I've given birth 4 times - single, single, twins, single- and with the last 2 births the placenta wouldn't come out on its own.
After delivering my first set of twins, the doctor was up to her elbow inside me, detaching it manually because it wouldn't come out. Worst pain EVER.
Then the same thing happened with my last baby but this doctor was a little more relaxed and gentle about it. He tugged GENTLY, rubbed and pushed on my belly and gently tugged at the cord until it finally detached. But he was at the point he was considering taking me for SURGERY to get it out! It was scary.
So now I'm expecting twins again and I'm afraid it will happen again since it's happened the last 2 times.
Anyone else have experience with this?
