I am just over 35 weeks and definitely feeling like I'm ready to get these babies out!!! (though I know another week or two is best for them.) So, in looking for the light at the end of the tunnel, I am curious when you twin mamas went into labor. Was it spontaneous, or did you have to be induced/have a c-section for other reasons? It seems like most twin moms I've talked to didn't make it to the end, or even to 36 weeks, but it was because there was something else going on - concerns about one or both of the babies, blood pressure, etc. I am wondering when twin moms went into labor when they didn't have any other complications.
Oh, and maybe you shouldn't say if you went passed 37 weeks, because I might cry
Big Brother Darius excited for the arrival of
Marcus and Sophie
I was 36w5d when my water broke. I was maybe 1cm dilated at the time. I completely understand the feeling of wanting to be done. Hang in there though. It's so much better for those two to hang out for just a little bit longer.
Thank you peimum for my siggie

I was induced at 36w 5 days. I hadn't been having any real issues at all, but when I went in for my appt at 36w 3d I was spilling proteins. My OB sent me for some tests and when my 24 hour urine came back, he called me that night and said he wanted to induce me the next day. So, it could happen fast (faster than I was ready for, because I was sure I was going to make it to at least 38 weeks)

35wks was probably one of the hardest weeks for me physically and emotionally and for whatever reason 36 was easier and then I made it to 37w3d. I even had my mind set to make it to 38wks at that point. You are almost done doing one of the hardest things ever, hang in there, You can totally do this!!!
