What is the difference between labor with a multiples and labor with a single baby?

What is the difference between labor with a multiples and labor with a single baby?

More complicated: When the babies are correctly positioned, with the first baby head down, or vertex, rather than breech, they can be delivered vaginally; otherwise a c-section may be required. This usually limits labor to twins. Most concerning is that the uterus starts to contract after delivery of the first infant, which can compromise the placenta of the twin still inside. Should only be done in hospital. ...Read more

So, : So, let me understand you... You were prescribed a walking boot after a broken leg, but didn't use it, and instead began "heavy labor, " and relied on narcotics to essentially mask the pain. And, if i read your question correctly, you were also in a cast which you implied was removed prematurely. You're also active in sports and have a job that is physically demanding, and rather than look to try to find solutions to your problems, would rather live on narcotics and not even attempt to find relief. If i'm reading your question correctly, it sounds like you're going to have a very difficult time finding anyone who would be willing to keep prescribing narcotics for you. Narcotic pain medication certainly plays an important role in helping people in pain while they heal. In some instances, where the pain is terminal or nothing has been able to reduce your pain to a tolerable level, narcotics might then have a purpose. But it sounds like you're not even interested in finding a solution, and would just prefer to live the rest of your life working hard and playing sports, but relying on narcotics to see you through it all. I'm sorry to sound judgmental, but if you're not even willing to try to get better, and deliberately, outright refuse to wear a cast or boot, you can't expect to not suffer the consequences of your own actions. Thus, you will find it exceedingly difficult to find a doctor willing to write you prescriptions for narcotics with no effort on your part to make an attempt to fix the problem that is causing the pain in the first place. ...Read more

Can swallowing cum ripen the cervix or bring on labor compared to evening primrose oil? Which one works better?

See answer : Swallowing cum, no. There have been no scientific studies done that show evening primrose oil serves as a cervical ripener. All of the evidence pointing to the efficacy of evening primrose oil as a cervical dilator is anecdotal in nature. Also, no medical or scientific evidence that shows evening primrose oil to be either safe or unsafe. Best advice is to never attempt to induce labor on your own. ...Read more

Is it a sign of early labor that your fetus will move/kick for 2 minutes straight when it normally doesn't move that often?

No: This is more likely simply a positional change of the baby so that you are feeling the usual movements more intensely. If anything, the baby will move a little less when labor is beginning. ...Read more
