Yay! Water broke around 7:15.. Feeling a bit crampy and some back pain but nothing serious. Filling up the birth pool at the moment. Tried to rest but i can't! Every time i lay down i feel like i'm starving and run to the kitchen... I have no idea why! I want these babies to hurry up and decide its time to come out.

Oh I'm so happy for you!!!! As far as the body goes, I was caught off guard as well. I actually had my CNM write a prescription for a pain killer (which I never got, but seriously thought about)! Be very gentle with yourself, and it will pass soon.

Wonderful news!!!!!! Welcome babies!!!

YES!! those afterpains are somethin' else!! Mine lasted a good 5 days (the ones where you actually have to blow through to handle the pain). The other thing that caught me off gaurd was when I first stood up (after birth)-- I could NOT breathe, my organs were all over the place! One of the midwives lifted my belly where it should be and all of a sudden I could breathe again......I am still wearing a support belt to hold me in and it has been a week since my sweet babies' birth.

Again-- good job mama!!

DS-10, DS-8, DS-5 and B/G twins- born 5/08 all lovingly born

I felt like I was recovering more from the pregnancy than the birth, honestly! That first 10 days was the hardest. I'm feeling 'normal' again (normal as a moo-cow to twins can feel) at 3 weeks post!

Congrats!
