Taking Bed Rest Poolside @ 33 weeks...

Taken today at 33 weeks 0 days!

Can you say BIG!?!  I'm feelin it now!  I've got almost 8 lbs of baby in me now.  Baby A is measuring a little over 4 lbs and baby B is measuring a little over 3 and a half.  Dr. I did their measurements on Tuesdays appointment (to my great surprise!).  Originally he wasn't going to do them, I thought, until next week Tuesday and also start NST (non-stress test) next week as well, but I have my FIRST NST tomorrow!  I'm looking forward to it!  I can't wait to hear their heartbeats again.  Because I'm having twins, I RARELY get to hear their hearts because they do ultrasounds at every appointment, so there is really no need.  Yes, I am SUPER spoiled because I have had a million u/s, but I still love to listen to their beats.

I have had a lot of new emotions this past week.  Fear, being the big one.  As excited as I am to meet my sons, I am SCARED.  I am SCARED to go into labor, and I am SCARED to have a CSEC.  I think this fear has crept in since my hospital scare and I had to stay the night.  I think the fear is also there because I have NO CONTROL of what will happen.  I will have to rely completely on doctors and nurses to make the best decisions for my babies and myself. 

Ultimately, I know God is in control.  I began praying for the right delivery for my boys and I, as well.  I pray that they would be in the right position for what ever delivery is best for the three of us.  And so far, they're still breech!  I think they've made up their minds!  I was hoping for a vaginal birth, but I'm okay as long as they are safe.

There is a site called Spinning Babies.  It helps breech or transverse babies flip.  There are techniques or exercises you can do, even with twins, that will help them to flip vertex.  I have been doing a couple of them.  But, so far they aren't budging...

Love this picture!! You are right in that it must be hard since they are breech so they are making the decision for you and you have NO CONTROL but it is still scary. I say keep trying the tricks to get them to turn but at least you sound prepared and accepting of a c-sect if required.

I am sure it is a scary thought of having a C-section. I hope those exercises work out for you after all! God is completely in control and His will will be done. I'll be praying for you. I love this picture as well!

I keep thinking of the quote "Does these babies make me look fat?" when I see that picture :) The answer is "Heck no!!! I look fabulous!" Really though, you do! Good luck with the baby spinning!

Wow! You all are the sweetest! Thanks so much! And I'm working really hard to get them "spinning!"

Amanda said...

You look amazing!!
I've been feeling pretty anxious these days too- especially regarding having a c-section. My doctor has already told me that she would highly recommend one due to my babies current position (which she believes they will stay in) so I'm trying to come to terms with it, but, ultimately I'm happy with what is safest for all of us!

You look great! It's hard to feel a lack of control, but at least for me, I think either way of delivery has aspects of the unknown. I am also getting nervous- but like you said I just keep reminding myself that God is in control.
Thanks for the 'spinning' website... I will definitely check it out... I would love it if baby A would flip.

LOVE love love the pic!! You are an adorable pregnant girl!! I totally understand your fears. For some reason, I think being pregnant with multiples is so much more scary because it's not "the norm." But, yes....having faith in those doctors and nurses to do their job is key in all of this!! You'll do great...and I can't wait to see those 2 little boys!!

Did you get to get in the pool & float around? I have heard it is amazing. I'm in the hospital on bed rest. Was suppose to go home yesterday but that got changed. Now I'm here for good. I was really looking forward to some pool time!

You look wonderful at 33 weeks with twins. I look lumpy!

Hi, from ICLW! You are such a beautiful pregnant woman! I think the best thing you can do to prepare for the delivery of your boys is to pray and have faith that it will work out how God intends. Best of luck with everything you have next week!

medicalwife said...

Haa, and I just realized that you aren't doing ICLW this month. I found your blog by clicking on someone else's who is, and therefore, somehow got to thinking you were on it too. Either way, glad to find your blog!

Looking absolutely amazing pool side! And those babies sounds as though they are doing brilliantly. No matter how your babies arrive I just have one wish, that they arrive happy and healthy and safe.
