Yes, the spinal and epidural are different. I don't remember exactly how they are different, but as the patient you really don't feel any difference. I had the spinal for my c-section, and with the twins I had to have the epidural placed but didn't have to have meds in it...they just wanted it available in case they had to do an emergency c-section. It was basically the same procedure to insert them both in your back.

Yes, the twins were a VBAC. I got lucky that one of the OBs on call when I delivered was very pro-VBAC and encouraged me to go for it. I was 33w1d at delivery...George was 4lbs12oz and Abigail was 4lbs7oz.

I hope that whatever kind of birth you have, it goes smoothly for you and the babies!
