    Default Jessica and Jack's Birth (Hold on mum)

    Wed 25 oct 2pm went for growth scan both growing nicely both still breech and running out of room to turn Jessica had her bottom in my pelvis, I tell myself that I'm going to end up having a c section I was hoping for a vaginal birth.
    4pm start to get some pains low in my back and lower tummy I tell myself it's only braxton hicks, have a lay down for 30 mins pains don't go away so off to the shower I go 20mins later pains are still there, It's time to head for the hospital so I put a few things in a bag (hadn't got around to packing my bag yet)
    Got to the hospital 6pm lucky my Dr was there, he said that I was 3cm dialated and my waters were bulging that we had to try and stop it and I would be going to Perth, so they gave me adrenalin shot to mature the bubs lungs and put in a drip x 2.
    9pm labour is brought to a stand still flew to perth with the RFDS I'm so glad DH is with me as I have never been on a plane before. ( a bit scary )
    11pm arive at King edward memorial hospital get poked and proded for the next five hours then manage to get some sleep.

    Thurs 26th Oct 6.30am contractions start again this time more intense I start to get a bit emotional as the midwife tells me that I'm still 3cms and they try to hold off for 48hours for the lungs to mature I know this labour won't go that long and so start to feel like everything is out of my control.
    8.30am the Dr comes to see me and I'm 6cm so everything starts to move very quickly I'm preped for a c section as both the babies are still breech, The Dr asks if I want to try a vaginal delivery but the pain and fear are staring to win out and I ask for a c section.
    9.50am get to theatre and once I had the epidural I start to feel better the DR does another check and i'm 10cm so she asks again if I want to try a vaginal delivery I can't feel the pain so give it a go at 10.05am Jessica makes her way into the world feet first Wieghing in at 4 pound 13 0z 2180 grams five minutes later at 10.10am Jack not to be out done also enters the world feet first whieghing in at 5 pound five oz 2410 grams.
    No tears no stiches I think because my body was so relaxed better than the last two labours.

    WOW Jean, thank you so much for sharing your story with us. Good on you for birthing your twins.

    Sounds like they were a pretty good size too being 33 week twins.

    That is an amazing birth story!

    King Eddy has great doctors. When I went in with contractions at 27 and 28 weeks they were all encouraging me to deliver vaginally! You have been very lucky!!! I ended up having a c-section.

    Thankyou all for your comments I'm happy that I was able to share my experiance with you all, I think we are all super mums the hard bit starts when we get them home.
    I hope you let all the expectant mums know that breach births are possible very scary my biggest fear was that they were going to get stuck.
