A poll for mamas of twinnies!

When did your twinnies make an appearance?

A total of 50 Votes have been submitted.

2%

Before 28 weeks (1)

26%

Between 28 and 34 weeks (13)

32%

Between 34 and 37 weeks (16)

40%

After 37 weeks (20)

When I was pregnant, I spent a lot of time searching in here to find out about other multiple pregnancies. My fellow NCT'ers were all pregnant with singletons, and they didn't have the same worries as I did (essentially soul searching about planned c-sections, fear of early delivery etc).

I've added polls below about the outcomes of multiple pregnancy, if you are a proud mama of twinnies, please fill it in if you fancy it.

Thank you to all the mamas so far for voting!
And lots of love to all the twin mamas-to-be! Meeting you babies for the first time is the most wonderful thing in the world! Makes me well up now just thinking about it.

Like you, Mavis, I spent a good part of my pregnancy worrying about premature delivery and the associated problems only to go to nearly 38 weeks - such a waste of energy!

I only just spotted this poll, I just ended up in the 34-37 weeks section as my twins were born at 36w6d! I wanted a NVD, but the Drs decided the whip 'em out because Lukas looked a lot smaller than Finn and they didn't want to leave them in any longer. In the end the difference was only about half a pound, and I think they would have happily stayed put for a while longer.

Added my stats to the poll as I found this quite interesting when I was pregnant with my twins.
I had an emergency c-section after a failed induction at 38+2.

The results are very interesting to see. I was hoping to be induced and have a NVD at 38 weeks or a planned c-section if twin 2 remained breech. I ended up going for my 32 week scan, getting diagnosed with severe pre-eclampsia and having an emergency c-section.

Fab, thanks Mr C!

And I wanted to add one more poll. It seems to me that twinnie girls are taking over ?! Are there more twin girls than boys? Thought a poll could answer that for us.

I never saw the latest poll before, I had a feeling my boy/boy twins were in the minority! It does seem that the girls are indeed taking over the world, as if every baby has a 50% chance of being a girl, then there should be 25% girl/girl 25% boy/boy and 50% boy/girl. My scrumptious adorable little boys will obviously be in demand :D .

Added my Boy/Boy Twinnies too, to make up the numbers! Happy to provide a response for the natural AND C-Section delivery option too. I wish i'd been able to read through al the info/ these forums in the pregnancy but i was too sick to read a screen or books, so it's really interesting to read all about everyone with twins now.

Best Wishes
Alex :)
