Second Labour?

I gave birth to a baby on 29th of February and got pregnant quite soon afterwards and am due 12th February with twins. Is it likely that it will be very different from my first labour? Not just because it's twins, but because it is so soon as well. But also if anyone has any personal experience with giving birth to twins. Please help, thanks.

  • I don't have any twin experience, but I got prego when DS was 9mo. My first labor was 11.5 hours and my second was 3 hours. It was a breeze!!! Good luck and I hope your labor is as quick as mine was!!

  • I had my daughter she was 4 hours 20 minutes and my son 15 months later (she was 5 months old when I got pg) My son was 6 hours and was a lot easier. Not because of anything other than I was a lot more prepared for birth with my son than with my daughter. I really managed it a lot better and enjoyed it a lot more. I have a three vaginal natural births in my e-book that are really good reads. I think you will do great. Just stay focused on the end result. Two beautiful healthy babies who came out easily and peacefully. hth
