I'll post an abbreviated birth story, with a longer one following. It was fast and furious. My water broke at 3 pm and started leaking. Rushes did not start until 5 pm. At 6:30 they were 7-10 min apart. At 8pm they were 5 min apart, and by 9:30 they were 3 min apart. I finally decided the midwives should come, and they were there by 10 pm. I went to the bathroom and there was blood. I was allowed to get into my birth pool then they got worried because I was still...
Me too! Peeing alot, barely sleeping, I'm grumpy, my husband is grumpy (and smoking more than normal) Glad I'm not the only one feeling sorry for myself for no good reason.
Totally amazing! You almost never hear of carrying twins to term! Congratulations to you for a homebirth and Welcome to your beautiful boys!!
Relax Momma!! Let your body do what's it's got to do!! I might go lay down and see if that brings them on again since that's what happened last night.
We are like a light bomb of hormones right now. My DH same thing. I'm trying to cut him some slack, but we talked about it and he made the point that even though mood swings at this point are normal, he's cutting me slack. So he's doing the best to keep me happy, and I should give him a break too. Other wise we'll both be miserable. Sorry, I don't have advice but I can sympathize.

Mentioned this to my MW, and she said it's only for softening a rigid cervix. And in "Herbal for the Childbearing Year" says the same. So, yeah if your soft then don't worry about doing it.

I'm thinking sex and exercise. Maybe you could start having more sex and doing frequent fast-paced walks- maybe even some lunges or climbing...
Personally I hated being "checked" first pregnancy, and I am asking not the be checked this time. When it's time, it's time. Every time I got checked the first time, it made me really uncomfortable and crampy, and bleeding and I don't think it really speed anything up, it just made me more uncomfortable. It's all normal though. Good luck!
