    Twin Pregnancy 36-40 weeks

    Most mothers carrying multiples will deliver around this time. Babies born before now may require special care in an intensive care unit. However, it is a fact that mothers carrying more than one child generally do not remain pregnant as long as those women carrying one child. At this point of the pregnancy, you probably are feeling a great sense of being "done" with the pregnancy. Try to enjoy the last few weeks, as you will soon miss the feeling of being pregnant.

    Most twins will weigh in around 5-7 pounds. If your babies are much smaller than this, they might have to remain at the hospital until they reach a healthy weight to go home. Babies that are much smaller than this will have a hard time regulating their own body temperature and will have to stay warm inside of special baby beds.

    Labor and delivery of twins is not very much different than that of a single pregnancy. Of course, there are more babies to deliver, but the process is the same.

    At The Doctor
    Your doctor may set a date for your delivery if you need a cesarean section delivery. Otherwise, you will wait until your water breaks or you start dilating and having contractions. Your doctor will be doing pelvic exams to see what type of progress your cervix is making. As any questions about the upcoming delivery. He will also be checking:
    1.) Weight
    2.) Blood pressure, pulse and respiratory rate
    3.) Breast exam
    4.) Pelvic exam
    5.) Fetal heartbeat
    6.) External palpation of the uterus
    7.) Urine screen
    8.) Ultrasound assessment
    9.) Heart and lungs
