Thanks @phee83, good to hear that it's worked for you taking the time earlier! 32 weeks is a big achievement for twins so nice job baking them!
I'm lucky that I can work from home, I'm pretty sure my boss would be fine with me working from home from 25 - 30 weeks, and then maybe taking leave from then.
I think the reason I was so surprised is because one of my close girlfriends had twins recently and worked up until 34 weeks. But she was in struggletown towards the end, and did have threatened growth issues around 29 weeks, which I'd forgotten about.

Not sure if you're interested in hearing from me because it was a while ago now..! I worked at full duties (teacher) right up until 34 weeks when I was required to take leave. I actually could have kept going. Yes, it was a bit hard but achievable.

Of course I want to hear from you! I can use all the advice I can get, haha!
I bet you were over the moon when you did start your mat leave, working to 34 weeks with twins is heroic!

Hi Ladies, I'm a high school teacher and 17 pregnant with Di-Di Twins. Hanging for morphology scan at 19 + 4 weeks to find out what colours my little blessings will be. My current plan r.e. work is to apply for maternity leave from 32 weeks, but realistically just want to be able to finish term 1. As for baby bump, I popped at 13 weeks and now I look about 30 weeks pregnant LoL. I can't wait for the students reactions next week. Will be hilarious. Love and Hugs to All xxx

I stopped working at 12 weeks but that was due to other reasons that I won't go into. I probably could have worked until about 25 weeks. I chose not to find work because I was having some unexplained fainting and with DH working full time - I didn't leave the house much. After 25 weeks I really struggled. My boys were born at 35+4 after I was diagnosed with pre-eclampsia (had been in hospital since 34+6).

Hi ladies. I'm currently 10w5d pregnant with di-di twins due in August. These are my 4th and 5th babies so a huge surprise. I feel very blessed to have these babies growing happy and healthy, however I'm really struggling with this pregnancy. I have been diagnosed with hypermesis and am medications for that. I honestly can't wait for maternity leave because I work a high stress job as a theatre nurse. Looking forward to putting my feet up and been able to rest.

Hope everyone is doing well!?
I just found out I'm having twins, 8 wks & 5 days. (Although I seem to be the only person who doesn't know what type of twins they are :S )
It will be my 3rd and 4th baby (I have a Boy 5 and Girl 4 already).
The more I read the more I'm freaking out LOL Just looking for some advice off of people who are in the same boat.

Congratulations and welcome @StretchmarkBarbie and @CatNoonan08!
We weren't 100% sure on what kind of twins we had on board until the 12 week scan when they confirmed 2 separate sacs and 2 placentas so most likely fraternal. Then it was confirmed again at 20 weeks when we found out we were having a boy and a girl! No doubt about it now!
Are you all members of your local multiple birth association? I went to one of their expectant parent nights and it was so informative!

Tilkah? I'm a secondary teacher too and my kids were so excited! They were really keen to know the gender so when we found out it was one of each I brought pink and blue columbine lollies to home room and told and waited for them to figure it out

I just had my dating (7 weeks) scan last night and was surprised to find that I have two little ones.
I think I am still recovering from shock as I so did not expect this and they are my first so I was already freaking out a bit over having one let alone two!
