Trying to wrap my brain around this twin birth thing - Page 2

post #21 of 22
Well I just birthed my twins on 10-17! (a natural vbac) It was definately hard but I would do it again in a second....

I was full term so we did not have NICU (just a nursery nurse), my labor nurse, my midwife, and my OB. I was able to stay in my room

Baby A was harder to push out. But once she got to a certain point, I just couldnt stop myself. Once A came out, they put her on me. I snuggled with her while I was told to ignore everything below. I know I had some extra bleeding so my OB explored my scar.

Then Baby B who was vertex turned to transverse. They turned her to vertex but she had a hand by her head. They had to push that out of the way. Then B came flying out. I didnt push long with B. I did hand off A to my husband for a bit bc it was too much to push and hold the baby.

They did have a 25 minute interval between the two. Then the placenta which took its grand old time coming out. I dont know exactly how long, but it was def a while!!

I was really so much in my own world during the birth.

I had mine at home since we were full term and everyone was healthy. Baby A had stayed vertex the whole time. Baby B was rolling up until the last minute, so she ended up being born breech.

They were 15 minutes apart. I held A for just a few minutes and got started nursing before MW got nervous because she couldn't find B's heartbeat. She was about to give me a shot of pit when B slid right out. She was smaller than A (A was 8lb 1oz, B was 6lb 5oz), so I hardly felt anything with B.

Then I got to hold B and nurse her for just a few minutes before my BP plummetted. I don't remember who ended up holding babies while they worked on getting me stabilized. That lasted for about 15 minutes. Then I got to have both babies.

My brain was operating in some other zone, so I don't really remember the details clearly. But we came out of it happy and healthy.
