Hello! I delivered twin girls 6 weeks ago via c-section at 38 weeks. I had to be induced due to pre-eclampsia. I started labor at 2 cm and then got pitocin and over the course of 16 hours progressed to 8 cm and one of my daughters got "stuck" in my pelvis. However, my OB told me she was "sunnyside" up so that could have been the reason things stalled. Then I developed a fever, so, I had to have a c-section.
I went for my postpartum visit today and asked if I would need to have a c section for future pregnancies and my OB said probably. He said since my girls were only 5.5 lbs and got "stuck" it's likely to happen again, especially since the baby will likely be bigger. I really want to have a vaginal delivery so I've been researching and it seems that I may be able to have a vaginal birth even if this was the reason I had to have a c section to begin with. I think my OB would let me try it.
Just curious if anyone else was successful in this situation? We aren't even thinking of TTC soon, I'm just trying to prepare myself. Also, I think I'm still really bothered by the fact that I had a c-section. My physical recovery was so easy, but I didn't realize it would be harder on me emotionally!
