So tomorrow I have my first appt with my OBGYN, I wanted to know if there are any specific questions that I should be asking now that I have twins vs. a singleton.

I have no idea exactly what to ask. I dont want to sit there saying ummm...any advice on what to ask for?

I can't even remember all the things One of the things I wanted to know was my chances of having a csection. I asked what my doctors rules were to be able to deliver vaginally. I also asked about how many people I can have in the OR with me. I had already done a ton of research on diet and other things before going in, so I didn't need much info on that. I think whatever you're wondering about you can go ahead and ask.

Thank you peimum for my siggie

I didnt ask many questions when I went to the doctor for the first time either. I already knew I was having twins before ever being seen by a doctor and I was already educating myself on the internet. I did ask about my doctors experience in caring for someone with twins and what my medical care would look like for a healthy pregnancy and what to expect. I felt so good with my doctor because I loved him, he delivered my daughter 7 years earlier and even had infant twins himself and his wife was cared for at the office he practices at but had to see a different DR because he cant legally care for her.

I would ask policies on Vag vs C/section delivery, what doc considers full-term for twins. How many twins have they delivered, whats their on-call policy. If your OB isn't on-call who will deliver your twins and can you meet them. I had a little note pad I took with me, when I thought of a question I would write it down and then pull it out during appts. Fortunately my OB is one of the most patient docs and took time to answer everything!!
