So, my DH is an identical twin, so I decided to sit MIL down and grill her about being pregnant with twins and having twins. I already knew that she didn't have a c-section, but I wanted all the other dirt. And she told me that, among other things, she had a totally natural birth! I knew she had done natural with her other three kids, but wasn't sure if she had with the twins.

It just reassures me that I can have the birth I want anytime I've heard another woman did it. Especially when it's someone I know personally like my MIL.

Very cool! It is nice to know someone in person who has BTDT!

When they persisted in questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "Let the person among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her." John 8:7
