Lovehomebirth, are you planning a homebirth with your twins? I just had a great home waterbirth with the twins if you have any questions. Congratulations!

Yep, and hopefully another waterbirth too! Can't wait!!! I had a super fast labor with my last dc (90 min start to finish) so I plan on having the tub filled with fresh water that I'll change out every couple of days so it's ready to go. My only real concern is that no one will be there for the birth (as in NOBODY) if it goes real fast and I'll have to put the first baby down on the floor while I birth the second one. For some reason I have these numbers in my head - 12 & 23 (had them in my head since before I knew there were 2 babies) and I believe it means that the first will be born in 12 min & the second in 23. Yikes!

Wow, you have very quick labors!! My twin labor was half the time of my first labor but it was still over 18 hours. My babies were born 1 hour and 1 minute apart, too. Have you seen Mindyleigh's video of her unassisted twin birth? I really want to watch it but I haven't seen it yet. Good luck to you, I am sure you are going to have a wonderful birth.

Yes, I own that one. It's great - I just showed it to my mom the other night and I think it helped ease her fears (since her knowledge of twin births is fear-based).

Where did you buy it? I found it online but it was pretty expensive.

I got it directly from Earth Birth productions: http://earthbirthproductions.com/ind...es/Page584.htm

love_homebirthing - I had my twins at home super fast. I woke up at midnight with super strong super close contrax and had Byron at 1:20am and Miles at 1:35 am. I had them in a pool in the living room that we had filled earlier in the evening (I took castor oil so we figured we would have them that night, I know it is horible stuff & I would never do it again but I was getting desperate to get them out). Filling it up and changing every couple days is a good idea. We covered our with a layer of plastic and then a fluffy down throw and it stayed nice and warm and was the only place I wanted to be. It was so great to have it already filled so I coiuld get right in as soon as I woke up in labor.

Nancymom:

thanks so much for posting those pictures of them stacked. I've been stacking my 10day old twins for a couple of nights now, and it has been a life saver at 2am

They don't like to be swaddled either, and Catherine tries to clobber her bother when she is on the bottom but we are working it all out.
