I loved your story!

During my last few labors, I also always felt that my contractions were not close enough, strong enough, etc... BUT it always turned out to be a "productive" labor. I also came to realize that my contractions would be irregular (in timing) but I would have one less strong one, then a long break, then a very strong and hard contraction! I remember thinking during my last birth "oh no, not a long break! that means the next one is going to HURT!"

Congratulations, Mama. You must be in heaven with those two babies! I can't imagine!!

Oh congrats! I am loving the pic of the girls touching noses! And I think the picture of Miriam borin the the caul is AMAZING! I think it is one of the best birth pictures I have seen- with the fluid in mid air and you and your husband both touching her- it is amazing!!!

What an awesome story! My Mom-Mom and her sister were identical twins and also had their own amniotic sacs. The older one was born in her sac.

I thought the looked identical in the 3 day picture. Too cute!!

that's a wonderful story! Thanks so much for sharing it. While the thought of twins scares me terribly the birth sounds wonderful.

Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?

I just had to post. I saw the link in your siggie in another thread.

I always figured twins these days are delivered via c-section. What a wonderful story of you having an unassisted birth with twins! I enjoyed reading. My grandmother had two sets of twins many years ago and no epidural back then. I imagine she went through something similar.

The caul pic is my most favorite of all the twin birth pics. And we almost didn't get it. My friend was taking pictures, had never seen a real birth, didn't know what to take and not to take pictures of and I just told her to do whatever. The flash only worked during 60% of those key moments and this one we just totally got lucky with!
