    Christy! WoW one month to go! Goes sooo fast! I'm so excited for you. As for bedrest she said the next few weeks were really important - they will check it weekly and if doesn't improve then admit (yeesh). She said the cerclage was studied to be unbeneficial, possibly detrimental in twin pg. So I will do my best to follow dr's orders and just take it one day at a time.

    I know I'm not a pregnant mommy...but I still like to check in on all of you.

    Cindy...I'm so sorry you are having the problems that you are. Things just don't come easy for you. Glad the doctor caught it and now can do everything to maintain a healthy pregnancy. I'm sure you are getting bored, 2 days of bedrest was enough for me. Congrats on 2 little boys. It's a good thing you got a little start on getting ready for your babes. I'll be praying for you and your little boys.

    Cindy: I'm sorry to hear about the bed rest, but congrats on the 2 little boys!!! Just take it one day at a time and everything will be okay. Do you do any crafts that could keep you occupied while on bedrest? Knitting or crocheting are always good

    Christi: wow, you are getting so close!!!

    Sorry for the long overdue update.
    It's been a while since I could even turn on my computer, but it's so worth it.
    My twins were born 2 weeks ago by scheduled c-section. This time has been a little blur so there are some details I don't remember perfectly. We went in the hospital and everything was going as planned. They started the c-section, and doctor said he had found Baby A's feet (he was breeched) and I guess he wasn't that ready to come out, because he decided to play peekaboo and hid them from the doctor. His cord was wrapped around his neck with a double loop, but as soon as he came out he let out the most beautiful cry you could ever hear. I immediately started to cry myself. He weighed 5lbs3oz and measured 18 inches. They put him on my chest and I hugged him and kissed him. Next was Baby B. He weighed 5lbs11oz and measured 19.5 inches. Doctor pulled him out, and I immediately noticed the difference from one baby to the next. His cry was very weak. I kept asking if he was ok and nobody was telling me anything. After what seemed like an eternity, they told me he was having some respiratory distress and he needed help with oxygen. I couldn't see him immediately as they rushed him out to the NICU for observation. It wasn't until next morning that I could get up and DH took me to see him. He was in an isolette with oxygen through his nose and an IV for his feedings, and they were waiting for his blood cultures to come back to see how long he would have to be there. My ob was amazing (the same one that didn't read my chart and asked if twins ran in my family), and he let me stay in the hospital one more day so we could be closer to baby B for at least one more day.
    Then, the pathology for the placentas came back and they showed that both of them had some signs of infection, and since baby B showed symptoms of distress when he was born, even though his blood cultures came back negative, they decided to put him on antibiotics for 10 days (the longest 10 days of my life) as a precaution. Leaving the hospital with just one baby while having the other stay behind was the hardest thing in my life. And everyday was just as heartbreaking when we would visit him at the hospital to leave him behind once more.
    Last friday, he was discharged and reunited with his brother, and even though it's been a little rough to adjust to having two babies home (although not as hard as I thought it would be), it's been a true blessing, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

    Congrats!! I've been waiting anxiously for an update from you but understand you've been very busy and I'm sure under lots of stress. Glad to hear that Baby B is home now and doing better. Are the babes adjusting to be with eachother again? Hope things continue to go well.

    Dani - Congratulations!! What beautiful little babies! I'm sorry that those first days were so stressful, but they look like happy and healthy little babies now. Hope you're recovering well and enjoying your little miracles!

    Christy - I can't believe you're so close! Your story is one of the first that I followed when I found this board, and it's so nice to see you getting SOOOO close to meeting your LO.

    Cindy - I'm sorry about the bedrest. I hope you're doing well!

    I've been away from the board for a while, just checking in on everyone here and there. All is going well here - still holding out on finding out gender. I feel so big right now, I can't imagine that I could get bigger!

    Thanks for taking the time to post the twins' birth story, Dani! It must have been hard leaving one baby in the hospital. Glad they're both home now. That hair is so thick!

    Christy...can't wait to "meet" your LO!

    Cindy...How are you doing with the bedrest? Any news?

    Kris...congrats again on graduating from the RE. I remember how slow everything seemed when I switched to an ob after the constant monitoring I was used to.
