When were your twins born?


I have been doing a lot of research on when twins are typically born. From the information I found it looks like a little more than 50% of twins are born BEFORE 36 weeks. It seems like this is a common question for those expecting twins and I thought this poll might help those of us trying to be prepared for the arrival of our twins. I know many of us do not have NICUs in our immediate area and so a NICU stay would require jumping through a lot of loops. Thank you for being willing to participate in my "unscientific" poll!

Hey hun, mine were delivered by planned section at 38+2 and had showed no sign of coming before then. Twin A was breech and had some minor respiratory distressat birth (section/breech related) but only needed a whiff of oxygen xx

I had a scheduled induction at 37+2 because twin b's growth rate had slowed. Neither baby spent any time in nicu and we only stayed 2 nights in the hospital.

Mono/Di twins born at 33+5 weeks via c-section due to IUGR & restricted blood flow to Mikhail and pre-eclampsia ... The boys spent 22 days in NICU before coming home.
