I guess I just don't understand. What I know now, I wish I would've known then b/c I probably would have tried to wait a little longer before going along with an induction. Granted my labor was only 4 hours and I only pushed for 10 minutes, I still wish I would have waited longer.

Did you do a home birth or something? That's scary!!
I had been having contractions on and off for a few days... and then my water broke. My contractions stopped so I had to be induced as it had already been about 10 hours since my water broke. 30 hours later I still wasn't progressing... but by some magic within an hour I went from a 6 to a 10. THANK GOD. Still had a horrible infection though. It was worse than labor and delivery. They say giving birth is the worst pain ever? BAHAHAHA... lies.

Mine is for medical reasons for both me and the two babies I am carrying. I talked to doctors to keep from being induced at 36 weeks but have been monitored more closely because I am trying to go to 37 weeks. I am carrying mo/di twins.

I don't know. I think it's ridiculous. These silly girls obviously don't know how lucky they are to be able to carry to term. Just because a baby is term and should be ready, doesn't mean they will be. I had Lola at 39 weeks and she spent 5 days in the NICU. You just never know what can happen. Some of these girls are incredibly ignorant to the possible consequences. Or maybe they're just stupid. *Shrugs*

One sac of water with a split membrane. Another way to explain it is they have a connecting door to each other. TTTTS is higher for them and since they share a placenta the placenta can break down faster after 36 weeks. They are identical twins.
