In the past 2 days I went to my OB, the Perinatalogist/Maternal Fetal Specialists, and had my Hospital tour and all of that has me totally irritated because not only did it tire me out even more but it interfered with some of my sleeping. At the same time, they all made me very happy because things are looking good. Feeling irritated and happy at the same time is weird, don't try it.
My pressure is good. My weight is good. I'm good. So.... they will see me in 2 weeks. Umm, I'm 32 weeks now... I'm having twins... they should already be seeing me every week... but they are not.
The Maternal Fetal Specialists? They are not any better.
Well, I love them because they checked out the twins yesterday and they said every thing is great with them too. Baby girl weighed 4lbs 5oz and baby boy weighed 3lbs 15oz, he just needed one more ounce, so can I assume that today he is 4lbs? I want to think so. Either way, both are good weights. They are growing wonderfully and I'm so proud of them.
So why aren't they better than the OB? Well because at 32 weeks, when I should be seen every week, they asked me to come back in 3 weeks, umm... I'll be 35 weeks and a half.. are they crazy? The average twin birth happens at 34 weeks. Don't get me wrong, I love that they feel so confident and have soooo much faith in my body... but what about my anxiety? I mean really? They expect to do my first internal when I go back at 34 weeks at my OB's office. Seriously? I get that its a good thing, I do, but did I mention my anxiety? I think they should be checking me just to avoid me giving myself a heart attack. The aches and pains and heaviness of my belly remind me quite often that the time is coming, but they don't care.
My OB actually thought it was strange that since last month, the M.F. specialists aren't seeing me every week... she should talk.. she is not any better is she? Ok, let me stop, I'm actually glad they are all so confident because it makes me feel good about my pregnancy, still anxious but good. The only concern is that one of my waters could break before time. I'm not at risk, my fluids are good, but it can happen to anyone so I have to keep off my feet and keep taking it easy, especially considering my humongous belly and my height.
The Hospital Tour..
It went great. They showed us the different rooms, nursery, etc, etc. But they also took us to the one labor and delivery room they have specifically for twins! I can't believe I saw the actual room where they might be born in, I got a bit emotional to be honest but I'm hormonal so that's OK. This room is a big "maybe" though, its only if its going to be natural birth. Otherwise, it will obviously be a C-section in an OR... which these kids seem to want. They are both still heads up, they've actually been like that for a while now so we just have to wait and see if they decide to turn.
The 4D pics..
Both of them gave us a hard time, we pretty much just got one picture each. His was taken at 30weeks and hers was taken at 32weeks. I don't like that the pics weren't taken on the same day but apparently these kids want to show they are independent of each other already. They are not very clear but its what we got, check them out!
