    I am currently 30+6 weeks with fraternal twins. Rang the midwife on wed as my discharge had gone slightly mucousy and yellow. No pain but on examination 1cm dilated with a soft cervix and tightenings on the monitor. Given steoids and put on bed rest. However, today am 2cm dilated still no pain. Looks like these twins want to get out. xx

    Hi. Just thought i'd update, I am still in hospital, but the good news is my twins are still cooking! The doctors think they will make an appearance at any time, hence, i have got to stay in hospital until i am 34 weeks or i have them ~ whichever comes sooner.
    Will update with any developments. x

    If i get to 34 weeks i can have more steroid injections and then go home. I am 31+4 at the moment, bet these two will let me get to 33+6 and then decide to arrive. Ha.

    Twin 1 is head down at the mo so as long as he or she stays like that they say i can try a natural delivery. Twin 2 is the rebel at the moment as has been transverse, breech, head down, breech, head down etc and has a mad half hour when they to get the tracings on them. I'm sure the midwives draw staws as to who has to attempt to get good heart tracing from the twins.

    The hospital stay is a real pain, but if it means my babies stay cooking for a bit longer then i am prepared to do anything. Its a small sacrifice. xx
