(No, I'm not pregnant. Just had to get that out of the way first, before anyone starts speculating! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> )<br><br>
Anyone here VBAC after twins? Someone on another board I'm on said that she had a cesarean with twins, and wonders if/how having a distended uterus in a prior pregnancy could affect success in future VBACs. Anyone? My multiples WERE my VBAC, so I'm no help there.

I posted there but I'll post hear too. I measured 60 weeks pregnant when I delivered my twins (the typical distended uterus) but it went down to normal-ish size by my 6 week check up. I was worried about it but my doctor insisted that it is rare for the uterus NOT to go back and it would be a topic of discussion if it hadn't.<br><br>
As for VBAC-ing after twins, it is really common to do so as most twins are c/s. I'm on yet another board (Twins) that a few moms have VBAC-ed on.

This article states that the vbac group after undergoing a csection due to multiples had a higher success rate of delivering vaginally than the control group (previous csection with a singleton). There was also no difference of uterine rupture between the two groups. Here is the title and abstract...<br><a href="http://www.greenjournal.org/cgi/content/abstract/110/4/814" target="_blank">http://www.greenjournal.org/cgi/cont...ract/110/4/814</a>

I had never considered that. "They" just keep coming up with reasons to not do VBACs though <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shake.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shake">
