Mrs. A Posted March 5, 2012 Share Posted March 5, 2012 (edited) There is a possibility that I am currently preggo with twins. I am supposed to have an ultrasound in a couple weeks to find out for sure. So even though I don't know for sure yet, I would like to start thinking about what it means to be pregnant with twins. (and to be honest, i am very interested in the subject for its own sake, even if it turns out that it's not twins) How is different from a singleton pregnancy? I know that typically twins are classed as high risk, but I'd like to know why? I am a natural childbirth-er and would like to do that again. I did not want an early ultrasound, and am even still slightly tempted to refuse this one, but I know I would probably catch heck for that from my midwife (she is very not crunchy and is not cool about skipping routine procedures). So if those of you who have had twins could please talk to me about what it means during pregnancy - especially with regards to natural/unnecessary-intervention-free birth I would really appreciate it. Thank you!! ETA: I forgot to mention that while I've given birth naturally for my previous three births, they were all in a hospital and as much as I would LOVE to have a home birth, it's just not an option right now for various reasons, so I will be dealing with hospitals and doctors and their policies.
