I agree with you. With my first I was 2 weeks over due so they induced me. I ended up having to have a c section and since that one I have not had a natural delivery. This will be my 3rd c section cause my Dr. said it is too risky for a vback

With mono/dio twins they induce early also because this is the time that one can start stealing a royal buttload of nutrients from the other and can cause one twin not to survive or be born with failure to thrive.



Congrats on getting so far with such healthy mono/dio twins

I was induced with my last pregnancy and had a great experience. I was induced at 3:15pm and had her at 8:53pm. Labor was labor and of course it hurt but all in all it was a great experience.

That's funny you say that. MY youngest said mommy theres a baby in there before we found out we were pregnant. Then he said it's a sister and sure enough it has been confermed 4 times it's a girl.

your O2 doesn't drop from pushing. Baby's heart rate drops... due to lack of oxygen crossing the placenta. They only put oxygen on mom when baby is in fetal distress

I know I was holding my breath a bit and I have a tendency to pass out very easily. My daughter wasn't in distress.



ETA: The oxygen was given right after her head came out and was left on for about ten minutes after that. My oxygen level was low, and the doctor who delivered me wasn't comfortable with it.

I was given oxygen right before I needed a c-section (both times). It wasn't me who had the issue, it was my son. My oldest from head compression and my youngest from all sorts of issues that had nothing to do with induction. (infection, placental abruption, etc.)

Not sure how many people on here commenting have had twins BUT I have mine were born naturally at only 36 weeks they were perfectly healthy no steroids no nicu stay one weighed 6 lb 4 oz the other weighed 5 lb 2 oz and they left the hospital three days old they didn't have trouble with nursing or bottle feeding they didbt need apnea monitoring they worst thing was my son needed a bili ruben light for a couple days and once my dr saw I was 90% and at a six I was contracting every 4-6 minutes they gave me pitocin and let me labor as long as I wanted to without any meds or breaking my water my kids were born vaginally after about 38 hours so I think you will be fine I'd you trust your doctor and hospital and you feel like this is best for you then best of luck to you and your sweet babies

Just because yours did t have issues doesn't mean hers won't.

From what I see, it depends on the person and/or situation. I was just responding to someone saying that they only put oxygen on the mom if the baby is in distress, which wasn't true for me and wasn't true for other people I know. I know they give oxygen to the mother if the baby is in distress, but like I said, my daughter was basically fully delivered when they gave me oxygen as a precaution for me because of asthma, having held my breath, my oxygen level being down, etc.
