Mine were born about 5 1/2 hours apart! Furie was a natural birth, and Fenix came via c-section because she wouldn't descend at all and the drs. feared infection, so...A couple of hours after Furie was born the drs and nurses started disappearing, and one of the obs said he had never seen so much time between twin births before. If only he knew...
3 minutes- 0303 and 0306. homebirth labor turned transfer hospital c-section. double footling breech- the resident tried to pull two feet out until she realized they belonged to two seperate babies and had to put one leg back in and find a match for the other. she got DS, but DD got freaked out by that and pulled her legs up high, so it took a little effort to get her out next. hence 3 min vs. like 1 min.
Mine were 12 minutes apart and a home waterbirth. Baby A was head first but LOP so pushing him out was a bit hard, but baby B shot out. He must have got a slight shock and breathed in some fluids, as he didn't breath on his own right away my midwife had to breath into his mouth to get him started.
17 minutes. . . A vertex, B a double-footling breech (born without intervention).
I think, though, that it was more like 10 minutes. The hospital recorded Twin B as 4:27am. But our photos of the birth show us smiling and holding both babies at 4:25am (by the big clock above the hospital bed) and I know they were fooling around with Twin B for a few very long minutes after he was born.
My girls, born vaginally, were 2 minutes apart and so were my boy/girl twins who were delivered via c-section. I thought it was interesting that even though they were delivered differently, both sets were still two minutes apart.
