    Default Carrying twins when overweight

    Has anyone been overweight and carried twins? I'd like to hear about how much you were overweight when carrying them and your experience (good or bad)?

    I am overweight and carrying twins and a little concerned about the babies health and mine and how I will go carrying them.

    My sister carried her girls almost to term (36 weeks) but was put on bedrest at 30 weeks, and hospitalised at 34 weeks before induction at 36 weeks. She didnt really have the expected complications from her weight, but was MUCH more tired than normal.
    Im also overweight, and pregnant (only a singleton this time) and Im finding this pregnancy much harder than my twin pregnancy (though I didnt carry both babies to term)
