VBA2C with Twins?

Hello experienced mama's of multiples! I will give a brief background as I ask for your experiences and advice!

I had 2 babies vaginally. I then had a c-section for transverse lie. Then I had a "forced" unnecessary section due to hospital VBAC ban, and I was ignorant of any other options, basically.

Then I really became educated, had major heart/head changes and went "all natural" with our lifestyle and health choices. I then had a natural VBA2C with a great OB in a hospital I found via ICAN. The baby was 8 lbs 10 oz. My next VBA2C was a homebirth of a 10 lbs 9 oz baby boy at 42 weeks. Then I have had 2 more natural VBA2C's with my OB (long story why I don't have a homebirth again..I can fill you in if you desire) 8 lbs 11 oz, 9 lbs 12 oz.

My OB is incredibly VBAC supportive (that's why I travel an hour to see him and have a birth at that awesome hospital), and vaginal twin birth promoting. He told me today that he is somewhat concerned about the lower uterine segment being very stretched in a twin pregnancy and then laboring. He said ultimately, like always, it's my decision and he will support me.

What do you ladies think? I measured 44 weeks with my almost 11 lb baby, so he says I certainly can carry large baby(s) in my uterus and then labor...

Right now I am thinking I will go with the vaginal birth attempt, once again...but, I don't want to be naive or selfish with that choice if it truly isn't the safest choice for my history. I just cannot imagine scheduling a surgical birth if baby A is head down..can't fathom it.

I suppose I do feel a bit of doubt/worry, as one of my dear friends lost twin B and her uterus in a twin vaginal birth at home a few years ago..it is still with me, because it is still with her

Thanks so much for your input!
