Were your twins vag, c-sec, or both
Just sheer curiosity - Please do not criticize decisions made by others. We can't change the past.:

My baby A was vab, baby B was double footling (so emergency C-Section).

My ob was pushing for a vbac with my twins. However hospital policy was baby A had to be head down and mine was not. My ob swore the baby would change positions as we neared the due date but our placenta started to tear again and baby A hadn't moved before they had to be delivered.

Mine were both born vaginally. Baby B was breach, but my OB turned her after Baby A was born

My twins were delivered via scheduled csection. Baby A was breech with her feet on my cervix and my OB was worried that if I went into labor and tried for a vaginal birth that the cord could wrap around her neck, so out of safety for us all, I went for the csection.

Mine weren't delivered, I gave birth to them vaginally

Vaginally. Twin A was vertex, Twin B double footling breech extraction.

I had my twins by planned cesarean, because I had cholestasis. I probably would have had a section anyway, though, because I couldn't find a provider willing to help me VBAC with twins.

C-section. :

I don't remember the official terms for this, but Baby A was feet down on my cervix (like standing up) and Baby B was sideways with her head in his stomach. Both of them had cords dangling down around Baby A's feet.

Both vag with a little help from a vacuum.

Me too. I was hoping to be induced and go vaginally, but my son was planted butt first and refused to move. We had to deliver (via c/s) at 37 wks 4 days. We SO would have lasted 40+ wks had we not had issues with my health. This was very disapointing after had 4 vaginal deliveries already. I'm still trying to make peace with myself and my body after the c/s.

C-section done on an urgent basis for worsening pre-eclampsia. I had problems with this pregnancy starting in week 15 and spent most of the last 2 months in the hospital. At that point, I was just happy to have two live twins, regardless of the method of delivery.

C-section for both. Baby A was sunny side up/head down and Baby B was breach. I wouldn't dilate any more than 4 cm and my blood pressure was too high, so c-section.

C-section for me, too.
Twin A, aka Phoebe, was transverse and Twin B, Fiona, was vertex. They were both vertex until about 2 months before they were born. I was so disappointed.
We had a date scheduled for the surgery at 38-1/2 weeks, but I developed pre-eclampsia and went into labor at 37-weeks on the dot so out they came.
Phoebe was pulled out first. Fiona popped her own head out of the incision and screamed. They said, "We've never seen that before." That kind of cracks me up.

I feel for you mamas who had cholestasis. I had severe itching my last two months & for my first 4 months PP & it was awful. I can't imagine how bad cholestasis must have been.

both vag - baby a head down, baby b footling breech!
post #15 of 98
C-sec. HBAC transfer, though. Baby A was breech and wouldn't descend no matter what we did : At least I tried, I guess!

What is it with twins- ha! My Willow came FLYING out of my incision- the OB said it was the only baby she'd ever seen deliver itself
post #17 of 98
ok now i'm scared. I'm naming my girls Willow and Fiona... and now i'm getting visions of my twins flying out of my tummy. LOL!
post #18 of 98
I gave birth to mine vaginally.
post #19 of 98
Both of mine were head down pretty early & stayed there so we were lucky enough to have a fairly uneventful delievery, except Rena (twin B) had to be pulled out w/ a vacuum b/c she was in major distress.

That's funny -- that's what I say Fiona did, too.
