    Musicgal,let me know if you have any queries on the PE. I had that with mine and can tell you that whilst it sounds a scary diagnosis - you'll get great care. Mine was diagnosed at 27 weeks and I was hospitalised to 'bake' them. I delivered at 34 weeks (nicu and scn for 22 days) and mine are now nine weeks and thriving (and I'm doing great too)

    Default Twins due in 2016

Me and dh were taken back when the doc said he didn't need to see me again until 36 weeks because I had a good midwife, he then was talking about having a natural birth not even considering c section at my 45 with twins. After dh got assertive asked for appointments and schedule c section we got somewhere, when doc admitted c section is best for me, not hospital policy. Anyhow my c section is booked for 38 weeks, I don't know of any mums that got to 38 weeks, what was the longest mummies went. I know in usa it's more like 36.

    I've been reading about how important sleeping on your side, especially left side is for mum and baby circulation.
    Our OB had us booked for a C/Section at 37 weeks but our twinnies had other ideas and contractions started on 36w3d. They arrived early the next morning via emergency c/section at 36w4days.

    And yes sleeping on your left is better for circulation (heart is on the left) and also helps liver /gall bladder function better.

    Good Luck RAH - your world is about to change immensely - enjoy every second meeting your bubbas. Those early days are precious!

    Thanks Hopeful. At this stage it's mild PE, but I'm back in hospital cos bp is playing silly buggers. Everyone just thinks it's best, and yeah, they don't want to mess around with it. I'm booked in for a c sec at 37+3.....not sure if I'll make it that far! ? Depends what the PE does i guess, but both bubs are super happy and growing well so they won't pull them til/if things start looking down.

    PE can be quite unpredictable - they struggled to control my bp in weeks 27-28 and were readying me to deliver(steroids, whooping cough vax, getting me to take all my rings off), then when bp was under control and they were giving me gate leave from hospital, my liver function started playing up - weirdly through it all, I didn't feel in the least bit unwell.

    The best advice I could give is that it's unpredictable and if you're particular about shopping for your hospital bag, get it ready now. I enjoy packing - maybe it's about anticipating something exciting yet to happen or mentally preparing myself. I ended up having to get my ds to shop from a list and,grateful as I was, I felt I missed out on the excitement of doing it myself. Of course, could be I'm a bit bonkers

    Hopeful, yeah PE is a tricky one. I kinda feel weird about being in hospital cos don't feel sick, and the bp is so random. Sometimes it's up, sometimes it's down. It's hard to know if I should just stay in hospital or go home. no liver or kidney problems and bp not high enough to medicate. Just protein in urine and random high bp and feeling hot in the head or compressed, if that makes sense?
    Funny on the packed bag thing. I had my hospital bag ready to go early, just in case the bubs came early. I think it's just that thing about being 'robbed' of how you thought things would happen, but it goes differently. 😯

    Congratulations, absolutely gorgeous. Hope mum and bubs doing well.
    Musicgal, how frustrating. There seems to be no reason or rhyme to PE, it seems like a lottery. I'm now planning on more than likely getting it while hoping I don't. Take care.
