I am currently almost 32 weeks pregnant with twins. I was wondering how many of you went full term or went early with your twins? If you went early - how early and how long did your babies have to stay in the hospital? I am just wondering because I have heard so many different things! Thanks in advance!

32 weeks! Congrats on making it this far!!

I had my girls at 37 weeks and 4 days. They did not go to the NICU at all. Do you know if you are dilated or anything yet? At 33 weeks, I was 3 cm dilated and I think 80% effaced. My Dr. thought I would go that week. Nope! My body wanted to keep them in! My water broke at 37+4, but I didn't have any productive contractions at all! Had to get pitocin.

They have not checked me to see if I am dialated yet. I am wondering if they will check me when I go on Tuesday. I have never went into labor on my own! lol I have always had to be induced. I was really hoping for them not to have to go to NICU.

I went at 35w6d and my babies were both healthy and happy. Eclipse went to the NICU for 3 days. She came home with us when we were discharged from the hospital.

I had my twins at 29 weeks 5 days but they figured out after assessing them they were 29 weekers. They stayed in the NICU for eight and nine weeks, but they had no major problems just feeders and growers.

I wasnt checked until the day I delivered. I thought I would have more checks but it seemed to be the norm not to until later in pregnancy.

I do know that my DR was not comfortable "messing around" down there because he didn't want to stir anything up. I would ask him to check me though, just for my own good.

I had my twins at 33 weeks and 4 days because I went into labor.

Congrats on 32 weeks!!! You're doing awesome baking those babies!! I was induced just under 38 weeks for blood pressure issues, but they weren't ready to come out! They spent 2 days in the NICU. So, every baby is totally different!! Just keep up the great work!
