Twins and worried about prematurity

Elina - posted on 02/17/2014 ( 1 mom has responded )




Hi everyone, I'
m so glad to be part of this support network and have been seriously freaking out lately. I'm 31 weeks along expecting twin girls. It's been a very complicated pregnancy with mild twin to twin transfusion syndrome and gestational diabetes. I'm terrified of having two sick premature babies and our doctor doubts we'll make it to 36 weeks. Has anyone has experience with twins being delivered this early?

Congratulations! My friend's are twins and they were born premature. When their mom went into labor she had to get them removed not by pushing. They were flipped upside down and it would be dangerous if she tried to push them out. They were 3 lbs and had to go in an incubator for 2 weeks but when they came home were healthy. It was worth it. There was one result in one twin that happened later when she was 10 and she got problems where she would repeat words and louder each time. That was just a phase they were so worried but they took her to a therapist. So this is what happened to my friends who were premature twins. Hope I helped!! Congrats again. :-)
