I had a doctor's appointment this morning and I asked if everything went okay with me and the babies at what point could I expect to have my c-section, and she said 39 weeks!!!! Can you believe that??? I thought most doctors took twins at 37-38 weeks. I know it's just one week longer than I planned on, but I also know that by then even one day longer will feel like agony to me.

On a brighter note I passed my 3 hour!!! Matthew's heart rate is in the 150's and Amy's is in the 160's. I go back in 2 weeks for another ultrasound and appointment, starting around 32-34 weeks they are going to start doing non - stress tests on me to keep close watch on me. She said if anything is going to go wrong in a twin pregnancy it's in the last 3 months. here's hoping all goes well - but maybe my body can give them a little nudge at 37 weeks!!!

I can't believe they're making you go with twins until 39!!!
