Okay I've watched it like six times now and sent it to everyone I've ever met.

I just stare at all the 38, 39w bellies and think, Damn, I was tiny compared to that!

I know... I made it to just over 38 weeks, and then I see Lisa and Sara and Kathryn's bellies, and it just makes me feel like a wienie for how miserable I was at the end!

Also, some of those babies make my 7 pounders look like PIPSQUEAKS.

I couldn't believe how big so many of those twins were! Everyone told me that mine were so large for twins at 6lb8oz and 6lb14oz, but they are small compared to those other twins!

Off to send elsewhere!

Update:

1) I sent the link yesterday to the lady who runs www.givingbirthnaturally.com (she has a VERY popular online CBE program, a great web site, and I've had over 9000 hits to my birth video from her site alone since she put a link on her site). Anyway, she's going to put a link on her site!

2) I also just got an email from the Communications Coordinator for The Big Push campaign (the national campaign to legalize midwifery in every state). She asked permission to post it on their clips and pics page (http://www.thebigpushformidwives.org/clips.pix.aspx). Of course I said yes!

So, it will be up in a few high-profile places soon.

Beautifully done, mama! I just happened upon your post in New Posts, and I have to say that I am utterly inspired. SHould I be pregnant again, I may actually hope for twins...so empowering!

you should send it to some of the other birth related advocacy sites too. bet lots of them would love to pick it up.

you're over 2,000 views already! that's got to feel awesome.

i forwarded it through the birth community here and got an email back from a midwife who had her twins at home unassisted 26 years ago! she said it was beautiful and that she would pass it on!

Like the new sig, 1sttimemummy...

What are some of the sites to send it to? You know, anyone here can pass it along if you have any connections. I've googled a little, and it's already working through the birth blogosphere a bit, which is cool!

I forwarded it to everyone I know, including my local MOM's club. I did put in a terminology guide in my email though b/c I know lots of people will not know what the abbreviations mean (like my mom didn't know VBAC/HBAC and even my own dh didn't know TTTS, IUGR, and something else which I don't remember now). Something to consider when sending to your average lay person.
