I'm expecting twins in September. I know they're likely to come early, I was just wondering how far along you were and how big your babies were. Did you need a c section?Did they have a long hospital stay?

I have two sets of twins. Both full term (39+6 and 40+3), vaginal births. Babies weighed 5.10/5.15 then 6.1/6.4. No hospital stay.

They don't have to come early, just usually do. I'm scared about when mine will come. I'm 8 weeks with twins right now.

I was 37 weeks, but my sons were tiny. DS1 was 5lbs and DS2 was 4 lb 11 ounces. They were born naturally. We were told they would have to stay in NICU for a month, but they were only in there for a little under two weeks, and that was mainly because DS2 had kidney problems. It was fine because I was in for 10 days anyway.

I always have very small babies though.
