Hey everyone, how are you all going? Im now 29 weeks with mcda boys due for csection around 7th March!
Hi wannabe mummy, it was 29 weeks when I was hospitalised. You may well be two steps ahead of where I was then but I'd wished I'd packed my own hospital bag by then. DH did good job of bringing whatever I needed but I would have just liked to do it myself
Congrats hopeful! ! they're here! !! Welcome all the new twin mummies!!
My twin girls arrived last Friday by c section at 35+3. Both did brilliantly and didn't need any time in special care. Came with me to the postnatal ward and we were all discharged yesterday.

28 weeks over here and the size of 39 weeks. I've got a scan this morning, I can't wait.
On another note, was diagnosed with gestational diabetes last week and have been taking my blood levels for 3 days now, it's a whole new world to get used to.
Congratulations @maxinem2112 they are gorgeous and well done on not needing any special care ! @RAH10 good luck on your scan, they are so exciting when there are two real little people in there jumping around
What are all your thoughts on visitors and/or keeping people away when your twins are premature and haven't yet had their whooping cough vaccinations either? I'm thinking of telling people to not even think about coming to the hospital if they even have a slight sniffle and to stay away from our home until they are 8 weeks unless you have had your whooping cough vacc... TBH I don't really want any of my family's kids even turning up - considering how many other kids they have been around at school etc. Is this just me being a baby-nazi ? I just think it would be bad enough having one baby sick, let alone two... especially when they won't be as strong or immune as a full term baby.
RAH, well done you on getting so far without problems. Not long to persevere?
JulieMalooney, great question. We've been giving some thought to this. Both ours are in Nicu so we've used that as an excuse to say 'don't come'. It's worked well with most but we've had to relax this a bit for my in laws. I got ok with this on the basis I had the jab before I gave birth and that's meant to lessen risk of catching by 80%. Just as an aside I understand there are national shortages of the vaccine and mums in third trimester are being prioritsed
