Are you sure it was 49 weeks? Full term just carrying a single baby is 40 weeks and generally you get induced if you have gone a week or so past your due date. With Twins I'd say its pretty unlikely. I'm sure its happened, maybe? but I'd say bad math was involved.
yeah...i agree with LiseK. A lot of women that are pregnant with multiples cannot even make it to 40 weeks...and at 49 weeks? after awhile it would be hard for the woman to breathe. the babies would be taking up so much room at that point...maybe you meant 39 weeks? it is great if multiples make it past 36 or 37 weeks, because by then their lungs are fully developed. i thought they would induce if it was longer than 42 weeks.
