I had an ultrasound Thursday and both babies are in the birthing position. The ultrasound tech said my cervix looked closed but I'm worried. DD wasn't in the birthing position until 37 weeks. She came 2 weeks later. Plus the twins are getting really really active. Should I be worried?

How many weeks are you? And just being in position....doesn't mean much. I wouldn't worry.

I wouldn't worry. My boys were flipping until the day they were born at 39 weeks!

Mine moved into the birth position at 26 weeks...and stayed that way until 34 weeks (fortunately, they made it to 37 weeks--and Baby A moved back head-down) when they decided heads-up was the way to go :/
Also, and I don't know if this is the actual truth, but my OB said that twins only "feel" more active because, well, you've basically got a two-headed octopus in there (and they have someone else to interact with, ie: Hey! You kicked me--what was THAT! Kick back/move away from the unpleasantness that is being kicked and hit constantly ;)

My girls were both head down at about 25 weeks. Then, baby B flipped until about 34 weeks. They were both head down when they were born at 35 weeks and 5 days.

Mine were both head down from about 26 weeks and stayed that way until I had them at 36 weeks. I didn't start to dilated until I was around 34 weeks and I only got to 1 cm.

I wouldn't worry too much. My twins made a perfect T shape. My daughter was breached, doc had to reach up their and take her out I begged her to take her by c sec. she did not stupid woman. I wouldn't worry twins have a mind of their own.

 Remember every pregnancy is different and a twin one is a lot different than a single, so try to relax, they may re-position themselves a few more times then come back to the birthing position or they may be getting cozy just hanging out until its time (mine were in position for a month and a half before they came which was at 37 weeks 6 days.
