In brief: Bad idea

You should sit at the edge of a chair and stay upright to help your lungs - this is difficult understandably.
The best thing you can do for your twins is to keep them inside as long as possible. Studies recently have shown that each week after 36 is beneficial to brain and lung maturity. Get a cheerleader and a breathing partner. This is exhausting work especially in the summer.
