2+twins, it is actually illegal in this state for a midwife to attend a homebirth of a high risk pg like twins, and I just can't ask my mw to jeopardize her license for me. I am working on the water consumption - a gallon is ton for me, but I am doing my best. My water bottle is never far from my side, and dd will hand me the bottle from time to time and remind me that the babies are thirsty!
Dina, cool name! I am inspired by your story. Giving birth to healthy babies that do not need a NICU stay is the biggest thing for me in this pg (dd had severe meconium aspiration and spent two weeks in the NICU. I do NOT want to go back there). Although a vag. delivery would be ideal, if it takes a c-section to get there, so be it. ITA that the babies' health is the number one priority.
Dina, can I ask how petite you are? I am just 5 foot, and I have been somewhat concerned that twins will run out of room. Dd was only 6.5 lbs, and I was pretty durned big by nine months with her!
