Congrats!! I also had twin girls and I had a c-section (after a vaginal with my 4 year old) and it was so much better for me!

Sorry, I don't know much about the short cervix, just that you have to be ready to get to the hospital quickly!

I don't think everyone having twins should have a C section. There are plenty of twin deliveries that happen naturally, do not go on for days, or take a long time to recover from. Everyone is different.

Just a c-section note. I had my girls that way and I loved it. There was no long labor. I was not nearly as sore as my friend that had her twins vaginally said she was. I was up moving the next morning and I actually went home a day early. I also was not nearly as worn out, as I would assume you would be after labor. I truly enjoyed the fact that from beginning to end it took about 30 minutes and my girls were both born in the same minute (which I think is pretty cool). I was lucky to have a doctor who let me make the decision even though both of my girls were head down and ready to go. In the end he said he was glad I opted for the section too because I was having contractions for a good month but I never dialated more than 1 centimeter. I loved my section, and I think everyone with multiples should have one.

thank you! well...hmmm. a part of me would like to have them naturally but a lot of people say that with twins you have to have them c-section. I have been on bed rest for a couple months now, and i just got out of the hospital actually after being there for a week. I had a fever of like 105 or more and have a kidney infection now, which sucks, but i'm back home now and drs. are thinking that i will deliver in the next 2-3 weeks. that is like 2 months before my due date. did you go early w/ your girls?

Firstly big congrats are in order. I have identical twins girls, they are now 3. I actually can't help you with this, as I apparently have a really looong cervix (the longest my doctor reckons he has seen). I did try and have them naturally, even though they were both head down and engaged. But ended up having a emergency c-section after a long labour, as the first twin decided to go back up the birth canal, so maybe having a long cervix didn't help me. I am not sure about the U.S. but here in Australia many of the doctors prefer you to have a c-section with twins and definately with higher order multiples. But I am in no way a doctor, so chat to your medical professionals about your concerns, and what are the options for birthing (which is what I am assuming you are enquiring about). Are you wanting to have your babies naturally?
