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...
