CSection Scheduled In 2 Weeks

I'm having a CSection March 1st. I will be 36 weeks by then. I was trying to avoid having a csection but I'm in a lot of pain and neither baby is in position so I gave in. I'm hoping I will last that long. Bad news for the older kids. They won't get to be in the room, but they will get to see their new baby brother and sister soon after. I'm off work this week because we are out of school and I think I will go ahead and take Monday and Tuesday off to get ready. I finally got the last thing I needed for the twins (a twin stroller), my bag is packed, the kids are packed up to go to grandma's (we went ahead and packed them up so that, if I went before the csection date, we could just grab their stuff and go) and I have the animals ready to go as well. I'm nervous and excited! Wish me luck!

I am 39 weeks will be 40 weeks on Thursday and I am in pain and have been for a few weeks and I want my baby here but I would never plan a c-section that early just because of being in pain.

36 weeks is considered full term. You're lucky if you get twins to last that long. source: Mother of identical twin boys, although they are 30 now.

That isn't the only reason. My doctor has been discussing a csection for a while. I wanted to hold out and have them naturally but I don't think that is going to work out. I can barely stand up and everything hurts. Both babies are breached.

I understand it is nothing uncommon to do that with twins.

Best of luck for both of you!

Why so early?

I always wanted twins but don't have any family history.

Do you have a lot of twins in your family tree? Is it common to skip a generation. That is the case with all the twins I know. Maybe a myth..
