I am 37 weeks with twins. Unexpectedly, they are now BOTH vertex (this was not true earlier), and they are also both doing well--growing, good blood flow, etc.
I also feel pretty good, considering I'm this far along with twins!
So here's my question: my doctor likes to deliver twins at 37-38 weeks; she had previously planned a c-section for December 1, when the babies were in weird positions and it looked like a c-sec would be "necessary"...I don't want to get into a discussion of her definition of necessary here...My question is about how to deal with having a natural delivery in these circumstances. I bet she's going to want to induce by December 1, if nothing is happening, and I know there can be major problems with induced labor.
Can someone help with how, exactly, to talk with my doctor. We are on good terms; i have really tried to keep a good, friendly relationship with her. Her philosophies about pregnancy and taking care of myself are quite good, and she has listened to me a lot throughout the pregnancy, which is why I've stayed with her. BUT her ideas about delivery are really medical/surgical. I need help with how to talk with her without ruining a decent relationship.
I know I can deliver these babies naturally, and I feel so excited about the idea of sharing this experience with my DH and my mom, but I don't want to antagonize this doctor whom I really like and who has been available and open with me all along.
