So I went over my birth plan with the doctor at my last appointment. He has seemed very open to me doing things naturally so I didn't foresee any problems.
However when we talked about the IV vs. heplock he said he would want me to have an IV because emergencies are a little more likely with twins. I am not thrilled with this, but I guess if it is best I can make it work?!
He also said that even though he does not mind if I don't want an epidural he wants to have one placed and started just to see if it is in place correctly and then have it cut off. I am VERY nervous about this. For one having an epidural in place and NOT having pain meds does not sound fun to me. Plus I feel like it would be a HUGE temptation to have the meds so readily available. The reason he gave was that because if for some reason they had to do a c-section to get baby B out, who is breech right now, they will not have time to place one.
I wanted to hear thoughts and opinions from you ladies. Are his points valid? Can I refuse these things and should I?
