Wow how this forum has changed! I went into the hospital to have the twins and when i came back home and got some free time i logged on to discover everything had changed. It took me a while to figure it out and then a while longer to find this board.

I had my twins on my birthday- february 22nd. It went well and i was able to deliver them without having a c-section. Kelsey was born at 6:25 and her sister was born at 8:34, a whole two hours and nine minutes later. They are great babies and really make it easy to manage all the house work, them and my other two kids. I am aware that this all will more than likely change lol but for now i am just taking it one day at a time. My older kids are great with them and so far they haven't shown any signs of jealousy but again that could change.

I do have a question, for those of you who have had their tubes tied what was the recovery like? I am considering getting mine done if hubby does not get snipped but i'm wondering if i will be sore or not. I had the option to get it done while still in the hospital but opted not to since i had just delivered the twins and didn't want to have to go without food or water for another twelve hours lol.

Congratulations on the birth of your beautiful girls. I wish you much joy and happiness in the years to come.

I didn't have my tubes tied; my husband was snipped, so I can't answer your question. However, I will say that tubes tied means sedation and an operation for you. Snipping is done in the doctor's office and means your husband lies on the couch for 1/2 a day. I opt snipping!
MrsWhiteCastle responded:

Your hubby getting snipped is the MUCH easier option. He'll be out for a day or two, and that's it. DH couldn't get snipped, so I had to do the tubal. It's an operation, and you will be quite sore for a couple of days. I also had restrictions for 2 weeks. I couldn't lift anything over 10 pounds for 2 weeks, and I couldn't drive during that time. That is pretty hard to do when you have 1 LO, let alone 2!

"lies on the couch for 1/2 a day" ha! My DH laid on the couch for 2 WEEKS--really milked it--you would have thought he had open heart surgery or something it was pathetic!
Louise_WebMD_Staff responded:
I would highly encourage the husband snipping thing. I know women who have gotten their tubes tied and never looked back but I also know some tubal ligation horror stories.

The procedure for men is so much safer, easier, and better.
