This week's appointments

As you can see I'm only posting my updates once a week. I'm now officially boring!
Being home doesn't give me much inspiration and to tell you the truth my pregnancy brain still prevents me from writing. I can't seem to formulate my ideas properly, and trust me I have lots, but whenever I try to write them down I just end up confusing myself. I just hope my brain comes back when these babies are born... what are the chances? Anyway....

I am now 36w4d! I actually made it this far and I know I'm very very lucky but I must also thank my doctor for putting me out on bed rest from early on, it really works =)
I had my regular OB appt today but I also had an u/s on Monday... my doctor was not happy that the peri would not see me weekly because of the gestational diabetes so I'm actually back to seeing both of them weekly. I'm not complaining, I love seeing the babies! I also got the flu shot and now I'm praying I don't get sick, I always get sick when I take it, but I decided to go for it because of the babies, just in case... and if I get sick then I know my theory is correct.

So far we are all doing good. The babies were not measured for growth again since it was only 4 days in between sonograms, but we did find out that they moved. Baby girl is still heads down but leaning slightly sideways to my left and baby boy is completely sideways... that piece of info combined with my internal today, which shows no dilation yet, seem to be pointing me towards a future with a c-section in it.

No ifs, ands or buts....

If I do go into labor on my own and they are not both heads down it will be a c-section. And if I make it to my scheduled date, even if they are both heads down, it seems that they wont let me try natural birth because of me being tiny and the fact that they have really good sizes so far, in 2 weeks they might be too big making it a little dangerous for them, well mostly for baby B (the boy). Its funny that they call me tiny and huge at the same time, I think even my doctor's eye was popping when she saw my belly. She is happy and surprised that I made it this far but she still thinks I'll make it to my scheduled c-section and at this point I'm starting to believe it too. Wow! October 12th, here I come...


  1. Thanks for the update! I definitely think every day "I wonder if Shanny has had her twins?" :) Glad things are still going great!

  2. Wow! Glad eveything is looking good!!! I was waiting to hear news of them being born, but its really good that they are still baking away!

  3. Glad to hear all is well....And way to go Mama for making it to the 36 plus mark with twins...Thats awesome:))) Keep us all posted.....Hugs!!!

  4. (In the risk of sounding motherly let me just say...) I am so proud of you!! Almost 37 weeks. You.Are.Amazing! I know it's not in some peoples birth plan but I would be totally fine with a c-section. No worries, no complications for baby, not too much pain (in the beginning) for you. I would be very excited about it if I were you. I know I said this before but I just cannot wait to see your precious bundles and learn their names. I feel like I'm their long lost distant aunt that they will never meet, and probably never know anything about. lol!! So excited for you!

  5. I am so happy you've made it this far!!! I was wondering about you since we haven't heard from you. Did they tell you what you were measuring? At 35 weeks I was measuring at 52 weeks which my dr (who had also had twins herself) told me I was the largest pregnant woman she'd ever measured in her 15+ yrs of being a dr. Nice!!

  6. That's awesome you have made it this far! My c-section was scheduled at 38w1d but I begged for them to get them out of me so it happened at 37w1d. :) I hope you didn't read my c-section post recently because I had a terrible c-section!! I have my fingers crossed for you!

  7. The first thing I said when I saw this was, "Shanny didn't have those babies yet? " lol. I am glad everything is going well and I can't wait to meet those little ones.

  8. omg oct. 12th is 12 days away!! so soon...hang in there girl! And make sure to take a final bump pic for us. :)


I heart comments, thanks for leaving one =)
