Thank you Terri:-) On all counts, the pregnancy, the cl, on thinking of me:-)
I have my 2nd anatomy scan on Friday so I will post new pictures of the babies and of my belly:-) I am already so uncomfortable though UGH! I know not to complain but I am already the size of a full-term pregnancy and it is only getting bigger. Thankfully I only have 17 more weeks rather than 20 though because twins don't go all the way to 40 weeks. The average spontaneous labor for twins is 35 weeks but I am hoping to make it full-term to 37 weeks.
I feel like I have an octopus inside of me because they are kicking and punching me from side to side and high to low. I love that part:-) We are so excited to get to d-day!
Brenda, OMG pics I cant wait LOL!!!! Hee Hee if you think your big now just wait LOL!! I think you are like me (history of VERY large babies) so my prediction is 2 HEALTHY 7lbers at 38weeks!! And of course I am keeping my fingers crossed that you do not go early and that 38 weeks is the number you hit! (even 37 weeks can have some premee issues in twins) Your A BETTER THAN AVERAGE GIRL!!!!! Im so excitied all is going so well for you!!Im sure your U/S will show VERY HEALTHY baby girls!!OMG Brenda its a great event to have your twin pregnancy followed on our board!! Such a positive attitude,positive pregnancy and AWSOME mom you will be!!
They told my sister she should aim for 37 weeks but when she got there they checked her and
I think I want twins now too!!! It would be so nice since the rest of mine are ages 4 -- 13 that they would have a playmate and I wouldn't have to be back on this Board in a year LOL. I love you guys, no offense, but if we all got BFP in Feb at the same time that would be the greatest!! My great-grandmother had 2 sets of twin boys! So I was always afraid of twins, but at this age, I think it would actually be easier; sounds crazy?
LOL Kim I love your exuberance!! Your prediction is music to my ears and I have a sneaking suspicion you may be right. I do have 2 10 pounders under my belt so I'm sure I could let twins grow to a good size before my body would evict them:-)
I am definitely going for a vaginal delivery unless A is breech. I have to actually re-visit my birth expectations with my doctor at my 22 week visit. If they tip my intuition that they intend to convince me to go c-section, I will start finding another office.
I do hope I avoid PTL and preemies at all costs! I know I will be miserable because I am already lol.... but I hope I stick to my knowledge and make it past the 38 week mark.
I can't wait till Friday so I can blow your mind with my new belly shots. I am just crossing the "Freak show belly" threshold any day now lol.
I can't believe how time passes so quickly for the non-pregnant! LOL
