    Default Pregnant after twins?

    Hi
    Something I have been thinking a lot about due to the fact that I'm pregnant again after having twins. I was told by a friend that if you went early with one baby (even if it was twins) you are likely to go early with your next bub.
    So my q is if you have had another baby after twins, what gestation was your twins and your next bub born at?
    Thanks for any replies

    Load of bull, there are different factors for premature babies in a multiple pregnancy and a singleton one will be completely different.

    I went into PTL 3 times with the twins before being induced and then emergency c-section at 35+2.
    I now also have an almost 5mo DD and had a perfect pregnancy and fantastic VBAC at 40+5.

    I'm sure you have absolutely nothing to worry about

    When my mum had twins (me and my sister) she went into labour and gave birth to us 7 weeks early. She had my younger sister 2 1/2 years later and had to be induced at 41 weeks.

    As pp said, having twins and then a singleton is very different (or so I've been told)

    every baby is different, my first son, born only 6 hours past due date. second pregnancy twins born 37 wks, third pregnancy, second son, one wk 5days past due date. The only true statement anyone can make, 'every baby is different' . Marie.

    I don't think it's true.
    first singleton 41+12 and that was with inducement.
    Twins - went into labour 35 weeks, but progression stopped with medication, until I had a c/section at36+2 (was still contracting for the 9 days though0
    Baby # 4 elective c/section at 38+3 with no signs of labour at all.
