Wow, TWINS! Congratulations! I have only had singles, and both my labors were very different. Are you planning to try to have them vaginally? I would definately recommend it based on the fact that the more natural you TRY to have your birth the less complications you might have. Twins though... youch. The best advice I can give you is to do a lot of reasearch. The more you know the less scary it can be. Go through all your options with your doctor and make a plan. You birth will probably NOT go by plan, but it makes you feel better if you have some sense of control over the situation.
It hurts... a lot. BUT that's why they make epdiurals. However, epidurals can slow your labor and cause complications, so again, talk to your doctor about it. I can give you a play by play if you want, but that's too long to post here! : )
