This is my 3rd pregnancy and I am having twins.... my other two (not twins) were delivered vaginally and everything went fine. But I know that there is a lot higher risk of c-section with a twin delivery and it scares me to death! I have never had ANY kind of surgery in my entire life and I honestly don't think I could handle a c-section... they would have to put me completely OUT because I would probably have an anxiety attack! LoL.
Anyway, I am only 8 weeks along right now ... but they will have to come out eventually and I can't stop worrying about it!
So, my question is ... how many of you have delivered twins and how did it go? Did you have complications that required c-section or did it go smoothly with a vaginal delivery???? I just want to know what other women have experienced so that maybe I can calm down and stop worrying so much! LoL.
My twins were born at 37 weeks via c-section because they were both breech (no other complications). I was like you with a previous vaginal delivery and extreme anxiety about the c-section. From my experience i can tell you I was still talking to my doctor about the possibility of a vaginal with the twins at 34 weeks if they would turn, but by 36 weeks I really didn't care how they came out so long as they got out safely. The c-section and recovery weren't nearly as bad as I had imagined, though they did have to give me something for anxiety when I was in the recovery room because not being able to move or feel my legs really freaked me out (My 1st was natural, so I'd never even had an epidural). At this point you have plenty of time to research and prepare yourself for whatever happens. Join a group on CM for twin moms! Congrats & GL!
