Dear Wan
That is almost impossible to say, since the babies will arrive when there are not enough space for them. Some of them stay inside up to 38 weeks, so anything is possible.

Hi wan,

I have friends with twins that went full term and friends who had their twins very early. I think it depends on the pregnancy as even with normal single pregnancies circumstances differ. Multiple babies make the pregnancy more risky but I don' t think there is any specific norm for giving birth.

Personaly I think you should try to relax and enjoy your pregnancy, before you know it it is over and you have your babies in your arms. Remember that more babies born prematurely survive now than year before. The yougest baby ever born and survided was only 21.5 weeks
