting me ready.  45 mins later I was in the operating room for a C-section as Baby B was breach and I was 10 cm and A was trying to get out.  No complications, no NICU, all went well.  I didn't find the recovery hard/bad at all but each person is different.

  • @bumpuser909230, Thanks... there is hope that even with a very active toddler I will make it to 37-38 weeks.. here's hoping!

    @BabyKsmommy, Goes to show you that we just never know... I carried DD to 38 weeks and was induced due to low fluid levels.  But other then that no complications at all!

    @MKateG and s_cloeter, I can only hope I make it to 37 or 38 weeks!

    Thank you all for your responses!

    IVF #3: ER 12/1 and only 2 retrieved.  1 fertilized with ICSI.  Was planning on transferring one fresh and one frozen....fresh was only 14 cells at day 5...CANCELLED and devastated due to 5cm blood filled cyst in ovary and blood in uterus.

  • @Julie21613‌ still chilling out in the hospital!!! 30 weeks, 5 days and babies are thankfully still cooking. Scheduled for another ultrasound at some point today. As of yesterday Baby A was responding to the steroids and was practicing taking breaths in the womb. Baby B was not, so they want to check on that.....but I am flat on my back and just trying to keep them in for as long as I can!!

  • @allymas you are doing a great job cooking those babes!  T&P's that they cook a little longer!
