emergency C at 31.6 weeks due to fetal distress

but would have been a planned C due to maternal health issues- I was aware that I would have to do a C before I even got pregnant.

Unfortunately for me, BOTH twins remained in a stubborn transverse lie.
I tried, light, heat, music and even moxibustion therapies to turn them.
After 3 days of labour, I took myself to hospital where I had an emergency caesarean section.

I planned a home birth, so coming to terms with having another caesarean broke my heart.
Still hurts now.

May I ask what health condition you have?

I have a bleeding disorder & high barely controlled blood pressure that made a natural delivery too 'uncontrolled', as well as a previous cervical surgery that left scar tissue that made put me at high risk for rupture were I to deliver naturally. The combination of all those things a few others made me a non-candidate for any kind of delivery but C.

One of my twinkies decided to take in into her own hands though, and the C was needed to get her out due to fetal distress (cord compression and decels that did not respond to medical/positional or any other treatment)

I was taken care of prenatally and delivery by a Perinatalogist. My OB-GYN would not take me on as a 'pregnancy' client due to my unique situation. I was high risk before I even conceived! I knew it going into pregnancy though, so I was able to prepare for 'what could' and what would happen.

I was 39.6 weeks

Both vaginal. A was vertex, B was a foot-first breech -- and he came out that way. I was induced at 34w due to Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome.

Both vaginal with no medication at 35.5. My OB is known in my area for doing vaginal twin deliveries which is why I went with her. She wanted me to have an epidural catheter placed just in case but on the day I went into labor I had a feeling everything was going to be fine so I refused it and as luck would have it her favorite anesthesiologist was on call so she said okay. Baby A had been head down for a while and came without a problem. Baby B was transverse so my OB reached up in me (didn't bother me one bit as I just looked at my first baby and that was all I needed) found baby B's head, brought it down, broke her water and she was out a few pushes later. All in all exactly what I had been hoping/praying/wishing for

Wow, you really have been through it all haven't you :( xxxxx

I only asked why because I'm interested about medical conditions and how it affects birth, Congrads xxx

Both vaginal.  Unmedicated at 41w5d.

 

Failed induction prior, which was really hellish and set me up for trouble going into real labor.  Actual delivery was lovely (ish).

 

The induction was at 41 weeks.  I lied to my care provider about dates once I learned they were twins because I'd heard too many stories about pushing twin moms to give birth too early.

All babies born vaginally.
