And I have some big ass babies!!! Baby A is 5 1/2 pounds and fatty Baby B is 6 1/2 pounds! TWELVE pounds of baby?! They also have huge heads. OMG!
They didn’t do an internal check but if last week’s prediction is right, they’ll be arriving somewhere around 36w (which my docs consider full term for twins). If I want a vaginal delivery, that’s probably the perfect time to get this show on the road. And I definitely want a vaginal delivery. I mean, why would I be putting myself through the fun of daily perineal “massages” if I didn’t really want to deliver vaginally?
However, the longer we wait, the bigger Baby B is going to get. The bigger Baby B gets, the higher my chances of a vaginal delivery for A and then a c-section for B. I definitely absolutely do NOT want to have to recover from both types of delivery. And I really don’t want a c-section. But I really want Baby A to be big enough. I mean I guess we roll with it and see what happens. If a c-section is needed, then a c-section it is.
At this rate, Baby A will be over 6 pounds by 36 weeks so I think we’ll be in good shape. I can’t believe how amazing my body is. It held on –and keeps on going– and grew these fatty babies! I’m so proud!
This was my last week of work. I’m home now for the duration. More on my feelings on this topic coming soon.
Oh, and I’m getting a Brazilian wax tomorrow. Should be fun! 😉
Oh! One more thing! My labial varicose vein is pretty much gone! No more blueberry! Yay! I guess the pressure shifted. Thanks babies!
