I was just thinking about this b/c, unfortunately, I had a c/s w/ds and in another year or so (yikes!), we'll be ttc #2, and since twins run fairly heavily in my family, and since I'll be an
"older" mama by then, I know the chance of twins reasonably exists. So, due to the increased stretching of the uterus w/a twin pregnancy, is the chance of uterine rupture higher? Is a VBAC even safely possible (if no interventions utilized)?

Your only problem w/ twins is going to be getting them both head down, or finding a DR that is willing to deliver if just baby B is breech. I recently read somewhere that 50% of twins are both head down, 40% of twins have just 1 head down, and the other 10% are everything else. Those are fairly good odds. I'm actually surprised at the # of people who feel they HAVE to have c/s just b/c they have twins. Good luck!
