PG update for me & a belly pic - oh yea baby

Had my appt today. Both babies are transverse. They are bunk bed style. Not cool guys! I want you head down! Oh well, they have time to flip! I was worried because I hadn't felt a lot of movement in a couple days. I'm so scared to go to triage to get checked because I think everyone will think I'm a hypochondriac. Anyway, she made me go for an NST today and they passed with FLYING colors. Might have been the caffeine - hehe. I go for another on friday and twice a week from now on. I only have 5 more weeks to go! YAY!!! I'm measuring 42 weeks right now. Here is the picture evidence:

What a great belly pic! Glad to hear the babies are cooking well! Let's hope for a big flip to happen in the next few weeks!

You look awesome! Hot mama!

I'm sending you lots of baby flipping vibes. Here's hoping they go head down (if they do, will you wait for spontaneous labor?) Woot!

Ginny- my back is good. It's my groin area that hurts. I literally feel like it's taken a beating with a hammer! Lol
Laurie- yes!! Do it!!
Audra- I won't wait, I'll deliver at 37 weeks still. The rate of stillbirth/complications in twins goes up the further you get to 40 weeks. I have read 37/38 weeks is the sweet spot for twins. Plus, I don't even think my body would make it. I'll be surprised if I actually make it to 37 weeks.

WOW, that's a BEAUTIFUL belly!!! Glad everyone is doing well. I hope they flip for you!

37 weeks is perfect for twins! It's amazing getting that far with multiples. I was 37 weeks 1 day. My doc wanted me to go further, he said he wouldn't "evict" them unless they started showing signs of distress, but they were ready to come out as soon as I stopped taking the meds to stop the contractions. So 37 weeks it was! I can't wait to see those little ones!!!! How big are they guessing they are right now?

You look great Smile

My two didn't settle into their 'final' positions until I was 36 weeks so there's time left for head down yet. I had to go for fortnightly US scans to check that they were growing and where they were and they (well, usually just Sophie - Twin Dirol was always in a different position up until that point. I didn't feel a lot of movement (kicks etc) towards the end either, just 'pressure' from them pushing. They must have just been packed too tightly in there - I have no idea how I didn't feel them flipping position up and down.

You're doing amazing, especially over the hot months Smile - I was heavily pregnant with my twins over our summer here (NZ) and wanted to spend all day lying down in the air conditioned rooms. Are you working (outside the home)?

Tara - thanks! My best guess is 4lbs each right now. I have an appt Aug 10th to check weights and cervix.

Glad I have time for them to move. I still think they are bunk bed style right now.

Jules - I am a SAHM, thank God! I couldn't work right now. LOL! I stay inside or in water if I'm outside!
