How many of you who wanted to have a natural labor/birth were unable to do that because of the twins? I already have one singleton naturally (no drugs) and I don't like the idea of not having a better experience with this pregnancy. Was an epidural mandatory, or could you choose not to. Did you deliver vaginally, or opt for the c-section? If you delivered vaginally, were you able to push them out no problem, or did something happen? What went wrong that made it so you had to have a c-section?Answer Question

I had no desire to deliver naturally, but I did deliver both vaginally with only 2 pushes for the first and one push for the second at 37w5d. I had an epidural, but it didn't take, so I delivered without pain meds, with baby A face up, so I was in pretty excruciating pain. They don't make you have an epidural, but most will make you have an IV and make you deliver in the operating room just in case.
Like the PP said, check out the Moms of Twins groups. We have some great ladies in there, that are willing to share their stories with you.
