i heard a pretty good birth story tonight

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
A woman I know from one of our toddler classes was due with twin boys the first week of november, like the 6th I think.
I saw her dh tonight and asked about her and the boys, and he told me they were born 2 and a half weeks ago.
I was concerned about her having to endure a c-section, because she had placenta previa early on, and they were talking c/s back in august, but both were born vaginally!!
And she's nursing both of them. She had told me she would, but you never know how things will turn out.
Anyway, except for the fact that they induced at 39 weeks it sounded like a pretty good birth. They were born 4 minutes apart, just 3 hours after inducing. They were tiny, 4 and 5 pounds. I can't understand why a doctor would propose inducing with twins, I thought you tried to keep your multiples cooking as long as possible.
Anyway, I knew this was the only place people would understand my delight in hearing of a vaginal birth! :LOL

A woman in my prenatal yoga class gave birth to twins vaginally the day after my vbac. Yay for both of us! We were at the same hospital, but, when I asked the nurse before we left if anyone had had twin boys recently, she didn't know, so I didn't see them.
