I went into labour naturally and had a vaginal delivery at 37+1. They also put a clip on twins As head before my epidural but I didn't feel hardly anything! Maybe it's because the head was so far down! As they put the epidural in broke my waters and 20mins later they were both here!
I had a c section as twin a was breech, it was a surreal experience, walking into an operating theatre with about 20 people in there, but not painful. I didn't have a choice due to twin a being breech but would probably have choisen c section as the thought of having one naturally and one by c section really scared me, though I don't now in reality how often that happens.
My recovery was quicker than I thought, but still took a few weeks. Xx
Were you in a lot of pain after your c-section?? My friend just had a c-section and she didn't even need pain killers for more than a couple days and is bouncing around like nothing happened. I am guessing that is not the norm tho.
I wasn't in pain as such, infact I got in trouble for not taking the painkillers I was offered because I wasn't in pain
However it's the fact for the first week or so it's really hard to walk and you can't bend down to pick up your babies and getting in and out of bed is a very slow process. Once your movement gets easier it becomes much easier.
In the end I took the painkillers than help you move without pain for about 2 weeks. I wouldn't say I was bouncing around after that but things were doable after that. xx
I was all prepared to try vaginally if the girls were in a good position but then a girl that lives near me had her twins last week and one was vaginal and one was c-section. That is a big fear of mine. She is wrecked and said she wishes she just went for the c-section. What was your experience with this. I don't even think I will be able to try vaginally bc baby B is constantly moving sideways and head up but if they are both head down I think I may be scared to try vaginally.
Thats my big fear too, at my 28 week scan Baby A was head down and Baby B was head up. The midwife said that if they stay that way the hope would be that once A is out B will then turn round but what if that doesn't happen????? In a strange way I kinda wish that they both end up breech and then the decision is out of my hands.
I read somewhere that only 5% of twin births end up as a vaginal and c-section births.
My vaginal birth was awesome. No stitches or tears, healthy babies with Apgars of 9 and an easy recovery.
Have you given birth before? My OB said that halving a previous successful vaginal birth greatly decreased my chances of needing a c-section.
I also had a great vaginal birth (my birth story is over in the homebirth section. So yes I was terrified to have a section so I chose to give birth at home and I was so worried that if i went to hospital and baby or babies were breech I wouldnt have a choice and would be sectioned. My hb was wonderful and both boys were breech and came out fine no problems at all 6 10 and 6 5 at 38wks no tears or stitches wondeful experience good luck hun
