This is the month that the babies would move their heads towards the pelvic region or face downwards. And, they would remain in that position until they come out on their own. In the absence of this position, the doctor would recommend the need for a Caesarian-section or C-section. If that is the case, then you will need to decide on the date. This process is called elective C-section.
But, if the birth takes place in the normal way, it is necessary for you to keep track as to when the water bag breaks and if you feel any dilation of the cervix. So, what do you need to do to make things easier for yourself at this last stage? Keep your feet up as much as possible. If the Braxton Hicks contractions take place more frequently, may be four in an hour, or there is dilation of the cervix, it is time for you to rush to the hospital.
Just in case, the babies are born the natural way before the end of this month, the babies would have to spend some time in the incubator or an electric bed. Such a stay would be required so that the body temperature of the babies can be regulated. Though getting out of the womb beforehand has its distinct disadvantages, as a mother, you do not have to feel bad about it. In fact, you should congratulate yourself for having carried twins for so long. Rapid strides in the field of medical science have ensured that twins born earlier than expected date of delivery have as healthy and normal lives as full term babies. In case there are few hiccups along the way, hold on to your faith and trust your team of doctors. They will be doing their best for you and your babies. If the date gets extended by a couple of more weeks, then you deserve a lovely bouquet that will not cause you any allergies!
As you hug your twins, remember to congratulate them too for having been your constant delight despite remaining confined to the limited space that your uterus provided!!!
