@breezybee I was also really worried about needing an emergency CS after one came out, because that's exactly what happened to my colleague who had twins this past winter. I had thought that if they did that you'd have to go under general anesthesia (like she did), but I've since learned that as long as you have an epidural they usually don't need to knock you out, so that made me feel better. I want to be awake and alert when my babies are born! I also read in my expecting multiples book that it's actually not that common of a scenario, something like only 5-10% of vaginal twin births end up needing a CS for twin B. Still... it's a big decision to make and recovery seems sooo different for some people versus others!
@leilagphillips Yes, I also had a c-section. My boys were transverse (in a T) almost the whole entire pregnancy, so I was 95% certain we would have a c-section. Mine was not an emergency C section, as they were trying to stop my labor all day and I wasn't pushing/etc, so I did receive a spinal and my SO was able to be in the room. The recovery wasn't too bad. In fact, I have a routine C scheduled for Dec. 8 with this one if he/she doesn't come before then. I do have the option for a vbac and I said if this one comes on it's own I may opt to try it. I'll be honest, the thought of pushing a baby out and tearing horribly scared me more than the c-section! The best advice I can give you is just be flexible. Twins are a whole different ball game, so whatever is best for them and myself is what I wanted. I absolutely did not want to have one vaginally and then need an emergency C. That was my worst case scenario.
