Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Well, usually it's quicker and easier to get through labor after you've had a few kids. My aunt had three sets of twins and a total of twelve children. She said by the time 11 and 12 came along, she and her older kids were so used to it and it was so quick that she literally woke her oldest two - one to take her to the hospital and one to watch the others - grabbed her bag and got to the hospital right before she crowned with twin A. Within three hours it was over and the docs were massaging her uterus to get it to clamp down (the more kids you have the lazier the uterus gets). My uncle didn't even have time to get there for the birth, and he works 30 minutes outside of the town they live in.
wow thanks !
